So much depends on the sales. My best suggestion is to meal-plan around your local sales rather than planning meals and then buying what you need. For example, stuffed peppers are a great inexpensive & healthy meal when you can get the bell peppers for 33c each (like we can right now). I could make 6 stuffed peppers for around $4 for the whole meal. However, if they're $2 each, suddenly the meals costs closer to $15, that's quite a difference!

Pasta, eggs/breakfast for dinner, veggie fried rice, vegetarian chili, homemade pizza... basically, our super frugal meals are meatless.
