Ya know, I've been meaning to figure out the whole cost thing (but seriously, who has the time... I'm way too busy)... but I'm not so sure that it's more expensive to eat this way.
#1, I'm saving the money I KNOW I used to spend driving through the fast food chains
#2, I'm actually saving money on drugs for pain and doctors visits (I have NOT, and I'm looking for wood to knock on as I type this, been sick ONCE since I've started this diet)
#3, I'm really finding the cheapest fruits and veggies to eat... so I am trying to go the cheap route...
Like I said... I haven't really checked to see if this is cheaper... but I'm not entirely convinced that it's more expensive... I know that I've eaten out less than one handful of times since I've started this diet 9 months ago and probably used to eat out maybe once a month before.. well, seriously, that right there probably proves that this diet is cheaper lol The cost of dining out is ridiculous.
So, who knows. But, GROCERIES, now, that is ridiculous... it does seem to cost an arm and a leg these days... I don't disagree with you there!
Your smoothie sounds great!
So excited about the 17 Day Diet. It has truly taught me new ways of eating and being healthy. Although I've not followed the daily cycles since I finished Cycle 2 at the start, I do tend to choose only foods from all three cycles. I incorporate the added carbs as I can and we are living a 17 DD Inspired life! Getting us to goal!
