I’m trying to eat good for me foods, minimally processed. Nutrient rich. I snack a lot. I must have my coffee, I usually only have 2 cups though. I must have my chocolate, it helps me control binges. I’m also on a budget of about $100 per week, family of 4.
Critique please. What can I be doing better?
