Four months ago I self-diagnosed myself via Dr. Google with peri-menopause. I’m only 36 years old, so naturally I panick a bit when I read “menopause.”
I broke the news to my sister-in-law (who introduced me to traditional foods, this great book and also happens to be an registered nurse) and she talked me off the ledge.
She reminded me that I was a healthy 36 year old woman who in the past year alone, had moved 3 times (including a cross-country move), grieved the death of a loved one, bought a house, supported my husband through 3 job changes ALL THE WHILE running a full-time business and being the primary caregiver of my kids.
Then she asked me if I have ever taken maca. Her timing was absolutely perfect – I had JUST started making a green maca smoothie each morning for breakfast!
When I first started Don’t Waste the Crumbs, I wanted to share all the ways you could save money on food.
Specifically, how the small steps we take can make a big impact over time – because that’s how we transitioned from processed food to real food and have kept our family grocery budget at $330/month for several years.
I thought that sharing budgeting ideas, frugal recipes and grocery hacks was enough.
But it wasn’t.
When I asked Crumbs readers what their biggest struggle was, I kept getting the same answer over and over: eating real food on a budget.
Specifically, how to do it.
