It's okay that you are in a budget, but just remember to always buy your family those nutritious ones and fresh.

Another variation of lentil soup that we absolutely love.
Soak 1/2 packet of dried green lentils in water until soft (I put them on in the morning and make the soup mid afternoon so I can let it simmer for a while)
Sauté a slicked leek (could use onion but I really like it with leek)
Grate up 1-2 carrots and a sweet potato and add to leek.
Add in 1 whole packet of ground cumin. I buy the plastic ones that you're meant to refill your jars with, red packet I can't think of the name sorry, but they aren't expensive!
Drain the lentils and add into the mix. Give a good stir and cover with water. Allow to simmer as long as you like. It has to simmer a while to become yummy.
I like to blend at least half of it so it's a smoother and creamier consistency. If you have it - a scoop of natural yoghurt on top is really yum!

Did you know eating cr@p doesn't fill your tummy for as long as decent food? And that there is strong documented evidence that eating bad contributes to poor health , therefore you may save a few $$ in groceries but then spend a lot more on medications to "manage" an illness that otherwise would have been avoided had you eaten properly in the first place.
Not to mention potential loss of wages or employment due to poor health and weight issues. ( I personally know of atleast half a dozen so I personally know it does happen)
You can feed a family cheap with healthy food. We can spend less than $30 on fruit and veg from the markets and come away with more than enough to cover a growing family for the week.
Protein doesn't have to be meat, eggs and legumes are perfect substitutes. The supermarket often has lentils and chickpeas for $1 a can . Mix with some veggies , eggs and breadcrumbs to make patties that are yummy, cheap and good for you ( and enough to feed a whole family)
