How to Lower Your Grocery Bill

How much money do you spend on groceries each week? ๐Ÿ 

It wasn't that long ago that our average cost for groceries per week, as a family of TWO were upwards of $250/week.   Never a plan, never a list, and we were always stopping to pick up "one" thing on our way home from work.

That wasnโ€™t accounting for ๐Ÿป happy hour on the reg; $75 on average for drinks and apps/2x week OR ๐Ÿดdinners out. Chris and I used to go out, often times on a whim, 2-3x/week for dinner. For both of us, $80 each meal with a few drinks. 

If you haven't been adding up with me, that's $640 to feed our family of 2 each WEEK.

...And because we ended up eating out on a whim half the time, I would throw tons of fresh produce away at the end of each week.  

Our average weekly spend is now around $125 to feed our family of FOUR (well, one doesn't eat food yet, so technically three, lol!) Pretty massive shift, right?!

Well, most plant centered foods, like fresh fruits and veggies, beans and lentils, nuts, seeds and gluten free grains... they're generally kinder to the wallet than processed and convenience foods.

And those plant based proteins we incorporate? At around 50 cents/serving, they save you bookoo bucks!

Unbelievable, right?!

Just a small few things shifted:
... head into each week with a solid PLAN instead of winging it! less prepared convenience foods! 

โ€ฆeat more PLANTS!
...cook more, using SHARED ingredients
...and for the first time ever, not throw a bunch of food away at the end of each week!

=A lower grocery bill ๐Ÿ˜ This is exciting stuff! ๐Ÿคฉ

What would you do with that extra money each week?!

P.S. ~ Here's what our members are cooking up this week! Once all stocked up on most commonly used spices and pantry staples, it isnโ€™t uncommon to get away with spending less than $100/week on everything you'll need to feed your family for one week!

When I shared last week's free meal plan pics, I received soooo many messages along the lines of "I wish I could make my food look that good! Do you deliver?" ๐Ÿš—

Give them choices that involve only healthy choices. They'll think they're winning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don't force them to eat anything. Encourage them to taste and celebrate their willingness to try! ๐ŸŽŠ

Eat healthy food. Yup, you! They learn by what they see, not by what we teach. Be a good role model now, while they still think we're cool. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Choose your battles. They'll eat nothing but bananas for 48 hours? They'll survive. Think back to what you lived on back in college. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿป

So, why more plants? ๐ŸŒฑ

Aghhhhh where do I begin?!

It is not uncommon for people to experience any combination of the following by incorporating more plant based foods into their diet:

Physically >> Lost weight/inches, lowered blood pressure, lowered blood sugar, lowered cholesterol, balanced hormones, healthier hair & nails, healthier skin, lessened joint pain, regulated bowels ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Mentally>> Eliminated brain fog, increased energy, clearer thinking, overall sense of happiness, regained sense of control, reduced anxiety/depression ๐Ÿง 

Another huge perk? You'll likely find you are saving money by eating more meals at home, having a plan, utlizing pantry staples, incorporating more plant-based proteins, and have an overall lower grocery bill! ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Actual reflections from people eating from the plans:

โ€œThe food tastes great. Best of all I have not been constipated since incorporating your food!! Finally!!!!โ€

"My energy is increased, and my skin is clearing up!"

"The recipes share ingredients so there is no waste!"
