Alena & Adam Spears

We live in North Vancouver. I wanted to do the Challenge because I work with people everyday who are struggling on a tight budget to eat healthy food. I work as a registered dietitian in Vancouver, BC and most of my clients are living below the poverty line. I wanted to experience in one week, part of what they experience for weeks, months or years.

Adam is doing this partly because he finds the concept interesting and partly because I told him he was doing it, ha!

We went shopping today. We realized how fortunate we were on an everyday basis that we can basically purchase anything we wanted. My goal was to remain under budget while still eating a balanced diet. We’ll see how that works out … Looking forward to it.
