It starts in the cart

I’ve been quiet, I know…

Here’s my Sunday shop: R330 (+-$30) healthy food from Pick ‘n Pay Supermarket, Cape Town, South Africa.

I should add that each post in this series represents the food that I eat in a week. I don’t let anything go to waste. I always get 6-7 breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and snacks. To anyone that says ‘eating healthy’ is expensive, I beg to differ.

I’m doing this series as a visual representation to myself. I’ve recently started a full-time job, and I thought it would be hard to keep up, but I’m managing! Kudos to anyone working and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and even more to anyone also supporting and caring for a family!
