Weekly meal planner


Who says it has to be a quarter, a quarter and half? And ‘like I am gluten and wheat intolerant and pasta makes me fat!!’ Why does this article have to revolve around you and your fat? If you’re only buying enough meat to fill a quarter of two plates and enough veg to fill half then how on earth do you manage to spend £70 a week??? Family of 6 here and my lot eat plenty of fruit, veg and good quality meat. I never spend £70!

Where are all the veggies??? A plate should be ONE quarter meat, ONE quarter starch, ie rice, pasta and HALF veg! Would be nice to see a good week plan for those of us who NEED veggies, like I am gluten and wheat intolerant and pasta makes me fat!! 🙁 There are opnly two of us but I am trolling internet cos we can’t seem to shop for less than £70 a week and this is AFTER buying loads of the budget brands!!


Has anyone recipes for a good diet for a gout sufferer?

Hi Josie, Have you seen our Brighton Rock Buns? http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/276900/Brighton-rock-buns They’re similar to rock cakes and you could always replace the currants with raspberries. Let us know if this is the sort of recipe you were looking for 🙂


Please can you help me. When I was at school50 odd years ago we made some buns called raspberry buns. I think they are like rock cakes. Have you a recipe for them please.


This is so useful! I’d also like to have lunch ideas for the weekend though and some cheap and not too difficult to make desserts. As a family, we eat porridge with fruit/syrup and toast in the morning which is dirt cheap (and healthy!) so my weekly shop isn’t really increased by breakfast. And for lunch, the kids eat at school and my husband and I buy sandwiches, expensive yes but for convenience it’s worth it and I’d rather save on my main shop than make lunch each day too – couldnt face that!


Some good meal ideas and the recipes are all easy to follow, but will there be more weekly menus?


Good idea and i have tried and tested a few of the recipes but i agree – it’s expensive and one meal per day definately doesn’t feed my family for &#194&#16340.


Some good recipes there, but have to agree with others, what do you feel your family for the other 2 meals?


i think that &#194&#16320per head is quite expensive for a week. i run a cafe supplying an alternative to meals on wheels but i make them nicer and bigger portions and i can do this for just over &#194&#1632.00 per person per meal. this works out at &#194&#16314.70 per week. and dont forget that you still have to buy for breakfast,lunch and any snacks so be careful you’ve checked all the extras also.

the recepies sound nice but i cant have spicy food due to health problems


yes this is a good idea, but not if you are on a gluten and dairy free diets, then the costs of buying the speicel foods you need it has almost doubled, un less you are one of the lucky one’s who get most of the basics from the doctors, if not you are looking at &#194&#16360 plus for a week


I agree, great idea doing the shopping list and everything, but is there only ever going to be this one week’s shopping? I did this over a month ago and i’ve had to fend for myself since!!!


great stuff! But are you going to carry on giving us weekly menus?? I’m certainly going to give this one a try. Thank you


Recepies are excellent but one meal a day doesn’t feed a family for &#194&#16340.

Pear Bircher muesli with pecans and ginger

Print Page

  • Serves: 4

  • Prep time: 15 mins

  • Total time: 15 mins

  • Skill level: Easy peasy

  • Costs: Cheap as chips

The beauty of Bircher is that you don’t have to stand over a stove to cook it and lose some of your porridge to the bottom of the pan. An overnight of soaking the oats in the fridge means dishing up quickly in the morning, leaving you more time to get ready for the day – or maybe even spend an extra hour in bed! We’ve gone for a twist on the apple variety using pear instead, with an added crunchy topping made with pecans, ginger and maple syrup. Yum!


  • 3 dessert pears, peeled, cored and then grated
  • 1tsp ground ginger
  • 300g porridge oats
  • 650ml mixed apple and pear juice
  • 4tbsp maple syrup
  • 1tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 ball stem ginger, chopped finely plus a tbsp of syrup from the jar
  • 75g pecan halves, roughly chopped
  • 30g sultanas

That’s goodtoknow

Bircher muesli is easy to play around with and adapt. Try out different fruit combos to see what you’d like and even squeeze in one of your five a day!


  1. In a large bowl, combine the grated pear and ground ginger. Add the oats and juice, stir well and then leave overnight.
  2. Whilst the oats are soaking make your crunchy topping. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F/175°C/Electric Fan 160°C/Gas Mark 4 and prepare a baking tray with baking paper. Combine the two syrups, oil and then add the pecans and chopped ginger. Spread on the baking tray and pop in the oven.
  3. After 10 mins take the tray out, give it a quick stir and add the sultanas. Give it another little stir and put back into the oven for another 10 mins. Remove from the oven, cool and then transfer to an airtight container until ready to use.
  4. About 30-45 mins before you’re ready to plate up, take the soaked oats out of the fridge so it gets close to room temp. Dish up into bowls and then scatter on the pecan and ginger topping. Drizzle over some extra maple syrup if you’d like, then serve.
