The 21 dollar challenge…
A new and lovely friend of ours, Vegan Hope has given her readers a challenge. I love challenges so I was happy to participate in this one. I also love budgeting my grocery list and being very frugal. She is challenging her readers to grocery shop on $21 a week per family member. That is the budget you would be given if on food stamps. Here is the link, check it out: http://veganhope.com/2010/08/02/21-dollar-week-challenge/ .
We went grocery shopping this evening for said challenge. We spent $67. This also includes the cost of our CSA share. We bought ingredients to make the following meals this week:
Spicy Coconut Tofu w/roasted broccoli & rice
-Roasted stuffed acorn squash
-Homemade marinara with Polenta
-Tofu scramble with tortillas
-Roasted red pepper pesto with pasta
-Banana Oat Muffins
-Strawberry Streusel Muffins
-Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Check out Vegan Hope and the 21 DOllar a Week Challenge. Her blog is amazing and her journey into the vegan lifestyle is a wonderful story.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
