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:
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.
- Porridge cakes
Jazz up your porridge oats with these different flavoured cakes - banana, cinnamon or berry. Either way, you only need 4 ingredients.
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?
- Pitta pockets
Want something quick, easy and cheap? This is exactly what you need, and they work with just about any filling!
- Baguette Pizza
All you need is a baguette, tomato puree, mozzarella and your toppings of choice - simple. Cheaper and healthier than a takeaway!
- 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.
- Tuna pasta bake
A student basic, yet essential. Tuna and cheese is a great combination, so make sure you include plenty of each!
- Chilli con-Carne
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.
- 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.
