Meal Plan: August 24-August 30

Every week we make a meal plan for the week ahead. The plan accounts for 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches (plus fruit), 4 snacks, and 5 dinners for the two of us. Lunch ideas are typically a double batch of whatever the recipe calls for. I make the lunches and do other various prep work on Sunday. Nearly all items are purchased from either our local farmers market or Whole Foods. We are currently living in New York City, so things are more expensive than average.

This is what's leftover from prepping a week's worth of lunches/fruit for dessert. Comforting to know that we're obviously eating our fruits and veggies.

August 24- August 30

We decided to splurge a little and treat ourselves to steak for dinner one night this week. Also, we can’t not buy blueberries and raspberries to snack on as long as they’re still available at the farmers market. It would just be wrong.

Total cost: $143

Average cost per meal per person, with snacks tucked into the mix: $5.11
