Eating good food that’s both healthy and cheap seems to be an unattainable golden trifecta to most people. Student author Leanne Brown took up the challenge to find a way to eat well for $4 a day. The result is a a cookbook that you can download for free.
The book was inspired by the typical SNAP (read: food stamp) budget. While the program may vary from family to family, the budget is still a challenging guideline. The book includes recipes for soups, pastas, chicken, drinks, even cookies. There’s no magic recipe that makes lobster and steak cost $1, but the amount of meals that can be made on a super-tight budget is impressive. If nothing else, it can serve as a starting place for your budget-friendly meal planning.
