    {Kathy} These meal planners are great! For years, I have only been able to plan meals 2-3 at a time. The recipes look interesting, the ingredients healthy! Thank you.

      Hi, Jennifer. With regard to food budgets, I don’t share exact dollar figures because they are not a good gauge since grocery prices vary pretty dramatically depending on where you live and where you shop and of course, how many people you’re feeding.

      For example, I belong to a great co-op called Azure Standard, that makes eating healthier much more affordable and I buy in bulk for all of our staples, which also significantly reduces costs. In addition, we opt to not eat out, except a couple of times of month at most, which frees up more budget for purchasing whole foods.

      When asked about how best to manage a food budget, what I recommend is that each family create a weekly meal plan based on their personal food budget and then find ways to cut costs by incorporating some tried-n-true methods for achieving cost savings.

      Here are two posts that discuss simple ways to do this (save money on whole foods). I hope these help you, as they have so many others, in creating a plan that meets your family’s budget and health goals. And of course, if my meal plans can make it easier on you to do this, that’s definitely my prayer and why I share them here as a free resource!

      In addition, I do know it’s possible to manage on a budget of $350 a month, if you keep meals quite simple. I’ve included a link to my friend Tiffany’s site (Don’t Waste The Crumbs) because she has so many great resources on her site for managing a real food budget on a tight income. You can find her at http://dontwastethecrumbs.com/category/counting-crumbs/

    How difficult are most recipes here for a working mom/wife who gets home at 5:30 every night? On top of beginning to train for a marathon and wanting a healthier eating plan, we really want to make some diet changes, but many seem so complicated and not easy to put together with our busy schedules.
