$6 dollars of Fruit and or Vegetables

10 Oct

This is my W.I.C voucher and I know what your thinking, 6 whole dollars!?! I look at it as some thing else I didn’t have to buy-which helps-. In my situation we have to feed a family of 5 on a family of 3 budget-my daughter “gets” the W.I.C-. W.I.C helps our family by providing extra food that my daughter can’t eat and my husband’s kids can; we can go back and forth from W.I.C to the food stamps getting gluten free food-most of which is expensive but that’s another post!-

What to get with $6?-if you click the pics they will grow-

                                                           

It’s sad because I used to get dried fruit with and fresh herbs with the W.I.C, at least-in California-they still let you get organic fruit.-I have on many occasions switch the labels for regular and organic fruit/vegetables. Every little bit helps!-

With one of these-and depending on time of year-I’ll get an onion, Tomato, maybe squeeze in a bulb of garlic-WHAT THE F* IS UP WITH THE GARLIC IN THE STORES?!?!-Some times I’ll switch the garlic for a lemon or get a big bag of carrots instead. I tend not to get canned fruit unless there is a brand I like and there’s a good sale, same goes for the frozen fruit. Frozen vegetables I get the standard peas, broccoli, spinach. Also-this happens rarely-in the summer time and when the price allows I’ll use whole voucher on a pineapple-yeah they cost about that much!-.
