We have been WAY overspending on food for the last few months and I am working hard this week to plan better and reign that in. I have made a Weekly Menu, A shopping list (broken down by section), attached the recipes, AND price shopped online to get an estimated Weekly Total.
Few things to remember:
- We buy expensive meat due to the hormones and all of that and as a result eat meat maybe twice a week. This is for health and financial reasons. Many of these recipes can have meat added.
- I only priced shopped certain things organic depending on price differences and importance
- We eat a salad pretty much every night, and I did not show all the different ways to make salads or price match for that. I just use this as a way to incorporate a living veggie and fruit daily ( nuts too) etc.
- I try to keep most of it healthy with a cheat day or so
This weeks meal total was right at $89.00. The menu is below. If you like it and want the lists and recipes etc you can click here and print out the google document with all of that information compiled.
