200 Meatless Meals for Families on a Budget

These meatless recipes are healthy, cheap and flavorful. As you probably already know, meat is the most expensive part of the grocery bill so going meatless is an easy way to reduce food costs and improve your health. I have meatless meals at least 3 times a week and it cuts my grocery bill down by 35-40%.

This is a list of my favorite meatless recipes that will save you time and money without sacrificing flavor. There are hundreds of recipes for lunch and dinner with a variety of different types of dishes (Asian, American, Italian, Mexican, etc.)
