Food in Granada is quite inexpensive. When I spend around US $10 at the market I can feed three people with that. I can buy chicken or meat, cheese, plantain, and rice and I will have enough and plenty for dinner. I may even have something left to cook the next day.
I do not feel restricted with what I need at all. I spend around $300 every month on food and that is good enough to feed my whole family.
How much you spend on food obviously depends on what you choose to buy and maybe the brands that you choose. My wife and I prefer to live a non-pretentious, low profile lifestyle. We do not always buy top of the line products. We like local, normal food. We do not particularly look for a specific brand all the time. To give you an overall idea, a budget of $1,300 per month for my family’s expenses is good enough in my class. I do not feel like I have to budget everything just to manage my finances. $1,300 per month already covers food, clothing, and my car.
With a budget of $130 to $160, a single person can purchase food for a month. This would equate to about $5 per day.
