FOOD ~ March 2015

  1. I’ve been debating for a month or so now whether we’ll get a juicer. Mr. FI isn’t really into it like I am currently, so I think we’ll have to wait on getting one. Ever since my juice cleanse that I posted about back in March, I’ve been trying to drink some juice with greens at least a couple times a week but, like you said, while juicing makes you feel better it is rather expensive, too. So I’m hoping spreading the juices out helps to keep our costs down. My cleanse put us over our budget last month as well, and even though we are still under budget for the quarter I didn’t want to push it too much this month! I’m excited to see how you adjust your spending on this so I can keep juicing more regularly and maybe convince Mr. FI to get on board in the future!

    1. Yup, the cost of juicing is definitely the major downside. What’s best is if you can actually replace one of your meals with a juice to help defray some of the cost, but really, juicing is probably just one of those healthy lifestyle choices where the additional costs involved just need to be prioritized into your day.

      Congrats on going through a juice cleanse. Around day 3 or 4 it certainly gets tough, but afterwards you sure do feel a lot better.

  2. If I spent $217 on fruits and veggies and none of it went to waste, I would consider that a huge win. We’ve definitely made the seasonal shift to more meat and veggies and fewer processed foods and carbs, but it feels so good to be eating something besides sweet potatoes with dinner.

    More power to you on the juicing- If you can stomach it, that’s about the best thing in the world for you.

  3. Love love LOVE that you’re blowing your grocery budget because of healthy fruits and vegetables! We want to pull our hair out when we see so many frugal bloggers show what they’re spending their grocery budget on, and in their efforts to save money, they buy such unhealthy junk. Thank you for setting a good example! Look forward to following along with you.
