I found this link to budget meals. I generally like Home Tips World. I see a lot of their stuff on facebook. I have not gone through all of the meals, but some look promising.

The $300 - month one, week 4, day 5
In the last week of month one. I've already admitted that we went $17 over budget, but it didn't have to be that way. I am starting to feel like we over bought on some of the produce items. It's actually not easy using them all up in a week. I still have butternut squash from two weeks ago and zucchini from last week. On Saturday I will adjust my veggie spending accordingly. I will need more peppers because I didn't buy any this week. Learning to USE everything I buy has been more of a battle than I thought. Less waste = healthier meals and more $$ in my pocket. Next month I am going to focus on some planning. I'm still bad at that. I'm also going to get a Costco membership and see if I can cut our cheese bill down. We go through a lot of cheese. By we I mean my kid & husband. I have issues with cheese, so I buy shredded to keep myself from devouring it. The kid & hubbie like to have cheese on everything. We saw a sign that said "The secret ingredient is always cheese" and that pretty much sums up their way of think. :-)
