But my point is it CAN be realistic. People eat 4 times an actual serving anyway. If you buy a specific gluten free product you can stretch that one item for 4 meals.....or rice as suggested by anng.atlanta. Personally I prefer buying organic and people say "I would but can't afford it"! I only spend $60 a week on groceries and I buy 90% organic. 1 pound of ground beef can be stretched to two meals, making it affordable for the splurge on the organic meat.
There are ways to make it work, you have to be creative! You want gluten free bread and can't find it at the corner store....well buy a bread machine, even a used one, and MAKE the bread. It's cheaper to buy the ingredients and make it yourself anyway!
