So judging off of my food from Sunday, you may think that I don't care about Health. Monday isn't much better, but a little bit. My diet (diet meaning food that I eat, not the buzzword of diet), has slowly been changing, and it's currently a work in progress.
I'm tracking $'s spent on food, $'s/meal, $'s day, for a few reasons.
- To become aware of my spending to stick closer to the standard by the USDA.
- I've been reading about recipes about slow cookers, and some of those sites/blogs have it broken down into $'s meal/portion.
- A close friend of mine is watching his spending on food, and it made me feel bad about how much money I was spending on food.
It took some time to enter in my receipt from the grocery store, but it'll pay off if I'm able to come up with a system to consistently track this information. If I come up with a good system, I'll post about it.
So in the past 2 days, the food that I've eaten has cost me $15.44. This leaves about $50 for the rest of the week to stay within the standard of $65 I set for myself (but haven't been monitoring until now).
