Food is cheap
Many students are used to
living off cheap food, but the real challenge is to get beyond living
just on pasta and pesto or pot noodles and get some varitey in your
diet while still spending less than £1.30 a day on your food.
Hopefully these recipies should provide some inspiration, even after
the $2 a day week is over. They are carefully designed to provide all
the nutrition you need, and are easy and quick to make. Only two need
an oven, and the only special cooking impliment needed is a cheese
If you need more reasons, you can read the cooking manifesto.

You don't need to print them all out though, when you join the
challenge we will give you a nicely bound pamphlet version of them all,
plus exclusive quick ideas!
Don't worry if you don't have the herbs and spices that some of the
recipies suggest (although none are essential) we will give you a
'spice pack' when you take part that gives you all the little extras
like oil and herbs you need to put some magic in your cooking!
Most of the recipies are vegetarian, primarily for cost reasons, feel
free to substitute for real meat if you can't do with out it -
but consider giving some of the alternatives a go, they might save you
a lot of money!
