Hunger Challenge: Day 1 & 2

Day one and day two of the Hunger Challenge down! On Sunday morning I made a delicious and cute to look at breakfast of banana pancakes, scrambled eggs and coffee for Christoph and me.We skipped lunch because we had a pretty late and large breakfast. For dinner, we had spaghetti, cheese toast and salad.

Day 1 Cost (For me and Christoph)
Coffee: $0.54
Eggs: $0.68
Pancakes: $1.00
Salad: $1.40 ($3.50 for all ingredients / 5 servings)
Pasta: $2.48 ($6.20 for all ingredients / 5 servings)
Toast: $0.22
Total: $6.32 (Budget for the Day: $9.44)

Day two was a bit more difficult. I had an extremely busy Monday morning so I only had time for a granola bar. I was hungry so I had an early lunch which consisted of a grilled cheese sandwich, an apple and a squirt of mustard. Pretty good.By around 4 PM, I was hungry once again so I had another granola bar then it was off to soccer practice.

Soccer practice lasted from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM…….Three and a half hours of just about nonstop running! More than usual because I had a one on one with the coach before the team practice. By the time I was done I was exhausted and starving.

The second I got home I started boiling water for the spaghetti and I practically ate the whole meal standing up. The left over spaghetti tasted amazing. Much better than the day before, but that’s probably because I was so hungry.

Day 2 Cost
Coffee: $0.54
Granola Bars (2): $0.59
Apple: $0.34
Grilled Cheese: $0.75
Salad: $0.70 ($3.50 for all ingredients / 5 servings)
Pasta: $1.86 ($6.20 for all ingredients / 5 servings)
Toast: $0.11
Total: $4.89 (Budget for the Day: $4.72)
