5 Tips for Eating Real Food on a Budget

Last week I told you all about our grocery budget plan, and how we shop! The goal is to spend less than $300 on healthy groceries for the 2 of us, and save any money left over for big meat purchases! We spent less than $43 on groceries last week, which seems crazy low for 2 people trying to eat healthy! Well I am happy to tell you that somehow, this week was EVEN CHEAPER!? Read more to learn how we did it!

5 Tips for Eating Real Food on a Budget

 

How much is a normal amount of money to spend on groceries?? Last year, Jared and I spent $5077! That’s over $420/month for 2 people. I basically had the perspective that getting groceries was cheaper than eating out, so I didn’t pay any attention to how much we were spending, I just swiped the credit card and didn’t give it a second thought. Patients always tell me that it's too expensive to eat healthy, so I'm going to try to do better in this regard!

This Year We are doing things a little bit Differently...

What to do when a problem arises

Today I want to talk a bit about damage control. Jared and I had our first FAIL last night. Well, I wouldn’t call it a fail exactly (don’t worry, we still found healthy, real food to eat) maybe more of a snafu.

 

Here’s what happened...

Shopping for Healthy Eating - Plus Day 2 updates

Day 2 Updates

So far, the challenge is going quite well!  I am 2 for 2 on making it to the gym (And I did a hand stand against the wall by myself for the first time ever!!)  I was only going to do a weight update weekly, but Jared has already lost 10 pounds! Now I know this seems insane, and I’m sure that this was 99% water weight, but he’s excited. Anything that we can do to keep Jared excited about the challenge is a good thing!

Today, I’m going to talk about what we did to prepare for the challenge in terms of shopping. I would say that for most people (besides the whole skipping the cookie when it’s offered to you part), the hardest thing about healthy eating is having food on hand and having a plan.
