grocery budget and special needs diet

we live with my mom now, who is a diabetic, and when it was just us, i had our grocery budget down to about 300/month, give or take. we eat lots of basic stuff, rice, potatoes... lots of things she either cant have, or cant have much of, so i dont want to base my meals around that, so that she is eating properly, and i am NOT cooking two meals lol. i need recipe ideas that are not so starchy and also how much could i expect to spend. i generally shop at aldi, and will have to go there monthly, and fill in with fresh things weekly at stores closer to home. (when we moved the closest aldi is 20+miles away)

for budgeting purposes we can do about 400/month.
