My belly, my budget and my bowels were not in good shape after my post run feed last Sunday.
I’d spent about 2/5 of my budget on 3 items. My belly was bloated and my faeces stunk.
However, by Tuesday the offending items were all consumed and finally working their way out through my bowels and I hadn’t spent another penny. It was all looking fairly salvageable. [I’d spent £35.44 from a £50 budget].
Except of course I wasn’t feeling that good; a combination of fatigue and the salt from the raw bread I think. Or just the processed rich nature of the food.
So I was feeling shit and I decided to use that old short-term-feel-good strategy. Let me eat stuff.
So I did.
This is the shopping basket from Wednesday 19th. Olives and sun-dried tomatoes featured prominently and there’s a token bit of fruit.
That wasn’t quite the fatal blow to the budget. I still had about £5 to play with but it was at that point that I said ‘Fuck it’, consuming salt had become more important.
So it’s been 7 days of high salt, semi-raw stuff along side raw food. It’s all been vegan. But it hasn’t been cheap. I came in at £65 last week. And this week I’ve already spent £63.
