I am the...

Lb per lb.
Prefer to buy $7 steaks vs $4 hamburgers...
Prefer to buy $3-4 beef (80-90% quality meat other sinews, fat etc) vs $3-4 worth kibbles (with only 30% max? less quality protein, to make up 80-90% protein times 3)
Prefer to buy date still good but managers special..
Prefer save on weekdays (cook $1 per person meals), enjoy on weekends (will splurge on Wagyu, aged steaks etc. Or eat out)
Prefer home grown during growing season, eat free veg from garden to buy some (not all) organics in winter...
Etc.

Type frugal.

Dandelion is very very good for you!!!
Fights cancer.

I make dandelion porridge in place of spinach, make saag paneer with dandelion greens, use in chinese hot pot instead of chrysanthemum greens etc.

Looooove dandelions.

I also make lambs quarter banchan marinated blanched korean dish..

I love my free weeds.
