“Good and Cheap” is a new resource that provides recipes and guidelines for those who have a tight budget. But this is food that anyone will love. The recipes make vegetables rather than meat the starring attraction.
The author, Leanne Brown, designed the recipes for the budget of people on the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. The recipes plan for meals on $4 per day. She created the book for her Master’s in Food Studies at New York University. After she posted a PDF online, it went viral, with almost 100,000 downloads in the first few weeks.
