What is usually on your shopping list? How do you make sure you are getting a variety of meals without spending too much money??

What I'm struggling with right now is how much do I need to buy. I always have really.

We eat beans, they are super cheap!!! Lentils in EVERYTHING. I made the "snobby joes" from post punk kitchen's site the other day and they were AWESOME! i cannot wait to make them again tomorrow. Chickpeas go in everything too. Hummus is the best, i love the Sabra brand of hummus. I make wraps or just eat as dip. Barley and quinoa are used a lot too, and when bought in bulk, are really cheap (like the bulk bins in markets).

I haven't mastered the art of making quinoa. I looooove Couscous though. LOL.

Today I bought:
Organic Bananas
Bartlet Pears
Salad
Raspberry and Walnut Vinaigrette
Smart Ground
Smart Cutlets
Whole Wheat Pasta
2 bags of frozen roasted red potatoes with different things mixed in (one has green beans, other has red and green bell peppers) and then a Stir Fry mix and a California blend veggie bag
Nutritional Yeast (I bought the nutty flavor kind....YUCK! Gonna see if I can return it for the cheesy flavor kind)
Silk Almondmilk Vanilla
Silk French Vanilla Creamer (so YUMMY in my coffee!)
Brown Sugar flavored Granola cereal
Veggie Cheese (not so sure I like this.....)
Miso Mayo (again, not so sure about it)
Organic Lemon Cookies (I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN!)

I'm going to make spaghetti tonight (when I mentioned it in my other thread I HAD to have some today) with the Smart Ground crumbles and the spaghetti sauce I already had in my pantry. Tomorrow I may make the Smart Cutlet for dinner with a side of rice and veggies. Is this sounding like a good start???

ETA: I already have black beans and chickpeas, which is why they weren't on my list of things I got today.

If you like the smart ground, try the Morningstar crumbles, even better! They are in the frozen aisle. I did not know nutritional yeast came in different flavors. here is great spaghetti recipe with it:
V e g a n D a d: Pasta Primavera
I would use quinoa in place of couscous in a recipe. here is an easy recipe:
Ridiculously Easy Curried Chickpeas and Quinoa | recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

I do not think i ever had a smart cutlet. I have had their chicken tender things though and they were not bad, lemon pepper? i can often get coupons on line for them too. Printable ones.

Gardein is a new company that makes the AWESOMEST mock chicken tenders, omg! so yummy!

However, i am frugal and rarely buy that kind of stuff, but in the beginning, it definitely makes it easier.

As far as mayo, veganaise is the best, imo.

So I made my spaghetti with the Smart Ground and I have to say, I can't tell the difference. It's really good!!!

So when you are cooking for the family, do you make a separate meal for DH or does he eat what you make??
