Last night we had our Live Q&A #4. We had so many live questions come in, I couldn't answer them all this time! You guys rock! No fear to those who posted your question in advance, though. I'm going to do more 5 minute or less videos that answer one question at a time, and will post them individually. So keep your questions coming…whether I get to them live or not, I will get to them eventually 🙂

See how this works, and see all the other Q&A's HERE.

9:30 By Elisa- I was diagnosed with Ciliac's disease so I can't eat any gluten. Now my grocery budget it out of control and so am I lol. I can't seem to make my 450. Budget work. I have a 50. Grocery slush fund bc we have a family of 5, but I like to try and push myself to spend the 50.00 less every month. At this point I am spending well over the 500.00 and have fallen off the budget wagon. I spend over half of my budget on fresh veggies, I switch to mostly frozen fruit to compensate but it isn't helping.
