Gluten Free/Organic Meal Plans for Large Families:: Week 3

Each Tuesday I will be sharing our family meal plan for the upcoming week. I have gone so long without a list or even a menu for my family, I don't advise that at all. Coming home after spending 100's of dollars and wondering what's for dinners. Then you figure out what you want to make and you’re missing something, then you’re off the store again.

We try to eat really 100% gluten free, and organic. We eat about 50-60% Raw most of the time, and I am telling you there is a big difference in how you will look and feel.

I wanted to add that for my family of 11 we spend around $400.00 a week on food. During the summer less since we will be eating from our Garden. That comes out to just about $5.30 per day to feed each person in my family. I know families that spend that at Starbucks each morning. It can be done! You can get great coupons and shop the deals, and load up when you find a great sale.

I bought 20 coupons for Organic Valley last week which cuts my Organic milk price in half.

I also was able to find coupons for $1.00 off of Gluten free bread. You just have to look and pay attention and you can save big!
