1 Day, 1 Pound, 3 Meals – Limited Budget Food Challenge



This is just another exercise where I will impose an artificial budget of £1 for 1 day, to see if I can work around that to make three nice meals - breakfast, lunch and evening meal.

So this isn't £1 a day for a week - it's £1 for 1 day only - there is no scaled budget here to save by buying things in any kind of bulk

Parameters for this challenge include::
NO spices or ingredients from my own store cupboards (tap water only)
BUT I can add in anything else that I can get for free without stealing.

Just in case it isn't abundantly clear: this is just an exercise to try to stimulate my own creativity. This is not intended to represent any kind of real-world hardship scenario.

    Pinning a fresh comment because people are making really horrible assumptions about my treatment of Eva.

    If you have been a subscriber for any amount of time, you won't be in any doubt about how much I love this little dog.
    If you think that me barking 'shut up' at her (and that's what this was – big dog barking at little dog) in this video is remotely any kind of abuse, you must be new here and you probably don't know me, or Eva.
    For those few of you that stretched your own imagination to the notion that I must be hitting, kicking or otherwise physically abusing Eva. or described my raised voice as 'screaming' – Your mind supplied that detail. You have a problem.

    In case there could be any doubt, this little doggo is my cherished companion and has saved my life. Here's what you really need to see:

    How is bread so cheap there? In suburban Vancouver Canada a fresh loaf of standard multigrain is ~$4 C(2.35 GBP). I've never seen a loaf marked down to .34C(.2GBP).

    Watching this while on my 10th day of home quarantine.and running out of ideas on what to eat. Freaking N-COV!!

  • Posted on Mar 27, 2020 at 10:50 am

    I watch this imagining it to be similar to one dollar… Nope, bread here cost at least $1.60. So it's more like 1 day for $4 dollars for Australians…

  • Posted on Mar 27, 2020 at 15:24 pm

    You are great. Inspiring. And eloquent. I would listen to an audio book, should you choose to narrate one.

    For some reason i find this very satisfying.👍 keep uploading more if these videos💥

  • Posted on Mar 27, 2020 at 19:32 pm

    Amazing. Just goes to show what you can get for a pound. I do think Tesco does discount food more than most stores so you can get a bargain if you leave it until last minute to shop.

  • Posted on Mar 27, 2020 at 19:42 pm

    So if i had ONLY the oil thing and the bought ingridients, id make

    Other thing- oil, leftover onion,leftover tomato and peas
    Btw u got a great del at tesco

    You can use roadside wheat to make bread. All you need to do is grind it up to a powder, put two parts water one part “flour”, and let it sit. Treat the mixture as if it was alive, because there is a chance it is. You can grow your own yeast. If you can spot tiny bubbles, then you got yourself some yeast. Mix the yeast and the roadside flour together, let it rise, and finally, bake it.

  • Posted on Mar 28, 2020 at 22:34 pm

    Mate, do you do these challenges for the videos, or do you do them because you're slightly financially challenged, not attacking just curious, because I would be confused if you did this for fun. Good video love the idea

  • Posted on Mar 28, 2020 at 22:50 pm

    well done mate you made that mix of ingredients into a meal!
