I have been changing my families diet slowly and one of the things I am most proud of is that instead of asking for cookies or candy at the grocery store my girls always ask for strawberries or other fruit. I am always happy to buy them some but now the price is creeping higher and higher for any type of berries. They love apples and grapes as well but the berries are where their real loves lies.
The major problem is that the four of them can eat 4 lbs of berries at one time. I know that the obvious answer is to not let them have them all at once but reality is that is hard to do. We don't keep junk food in the house. Our snacks are popcorn or fruit/veggies. I do usually have some type of homemade cookies available as well. So what to do??
I was only grocery shopping once a month and picking up raw milk and eggs from my farmer but I find myself needing to do a produce run weekly and it's adding up quickly! I'm thinking that I need to re-evaluate how my shopping should work and I also need to realize that $20 for produce a week won't cut it at my house.
Do you have a set amount of money you spend on just produce? If you do would you mind sharing it?
