What’s to Eat?

August 29, 2017

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday was the 6 year anniversary of my wedding, such a short amount of time and so much has happened to us that I am very grateful that we’ve made it. Congratulations to us!!

Some of you were wondering what we exactly eat. Here’s a list:

Food List

This is just a basic clean eating food list found on the internet that I’ve edited to not include those things that I know for sure we don’t get/eat. This list does not include those things that we just refuse to live without. Down below I have included a more inclusive list of all the things that we will eat.


One basic consistency is that we do not eat anything biblically unclean. This is a personal choice that we have decided to abide by if you eat those things, I do not care or think of you in a different way. That is your personal decision and I have nothing against your choices.

Also, we eat donuts occasionally. With that in mind, I mainly stick to the clean eating list and eat three adequately sized meals throughout the day. Since I have to make my own meals with limited time, with a limited budget, I don’t always get the option of eating what I plan on making in the size I plan on having it. My eyes always seem to be bigger than my stomach.

With that in mind, it seems that with the way we eat we only seem to spend around $150 on pay weekends, then $50 on non-pay weekends during the hot months of the year, while in winter the budget is $200 for pay weekends, and $75 for non-pay weekends. For a monthly food budget (not including going out to eat) of around $400 ($550 during winter). We live in Reno, NV so in comparison to some major cities our food is pretty cheap and affordable depending on what we purchase.

Because we are on a limited income we maybe go out to a nicer place to eat maybe once every 6 months. With my husband and I hardly ever going to a nicer place like Red Robin, we really know how to eat. Just my order would consist of:

  •  Bruschetta Chicken
    • 630 cal
      • 260 cals from fat
    • 29g total Fat
      • 8g saturated fat
      • 0g trans fat
    • 125mg Cholesterol
    • 1480mg Sodium

      • 5g saturated fat

    • 0mg Cholesterol
    • 810mg Sodium
    • 70g Carbohydrates

    • 1520mg Sodium
    • 31g Carbohydrates
    • 4g Fibre
    • 4g Sugar
    • 22g Protein
  • Total for everything- We eat everything that we order. This meal blows my whole day out of food control because I love eating too much. Especially when I don’t have to cook the food.
    • 1580 cal
      • 710 cals from fat
    • 77g total Fat
      • 21g saturated fat
      • 0g trans fat

    • 3810mg Sodium
    • 147g Carbohydrates
    • 16g Fibre
    • 33g Sugar
    • 70g Protein

When you go out to eat, do you tend to order more food than you typically eat on a daily basis? Where do you usually go? I would love to hear from you, or even hear some advice on what I should order when I go.

See you on the other side!
