For roughly 8 weeks we will all be trying to eat as cleanly as possible while adhering to a paleo/primal nutrition plan. And of course getting into the gym and training our butts off!
For this years challenge Kristy and I have decided that we will be keeping to a tight-ish budget for our food and drink bill each week.
After a little bit of research online about what the average income in NZ is and what would be the lowest average incomes in NZ, we decided to set the task of only spending $75 a week per person on food and drink.
This equates to just under $11 a day per person. Doesn't sound like much but we are hoping to show that it is more than enough. Too many times people say to me "It's far too expensive to eat healthily and to eat the way that you do". After this challenge we will try to prove all the nay sayers wrong!
Below is a quick video showing the food that we bought for the first week. Seeing as there are four of us at the flat, everyone has agreed to the $75 limit a week. So for four people for the week we have $300 to spend on food.
So stay tuned for some new recipes and a few videos to show you all the awesome things you can make on a budget!
