The variable cost of food is no excuse in keeping the pounds off. If I am willing to look around I can always find healthy and fresh food to fit any budget. I have to be willing to plan my food around the budget and what is available and not fixate on things I (insert whiny reading voice) want. Everything comes around eventually: Avocado's, cucumbers and strawberries this week, tomatoes, mango and cauliflower next.
I bypass the ads for anything processed and stick with the produce section of each sale ad. I do not need to know that potato chips and pints of Ben and Jerry are BOGO (buy one get one). I do not need to know that all creme cakes are discounted all week. I do not care that canned corn is 10 for $10. That is not what I eat today, tomorrow or in case of flood.
Do you allow the allure of a advertisement to change your plan of eating for the better or for the worse?
