I try very hard to serve my family only whole and organic foods. The organic part does not always happen, but I strive to at least feed them only whole foods. We do eat pre-packaged foods at times, but I try to keep it to a minimum. I am trying to find a happy medium between serving only organic, natural foods and staying within budget. I hope that you will join me on my journey.
Side note: I am currently working on an ebook that deals with this exact subject, how to feed your family whole foods on a budget. I plan to have lots of recipes. I will let you know when it is complete. Now on to this weeks menu.
I am afraid this menu is not one of my most exciting. I tried to keep it simple and use what we had and make it as frugal as possible. We often eat vegetarian meal, so if you are looking for a menu that uses little meat this is the one.
