Monthly healthy food grocery bill?

My question is how much do people spend on healthy eating grocery bills for 2 adults? This includes vitamins, protein powders, and other healthy supplements. Me and my husband and our two dogs have a heck of a time trying to stay under $2000 a month, and we feel we are being very conservative. We never even eat out, brown bag lunches everyday, never a fancy dinner, hardly any snacks. But we purchase organic produce and we don't buy processed foods, no grains anymore because we don't tolerate any grain well. This way of living sounds reasonable, but we are trying to save money for a home and the cost of our grocery bill seems so high. And I'm a savvy shopper! We use Costco wherever it makes sense to. But they don't have high quality organic grass fed meats, so I have to get that from Whole Foods. I know some cannot afford it, BUT assuming you DO have the money and have chosen to live this lifestyle, how much do YOU spend on this sort of lifestyle? I'd really like to know I am not going crazy here and this really costs this much. Thanks!
