  • Potatoes
    Pinto Beans
    Beans - any
    Rice
    Frozen Vegetables
    Spices, but no seasoning packets
    Apples
    Bananas
    2 dozen eggs
    16 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
    lettuce
    canned tomato sauce

    No meats? Ergh... and there are a LOT of starches... this would be HARD for me. lol

    well, you could do salads for sure, even spruce them up with adding banana's and apple's etc to the mix.
    Vegetable stew with the tomato sauce and veggies and potatoes.
    Egg sandwishes, scrambled eggs and omelets.
    Mexican Rice with the beans and rice.
    Stir fry.
    Snacks and such from just the veggies and fruits.

    That's sadly about all I can think of!

  • I might be able to pull it off, but would have a hard time without any meats.

  • It would depend on the QUANTITIES of what you have... the only thing you've given an amount on is the cheese. Yes, I could pull it off, if there was enough of each thing.

  • That looks a lot like my usual shopping list, though I would also need peanut butter, pasta and soy sauce; the potatoes would have to be sweet potatoes.

    sweet potato and black bean burritos
    lentil sloppy joes
    veggie stews
    curry
    black bean soup

    There are lots of things that I could do with this.
