Despite the extra healthy snack foods on our list, this week’s total was back within our budget. Yay!
Our total for the week was $54. And I feel like our cart was stuffed!
Here’s our menu plan for the week:
Saturday: Chicken & vegetable pot pie (We used a store-bought pie crust to make the recipe easier, and substituted heavy cream for 1% milk to make it a little healthier. And of course I limited my portion size.)
Sunday: Stuffed manicotti (We omitted the beef and added spinach to the stuffing instead. We also left out the butter, and used low-fat cheeses.)
Tuesday: Beef tacos with refried beans
Wednesday: Grilled chicken sandwiches
Thursday: BLTs with baked oven fries
Friday: Homemade pizza
Looking back over this menu, it doesn’t include the healthiest of meals. But I find that as long as I’m careful with portioning, I can avoid eating too many calories for the day.
