A new website, http://www.BalanceonaBudget.com, provides weekly menus of nutritionally balanced recipes with complete grocery lists for busy families who want a healthier diet, but don’t have time to do the necessary planning.

“Most people know they should be making healthier food choices, and want to,” says Karin Kelly, co-founder and former weight-loss counselor, “but they have neither the time nor nutritional knowledge to do so. Fast-food popularity is evidence of that.”

Balance on a Budget menu plans average less than 1200 calories per day at an approximate breakdown of 33% each protein, carbohydrate, and (mostly “good”) fat. Including nearly 100% of most recommended vitamins and minerals, these menus eliminate the risk of malnourishment associated with many diet plans.

“Meal planning makes me crazy!”, claims conceptualist and co-founder Kathleen Watkins who is a self-admittedly uninspired cook. “Once I realized how easy it was to follow this plan, I knew we had to make it available to other busy mom’s. We plan your meals so you can plan your life!”

Annie H. of Redding, CA says, "This is great - I just started, but so far the recipes are yummy, and so balanced! I've always cooked at home a lot, but it's such a hassle to plan and make sure everything is balanced...Everything is easy to find and "whole" not processed - I like that a lot!".

For a $9.95 monthly fee (less than the cost of one take-out meal), subscribers get meal plans and recipes for three meals a day, seven days a week, and complete weekly grocery shopping lists. Meals average less than $2.00 per person, creating greater savings than the subscription cost.
