Shopping list for vegetarian diet--$100 budget for month?

Ahh...i love these types of questions. When I started grocery shopping for myself, I would spend $100 a week. Even though my mom cooked for me daily, I used to buy processed stuff cause I didn't know how to cook. SO..here's typically what I would buy. I'm at a point now that I just get what I ran out of, I don't have to shop too often, just once a week and I spend ~$20-$40. Again, I won't buy everything @ once, just whatever I ran out of. Note: I shop mostly at Trader Joe's. I get all the 'specialty' stuff [which I'll denote with a §] at Fairway and/or Health Nuts

I have a question about my dog

I have a question about my dog, and I was wondering if there were any dog lovers/experts/advisors out there...

As always: diet and exercise.

For diet, switch to a weight management food. Or continue with your regular dog food, but cut back on her portion by about half to a third. Now, she's not going to be too happy with feeling hungry, so substitute the other third with something low in calories like canned pumpkin or spinach. Instead of treats like bones or dog biscuits, treat her with pieces of carrots instead. You'd be surprised at how much she goes down in just a couple of months.

And, of course, up the exercise regime. Give her as much as she can take.

Lastly, about the barking - when your mom gives her a bone for barking, she is literally rewarding CocoaLatte for the bad behaviour. So now your lab knows - "barking long enough means I get a bone". It would be better if your mom ignored her completely, or if she can't do that because of her call, put her call on hold for a second and send CocoaLatte into the next room, and shut the door. This will effectively be a 'time-out' kind of punishment and CocoaLatte will soon get the message.

Also on this date Tuesday, October 1, 2019...
