February Real Food Meal Plan from The More With Less Mom

Ideas and resources for menu planning in February, many seasonal winter and real food recipes. Very simple ingredients, from scratch, frugal recipes. Real food/from scratch/traditional diet/nutrient dense/whole food/blah blah blah.
You can save so much money by planning your meals. Even if you only plan three days at a time, you can be more thrifty by planning ahead.

Gasp! It’s the beginning of the month and I’m posting the meal plan. You would think I was actually organized.
