Eat Vegan on $4 a Day
A Game Plan for the Budget-Conscious Cook
Eating well doesn’t have to break the bank! Not only can a plant-based diet be good for your health, it can also be easy on your pocketbook.
Forgo expensive processed foods and get the most flavor out of delicious, high-quality, readily available ingredients. Ellen Jaffe Jones has scoured the shelves of popular supermarkets and big-box stores and calculated how to eat three nutritious, delicious, satisfying meals for no more than $4 a day per person—that’s less than an average meal at a fast-food outlet!
Eat Vegan on $4 a Day includes tips for how to adapt your favorite recipes, cook with beans and grains, and use bulk buying to reap big savings. A week’s worth of menus shows how easy it is to combine almost one hundred of Ellen’s favorite money-saving recipes and eat with pleasure, spending only a few dollars per person each day. Ellen explains the hidden food-industry politics behind grocery store pricing and product placement, and teaches us how to become informed, savvy consumers. Join Ellen in celebrating a positive relationship with food, putting joy back into cooking, and never worrying again about your food budget!
