在家做飯的省錢妙招

Are you planning to eat out tonight or are you going to stay in to save the pennies? A meal out at a good restaurant or even a pizza parlour can set you back a small fortune, so cooking for yourself makes financial sense. But with the rise in food prices, it's important to be a savvy shopper to keep your food bill in check.

你今晚打算出去吃還是留在家里省點錢?去一家不錯的餐廳甚至是披薩店吃飯可能會花掉一大筆錢,所以自己做飯是合算的。但是隨著食品價格的上漲,明智購物是很重要的,要控制食品支出。

These days our supermarket shelves are packed with a tempting array of food items: from the daily staples, like bread and milk, to the exotic, like mangoes and saffron. There's also the option of buying ready meals - convenient food that comes at a price. However, if you're feeling the pinch, there are things you can do to make the money you spend on food go further.

如今,超市貨架上擺滿了各種誘人的食品:從面包和牛奶等日常主食,到芒果和藏紅花等珍奇食品。此外,也有即食食品可供選擇——價格不菲的方便快餐。然而,如果你感到手頭拮據,可以做很多事情開源,這樣就能買到想吃的東西了。

According to the BBC Food website, it's all about changing your habits. It claims that cooking filling and tasty meals on a budget is easy. It suggests a number of 'tricks' such as using cheaper cuts of meat, "bulk out small amounts of meat with less expensive proteins" and "transform small amounts of leftovers into a filling meal".

據BBC美食網站報道,這只是需要改變習慣的問題。該網站聲稱,在預算范圍內做一頓烹飪美味并不難。它提出了一些“竅門”,比如使用更便宜的切肉,“用更便宜的蛋白質讓少量的肉看起來飽滿”,以及“把少量的剩菜變成一頓能填飽肚子的飯”。

A favourite pastime of mine to help when money is tight is to stock up on items that are on special offer - such as BOGOF deals (Buy one, get one free). However, this is more of a problem when it comes to perishable items like fresh fruit and vegetables. In the UK, about 39% of household food waste is fruit and veg. So it's a good idea not to stock up on too much of these things. Store them carefully and make the most of them in all your recipes.

當手頭緊的時候,我最喜歡做的一件事就是購買特價商品——比如BOGOF特價商品(買一送一)。然而,當涉及到像新鮮水果和蔬菜這樣的易腐食品時,就不能用這個方法了。在英國,水果和蔬菜占了家庭食物垃圾的約39%。所以最好不要買太多這樣的東西。要小心地儲存并在烹飪時充分利用。

Food waste is a big problem generally so shopping carefully can also reduce the amount we throw away. And in Edinburgh in Scotland, it's possible to reduce waste and not break the bank by visiting a recycled food shop, which has been set up to prevent surplus food from shops ending up in the bin. The Food Sharing Hub allows people to pay as much as they want for the rescued food, which is past its 'best before date'.

食物浪費是一個大問題,所以按需購物也可以減少浪費。在蘇格蘭的愛丁堡,可以把購買的多余食材送到一家食品回收商店,這樣既可以減少浪費又能節約成本。這家店的設立就是為了防止多余的食材被浪費。這個食物分享中心里的食材都已經經過了“最佳食用日期”,所以價格隨顧客自己確定。

Of course, the biggest thing you can do to help your cash flow is to cut back on takeaway coffees and lunches. Making your own is usually healthier for you and your finances!

當然,你能做的最能省錢的事情是少叫外賣咖啡和午餐。自己烹飪不僅對健康有利,更能節省開支哦!
