the fresh stuff is hard, and sometimes i do find myself having to go for canned despite the salt content. like for tomatoes, i just don't eat them enough to buy a pack of four. so when i do need them, i just use the canned. or just get one or two fresh. I make more trips to the store for fresh, but I think i waste less food.

broccoli i always get frozen. cauliflower can be either or for me since they take on the flavor of whatever you put on. onions, chop your own. carrots last a good while fresh. cucumbers dont last but they are cheap.

i try to make list each week so im not just buying whatever, but my taste buds take over



for 10-12 dollars/week, i would make the bulk of meals proteins and canned veggies for those that aren't cheap/easily perishable. brown rice or beans to fill you

my two cents

i think the easiest way to keep it simple while staying within your budget is to either keep a journal or make a list of the foods you ate last week for example, think of the foods that you know aren't good for you and come of with a healthier alternative. 

ex. if you normally have two scrambled eggs, toast with jelly, sausage and cranberry juice for breakfast, try to cut the two eggs down to one, consider boiling it instead of frying, either eliminate the toast all together or make sure it is whole wheat whole grain--without the jelly, bake your sausage instead of frying it and drink club soda with a splash of cran to cut out all that sugar. 

basically it's about staying in your comfort zone and making small changes to what you normally eat (at least in the beginning until you're ready to stop eating bread sausage all together) and that takes away the pressure of "dieting". plus it keeps you from breaking the bank. 

it's hard. girl, i know. but baby steps can make a world of difference. 

I'm not really concerned with cutting food groups out per se just getting more bang for my buck you know? I know what I NEED to eat i just have to find ways to do so with what I have.

All sounds good! That tomato thing is a great idea I never eat a whole tomato!
