This post is a little bit different. I don’t usually post about Poundland but I was surprised how many healthy bargains you can get at this store. This post is inspired by From Aldi to Harrods, which is a really great money-saving blog, and I suggest you check this out and if you are looking for ways to save money. Aldi to Harrods has a post about what’s new in Poundland each month and I really enjoy reading it. but I couldn’t find anything relevant to healthy eating. This post inspired me to make my own healthy food haul; full of the best healthy options from Poundland!
The first thing is that it is definitely one of the best places to get the healthy basics: nuts, seeds and dried fruits. Look at all the options available! This makes it a real bargain for things like cashew nuts which can be really expensive elsewhere. These cost me at least £3 a packet if I buy them at whole foods, So I’d really recommend stocking up on these when you can!
The next items on my list are cookware items. Poundland has some really cute pastels inspired cookware which is great. My favourite item is the mini-sieve which I already blogged about my February favourites post. These are really great for making nut milks and cold-pressed juicers. They are great at getting rid of excess fibre, which I know many people with IBD and IBS really struggled with. Another one of my favourite items are the ceramic mini dishes. These are really great if you’re cooking for one which, if you’ve got intolerance or allergies, is often the case. I’ve used these to make my gluten/dairy free fish pie or my apple crumble;a really great way for cooking for one as there is no waste.
The next thing I would suggest checking out is the food aisle.
There were Nairns oat cakes ( these were wheat free rather than gluten free so it depends how sensitive you are) , Kelko dark chocolate rice cakes (which usually cost me £2!) and lots of Twinings herbal teas.
So that’s my roundup of all the healthy food items and cookware items in poundland. Let me know if you’ve managed to pick any of these up or if you’ve got any other recommendations of the best places to get healthy food on the cheap!
