Day 1 :)

9 May

I woke up this morning and had a game plan change ^^

Originally, I was going to stick with bread and tuna for day one, and move on to pasta for day two, supplementing in between meals with carrot sticks.

However, I opened my fridge to take out the carrots and discovered about 700mls of milk that will expire the day the fast ends.

Thus, my meals for today became:

Milk – probably 30cents worth from a 1$ litre

Bread – 4 slices from a 24 slice loaf, 35 cents(approx?) (I had two of the four slices as a snack for tea but whatever :P)
Beetroot – 10 cents worth (I think xD)
Tuna – .45$

In total my food consumed today was worth: $1.20

Cost of the food in total(including leftovers):  4.23$
Breakdown Bread(20 slices left): 1.59, Milk(dunno how much left of the 1 litre): 1$, Beetroot(lots left :S): 0.75$, Tuna(half left): $0.89

I am assuming this will be repeated tomorrow.
Though actually I think I might use the 2$ sausages and 1$ carrots instead(bring my total up to 7.23$ – because the thought of eating tuna again…)
Picture of my dinner!

Very appetizing, I know.
I want bubbletea!! :C And cake ><
And after this LBTL I don’t want to see tuna. For a really long time. ._. (unless it is raw/lightly seared sashimi style :D)

Certain disclaimers (I am oh-so-honest :P)
The tuna I am eating is not the cheap .89$ for 185g from Aldi – it is the much more expensive John West brand.

However, my justifications for this are:
My housemate had bought those tuna cans and left them there when she left – I don’t normally eat canned tuna >< – I think it is redundant to go out and buy more of what I don’t eat (Speaking of which, does anyone want frozen sweet corn? >.>).

Perhaps the more expensive brand tastes better but the choice of flavours that she had bought isn’t exactly what I would ever eat – e.g. sweet corn mayonnaise (which is a big yuck for me – I dislike sweet corn in my food intensely ><).

    I don’t really like canned tuna either 🙂
    I choose to get the beetroot because I thought the slightly acidic flavour would make the bread and tuna more palatable (and it did!) XD

    (Though after two days of beetroot I think I’m a little sick of it – will probably pass on it tomorrow and try again on Thurs :D)

    oh beetroot’s acidic? I think I had it once as a desert when I was in halls..beetroot crumble i think it was meant to be..and that put me off it for life..i think I have had it in vegetable crisps though..that was fine =p
