“You ‘say’ that you don’t buy anything. You ‘say’ that you’re cleaning the pantry and freezer out. But, you also share your grocery bill. There are a whole bunch of meals being eaten that you aren’t telling us about. This must be a ‘hoax’.”
Since this is essentially the week of coming clean, I guess I should too.
The Great Purge is NOT A HOAX.
Does it have rules? Yes.
Have I shared them all? Probably not.
The Great Purge involves purchasing no proteins (to be used for the supper meal);
The Great Purge does not allow for purchasing of any starches (pasta, potato, rice, etc);
The Great Purge is the main way we are eating all supper meals;
All types (fresh, frozen and canned) of fruits and vegetables are allowable purchases;
Proteins are purchased for breakfast (sausage, bacon, eggs and milk) and for kids’ school lunches (string cheese, sliced cheese and lunch meat, peanut butter);
Starches are purchased for non-supper meals (potato chips for kid lunches, bread for sandwiches, flour and sugar for baking purposes);
The Great Purge does not prevent us from eating out.
That’s the whole list.
If you are following #ByTheNumbers, my next blog post will focus on what I’m buying at the grocery store.
