Broke Student Guide: Cheap meals

By FreshSocial 08 Aug 2017

A student lifestyle can soon add up, but your meals don't have to cost that much, especially once you cut out junk food!

Meals don't have to be bland and boring just because they're cheaper either...

Follow our broke student guide to cheap, yet delicious meals:

BREAKFAST

  1. Omelette

    Eggs are a good source of protein, giving you a great start to the day! All you need is 3 eggs, a handful of spinach, cottage cheese and a tomato. 
  2. Porridge cakes

    Jazz up your porridge oats with these different flavoured cakes - banana, cinnamon or berry. Either way, you only need 4 ingredients.
  3. Pancakes

    Mix eggs and flour with ingredients you've probably already got in the fridge - milk and butter. Then what topping will it be, strawberries, lemon and sugar or Nutella? 

LUNCH

  1. Pitta pockets
    Halloumi & roasted veg pitta pockets
    Want something quick, easy and cheap? This is exactly what you need, and they work with just about any filling!
  2. Baguette Pizza
    French Bread Pizza Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com Perfect game day food!
    All you need is a baguette, tomato puree, mozzarella and your toppings of choice - simple. Cheaper and healthier than a takeaway! 
  3. Stuffed peppers

    You can put mince, halloumi or tuna into peppers and it'll taste amazing but your cheapest (and very yummy) option is couscous with feta cheese.

DINNER

  1. Tuna pasta bake

    A student basic, yet essential. Tuna and cheese is a great combination, so make sure you include plenty of each! 
  2. Chilli con-Carne
    What's not to love about this chilli con carne recipe, it tastes delicious, it's cheap and simple to make, it's one of your five-a-day, it freezes so you can make a big batch and save some for another day, and best of all it's only 181 calories so I can have an ice cream for pudding without feeling guilty.
    Knowing how to make a good chilli is important, and a cheap one is even more important. You could serve with rice one day and have with a baked sweet potato the next.
  3. Chicken, roasted veg & rice

    Buying all of the ingredients could be pricey but this is a perfect meal-prep option. Cook everything together, freeze it and you've got dinner sorted for 3 or 4 nights.

Happy cooking!
