Unfortunately, as much as I didn’t want it to, adding my mid-day snacks to our grocery list has also added about $10 to our normal grocery spending. I’m hoping that this is just an adjustment period, and that soon I’ll learn to snack more frugally.
We spent $63 at the grocery store this weekend. That includes healthy snack foods like yogurt, apples, and granola.
Here’s our weekly menu plan. Some of these meals may not sound like diet foods, but I stress the fact that for the less healthy meals, I adhere to strict portion control guidelines.
Sunday: Shrimp and chicken paella
Tuesday: Chicken fajitas and refried beans
Wednesday: Taco salad
Thursday: Whole wheat pasta with marinara
Friday: Homemade pizza
