Yep, Kate Barrett managed to prove that you can eat healthily and on a budget! This frugal foodie has managed to save a fortune by knowing what to eat, where to get it from and not wasting anything…even out of date foods (although I advise you to exercise caution when doing this). Kate’s guide to gourmet meals for pennies has now become an internet hit, and it’s not surprising seeing as many families are feeling the crunch right now and using foodbanks as a means of putting food on the table. Kate has mastered shopping, she has clocked exactly when is the best time to grab luxury produce from the bargain bins, as well as shopping daily (often in the evening) to get the best deals, and eats things well past their sell by dates! By doing this, Kate and her husband enjoy dishes such as venison meatballs for 74p, pork fillet for 59p and sea bass for £1.99. Credit to her for doing this and for proving that you can eat healthy and delicious foods on a budget.
