I have been slowly changing our diets over the past year. Last year we focused on eating in more, less deep frying, batch cooking. This year we have developed a 3 phase system: Phase I (Jan - April) eat out couple times a month, start replacing meats with natural/grass feed/organic meats, buy top 12 dirty foods as organic, slowly replace foods with better alternatives.
Phase II (May - Aug) eat out one time a month, all meats bought grass feed/organic, purchase all Dirty Dozen organic. ONLY clean foods in house. Phase III (Sept - Dec) - Eating out only 2 times a quarter, continue organic meats and buying organic dirty dozen and only clean foods in house.
Eat the same breakfast all week to save time and $
It may sound boring but this one little thing has saved me a liot of time and $.
I pick a breakfast of the week, healthy and well balanced, and I eat it all week and pre track it. I try to get a lot of fiber in it, a hard point with me.
Saves shopping, planning , time and $.
This week is 2 slices of whole wheat organic toast, one with .5 TBL peanut butter, one with jam. Bread is 2 pound loaf from the organic shop, sliced. Side of pre-cut cantaloupe. Breakfast, all organic and locally produced melon, for the whole week, costs me less than 1$ a day.30
