Live Below The Line Challenge: Day 2

Not feeling as hungry as I thought I would now, but I’ll take that as a sign it is going to get much worse as the week goes on. I now appreciate that you can eat on £1/day if needs really be, which makes me wonder how some people struggle putting food on the table. On the other hand, it’s easy to see how fast food is an incredibly easy option to get something that resembles food, for very little cost – a McDonalds 89p hamburger comes to mind, but I think we all know how unfulfilled that leaves you feeling…

End of day update: Played football for an hour. Bit of a headache. Absolutely inhaled my tea though, and savoured every single mouthful. It’s pretty shocking when you realise how much food goes into the bin when eating because you’re bored, but there wasn’t a grain of rice left in that pot at dinner time.
