Affordable 5  Day  Meals   After an enjoyable summer of eating burgers, hotdogs and ice-cream it is time to get back on track with better food choices. I know going back to work and university, you may not have any time to indulge in some good food and for your buck, but in fact you do! Adjusting to a new lifestyle can be daunting but no need to worry. You can look back at Signature S.O’s previous editions and see some great meals for a cheap price and this can keep you going for your long day ahead. Signature S.O have recipes which can even be homemade, giving you the option of being able to experiment with a lot of different flavours and appeal to your taste buds. Fruits in the morning is always one of the best options and will fit in well with your busy schedule. This will also provide you with the energy you will need until your next meal! So if you don’t have time to eat anything too time consuming in the morning, just cut up some fruit and make a fruit salad. Let’s use the The Seasoned Farfelle Pasta with Mussels and Mint recipe. This recipe exudes extremely strong flavours and can all be bought on a budget! Budget can also mean buying food at a slight expense but the quality can last you a lifetime (Not really but you know what I mean!). Although, you may feel spending money on a load of ingredients is breaking your bank but just a word of advice, spending money on ingredients to make a meal may also give you a bigger portion than what is being provided for you in the supermarkets such as the ready meals which are not filling enough and can eventually become expensive. So spending money on the right food is what should be your concern. Rather than trying to cut corners, these foods also can be just as quick, easy, high in protein and some of the best food you will make during your busy work schedule! By Charles Bognanni
