Save Money:  Good Diet


The launch of a brand new series of ‘Save Money’ as we turn our attention now to eating well in Save Money: Good Diet.  In every household right across Britain, food and drink is one of our biggest weekly outgoings. In Save Money Good Diet, Sian Williams with the help of Chef Phil Vickery investigate how we can spend less and get super tasty, healthy food.


This week we kick off a countdown of the UK’s top 10 favourite family dishes, and we challenge Chef Phil Vickery to wow us with his own super healthy, low cost and of course mouth-watering versions of them all. Which delicious dishes will claim number 10 and number 9 in our countdown this week and what will our Save Money family make of Phil’s dish when they give his recipes a whirl in their own home kitchen?


Sian investigates what’s money well spent in our shopping baskets – this week Sian and Nutrition Therapist Ian Marber tackle ready meals and unpack whether fresh or frozen is best on value for money, taste and nutrition.


And we’ll be asking, is it possible to get luxury products at affordable prices? This time it’s one of the UK’s favourite tipples – Gin. Our group of trusty road testers will take part in a blind taste test, of two award winning Gins, one significantly cheaper than the other. Which will get their taste buds tingling?
