RBC stands for Rice, Beans, Carrots. Or is that Cabbage? Whatever. Both.
In a continuation of my tracking how much it costs to eat a whole foods plant based diet, here’s my 2020 update.
My total 2020 food costs:
- Grocery: $6,357
- Dining out: $145
- Net: $6,502
This is a decrease from 2019 of $373.
Assuming 365 days, 3 meals per day, the per meal cost is $2.97. It was $3.15 in 2019.
If you think I devoted a lot of time to cooking that you don’t have, you are incorrect. I cook once a week. I am, however, willing to eat boiled just about anything.
Can I whittle it down even further in 2021? It remains to be seen. Judging by the way we’re handling the pandemic, all signs point to yes.
