This sounds like an excellent plan, however it uses 2 items that at least for family aren’t feasible. My youngest is allergic to peanuts and eggs. A lot of your daily menu include one or both. What do you suggest as a replacement?

Ack! Jennifer, I thankfully haven’t had to deal with food allergies. I know it makes food planning and budgeting so much harder. For peanut butter I’d just substitute sunbutter, or almond butter. Obviously, this increases the cost some. As far as eggs go – I use them in my menu as a protein source – so any other inexpensive protein (greek yogurt, cottage cheese, even chicken thighs) would work as well. Sorry!

I love reading your posts! Thank you so much for sharing this! I found your article when I was searching how I could feed my family on a cheaper budget. Do you have recipes for the banana muffins, roasted chicken, tilapia and salmon croquet’s? Thank you again for sharing how you do this!
