The Best Budget Food Blog Award- Here Come The Winners!
It has been 6 days since we launched our competition on the best budget food blogger. If you don’t remember our 15 nominees, you can see who they were here. However, we already have our winner!
Why were these blogs nominated?
Here is the criteria that has determined the nominees for Surveybee’s Best Budget Food blog award.
Our aim was to provide you with great resources of quality food, that wouldn’t excess your budget. All these blogs offer wonderful recipes, created with inexpensive ingredients that can easily be found in all of our kitchens. As we have tried some ourselves, we can guarantee that the quality of our bloggers’ food is definitely worthy of you following them.
We have all heard the standard cheap recipe scenarios- mac and cheese, bolognese pasta, ramen soup. Well, our bloggers have something way more to offer to you- quality, nutritional food that looks out for your health and well-being. Their recipes combine various simple ingredients to create a fulfilling and exceptionally delicious meal for a cheap price. Their blogs don’t compromise with your health, even if it will cost you less than £5 to prepare dinner for the whole family.
We chose those websites also because they are a true inspiration to every home cook, stay-at-home mom or desperate student out there. Most of them have started a blog in their college years and have gotten as far as writing cookbooks. These people will inspire you to experiment in your kitchen and not get discouraged by a limited budget.
After 6 days of voting and collecting more than 220 votes for our blogs, here are the 5 which won the reader’s love!
