The ‘Live Below The Line’ initiative starts today – its a campaign that invites people to live on £1 a day for all their food and drink in order to raise awareness of food poverty (and to raise money for charity). I’ve signed up for it and, given that my blog started many moons ago as a place to catalogue my frugal food efforts, it seems like a good place to share my experience. So, at 11.30am on Day One my thoughts are this:
– Bloody hell, I need a coffee
– Bread takes AGES to make when you’re hungry – I wish I’d started at 7am!
– Thank god I (unlike millions of others) can see a light at the end of the tunnel
Anyway, I did all my shopping in advance and my plan for today is toast for breakfast (homemade bread), carrot soup for lunch and lentil dahl for dinner. I’ll post pictures and recipes as I go along.
