Healthy Eating on a Budget

Sample 2-Week Menus

These sample 2-week menus can be used by any person or family wanting to follow a healthy diet at a modest price. The menus are designed to meet nutrition needs on a budget.

All recipes require only kitchen equipment that most people have. Lunches are designed to be packable so they can be taken to work or school. Some lunches use remaining portions from recipes prepared for dinner the night before. Menu items can be moved between daily meals, such as swapping a banana at breakfast for an orange at snack. Snacks can be eaten at any time of the day. In addition, meals can be moved to fit family schedules, such as switching lunch with dinner.
