Project Food Budget: Week 3, Needs Improvement

I am being very lazy. I ate more convenient, not-so-nutritious foods this week. At least I did eat mostly what was in the house, but I bought unnecessary foods when I went shopping.

My meals included: Amy's Asian Noodle Stir-Fry; more Shells and Chreese with Imagine Creamy Tomato soup; whole grain pasta with marinara sauce and nutritional yeast; pasta with leftover peanut sauce; a premade avacado "chicken" (tofu) wrap; and these brownies.

Budget Goal: $20
Actual: $17
Shopping: Amy's Asian Noodle Stir-Fry; Amy's Soy Baked Ziti Bowl; Shells and Chreese; avacado "chicken" wrap

Again I have stayed under my budget but I'm getting very little for my money. It's just so hard being back in school and worrying about things, to avoid the temptation of convenience. But I have no excuse. I may not need many things now that my pantry is full, but as these foods run out I will be upset with myself that I have no money.

I'm not making specific goals for next week because that hasn't been helping me. I'm just going to say that I want to eat healthier, cook more, and try to spend money only on whole foods.

How is it going with my fellow Project: Food Budget participants?

  1. i think the goal of eating healthier is a good one! and better than saying "i won't eat ___".

    hope you are happy with this week!
