These are really great suggestions. My nervousness is turning into excited anticipation! I love to cook, don't consume milk or much meat and don't mind planning ahead. I usually grind my own peanut butter at Sprouts (used to be Sunflower) and couple it with a high-protein bread from Trader Joes which gives me lunch for the week. I could do the pasta thing for a couple of dinners. Bulk grains, beans, brown rice and frozen berries and veggies are all right up my alley. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Human Bean, Riorican, Adam et al.
SNAP Challenge is next week already! I am beginning to get nervous. I live on a student's budget anyway and thought doing this challenge would be pretty easy. I mean hey, I love peanut butter. But I also love organic fruits and veggies and looking at what those items cost and what percentage of my daily diet they make up is leading me to reassess my approach to this challenge. I grew up on the poor side. Being one of three kids raised by a single working mom we ate a lot of processed food. As a result, I developed some fairly serious health problems in my early 20's about 10 years of dietary adjustment and adding lots of exercise has gotten me back to good health. I am not looking forward to cutting out the good stuff and substituting with cheaper processed food just because I know how badly I will feel after eating it. So I am trying to figure out how to eat healthy and cheap. If anyone out there has some good, practical suggestions please do help me out!
