To save on the budget I really recommend looking for a bulk food store in your area, sometimes they are part of an organic store too. They will usually have things like whole flax seed available much cheaper than the regular grocery stores.
They also often have many spices for 70%+ off the cost of retail purchased spices.
My only tip would be to use a lot of spices, fresh if you can, dried works too to punch up the flavor so that regular foods don't become boring. Give something an Italian flare one day and a Mediterranean flare a couple later to keep it mixed up and exciting! =D Good luck!
One day, one step at a time. We will succeed.
