Tip of the Week: Meal plan! By planning your menu ahead of time, you only buy the food that you need. This saves money, reduces waste, cuts down on the number of trips you make to the grocery store each week, which means less impulse buys!
Chickpea Plov + Green Salad
(Loaded) Vegetable Pizza
Maple Baked Lentils + Roasted Root Vegetables
Corn and Quinoa Fritters + Raw Veggies and Dip
Black Bean Taco Salad
Our breakfast menu is consistently consistent: oatmeal and smoothie. Sunday through Thursday I make enough at dinner to have left overs for lunch the next day.
Ouch! This week didn’t go as planned, considering we are budgeting $200/month. To tell you the truth I forgot I was participating in Project Food Budget until after I sent DH to Costco for the ‘usual’. In the future, I plan to go to Costco once every 2 weeks and to cut out a few convenience purchases. This should make a difference in our spending next week.
