Please read this article it may help you feel better about your choice to breastfeed even if you are only able to afford non 'perfect' foods.
Do I need to maintain a perfect diet while breastfeeding? The short answer to this question is NO – .......... Are healthy eating habits recommended for mom? Absolutely! You will be healthier and feel better if you eat well. It is best for anyone to eat a variety of foods, in close to their naturally-occurring state, but this is not necessary for providing quality milk or for maintaining milk supply. Although it is certainly not recommended, a breastfeeding mother could live on a diet of junk food – mom would not thrive on that diet, but her milk would still meet her baby's needs." http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/mom/mom-diet.html

What about those new books, one's by Jerry Seinfeld's wife, that incorporates vegetable purees into items. You can use them in more items (ie thickeners stuff like that). Switch ground turkey for ground beef. Look for what is on sale that week and put it into your old recipes to add new life. Fresh veggies stir fried served over ramen noodles.
