index

Read this post if you want to find 2-week meal plan for a family of 5 for $170 which requires only one shopping trip. All the recipes are homemade, have organic ingredients and you and your family will definitely love them.

Two meals are larger, so you will utilize the remains of one meal to make another meal and you’ll have two meals. I’m almost certain that each family has two evenings in a span of two weeks where they are out (at a restaurant, at a friend’s house…) or they have one of those nights when everyone eats different things.
