I know that food costs can vary greatly depending on where you live. I'm near Seattle, and I have been shopping at Trader Joes and Fred Meyer, usually. I've recently discovered what an amazing place Winco is for all their bulk grains/flours/nuts and other products, and I'm excited to see how much my grocery bill drops next week!
Here is what we're eating for dinner this week:
1. Spanish Rice and Bean Tacos from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen, with tofu sour cream, corn tortillas, avocado, salsa, chopped romaine and tomatoes.
2. Sweet and Sour Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry with brown rice.
3. Brown rice penne, jarred spaghetti sauce with mushrooms, zucchini, red pepper and kale. Add salad.
5. BEST Lentil and Tomato Soup (this mostly for our lunches)
For breakfast, we eat oatmeal with some kind of fruit in it. I made waffles for the kids breakfasts.
Lunch for the grown ups is soup, leftovers or a veggie sandwich. The kids usually eat a sandwich with veggies (cucumbers, carrots or peas mostly) and fruit. This week, I did one shopping trip and spent less than $125. Up until recently I was allotting like $200/week for groceries and household items, so that was a HUGE improvement! We've had plenty to eat and we love these meals.
