Food that is in season is always good value, so you could base your recipe on or include foods that are in season in May: asparagus, rhubarb, new potatoes, lamb, watercress, spring onions, to name just a few.
Other money-saving ideas could be:
- Dishes using cheaper ingredients – cheap cuts of meat or vegetarian
- Meals using leftovers
- Meals using up the ends of packets
- Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
- Packed lunches
- Meals that use less energy to cook
- Pressure cooking
- Slow cooking
- Faster cooking – less oven time for example
- Batch cooking for the freezer
- Sustainable foods
- Food you have grown yourself
- Meals from reduced food in the supermarket
