I am on Day 12 of my whole 30 and loving it, but there is one problem....I am going broke to pay for it! I am working part time and don't make much money. I think I am spending about $100 on food per week. I buy almost all of my meats and eggs at costco to save money. I always get organic, which price-wise is not much more than conventional. I also go for the cheaper one- whole chickens, ground beef, ground turkey. Most weeks I stop at the farmers market to stock up on veggies. I pay close attention to the prices and if I can get an organic fruit or vegetable at the grocery store cheaper, I will get it at Trader ;oe's instead. I have found that for the most part, farmers market has the best prices. For anything I can't find at costco or farmers market, I go to trader joes (spices, olive oil, frozen veggies, chicken sausage.) I am probably not even eating enough vegetables, but I can barely afford the foods I am eating now. I should also add that I love in California, so it might be more expensive here than other parts of the country. How much do you spend on groceries? Any tips on saving some money?
I'm on Day 17 of my first Whole30 and the only one in my home doing it. I'm wondering about affordability for life after Whole30 (and during). Wondering what some of your monthly food budgets and expenses look like. We were eating what I thought was pretty well when I began this, but now I know better and my husband is basically finishing off what's left of the "bad" foods. We were spending about $500/month for myself, my husband, and our (almost) 10 month old who is mostly exclusively breast fed, so he doesn't count very much yet still. I just finished our budget this month from spending and we spent OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS on food this month! Please give me some ideas of what it costs to live a Paleo lifestyle. Wondering what next month will be like, cannot BELIEVE how much I spent this month on FOOD. If there's a better section of the forum I should post this to, please let me know! I wasn't sure where to post. Thanks in advanced!
