Economy-Inspired Menu Changes

In light of all the financial and economic news, I've made a unilateral decision to slowly change my home menus. Hubby and son are not happy about this at all. They want their ribeyes, pork chops, and the rest of the carnivore food festival that has become part of my cooking style, albeit not a very healthy one. Expensive cuts of meat will be the exception, not the rule. Does anyone have ideas on how to downsize the meal budget without resorting to beans, tofu and (aaaargh) ground meat? If I can "sneak" some healthy stuff into a traditional meatatarian menu, I will be indebted for life. All ideas are welcome!
