I use this site a lot for recipe ideas, but I agree with the others in that 100 bucks a week for meals like this is unrealistic. I have a budget of 50 dollars a week for my husband and I, for every meal, drink and snack in our home. Most of the time I don't go over this, and I'm able to make fairly decent meals. But when you are truly on a budget, you don't get to be as picky. As someone else had mentioned, you buy the fresh ingredients when they come on sale, and make what you can from whatever is cheap that week. I also agree that the lack of meat is not very appealing either. We have tried to drastically cut down on red meat, but I am still able to make pork chops, pot roast, small hams and turkey breasts on my budget. I think the reason this article insulted some people is that it makes allrecipes seem like they don't understand the gravity of a lot of families' situations, and how hard Americans really are struggling to not only put food on the table, but for it to be fairly decent food too. Just my two cents though.
