#196 Eat well on a Budget! with Dr Rupy Aujla

17 May 2023

Today we’re talking all about eating well on a budget and we’re covering a selection of topics including:

  • The cost of living and average costs of food shops in the UK
  • What healthy means and how we can achieve that on a budget
  • Quick wins and general rules of thumb for eating well for less
  • What I do before the shop, at the shop and during the week
  • Some of my favourite budget-friendly ingredients and also what not to cut corners on
  • Plus I dive into proteins, frozen vs fresh and how you could potentially save £1000s per year on your food bill
