We have had a rough few weeks with food in our house. My son has never been the type of kid to eat us out of house and home but two weeks ago after a trip to the ER we had a long discussion on the importance of food and what happens to our bodies when we don’t eat enough! Laziness was the foremost issue in this particular instance but I myself have struggled with a poor relationship with food most of my life. For over two decades I feared food, especially eating in public, because of the effect it had on my body. Turns out I am lactose intolerant. Sure wish I had known that 20 years ago!
It took about a week to get my son’s gut back into shape so meals were not very normal for that time period. We have had some good meals since, so here are a few things we have eaten since my last update.
I make my own teriyaki sauce for stir-frys and marinades. Here’s the recipe!
Total spent for groceries the last three weeks – $288.89 for a grand total of $504.05 for the month of June. My goal was to spend $500 for the 5 paycheck month so just $4.05 over budget. Not bad!
How did you all do with your food budget this month? – MM
