Fiscal Fast – 7 Day Menu

So here it is. I’m not sure whether or not it’s what experts would consider nutritionally balanced but it’s certainly all good, simple, cheap wholesome meals to keep us going and enough variety to please everyone in the house hold.


  • Eggs, toast and spinach
  • Cereals and fruit
  • Semolina and rasins
  • Pancakes and Honey or lemon
  • Porridge
  • Musli

There’s enough different things there to pick and choose what they want each day and the best part is we already have all the breakfast items and I’m sure there’s enough to get us through two weeks at least.


  • Jam sandwiches
  • Cheese on crackers
  • Chicken salad
  • Carrot and coriander soup
  • Sweet potato soup
  • Eggs and baked beans on toast
  • Peanut butter sandwhiches

There’s other things in the cupboard to go in sandwhiches too. Lunches. Check


  • Roast chicken and potatoes with veg, Yorkshire Puddings  and gravy
  • Beef Stew
  • Prawn and vegetable Fried Rice
  • Lasagne
  • Tuna and Pasta Bake
  • Chicken Curry with rice
  • Cottage Pie

Mostly vegetables to stock up on then we are set. 7 easy to cook, wholesome meals that everyone in the house likes!


  • Pancakes
  • Angel Delight
  • Bread and Butter Pudding
  • Ice Cream
  • Fruit
  • Toblerone Cheese cake * honestly I can not believe this is still I’m the freezer! I guess the fact that I have to remember in advance to get it out and defrost it has something to do with that!*

I should note here that we do not always eat dessert, I’m usually far to full after dinnet but since we have a few options already available to us I’ve put them on the menu anyway.


  • Fruit
  • Bread sticks
  • Biscuits
  • Popcorn
  • Pumpkin Seeds

All of which are already in the cupboards just a little restock of the fruit bowl needed.

I’ll also be buying a bottle of squash as trying to get the young ones to drink tap water all day is near on impossible.

So there you have it. It feels good to have a plan. In Shaa Allah I ‘ll change it up a bit for the following week.

The shopping list and my estimate bring me in under budget by about £4 but I’ll post an update on the exact costs once I’ve tackled the actual shopping!

Wish me luck!
