Day Thirty!

Today is the last day. It feels good to have accomplished our goal of eating on a dollar a day for 30 days. I am thankful for the things we have learned, for the deepening of our awareness. While I'm excited to add more variety to our daily meals, I am very cognizant of the fact that many others in the world don't get to make the food choices that I am privileged to make.

With that in mind, it's hard to imagine going back to our previous food lifestyle. We've decided to extend this project a little. We are going to raise our daily food allowance to $2.00 per day per person. We are also going to allow ourselves to share food with others and accept our tabs at local venues where we are playing. The thought of spending two whole dollars on myself for food each day sounds so exorbitant. I'm going to have to concentrate to actually spend that much. I'm excited to continue a somewhat austere food lifestyle and feel that keeping parameters will help deepen, strengthen, and broaden our thoughts, ideas, and compassion.

I plan to continue to update the blog entries from time to time and will definitely update tomorrow! I'm thankful for all the encouragement and support we've received while exploring the gap and hope you will continue to explore with us.

Daily Meals ~
Breakfast ~ steel cut oats with coffee
Lunch ~ lentil, bean, and barley stew
Dinner ~ sprout salad

Daily Total ~ $1.38
Monthly Total ~ $53.63

Just a little bit of food for thought...
