Today, instead of chronicling my eats the way I’ve been doing, I decided to show you what an average, $70 grocery trip looks like. In my article ‘15 ways to save on groceries‘, I discuss our typical eats and what we purchase, but sometimes a picture is worth more than words.
2 pineapples (on sale), 5 lemons, 1 lime, 3 apples, a big bag of oranges (about 10), 7 avocados, a whackload of bananas (about 15)
3 tomatoes, 3 sweet potatoes, 3 english cucumbers (sale!), 3 field cucumbers (another sale!), 2 bunches of broccoli, 6 yellow/orange bell peppers, 1 green bell pepper, 1 head romaine, 3 bunches kale, 1 bunch spinach, grape tomatoes, snow peas, some white button mushrooms (about 6)
green mammoth olives, pumpkin seeds, cashews, black beans, a can of crushed tomatoes, extra firm tofu and soy milk.
This should get us through most of the week, though there will be another trip in there somewhere for a few odds and ends, usually for soy milk, avocados or bananas.
Until next time! 🙂
