Project: Food Budget - Week three

Goal: $50

Actual: $62.02 (Giant) 

Bonus Card Savings: $13.68

This was another challenging meal prep with trying to balance everything out (45P/45C/10HF).  I need to find an easier way to do this and save money so I can begin to buy supplements.  Then things escalated when I got to the grocer and realized I wasn't going to have enough time to cook any of my meals, so I had to think of some alternatives.  Luckily, I still have a ton of leftovers from last week that I was able to use.

Original Plan:

* Breakfast:
     Overnight Oat Berries+Cereal    
* Post-Workout
    Protein Cookie
* 10am Post-Workout Meal
    Black Bean Oat Burger
* 1pm Snack
    Yogurt Bowl
* 4pm Snack
    banana + pb
* 7pm Dinner
   Teriyaki Tempeh + Brown Rice

Adjusted Plan
