21 Day Fix - First Shopping Trip!

Today is day 1 of the 21 Day Fix! If you caught my LIVE video over on facebook, you got a little glimpse as to what we purchased for our first week!

If you missed it, I thought I'd give a quick run down of what we purchased and how we stuck to our budget.

I took our cook book and eating plan with us to the store so I could refer to it while shopping!

Thoughts on the budget:
We have a strict monthly budget and work very hard to stick to the budget. So, when we started thinking about doing the 21 Day Fix, we knew we'd need to find a way to stretch the food budget. I was quite pleased to see that by buying in bulk, and planning ahead before our trip we only went over budget by about 20 dollars. 

Question of the day: What are your tips for fast food prepping?
