  • I buy all kinds of fresh fruits and veggies, mostly organic, lean meats and fish, cheeses. Dry grains such as quinoa and couscous. I don't buy boxed, preprepared, or frozen anything. I want to know EXACTLY what is going into my family's bodies. I make EVERYTHING from scratch and only buy a few canned things like organic diced tomatoes. My toddler's snacks are fresh fruits and veggies with peanut butter. NO soda, chips, cookies, or processed meats or other miscelaneous processed junk that so many people buy. Doing this I end up spending about $80 per week in groceries.
