Brown rice shrimp california roll (dinner)
Brown rice tuna avocado roll (dinner)
Baby mixed kale
4 organic avocados
Jason's Vitamin E face creme
Skirt steak (Just local, not grass fed. That was more $$)
365 organic milk
Zico coconut water
4 PB pretzel luna bars
That's it! I think it's the most I've ever spent for the amount of food I got. Granted, the face lotion was $12. But still! This really reiterates the fact that we need to set a budget for food and have a plan before we walk into the store. My problems are these:
1. I shop at Trader Joe's, Wegman's, Whole Foods, Target and Shop Rite. This kind of blurs how much money you spend per week. But, I really need to start settling for other brands or foods and stop going to 5 stores a week! Not to mention the time I'd be saving!
2. I try to buy a lot of organic and foods with better ingredients. Sometimes this doesn't happen for cheap, actually most of the time. I know I could just go somewhere like Produce Junction and get a bulk of produce for super cheap, but last time I checked, that stuff is not organic. And right now, with the whole trying to get pregnant thing, it's very important to me the quality of the food I put into my body.
So, I guess this means I need to plan, plan, plan and search for deals. Also, I'm thinking I might need to simplify my meals and keep the ingredients to a minimum. Any ideas?
