I just did a shop @ Tesco online and including the delivery charge and minus my loyalty coupons I redeemed, I spent a little under £100.
What I got for this was 12 pints of fresh milk, 6 loaves of bread, 1.5Kg of skinless chicken breasts, assorted fresh veg (several kilo's), 2Kg of
lean beef steak mince, 1Kg of sausages (good ones too!), 2Kg of lamb chops, 20 oranges, 10 bananas, a couple of boxes of cereals, 6 frozen chicken
pieces with the Southern coating (they are quite yummy), 6 Kievs, some pizza's, 2Kg of pasta, various salad vegetables (again a couple of Kilo's),
mini-kiev balls (they are yummy too!) and other odds and ends for the house.
I am probably missing alot of what I bought, but the point is that I got a huge quantity of fresh food for under a ton, which will last me, the missus
and the two parasites we call children for much of the month.
As you can see, the vast majority of the food is stuff you have to prepare for yourself and is, on the whole, fresh.
Now, if I was to feed the family on processed, pre-prepared foods or takeaway, I would be lloking at an average cost per meal of around £8-£10. That
is anywhere between £240-£300 a month.
there is no excuse to eat crap, other than ignorance or laziness.
