I am doing this to support my daughter who came up with the challenge for Concern Universal's 'Give it up' for their Survive Five campaign.
I have done some preparation and I am going to journal my experience of the five weeks in 5 mini journals. I am going to record things like how much I spend, where I source items, recipes and a meal plans.
I live within walking distance of the city centre and we are fortunate to have a market twice a week and a Farmers Market on a Thursday. So it is easy to access fresh fruit and veg, most of which is organic. Also there is a really good whole food shop.
I am hoping that going through these five weeks will help me evaluate my shopping habits, eat more healthily and support our local economy.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
