    because you have no actual nutrition in your system so all you body can work on is fat

    You can't be serious.

    What are you going to do after uni?! Still keep buying ready meals? When you've got a gf, you'll impress her by making a ready meal?

    Unis is the best time to learn, as it's not your kitchen that will get ruined. And everyone else is bad at cooking or trying weird combinations too.

    Some ready meals take 10 mins to cook, which is the same as a bowl of pasta!

    these websites are for people who are old, incontinent or have had their electric scooters stolen.

    hahahaha one of those websites is!!

    lol

    no www.dining-made-easy.co.uk is luxury frozen food (which sounds totally gay) but it means very high quality food that is frozen in air (which is an expensive process)

    supermarkets mass produce ready meals - the quality is rubbish.

    I suppose these meals are equivalent to Tesco Finest or Sainsbury Taste the Difference?

    Anway, I'll let you guys know if the quality is any good next week,

    I eat at my gf when I stay at hers. She lives in chelsea (fairly close but I spend less than half my time there). I'm 23. I've been to uni. I'm doing a second degree.

    I just have better things to do with my time. I eat out all the time (I can afford it now that I work). I spend £15+ a night on eating out. I don't care if I spend £6 a day on food if it is good food.

    I went through uni eating halls food in 1st year (yuk) and being cooked for during other years. I just don't care for cooking.

    I'm not bad at cooking. It's just boring. I get hungry, I eat. I get on with life. ... plus I want good food, not rubbish.

    Hmm, I'm kinda indifferent towards this. What I do think, however, is that there should be some special websites set up for young university students with simple, cheap recipes to prepare. So that they can just print it off or whatever. However there's prolly something already online like that now, so knowing me it's already been done :rolleyes:

    AT this moment I'm eating a Tesco FINEST Red Thai Curry with Rice. It is really nice.

    I got it for £2, reduced from approx £4 at the Tesco next to Liverpool Street station (in the bit where they reduce stuff near to the "use-by" date).

    I have now got a freezer. yay.

    Last night I spend £11 on a pizza hut thing (medium pizza, potato wedges & garlic bread). It was nice but not great value really.

    Seriously... these "luxury" ready meals are the way to go... (if you have a part time job/can afford it)

    (but like another poster has said.. there is stuff you can make easily and cheaply ... like pasta. Check out www.thesite.org they normally have good advice for students and stuff)



    ..back to the Tesco Finest meal I am eating - it tastes like restaurant food. rEally. well worth the money

    Wouldnt live off of ready meals though, they are full of additives and preservatives. Im not wise on health but something tells me that's not a great idea. I know that sounds abit serious, but 3 years of unhealthy food may lead to high blood pressure, heart problems and obesity.

    Cooking aint hard anyways! -Makes u feel all mature.

    I'm surprised nobody has pointed this out, but if you're staying in university halls then there's very little chance you will be allowed your own freezer in your room - most universities don't allow you to have your own large electrical items (fridges/freezers/microwaves etc) in your room because of the potential fire risk.

    And surely, if you're spending a fiver a night on your evening meal, then thats £35 a week without even thinking of breakfast and lunch...you can't sustain that level of spending on a student budget.
