Week 3 at May 9 - 16 prices

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

I don’t have this down pat yet. This week I had to go back and add a bunch more calories, like I did the first month. I think the reason I didn’t have to add calories last month was that I ate so much pork (98 cents a pound). Unfortunately, it’s not on sale this month. But I did get the average cost of what I ate (not what I bought, but what I ate) back down to $3.50 a day. That’s about halfway between Week 1 and Week 2. I may be able to eke out the month on budget after all!

The total cost of the food eaten (not purchased, but eaten) was $23.89, or $3.41 per day. For this, I averaged 1767 calories per day, 133 grams of fat, 102 grams of protein, 42 grams of total carbs, 13 grams of fiber, and 29 net carbs per day. So my carbs are lower than I had planned for this month.
