What we ate in May, and how much it cost

Once more, for the record, this is a chart of everything we ate during the month of May 2008..

Fruit Quantity Cost
Apples 6kg $6
Avocados 110 $83.65
Bananas 8kg $7.60
Capsicum 5 $1.50
Cherimoya 2kg $5.70
Cucumbers 5 kgs $11.13
Durian 53 kgs (including shells) $160.50
Grapes 30 kgs $56.00
Kiwi 6 $3
Mandarins 4kg $7.70
Oranges 25kg $21.06
Persimon 10 $5.10
Pineapple 8 $16.50
Tomatoes 27 kgs $36.50

Totalling $436 Which means that we averaged just over $14 (for 2 of us) each day on food.. That's roughly just $7 each! (Australian dollars per day).

Now that's budgetting! Considering that most people here would need easily 5 or more times that amount each day depending on the state of their toxicity.. feeding addictions such as tobaco and alcohol as well as the take-away fast food cravings that regularly also get appeased.

Bare in mind that we generally eat an average of 5 or 6 different things each day, that I fasted on Fridays, and that we did 9 or 10 days on mono grape juices, it should give a very rough idea of what we might eat on a daily basis..

We don't follow the traditional 3 meals a day plan.. rather we sort of graze throughout the day.

We don't really have a pattern. Just eat when we feel to.. and as a rule of thumb we are generally ready for food at about the same time.

To see more of what we eat on a more or less daily basis, then head over to Kveta's blog, where she tends to give rough summarys of what we both eat daily..

You should consider giving us a typical days breakdown sometime yourself. I do read Kveta's blog but she tends to be somewhat vague or maybe being American, her sentence structure is difficult to understand.

Hi Rick & Tornerose,
thanks for the feedback.. Yes, good suggestion Rick, I will try in future to include the summary of a typical days eating..

yes, we are very lucky to have such a good selection of reasonably priced fruit where we live.. The goal of course is to be growing our own.. That'll happen later.
