    The Brexit
    Idk they might, by the power invested in the new PM who knows what will happen?

    :afraid:

    We are heading towards a new economical shift, so whatever economical implications we will face, will be a result of our new economical shift.
    If we had chose to remain or leave, the outcome would have been similar, and thus the EU would have not have saved the UK if things were to really go downhill.

    what a lazy excuse, go to morrisons or any supermarket with a salad bar, fill the large container with the salad+egg+more salad+rice+noodles and it'll last you all night. this costs like £3 and you can even see the people behind the counter preparing it which is assuring :daydreaming:
    Idiot and what eat salad everyday? You need a balanced diet

    actually I think there is a salad bar, but its right at the side..

    My Morrisons opened like 2 years ago, but the Tesco that has been for atleast 10 years is miles better.

    Also, do you use your Morrisons bakery? Mine is actually a scam, yes they scam us... The cookies always have best before date as the day after, so the cookies are always hard.

    But they can't fool me, I always press down on the cookies to check:h:

    Raw meat, sauces, vegetables and fruits are all relatively cheap and go a long way. It's when people take those cheap meats, sauces, vegetables and fruits and package them into a single product, they cost double their worth. So make things yourself and you'll get far, snacks, ready made sandwiches, all that stuff are overpriced. Some People in Greece are really poor but look at their diets and what they eat, it's all natural and homemade because it's all they can afford and it's also their culture, but they live really long and are extremely healthy at 80 so you don't need to be rich to enjoy food and be healthy.

    Price of good quality food certainly is on the high side. Population pressures easing off + technological gains + growth of agriculture in TROTW + avoidance of trade barriers currently imposed by EU customs union should help

    Only way to feed yourself these days is to buy process crap from iceland. If you want a balanced healthy diet be prepared to find employment paying 50k per year after tax

    Shop at Aldi, the prices for stuff like fruit and veg is really good, I usually have an entire basket full of fruit and veg and everything else in the other one and it usually comes out under £30

    Question: Why or How is Aldi so cheap??

    Fresh vegetables depends on availability of local markets. In London, there are absolutely loads of fresh fruits and veg stalls that sell tomatoes for £0.69/kg and many other things for less than £2.00/kg.

    The Asian diet which uses rice as a staple is incredibly cheap, £0.05 to £0.10 is more than filling for even the heartiest of appetites. It's much better to buy rice in bulk, it stores quite well in a cool/dry plastic tote.

    Raw meats are cheap if you source them from either wholesalers like Bookers, or websites like JJFoodServices which currently has an offer on wings for £8.99/10kg. Normal prices of chicken is about £1.30 to £1.50 per kg, pork is about £2.50 per kg, cheese is about £2.00 to £3.00 per kg, beef is about £3.50 per kg. Ribs are pretty good value, too. But you do need a large freezer to store the food.

    Other forms of protein can be fairly cheap, like 10 large eggs from Iceland/Lidl for £1.00 or canned sardines/tuna for about £3.00 per kg for sandwiches and pasta.

    Spices are cheap if you visit ethnic stores (Polish/Eastern European, Persian/Arabian, Oriental/Chinese, etc).

    Bread, potatoes, milk etc are cheap if you source them from somewhere like Aldi or Lidl.

    Food is not too expensive, if you know where to look. If you don't, supermarkets will charge you about 50% more for most things and 100-150% more on some others (especially meat).

    Toiletries are cheap enough from places like Poundland and Savers, which usually sells branded products for about 30-50% less than supermarkets.
