Has anyone made their own personal meal-plans for uni? I'm going to Lancaster on the 27th and think I meal plan will be super-useful in not helping me overspend.

So far I only have a few brief ideas - porridge with various fruits for breakfast, a handful of rice-based meals, omlettes and similar things.

If anyone has a meal plan they use/are going to use I'd love if they could share it.

I actually prepared one a few weeks ago. Ignore the cost bit, that's bound to change if you don't use Sainsbury's or are able to find good deals.

My meal plan might bore you, but just thought I'd help :P.

I don't have a set meal plan but have scribbled down a few recipes/meal ideas. I really like pasta and it's cheap so I'll be eating a lot of macaroni cheese/pasta bakes/carbonara. You can buy good quality fresh burgers for not too much and add bacon/cheese/salad, and I will probably make a stir fry sometimes as well. If money's a bit tight, you could have an omelette or jacket potato to fill you up got next to nothing. There's some good recipes on the BBC website as well

I actually have very detailed meal plans as I track my calories, macros, micros and spending: it basically boils down to porridge for breakfast, rice with various sauces/beans/vegetables for dinner, and protein shakes through out the day, with maybe the occasional chicken on the weekend. This probably seems very boring, but it's cheap, I get all the protein I need, and I can always fit in variation with the toppings on the porridge or the sauce on the rice.

Just worried about getting protein deliveries at the uni accommodation...

I had a huge tub of protein delivered to my university. It came in a box though so I got no weird looks

Haha, I'm more worried about being in for deliveries etc. My uni said they don't deal with parcels, so I'm not suree if I'd have to stay at home on delivery day or what.

You'll not end up sticking to a plan because you'll become inconsistent. Believe me.

It depends. I couldn't imagine being catered though - what happens if you miss a meal!

Keele was really nice when I went there for the open day, I live nearby and probably would have went there had I not got into Sheffield.
