Day 15: $160 Challenge

 

Yesterday was pretty uneventful. I had been craving v-con’s cheesy sauce, so had to split groceries with hubs again. Besides, we needed margarine.

 

Day 15:

Starting Cash:     $110.79

Spent:     $5.78

Ending Cash:     $105.01

 

Purchases:

Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread with Flax @$2.99, 2 packages firm tofu @$3.59, 1 jar minced garlic @$2.49, 1 bag baby spinach @$2.50.

all divided by 2.

 

Breakfast:

  • PB Banana Smoothie

Lunch:

  • Leftover Split Pea Soup

Dinner:

  • Tofu Florentine

We have a ton of nutritional yeast, so this recipe was actually very cheap and easy to make. I’m not going to write it out since it is from a cookbook, but you can easily find it in a Google search if you’re so inclined.

As you can see, we used raw spinach. I will def be sticking to cooked spinach for this dish in the future.

We still have half a loaf of Food For Life Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted flax bread, so that’s what we used. I love Ezekiel, but really would have preferred an english muffin, or home fries.
