It's definitely possible to fix the food budget. The problem is I don't know what to cook. I'm pretty tired at the end of the day, and don't usually have the energy to cook, hence the convenience foods, hence the big grocery budget.

What do you cook during the week?

I don't cook during the week, period.
I cook on the weekend for the whole week, planning ahead for a couplefew meals out if I want them.

A long time ago, I figured out that if I spend about 2-3 hours hands-on shopping and cooking on the weekend, I could get healthy dinner into my belly faster than I could go through a drive through. It works.
