FREE “Real Food” Meal Plans

I’ve come across a lot of “meal plans” lately in both magazines and online. They’re always inspiring with so many different and creative ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner (each meal requires a separate recipe of course and never utilizes “leftovers”). Sure, if someone else was doing all of the cooking for me I would sign right up for one of those plans.

Then some other meal plans tell me that their dish made with goat cheese only costs $2 per serving. Well guess what, you can’t buy goat cheese by the serving (it costs $4 a container at best!). So rather than complaining about it, I’ve decided to come up with my own meal plan – two of them actually. And this is what you’ll find:

  • Two 7-day practical “real food” menu plans designed for busy families
  • Complete meals listed each day for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner
  • Food quantities calculated for a family of four
  • Corresponding grocery lists showing what to buy (in order of the store) and actual cost for each item
  • Budget-friendly prices compatible to what a family of four would receive on full food stamp (SNAP) benefits – $167/week – with additional cost-saving opportunities because…
    • Coupons were not used
    • Sale prices were not used
    • Prices for organic items were used in most cases
  • All underlined recipes are available on 100DaysofRealFood.com – check out the Recipes & Resources Page for a full list
  • All recipes are working mom/dad-friendly including tips on what to make in advance over the weekend
  • Almost every item listed follows our strict 10-day pledge rules, with just a few minor exceptions to keep the plan realistic for those busy working parents
