Nearly 40 million people today depend on food stamps (formally, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP). The average benefit? Around $133 a month, or about $4 a day for food. Many of the rest of us struggle with food prices, too. So who doesn’t want ideas for cheap but tasty meals? Clipping coupons and taking advantage of manager’s specials only go so far. What we really need are good, nutritious, and cheap meals to make for our families – meals they will actually eat and enjoy. That was the impetus behind “Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a Day,” by Leanne Brown.
