I just wanted to let you know that I spend $150-175/week on groceries for my family of four...that includes EVERYTHING (paper products, dog food etc...)......and we don't eat top ramen EVER
My point is that your $100 for 10 healthy dinners for 2 is definitely reasonable. Here are some things that I make on a regular basis:
Whole Wheat Pasta
Ground Turkey (1/2 lb is plenty!)
Sauce (somedays I make from scratch...others I just use the healthiest jar I can find!)
Ground Turkey w/ taco seasoning
Beans (black, kidney or pinto)
Low-fat cheese and/or fat-free sour cream
We like fat-free catalina dressing too!!
Kidney and Pinto beans
Tomato Sauce / Diced tomatoes
Eggs and potatoes:
My hubby and boys eat real eggs and red potatoes, I make a seperate pan of egg whites and sweet potato for me.
With Chicken, I either bake it or bbq and serve with salad, rice, etc...or cut it into strips for fajitas, chicken soup, stir-fry, etc....We tend to eat alot of one dish type stuff (i.e. casseroles) which I know may not be "ideal"...but it works for me...I find all kinds of creative ways to "healthify" things
I have a weekly shopping list that I keep and use pretty much everytime, adjusting things as needed.
