    7 Days Of Breakfasts, Lunches, And Dinners — All Built From The Same, Under-$70 Grocery List

    Trust me, you can actually follow this.

    Maybe you're trying to cook more at home. Or perhaps you're trying to stick to a stricter grocery budget. Whatever the case, finding wholesome recipes that are both exciting and satisfying can be a challenge. That's where this weeklong meal plan comes into the picture.

    The following grocery list is for one person's breakfast, lunch, and dinner — not snacks — but you can easily double, triple, or quadruple it depending on how many people you're cooking for. Depending on your appetite, you'll probably also have plenty of leftovers to play around with.

    Depending on where you live and where you shop, the total cost of these groceries will vary. But taking into account prices from Walmart, this list came out to around $65 for me.
