MyPlate on My Budget, A Family Favorite

Can I follow the USDA thrifty food plan and feed my family the Choose MyPlate advised daily nutrients?  That’s the question I’m asking this March with MyPlate on My Budget.

I have a huge success to share!

For Meatless Monday last night, I made The Dependable Slow Cooker Cauliflower Indian Stew from Carrie on Vegan.

Everyone in my family liked it!  My kids even asked for seconds.

I was really shocked because the favor combinations created a really unfamiliar palate for my family.  But the coconut cream made everything a bit sweet, and I think that’s what hooked the kids.

Even though I was lazy and used canned beans instead of dry, this whole meal still cost under $7.  Plus, we have many days worth of leftovers for lunches.

So here’s my question for the USDA Choose MyPlate people… 

This vegan dish was cheap, easy, full of veggies, and something my kids actually liked.  Why not recommend Meatless Monday’s every week?

Oh yeah, they tried and got slammed for it.
