I've talked about it a bit, but we've started eating a lot more organic recently, shopping from the coop grocery I have fond memories of going to as a kid. We're also trying to consume less processed foods. To the extent that I have some soft winter wheat setting in the pantry right now. I desperate want a mill, but the one I want is $500 so I'm going to try to diy one up for the time being.
Cheese and butter are the big processed gaps right now in our diet.
Doing this to produce nudged the budget up, we now budget $275 to $300 a month on groceries for the two of us, but we're still learning to shop seasonally. Milk and eggs cost more by a factor of 2x (milk) to 5x (eggs) and are the most expensive change, but cheap animal products are a new thing anyways.
Eating is complex. I've eaten more meat this year (read: any) than I'm really comfortable with, but Steph's family have given us a lot of deer. I impulse bought half a pound of local-pasture-raised sausage and half a pound of farmers-market-from-the-nice-lady-who-knits lard recently too. Shit, I've been kicking around the idea of smoking a butt for the grubski challenge.
There is apparently a point where if cows milk is local enough, I feel more comfortable with buying that than shipping almond milk in from a thousand miles away.
Sorry for the ramble, not awake yet to really string those thoughts together.
