So this is my $50 haul for my food from Monday to Friday. So $10 a day. I actually could not believe how quick my money went. But I do love a challenge.
The rules are over on my previous blog post LIVING CLEAN FOR $10 A DAY.
Food was purchased from Woolworths and a Fruit and Veg Barn.
I spent 39.40 in Woolworths and 10.10 at the Barn.
Total- $49.50 for all this.
I can use whatever veg or herbs I have growing in the garden (I will tell you what I get from the garden as per recipe) as this challenge is about minimising wastage of food and saving $$.
I first looked at organic food but f#%k my bill was over $120 easy.
Goodbye eating at healthy cafes and hopefully hello $. Im not allowed free handouts either.
Wish me luck.

So I’m meal planning, and pre prepping some of foods to make life a bit easier time wise for my #livingclean410aday or #50in5days challenge.
I have decided to include Cruz and my meals in this cost price too. I didn’t include Dave as he is on a challenge.
All my shopping I completed yesterday.
The prep I have completed so far is
🌟 I pre spirilised a large zucchini.
🌟 pre cooked 300g brown rice in the cooker for the next 3 days.
🌟 I cooked the 500g of heart smart mince with 1 tin of basil and oregano tin tomatoes and separated into a meal for tomorrow for Cruz and I.
🌟 I picked the kale and spinach leaves from the garden.
This is plated up for lunch for Cruz and I for tomorrow.
Recipe for the Bolognese
150g heart smart brown mince
1/4 of the tin of basil and oregano organic tin tomatos
1/2 large zucchini shredded or spirilised.
1 tbsp cottage cheese.
1. Brown mince in the pan until cooked (about 10mim)
2. Mix in garlic and tin tomatoes. Allow to simmer for another 10minutes.
3. Spirilise or grate the zucchini.
4. Serve mince on top of Zoodles (cooked or raw), top with cottage cheese.
Note – this serves Cruz (my baby) and myself.
You can double, or triple the recipe depending on how many servings you wish to make.
I sprinkled a little sea salt on mine.
I look forward to sharing this challenge with you.
Thank you for reading.
