Frugal Real Food Meal Plan is designed for a family of four for $350. There are some variables to keep you within that budget such as family preferences, shopping habits, and local prices.
While this plan is all real food, it is not diet specific. Many gluten-free or dairy-free families have used this plan and made substitutions to make it work. It is up to you to decide if you want to put in the additional work of making this plan fit within a special diet.
The recipes included use commonly used items so you won’t end up with a stray jar of curry paste and never use it up. Many of the meals are intentionally linked so that you will use up any ingredients that aren’t always on your list.
In order to stay within your budget, we recommend making most everything from scratch. Many busy families are able to make all of the from scratch recipes work within their schedules. However, if you do reach a season where making items from scratch is truly too much, look through the recipes and make simple substitutions for those items. (Just note that you may not be saving as much by purchasing pre-made items.)
