Meal Plan: Fakeaway all day, everyday

Wouldn’t it be lovely if eating out every day for all three meals was a) not expensive and b) didn’t mean 1,000,000 calories?

I decided to see if I could create a meal plan from different local and chain restaurants (btw: I am from Worcester, United Kingdom).

My biggest aim from this is to show that you can create some of your restaurant favourites without piling on the pounds or breaking the bank. You can always make the meal plan cheaper with alternative substitutes.

The biggest piece of advice I can offer to keep costs down is

~ buy reduced meat whenever you can get your hands on it, it keeps the costs down and can last, on average, 3 months in the freezer even when purchased on its expiry date ~

So anyway, keep scrolling to see which restaurants inspired this weeks fakeaway meal plan.
