WE are very poor people lol. WE have cut back on the meat because that is the most expensive part of a meal. There are no seconds on meat ever. A serving is 1/2 a small chicken breast for the children a 1/2 a chicken breast for me and a whole one for DH. The other half is his lunch the next day. Normal day as far as foods go. Kids get a whole grain waffle in the morning with fruit or yogurt with fruit. I skip and have milk, it's cheaper if I skip it. For lunch we have either left overs if I made a big meal the night before or I make mac-&cheese with a veggie or spaghetti. Dinner is a small portion of meat a carb and a veggie. Fruits and veggies for snacks. Sometimes with PB to dip. I know I am eating poorly but what about my kids and DH. He is working and need to eat well and my kids are growing. I can do with out but what about them. Do I need to do something else? Oh and beans, cheese or lentils are our protein at lease 3 nights a week.Answer Question

Dried beans and lentils are very health, and very inexpensive, sources of protein. Meal is nutritionally unnecessary.
