What’s it all about?
This blog is an attempt to document spending $30 a week on groceries for two people living in Brooklyn, NY (yes, $15 each). That budget goes for all of the groceries we buy to make our meals for the week. Restaurants, alcohol don’t get counted toward the budget, but then we usually only indulge in those one or twice on the weekends.
Dinner parties can get tricky, etc. etc., but the point is really for us to make our best effort to transition to spending less money and more time and attention on our food (while reducing waste). If we end up spend $32 for a week’s food every once in a while, so be it.
All the meals featured here are 100% vegetarian, but will often feature eggs and dairy. We like our cookbooks, but often make some crazy concoctions with whatever we have on hand.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that our ability to find healthy groceries on the cheap is made much easier by our membership at the Park Slope Food Coop.
