I don’t have a food budget because food is a super fluid category. Things happen where one week you eat at home a lot, some weeks you entertain, some weeks you’re on vaca, etc. Crazyness. I focus on finding the best value foods. These are foods that are cheap but nutritious: beans, turkey, carrots, apples, bananas, etc. Then work on finding them at the lowest prices. Grocery prices vary throughout the U.S. a bit and tax on groceries vary from state to state. So everyone’s budget will be different. After a few months of trial and error you’ll be able to know approx. how much to spend.

I would say it all comes down to preference. If you desire to eat healthy foods (vegetables, fruits, meats) you must realize they are expensive and are going to drive up your food bill. On the other hand if you don’t care generally unhealthy food is cheaper. Something that can really get people into trouble is going out to eat too much. Often times going out to eat is expensive and can easily cost you 100 dollars. My family limits going out to eat at 1 time a week.
