Week #4 Menu Plan & New Challenge

I am preparing for a new challenge next month. The doctor has put me on a low-carb diet to help treat my PCOS. So, I am going to challenge myself to stick to budget while eating low carb. I'm contemplating on keeping the budget $75 or bumping it up to $100 to cover the cost of the extra proteins and veggies that will be the bulk of my diet. I'm calling this challenge the Low-Carb On A Budget Challenge!

This week's Menu plan is going to be a usual for my family. Nothing really exciting or new. For TONS of more menu ideas, please check out the great site Org.Junkie!So here is the last Menu for the $75 a week Challenge:

Breakfast Choices:
-cold cereal/banana/milk
-blueberry muffins/milk
-English muffins/applesauce/milk

Lunch Choices:
-turkey sandwiches/green beans/apple slices/milk
-baked chicken/pasta salad/milk
-PB& banana sandwiches/corn/milk

Dinner Choices:

Snack Choices (all snacks are served with 100% fruit juice):
