It's true the idea isn't new, but it's the first time (certainly that I know of) that it'll be documented daily. I enjoy blogging, I enjoy cooking, and I enjoy saving money, so it's a natural progression.
I own a crock pot, which will be being used heavily, fear not !
Regarding weight loss, at 10 stone before starting (5ft 10), I hopefully won't lose much if any. My goals are to eat healthily and ideally, maintain my weight where it's at right now. With 10 stone lost last year, I've had enough of losing weight
Do something amazing. GIVE BLOOD.
I am sure plenty will be as interested in how you lost 10 st as how you live on £1 a day
Turkey drumsticks are another cheap meat source, and go well in a slow cooker. If you have freezer space you might try buying half a pig/ cow straight from the farmer and share with other family members. Loads more ideas on the 'Old Style' board and support on the 'Live on £4k for a year' thread on the DFW board.
Edited to add: seen that you have linked to your blog from your profile. If you must take a multivitamin, make it a multivitamin and multimineral combined. Vitamin deficiencies are rare, low grade mineral deficiencies much more common. If you eat your five portions of fruit and veg a day - tomato puree and baked beans count! - have wholegrains rather than white carbs and dairy products daily you will be fine (I have studied nutrition modules as part of my degree BTW). More likely you won't get sufficient omega 3s - oily fish, Columbus eggs or Leskol cheese are good sources.
Good luck! Sounds interesting; I'll be following your blog for updates and ideas!
Good luck to yourself !!
