So far, so good. Everything is organic or at least has ingredients we can find in nature. It was so hard to find Sour Cream that didn't have a list of 5+ ingredients! We finally found one that was milk and cream. 🙂
From Meijer we got the following for $65.35:
cream ($1.85), 2 cans of organic pasta sauce ($2.16 each), organic celery ($2.69), Hebrew National Franks ($3.98), organic apples ($3.99), organic potatoes ($3.99), organic salted butter ($4.99), 2 pounds of natural boneless skinless chicken breast ($5.00), 5lb bag of organic whole wheat flour ($5.99), 10 pound (if I remember correctly) natural ham on the bone ($13.47), organic canned tomatoes ($1.79), organic coconut milk ($2.49), Parmesan cheese ($2.99 – we couldn't find an organic or natural brand but we got the one with ingredients that we can pronounce and know are in nature), 2 bags of sweet sorghum flour ($2.04).
Next I went to our local ethnic store for a few items to total $16.67:
Peanuts ($1.11-use for peanut butter), dried kidney beans ($3.98), dried pinto beans ($1.98), masa for tortillas ($3.99), dried black beans ($1.34), 2 onions ($0.88), 6.72 pounds of bananas ($1.63).
Last we got our order from Greenbean delivery which was $99.05 with the following:
4 pounds grass-fed ground beef ($21.40), 1/2 gallon organic chocolate milk ($4.95), 2 gallons of grass-fed whole milk ($17.00), 2 dozen pasture-raised eggs ($7.70), 2 6oz. bags of organic mild cheddar cheese ($8.50), 2 6oz. bags of organic mozzarella cheese ($8.50), 4 packages of organic taco seasoning ($6.00), organic produce basket that included 3lbs. russet potatoes, green beans, apples, tangelos, zucchini, strawberries, tomatoes, and lettuce.
That makes the total $181.07. I didn't factor in what seasonings I already own and a whole chicken that was in our freezer I'll be cooking which would have been around $6.00. So, I still have enough to get more eggs and milk if needed later next week even if you count those. I'm also going to be keeping $5 aside to buy paper items. I'm thinking this is very doable! Tomorrow I'll post all of the meals I plan to make with these items. Right now it's bed time. Good night all and may God bless you abundantly!
