Tonight, we will make fish packets and get back to the plan.
There is a lot of hype out there about food. You could go crazy either trying to afford food from Mars or go crazy trying to make sense of a climate that has two sides to every food . My take is to eat in moderation, and eat a wide variety of foods. I don't believe that it is appropriate to leave a whole food group out of your diet unless your doctor says that it is not good for you because of a disease. I wholly agree that we eat too much fat, sugar and salt in this country. There was a good program on pbs about food. Basically, they said the same thing. The French people eat everything pretty much, they eat in moderation and usually don't eat on the fly according to the program.
We eat on 70 percent of the snap budget at four dollar a day per person. We are not on snap. I have built and maintained a stock on that amount of money. I spend 75.00 a week on food and have lot of years now. We eat a variety of protein, we eat inexpensive cuts of protein,but I buy the best quality I can of those proteins. We always have fresh fruits and veggies. I wash fruits and veggies or peel them if it is appropriate to do so. I don't buy junk food. Of a food has no food value, I don't buy it, sans herbal teas.
Just a note, there is absolutely no reason to buy organic bananas unless you are trying to impress your neighbour.
Nutrition wise, there is no reason to buy organic milk either. In fact, organic milk does not have some of the nutrients that regular milk has. Organic milk is processed longer and kills some nutrients.
