As I posted in an earlier post, I have been working on my Master Meal Plans. I have also been trying to create fast/frugal/healthy menu plans and thought I'd share them with you. I am not a dietician and I'm not sure if any of these meet the RDA of vitamins and minerals that a body needs. After having said that, here are some ideas that I've been playing around with:


  • Scrambled Eggs, Cinnamon Toast, Orange Juice, Milk
  • Coffeecake Muffins, orange slices, Milk
  • French Toast sticks(from the freezer) with syrup, Apple Slices, Milk
  • Dry Cereal, Orange Juice, Milk
  • Pancakes, Juice, Milk
  • Crockpot Western Omelet Casserole, Juice, Milk
  • Hash Brown Sauage Bake, Juice, Milk


  • Tuna Salad Sandwiches, Carrot Sticks, fruit, Milk
  • Bean, Rice, and Cheese Burritos, Mixed Veggies, fruit, Milk
  • Sloppy Joes or Meatloaf Sandwiches, Coleslaw, Fruit, Milk
  • Lunchmeat Sandwiches, Pasta Salad, fruit, Milk
  • Twice Baked potatoes or a Topped Baked Potato, Fruit Salad, Dinner Roll, Milk
  • Tomato Soup, Grilled Cheese, Milk
  • Soutwestern Chicken Wraps with salsa, Milk


  • Meatloaf (make 2 and slice one into sandwich size slices and refrigerate/freeze for lunch), Mashed potatoes, Green Beans, Bread, Milk
  • Oven -Fried Chicken(bake a couple extra pieces for chicken wraps for lunch), Mashed potatoes with gravy, Cream Style Corn, Bread or Roll, Milk
  • Ham Slices, Scalloped Potatoes, Peas, Fruit, Milk
  • Lasagna or Lasagna Rolls, Tossed Salad with Italian Dressing, Fruit, Garlic Bread, Milk
  • Tuna Casserole, Dill Pickle Spears, Fruit, Milk
  • Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Fruit Slices, Milk
  • No Peek Casserole, Rice or Egg Noodles, Milk


  • Pretzels
  • Cheese and Crackers
  • Peanut Butter Crackers
  • Yogurt
  • Fruit and Cheese
  • Trail Mix
  • Apple Slices with Peanut Butter or Caramel Dip
  • Carrot and Celery Sticks with Ranch Dip

So, what do ya think? (yes, we drink ALOT of milk lol) Does it look healthy/fast/frugal? I know there are lots of frugal meals out there, so what are some of your favorite frugal menu ideas?
