I found that I sent way less money when I cut back on the animal products, don't eat as much, and buy quite a bit of frozen fruits (morning smoothies!!!) and veggies, dried or canned beans, and low-sodium meat substitutes such as morning star. I used to spend probably close to 100 dollars a week for just my husband and I. I now spend 40-60/week! The nice thing about eating healthy, at least for me, is I instinctively know what is actually going to last me a week. I know by the amount of servings in everything. I no longer need to buy a lot of extra food because I would eat way more than a serving at a time! If you live in a city, not only farmer's markets, but street vendors are often much cheaper that stores. I know that's the way it is here in Boston.
