What can you eat for $100 in a week and still stay organic and healthy? This grocery list and general meal plan makes great cheap meals for 4.
These are natural foods are inexpensive, filling and will even be even kid friendly.
I hit up Aldi’s for 2 bags of grassfed beef jerky ($8) and some veggie pouches for the kids if we are going to be out. And then the rest is from the grocery store or farmer. Aldi’s also has grass fed ground beef for $6 a lb.
All of the groceries below can be found at any grocery store.
A good basic grocery list for a tight week looks like this:
- Organic free range eggs avg $5 a dozen
- Organic Jam, $4 a jar
- A whole chicken= broth and 2 meals. Organic free range from the farmer is about $25
- Sprouted Rice is $4 a bag.
- Organic Apples and whichever fruit is in season: $12-$25
- Braunschweiger deli meat: $7 a lb
- Pound of grassfed beef: $6-8 a lb
- Loaf of Sourdough: $4.50 a loaf
- Box of organic greens: $6
- Frozen organic veggies: about 3/4 varieties for $16
A General Meal Plan with those groceries looks like:
Breakfast: Eggs and Veggies, Toast with Grassfed Butter and maybe Jam, hard boiled eggs
Lunches: Braunschweiger on sourdough or soup with chicken, rice and frozen veggies, chicken salad or salad with chicken topping
Snacks: Fruit, Jerky, hard boiled eggs
Dinner: Frozen Veggies and chicken, chicken and rice, beef and veggies, salad
Bonus: When you cook the chicken you have the broth to cook the rice. You can also make the chicken into chicken salad, or add to the eggs and make a fritatta with veggies which is great for breakfast or dinner.
