    New to your website and LOVE IT! How do you shop for your meal plan? Is it planned around the same foods for that week or do you shop for the whole month? Thanks!

    • Well, welcome, and thanks a bunch!!!!
      Shopping for the meal plan…it’s a little of everything. 🙂 I go shopping once a week; at the height of farmer’s market season, that includes both a trip to the farmer’s market and a trip to Whole Foods. I buy the bulk of what we need that week. However, because I’m trying to be conscious of budget, etc. like everyone else, there are a few exceptions to that. 1) When I see high-quality (grass-fed, air-chilled, organic, local, or otherwise responsibly raised/sourced) meat on sale, and it’s a cut I know we are likely to use, I will buy it and freeze it. Often that cut will already be on the meal plan for later in the month, especially if it’s something like chicken; but if not, I make sure to write it into the plan for the following month. That way things don’t languish in the freezer, but I still get the best deals. 2) You’ll notice I’m often unspecific about things like vegetables for side dishes. The reasoning is that I want to be sure to shop consciously, looking for both the best prices and the best quality/seasonality I can find. 3) I try to plan using as many frequent pantry staples as I can — whole-wheat flour, frozen fruits, bottled tomatoes, dried beans and grains, etc. Then I just buy those as I run out (or as they go on sale) and keep my supplies replenished.
      Does that help?
