Eat well on $4.00

Can you really make a great meal with just four dollars? Leanne Brown seems to think so. She says kitchen skills, not budget is the key to great food.  She gives us tips and talking points on to eat well and cheap.

Tips & Talking Points:

1.         Today, 46 million people are living on a food budget of about $4 a day so Good and Cheap is a resource to make life easier for people who have to face that reality. It's also a resource for countless others on tight budgets, such as students, seniors on a fixed income, recent college grads, and young families.

2.         Buy versatile foods (such as flour, canned tomatoes, or garlic) that can be used in multiple meals.

3.         Buy in bulk buying larger amounts of one item can usually bring down the price per unit. For example, buckets of plain yogurt are the best value for your money. If you start with plain yogurt, you can make your own favorite flavors in your own kitchen, where you know exactly what's going into it.

4.         Get creative with wilted vegetables. Although wilted veggies might not remain fit for a salad, they'll still be wonderful in any dish that called for sautéed, grated, or baked vegetables. They can also be used in broth.

5.         Start building a pantry. If possible, reserve part of your budget to buy one or two semi-expensive pantry items each week or month. Things like olive oil, soy sauce, and spices are pricey at first, but if you use just a little with each recipe, they go a long way.

Leanne Brown has written a cook book, “Good and Cheap: Eat well on $4/day.” is a cookbook like no other, demonstrating why kitchen skill, not budget, is the key to great food.
