Week 6 Progress

July 21, 2013 10:57 am by Pooja

This week, we had a lot leftover from our gloriously bountiful CSA share, so we only spent $72 on food! We spent $50 (69%) at the markets and $22 (31%) at the grocery store. That’s not our best percentage break down, but when we consider that we consumed TONS of yellow squash, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, garlic, green onion, carrots, and cabbage that were all left over from last week’s CSA share (thus not factoring into this week’s spending total), I think we did pretty well at eating local this week!

This week’s big success was the Spicy tomato, cabbage, and pinto bean stew. I took one of my old, over-processed recipes and adapted it to use local and whole food ingredients.

We ate a huge variety of veggies, and tons of them, and cut down on our fatty dairy this week, so I’d say we did some pretty healthy eating. You know, to balance all the drinking we (I) did this week. (Hey – we were celebrating!)

We did not tackle the meat goal this week, to give our tummies a break after a few weeks of travel. We focused on vegetables and feel back to normal, finally!

I think we’re finally getting the hang of this 🙂
