If you’re hungry for ways to stretch your food dollars at the supermarket, you’re in luck. On today’s podcast, you’ll be eating well on just $4.00 a day. Why $4.00? That’s the amount provided by SNAP, the USDA’s food stamps program, and the inspiration behind Good And Cheap, written by Leanne Brown. From large families and seniors to college students, people across the country face food insecurity every day. Whether you want to save pennies on your weekly grocery bill or cut your food budget in a big way, my guest, Leanne Brown, makes saving money at the grocery store doable, delicious, and nutritious.
Leanne is a big proponent of cooking from scratch using real, wholesome, unprocessed foods. She says eating on a budget doesn’t mean you have to live on ramen noodles. The recipes in her book are inventive, creative, and mostly plant based, because meat is expensive. Good and Cheap is available for purchase, or you can head to Leanne’s website and download a copy (English or Spanish) for free. And if you do purchase a copy, a second copy will be donated to someone in need.
“If you cook things yourself from basic ingredients, it ends up being a lot cheaper.”
– Leanne Brown
