Eating Well With No $$$

January 11, 2006

{Hillbilly Housewife } – “The focus here is on low-cost, home-cooking from scratch. The recipes are all tested in a real kitchen with hungry children, stalking cats, begging puppies and a playful husband underfoot. The ingredients are affordable and readily available in most areas.

Many of us are feeling the squeeze at the supermarket these day, and all of us are feeling it at the gas pump. The government continues to deny inflation, but I see the results of it in my grocery bill and my gas tank. The official USDA cost of food has risen to $500 a month for a family of 4 on the Thrifty Plan! As most of us tighten our belts, we may be wondering how to juggle expenses that only seem to rise. “

I looked around the site and it seems like a great source of info for people who don’t have a lot of money for food either because of frugality or financial situation. I think everyone needs to know the basis of cooking, mainly so you can live better and cheaper in times of need.

Instead of eating, WIC-approved, box meals, this site give you a basis for cooking up a healthy meal, along with the shopping list, and gives you the stats about the meal as well. No carb-heavy meals, but enough to live off of.

Good little site….
