Needed a snack. $20 later ...

Recommended Posts

So, I was running errands in the city yesterday and despite having what I thought was a substantial lunch (leftover ribeye, roasted cauliflower, baked potato w/ olive oil) I found myself getting really hungry. I didn't think my errands were going to take me so long and I knew I wasn't going to make it home before major hunger pangs set in, so I found a local Whole Foods to grab a compliant snack:

- compliant prosciutto

- guacamole

- baby carrots

- kombucha (for funsies)


This was probably the most expensive "snack" I have ever had, since it came out to well over $20! I normally don't even spend that much on lunch. Of course, I didn't eat all of it so it was really two snacks' worth, and I ended up polishing it all off for dinner later on. But it's just crazy how before I would have probably stopped in at a Starbucks for a ginormous sugary latte instead.


What's been the biggest surprise in planning/budgeting meals for you?
