Four Days on Food Stamps

Starting day four of the Food Stamp Challenge.   Thanks to the Youth Abilities kids from JFSA I had a nice lunch yesterday that cost $1.37 – pbj sandwich, apple and granola bars.  Noticing that “carbs” are filling my diet more than usual since they are the least expensive food group.  Also, my meals are pretty boring since I have limited things to choose from.  Yesterday, grabbed a SOBE water in the evening out of habit…drank half the bottle before I realized it wasn’t in my weekly budget to have it.  Had to forfeit other food to stay in budget for the week.   Making me really think about what it would be like to be a parent and have to think so much about feeding my kids and having to trade-off between healthy food and offering them “more” food.
