Eating Well on a (Tight) Budget

People often claim that they cannot eat well for the small amount of money they are allotted each week for food. Let’s examine this for a moment. I want to take up a the challenge that a family of 4 can eat for $100 per week. That’s $25 per person, per week, 3 meals per day, 7 days a week.

I will begin with 7 breakfasts that aren’t even difficult to prepare, move on to lunches and lastly suppers. Needs snacks? How about left-overs? If there’s money remaining we’ll get to those too.

    Joanna did this one time… I can’t remember what specific budget she was trying to get under, but I do remember eating peanut soup.
