how many people have been so low on their budget that the only thing you possibly would be good for you was to make a dinner basically made of beans, like a 4 bean casserole like i did tonight.

When we are low on budget, our go to meal is eggs and bacon. Either on bread or toast. My DH would not eat a 4 bean casserole, so that is out of the question. A 4 bean casserole is good for you, all that fiber.

Thanks for the book suggestions.
Good cheap and healthy stuff:
Pb and j on wheat
Eggs and toast
Beans and rice
Baked potato bar (my kids still love this!)
Check your library for "Not Just Beans" cookbook and also the "More with Less". Both are great.
