Welcome to the first ever post in my new Student Survival Guide! 
Eating healthy on a budget
Plan ahead. Make a list of meals you will be eating throughout the week and buy only food that you will need for those meals. That way you are only buying things you need and no impulse buys.
Go shopping later at night. It tends to be when the supermarkets put everything down in price, you can get some amazing discounts!
Or buy your food shop online. Websites such as mysupermarket allow you to enter your food shop online and tell you which supermarket is cheapest! They also have a great app!
Don’t go shopping when you’re hungry. You’re more likely to buy things you don’t need and unhealthy things.
Eat out as little as possible. Especially if there aren’t any student offers on. Check if there are any offers on in local restaurants using websites such as StudentBeans and UNiDAYS.
Prepare your own lunch, don’t buy it in between lectures. A £3 meal deal of a sandwich, bag of crisps and a fizzy drink may seem cheap at the time but it’s not at all healthy and the money slowly builds up. £3 a day, 5 days a week equates to over £750 year!
Stay away from microwave meals. They may seem cheap, but they are nowhere near as good value as buying your own ingredients and cooking something fresh. That, and they are NOT good for you.
Buy and cook in bulk. Buy meat and veg etc and make a stew that can be eaten for dinner all week. The ingredients that may seem expensive, will soon last you for a longer amount of time and will end up saving you money. 
Try frozen fruit. Frozen berries are great, and they are much cheaper than fresh berries. 
Eat a good breakfast. Oatmeal/porridge is really cheap to make if you buy a bag of oats and make it on the hob instead of instant microwave ones. That, and it releases its energy slowly so you will feel less hungry mid-morning and will be less likely to spend money on snacks.
If you must eat fast foods, choose wisely. Choose pizza with half the cheese, a regular size roast beef sandwich, baked potato, or green salad with reduced calorie dressing. Limit high fat offerings like French fries, fried chicken, or fish sandwiches and watch out for salad dressing!
Snacking doesn’t have to be expensive or unhealthy. People seem to think that healthy snacks are more expensive, but if you shop smartly then that’s not necessarily the case! You can get a bar of chocolate for 60p or you can get a bag of pre chopped carrot sticks for 50p-£1! You do the maths.
Limit your alcohol intake - If you drink alcohol, keep in mind that it supplies calories but no nutritional value. A light beer, a glass of wine, or an ounce of liquor each has about 100 calories. Also, the less you drink - the less you spend! Huzzah!
Drink lots of water - Your body needs at least eight glasses a day, and, if you exercise vigorously, you may need more. To remind yourself, carry a water bottle along to class and keep it handy during late night study sessions. And, tap water is free!
Find out if anywhere does student discount. Sometimes places don’t advertise it and you have to ask, so it’s worth asking!
Try going vegetarian. Not buying meat does often make your food shop a lot cheaper. If you don’t want to go fully vegetarian then just maybe try doing it when you do the shopping, and still eat meat if you go out for dinner etc.
Shop the outer aisles. Packaged foods are full of salt, sugar, fats and other unhealthy nonsense. Shop on the fresh aisles and save yourself money in the long run by cooking fresh! If you have to, though, try checking out the top and bottom shelves, because supermarkets tend to put their most expensive products at eye level.
