Eating healthy for low cost
Stacie at Building Nutrition posted an excellent article about how you CAN eat healthy food for low cost, where she highlights four meal-plans prescribed by the USDA and how much you should expect to pay for groceries each month based on a singles, 2 adult or 2 adult/2 children families.
These plans assume you’re making fresh food at home (ie cooking your own pasta, making your own sauces, etc.) and not dining out or getting fast food. Obviously we’re not budgeting enough for groceries ($200 per month), but I think it’s because we budget $200 per month for dining out for dinner and $100 for lunch each month.
