I'm Asking: How Much Do You Spend on Food Daily?

I'm Asking: How Much Do You Spend on Food Daily?

I'm a budget-focused gal, but I splurge when it comes to filling the pantry. Health and eating fresh, nutritious foods are paramount to me so I quite literally put my money where my mouth is. The staggering cost of food makes headlines every week, but recent efforts like Food Inc. and Friday's opener of chef Jamie Oliver's new TV series, Food Revolution, are eye-opening reminders of our twisted food system.

How much I spend on food daily depends largely on the season and whether we've cooked meals at home or we opt for takeout, but I'd venture to say my spending is closer to Rachael Ray's $40 a Day than the blogger who spends $1 a day. How much do you dish out daily for grub?

When I started my job I gave myself a budget of $50/week for lunch - sounds like a lot but I work in NYC. I decided to cut myself way down because I am looking to move out of my parents house in about 2 months so I am bringing leftovers/frozen foods every day for lunch now or eating $1 pizza if no other choice is present. I have been able to spend on average $15/week on lunch, but that is including snacks that I buy and keep at work.

I'm in the $5 -$15 per day on a weekday per person, probably much higher on a weekend when we tend to go out to lunch or dinner.
