Eating right

Saturday, January 26, 2013

sometimes it's hard to get the right food to eat. Especially when this economy is so tight. We hope to move but right now we live in a town on a mountain where our food prices are doubled, and a lot of things are impossible to get. When we get moved we should be able to get the food I need to help my diet and for half the price. There are two of us and right now it cost us about $500.00 a month to eat.

    I know what you mean about the food budget. Ours is big. I wish you the best on cutting yours, especially when you move.

    I understand what you say. I live in a mountainous area where food cost are high. You can make ANY food fit into your HEALTHY eating plan. You can make the occasional trip to the bigger stores and buy frozen fruits and veggies. You can buy in bulk when you go to the larger areas once a month or so. My son and I shop about an hour to 90 minutes away once a month. We get frozen foods (always have a cooler in the car to keep food cold on trip home), We get some fish, lots of veggies, and lots of fruits. Canned fruits and veggies are not ideal but can also add to your meals. I KNOW it is hard but you can make it happen if you PLAN in advance and shop carefully,

When do you expect to move? Good luck making the best of what you have to choose from until then.

    A food budget like yours would absolutely kill my ability to make it without MAJOR changes. We have some, but no many, discretionary categories to attack.

We live in the PHX area and we eat well on less than $300/month for the two of us.
