I came across a YouTuber who took a SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program) challenge project. For one week, his family of three would see if they could eat well (organic, whole foods) on a government assisted food program amount. I believe for a family of three he would get a little over $100/week.
Here are his results.
His meals were a bit repetitive, and there were lots of eggs used, but all in all they did it. I was quite impessed with the creative meals they did have, and no one starved. (Check it out here if you can’t get the link above.)
There is no excuse for not eating well on a budget. If I budget $150.00 a week for three, I should be golden.
If you buy organic and whole foods, do you spend a lot of money or do you stay on budget?
