I have uploaded the text on meal planning from my cookbook on veg cooking for omnis. It is in the thread Vegan Meal Plans. The ideas work for frugal veg whole foods cooking, as well.

I missed this thread!

Here's a link to a great blog done by a woman who is on a frugality rework, so that she can afford to feed her family organically.
She includes recipes, and stories about them, like the time she made organic crackers to take to a potluck.

Here's the link:
http://ecomama.blogspot.com/

I'll send her a link to this group too. She just blogged about Sparkpeople the other day.

I want you to know I haven't forgotten....

I can't find the post containing the veg+omni cookbook. I know it's on the Calling All Vegetarians team message board, but I can't find it. It was around last October or November, so it doesn't show up in a search. I'll have to reformat it from the cookbook text.

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!

ugh! i'm trying to shave back where i can, but i'm not exactly sure how to. i've completely given up meat (fish included) and my husband is still eating meat. i only have a family of four, but i feel like i'm doing separate grocery shopping for everyone. any ideas or thoughts??
