I have a $110/week food budget for my hubby, 2 kids (5&7) and myself. I usually need to spend about $130-$140/week for the minimum - that is without junk food, soda & processed foods. I cut out the junk to make budget. I already buy real meats, raw (not canned) fruits and veggies, but filled the void with rices, pasta & breads. Now that's not going to work - I can't have that stuff now either. We live in the Northeast, cost of living and food is high!! Any suggestions on how to make this work??

There is this great website called e-mealz and they can help put together low-carb meals for your family (feeds 5-6 people) using items that are on sale in your local grocery shop! They also have links for coupons and flyers. I find it very helpful and I save money because I have a meal plan that I stick to..so it's worth the $5 a month. They also incoporate leftovers into other meals.
Check it out. https://e-mealz.com/index.shtml
