Hubs and I are doing Financial Peace University at church. While doing our "quickie budget" I saw that our food budget is, ahem, a lot more than I think it should be. Therefore, I spent a LOT of time on Saturday looking for recipes. Recipes that are budget friendly, yet- still healthy.
It proved to be a difficult task. It is really easy to eat on a low budget if you eat lots of pre-packaged, not so good for you kind of foods. It is easy to eat very healthy if you have an unlimited budget.....To accomplish both -- NOT EASY. I spent hours reviewing recipes.....
Here is what I came up with for this week. One thing you will notice is that I've added in breakfast menu's and some lunch menu's also. I'm trying to get my kids to eat something other than poptarts and pb&j everyday.....
breakfast - cereal/cereal bars
lunch - girls will eat at school/ K and I sandwiches/ turkey wraps, fruits and veggies
supper - eating out before PTO program
breakfast - eggs and toast
lunch - turkey wraps, fruit and veggies
supper - Crockpot lasagne, salad
breakfast - cereal (hubs has dentist appt. at 7:30 AM)
lunch - me - out with the girls after community bible study/girls school/K might not be able to eat....
supper - Gathering Meal at church-- I think Lemon Herb Chicken Pasta
breakfast - whole wheat strawberry muffins
lunch - English muffin pizza's and veggies
supper - Chili
breakfast: homemade almond coconut granola
lunch: girls at school/ K and I leftovers
supper: Homemade pizza
breakfast - Blueberry Maple Pancakes
lunch - leftover buffet
supper: Coconut crusted Tilapia, roasted veggies, rice pilaf
breakfast: cereal or poptarts
lunch: sandwiches or leftovers
supper: out to eat
