you're telling me you can live on $7 per day spending on food, comfortably
If i buy a few bags of spinach and salad and assorted vegetables, that lasts me a few days. I eat smaller portions these days and eat less frequently. Remember, during the day, I only eat one time, then I eat again at night. Then a few snacks here and there. And I only drink water. And I don't waste any food.
When you don't needless buy food and don't waste food, you'd be surprised how much money you can save. Everything I buy I consume. We buy too much, eat too often, and eat too much.
Research shows: "The cost of feeding a family of four a healthy diet can run $146 to $289 a week, according to the latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture." So, lets pretend 4 people cost 200. How much should one person cost?
I just found this from the USDA
Weekly cost for 1 person age 19-50:
moderate cost: 70
So, let me bump that up. I probably spend between 50-70 a week, lets say 60. If I spent $86 dollars per week on food, Id be throwing a lot out.
