Weekly Shopping Trip
Kroger trip: $78 for food,including organic chicken and a few extra items to make things for lunches, as I am back to work this week. I plan on making these Zucchini Apple Bran Muffins for quick breakfasts. I also used some of my drug store budget to buy some calcium plus D3,as my food journal on Sparkpeople.com tells me I am not getting enough calcium by far.
I also made a trip to the health food store for my son's soy yogurt (I'd rather pay $4 for a carton that lasts 8 days for him instead of almost $10 for individual containers.) Total was $12. I bought organic local eggs and non-creepy bacon that, combined with the organic chicken, really brought my total up this week. It just means we'll eat from the pantry more next week to keep me overall at $70 a week for the month. I knew there was a reason we ate vegetarian most days! Organic meats are expensive.
