A Budget Meal Plan – Vegetarian

A budget meal plan – vegetarian

I mainly write about food on my Eat Simply food blog but I have been thinking for a while that I need to start meal planning over here at Family Budgeting and reviewing my budget – as our food shop spending can really get out of control.

It can be really shocking how much of our budget goes on food actually – and quite how much gets wasted. I am not proud of it and i is not setting a good example to my kids either

I have had a very expensive last few weeks so I am going absolutely back to basics here and that means meal planning.

Here is what is on the budget menu plan – vegetarian at Casa Family Budgeting  this week

A Budget Meal Plan – Vegetarian, Simple and Thrifty

I am using lots of things from my store cupboard this week in my meal plan and lots of frozen veg too. I plan to just shop for bread and milk and a salad and keep costs as low as possible:



(Dads away so keeping it super simple today)

Tomato or Vegetable soup and Cheese on Toast



Spaghetti  with Roasted Vegetable Sauce



Veggie burgers with sweetcorn relish  and home-cooked sweet potato fries  and green salad



Black Rice Salad and veg (with Quorn bacon for the kids)

Sweet Chill Tofu and Rice (for us)



Homemade tortilla pizzas and a quinoa salad



Veggie quiche (using leftover veg form Friday) with baked potatoes



Nut roast and all the Sunday lunch trimmings and lots of black pepper
