Quid-a-day Reg nosh posse chap fears for his waistline
Toby counts calories, comes up short, despite lentils-in-brine delicacy
El Reg Quid-a-Day Nosh Posse member Toby Sibley has been in touch to say he only got to spend his £5 food allowance for the Live Below the Line challenge last night, and is beginning to worry about his waistline.
Here's his last-minute stash...
- 25g sugar
- 4 eggs
- 500g rice
- 5 carrots
- 3 onions
- 4 apples
- 250g oats
- 1 tin beans
- 1 tin of chick peas
- 1 weird lentil-in-brine concoction (which was on special offer)
Toby's getting hitched on 3 May, and said his soon-to-be missus "looked through my purchases and reckons I've shopped badly and could have gotten a better deal on the chick peas, lentils, carrots, apples and eggs – so pretty much all of the shopping purchases!"
He added: "The above will result in a bit of a calorie shortage over five days. I'll crunch the numbers on the calories tonight to get a more accurate picture."
Well, apart from the lentils in brine, it looks plausible enough. Expect drama as Toby takes in his belt a couple of notches over the next few days.
