It is disappointing to see that there has not been any reply here as I also have a large family (6) to feed on a budget and was looking eating cleaner and teaching my family about healthier choices.

I sure hope something comes up but for now, we do a lot more freggies, fresh, salads, smoothies and MUCH smaller portions of meat since we were eating like 2x more per 'serving' than we should have been.

I also have cut as much processed foods as possible.

Hope to see something here to help us out soon!

Hi there! I just joined the team and introduced myself in the "Introduce yourself" thread. My main concern is providing clean food on a budget for a big family. I have to feed my husband, 6 kids and myself. When I first learned about clean eating, I just dove right in and ended spending A LOT of money to feed my family. I do realize now it's mainly because I didn't really keep it simple and used recipes from magazines that require a lot of different and also "new to me" ingredients. I learned my lesson and want to be smarter this time but I do need help.

What clean meals can I make that are delicious to kids and are reasonably priced? What clean dishes do you take to parties? (due to the quantity of food)

Thanks!
