OK so I don't know how "poor" you mean but basically i spend $100 every two weeks for food (that is for me, hubby and my 4 year old) We don't hardly eat out so that saves alot. We usually eat lots of Mexican food and we use the soy "meats" the one we use is "the better ground" we also get veggie burgers, eat PB&J etc etc (I just posted earlier about the foods we eat.) Anyhow there is also soyrizo that we really like (and that and the ground can be split into two meals) we usually have like veggies over rice or pasta as well. I have made meatless meatball sandwiches too.....with the frozen meatlessballs and a little baguette and some marinara YUMMY. Also we love veggie quiche too Smiley
This is one of my fave recipes though...

Veggie lasagna

no boil noodles
marinara sauce
can of mixed veggies
can of read beans

you just start out in a casserole with some sauce and put down the noodles and then just layer the ingredients one by one over and over till you reach the top. Finish off with a noodle and sauce (you can add some more cheese on the top if you wish)

Just cook it to the noodle instructions and enjoy!...makes great leftovers too Smiley

But even though you are "poor" don't fear it can be done Smiley....and we only shop at Trader Joe's too...the key is no prepackaged or convenience foods

Some of trader Joes items are a lot cheaper (eggs, butter, avacados, tortillas come to mind) then the other grocery stores near me.  I shop there for ~ 50% of my items, minus heavy stuff like flour and gallon jugs of vinegar since I live a bliock from another large grocery store.

Im a fan of sweets, so every week Ill make a crumble or crisp of sorts as its cheap and can be done not too unhealthilly.  It's also really easy to make tortillas, pizza dough, and bread/rolls dependign on the time you have to cook. 

For snacks Ill also make bean sprouts (with lentils), trail mixes with bulk food items, couscous.  Couscous is also dead cheap depending how you buy it.
