    How much money do you spend on food?

    Not including cheat meals, supplements and going out occasionally, how much do you guys spend on food?

    Probably every 2 or 3 weeks I will spend around the 100 marker. The rest of the time it's close to 65.

    I eat alot of ground turkey Witch is cheap and then what ever the store has on special for chicken. ( usually meat that is going to be out of date soon) I cook it pritty much right away so that doesn't bother me

    right nothing wrong with doing that. Serve safe allows protein 7 days shelf life once cooked and stored properly

    it all depends if i need to get protein or not. i usually spend around $50-60 on myself without any chicken/turkey.

    i usually have enough venison, fish, and other game animals to get me through most of the year, so i don't buy much protein at all

    For sure, the only thing that sits in the back of my head is that it's usually the big a** breasts that have so much growth hormone in them from the farms. Nutritionaly might not be the greatest

    I try to, wild hogs are free to trap and harvest all year round.

    Only can hunt venison for a few months, as well as ducks. Fish, you catch them all year round.

    I stock my freezer to the gills with wild game and fish.

    I'd say about $250-$300 a week for a family of 3...it all depends on the price of the meat I choose and whether or not it's on sale....obviously I eat more than my wife and daughter that both eat like birds...

    I do to Sam's club and buy everything I need for about a $100. And I spend about an extra $50 going out to eat. So $150 is about right for me. Sam's clubs 10lb bag of chicken is only $20. So it's not to bad
