I'll reply in more detail later, but here are a few starting points:
Stop the double meals! Prepare meals that can either stand alone or with the addition of meat on the side.
Focus on whole foods that can be bought in bulk (or larger packages.) Rice, beans, carrots, frozen veggies on sale.... These will help keep your cost per serving down.
Canned beans are very convenient, but you're paying to ship that water all over the country. If you have a crock pot you can do up a big batch once a week, then freeze them in can-size portions. (1 3/4 cup beans plus liquid to cover. Use a 2 cup container.) You can sort the dry beans while you watch TV in the evening, soak them overnight, rinse, drain and cover with water in the morning and cook them all day.
I'll copy to this thread a post I made on another forum about menu planning and cooking for a blended audience (veg*n/omni).
It's good to see some activity here! Thanks!
