Today we chat about the expenses of supplying your household with food, and the social aspect of eating.  Our friends, as much as we love them, influence us to spend money going out and, as a result, we neglect the groceries we spent way too much money on!  Grab a glass and join the conversation.

 

Show Notes:

  • Groceries are expensive!
  • One-stop shopping versus shopping the town for the best prices
  • Value added: quality over cost?
  • Tip: Get “basics” at the lowest-price store you can (canned goods, dry goods, spices)
  • Food is a controllable expense… or is it?
  • Social pressure to spend money on food
  • Creating a social event out of saving money on food-- our ideas
  • Budget honestly for your social eating expenses
  • What happened to pregaming?!
  • Shopping based on what’s on sale, then planning your meals around what you bought
  • Balancing a busy life and economical habits
  • Wine of the Day: tastefully absent (the reviews are made up and the points don’t matter)
  • Questions:
    • Gretchen in Kent, Ohio: As a grad school student cooking for one on a limited budget, what do you suggest for eating healthy and keeping my funds in check?

Today, we chat about our health and what we feed our bodies. Are fad or “crash” diets the way to go, or is it better to change to a vegan, vegetarian, or paleo lifestyle? Is diligent calorie counting truly the best way to watch your waistline? We discuss these questions along with the idea that maybe it’s just better to go with whatever works best for your body.

 

We’ll discuss:

  • Wine of the day: 2014 Colby Red Blend
  • Our dieting stories
  • Is calorie counting a silver bullet for weight loss?
  • Make health work for you even when life (or master’s studies) gets in the way.
  • Quality versus quantity: is it what you eat more important than how many calories you consume?
  • Charcuterie… is that Japanese?
  • Whole foods (not the store) in America
  • The cost of high quality food
  • Volunteer opportunities? Let us know!
  • Heal your mindset surrounding food.
  • Map out your food history
  • Male issues with nutrition and body image… are they the same?
  • Childhood coping mechanisms and how they affect us now
