    Oh sorry about that.

    Are you buying any organic with that? You don't eat a huge amount of meat though is that right? That is quite a small amount on food, so just wondering what you buy with that.

    I spend roughly $40 a week. Would be less if I cut out some treats, like salmon and chocolate.

    Wow, what kind of things are you able to buy for that little?
    If we didn't eat any lamb I might cut it down a little, but its hard to imagine getting down by much.

    Yeah, all organic, and raw milk sometimes. Expensive shade grown coffee too. Bulk of my protein comes from dairy, and most of my calories from fruit.
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    that makes sense. Meat is not exactly cheap overall, but I guess you can buy much cheaper depending on what you eat.

    Half of that budget is on meat.

    Only meat I eat is liver once every few weeks and it's like $4 a lb for grass fed

    I eat meat for dinner about 4-5 times a week.

    However, I'm very reliant on kangaroo at the moment because

    1. it's very lean and tasty source of protein
    2. I know automatically that the animal lived as it's supposed to live in nature

    The only roo in the supermarkets is organic. It's about $18-$19/kg. Not CHEAP, but I feel it's money better spent that strugging to find good beef or chicken.

    Otherwise, I get:

    2 dozen eggs
    2 tubs of Greek yoghort
    3L milk
    100-200g smoked salmon
    quinoa bread ($9 a loaf)
    quinoa flakes
    fruit, usually 3 types
    vegetables, depending on what's available but usually include zucchini, capsicum (peppers), onions, garlic, broccoli and cauliflower.
    A few canned or frozen veges for emergencies
    bacon
    cheese (ricotta, cottage, cream)
    honey (but that's more of a monthly thing)

    -Bananas.
    -Rice
    -Offal.

    Offal <3 Amazing source of protein, and pretty much cheap steak/ground meat.

    I spend close to 300 a month, including going out/getting lunch out.

    How many people are you feeding for 800.00?!

    About $250 a week for 3 people, although last week was $350 because I stocked the freezer with meat from a butcher while I was visiting out of state.

    Not sure why I spend so much. I buy organic everything at Whole Foods, oh yeah that's why it's so high.

    But my bill will be better for the next few weeks now that the freezer is stocked. I wish this butcher wasn't so far away. I plan on growing as many of our own vegetables as possible this year. Would love to be food self sufficient eventually.
