Apparently everyone else on the internet cooks more than me and eats more vegetables (what are those again?). A post last week on Get Rich Slowly asked how much you spend on food. My raw numbers were a lot lower comparatively than I expected. But that’s probably because when other people eat out they do so at fancy restaurants ordering expensive food. My carne asada burrito addiction isn’t that expensive. Plus buying a bunch of cheap mexican food every week means I can spend less on groceries thereby saving money.
Miss Outlier just posted about how she uses online tools to keep using the fresh ingredients she has. Even Comrade Physio Prof makes a pretty mean risotto. All this cooking and healthy eating can really make you feel shameful about your own bad food choices. But I still do my part. I mean how many of you are running a gopher preserve in your front lawn, huh? That’s right. I care about nature and sustainability and the environment and wildlife. Run free gophers, run free.
