Lasy cheap eats on the go

Sorry for the lack of posting life has been crazy hectic and with working 7 days a week I feel like I rarely make anything post worthy.

Here is a terrible cell phone photo of my breakfast/lunch today, but it was such a good quick cheap last minute grab I had to share.

Running late and having not gotten groceries in a while, I was pretty hard up for food and have been taking instant costco oatmeal to work for breakfast and eating out for lunch.

BUT! This morning I stopped into pete’s frootique to look around and decided to splurg on some 9.99/lbs guacamole. Finding pita chips at 3-4$ a bag, I decided to try to find corn chips when I happened by the bread section and found focaccia for 3.15 for a bag of 8 rolls from a local organic bakery.

So basically, these babies consist of toasted Focaccia, Guacamole, sliced organic tomatoes, dab of regular mustard and salt/pepper. So good, I’m eating one now for breakfast and toasted/wrapped another in the lunch room to take with me during my break along with the 2 costco kwiwis I am still trying to finish.

Here’s the final score

8 Focaccia Loaves from a local organic bakery 3.50$
3 organic tomatoes 1.60$ (reduced produce score)
1 tub of Pete’s Guacamole 6.15$
My total came out to around 11.60$ with taxes etc.
Added some mustard packets from the food section and take away salt/pepper and we are golden.

I figure it’s not bad because this will make 6 meals because I’m generous with the tomato slices/guac, if I skimp I could make a full 8 meals, which for last minute 11.50$/8 =1.44$ a meal is pretty damn good.

Conversely I would now finally have bread for my veggie burgers if I decide to skip a meal or bulk one of the meals up with the frozen patties.



I have them, someday my PC will work and i will fix this place up.

Today I have 6$ my mother gave me and pizza from last week.
I didn’t sleep and was late for work.

The pizza was good when it was made, to lazy to describe it now, not as good as food porn anyways.

Ok, I’ve been slack

And this blog is lame without pictures or really any recipes, sorry it will change when I start eating/cooking.

Today’s lunch:
Green Apple
Vegan chocolate cheesecake (organic market in halifax)
chocolate cookie from the market ^^^
Left over sandwhich from yesterday (flax bread, mock slices, mixed greens, pickles, nayo and mustard)
Pizza! Shredded Global cheese with peperonni, awesome.
Rice cakes from the asian market, their cool and green. I want to take pictures.. but I need a camera and things to work.
