I'm back, but even though I've been away I've still had my Challenge head on, deciding what to buy and what I really needed to keep myself on track and help myself feel better about what I'm eating.
With this in mind I decided to 'splash out' an extra 30p on a loaf more like my usual favourite seeded type, so I chose a Tesco own brand multigrain loaf for 85p instead of the value 55p loaf I bought last time.
I also got four bananas off the market while I was away, so I could freeze them once they had ripened a bit more ready to make into a morning smoothie with the apples I also bought from Tesco as shown above. I figured that along with the homegrown spinach that was one of this week's choices, I would be getting at least three of my five a day into to me first thing in the morning, making it less of a struggle later with the foods that I have got left.
I also splashed out another 35p on these reduced price baking potatoes from Booths when I was in there, everywhere I go I have my eyes scanning for yellow stickers ... perhaps that could be another Challenge further down the line!!
So a total of £2.33 spent this week ...
... leaving me with just £4.28 to see out the final eleven days of the Challenge.
