A NYC grad student working on food stamps for her thesis has released a free cookbook for those living on $4/day.
SIG NAL BOO OO OO OOOST
oooooh this is so nice!
I believe it’s important to eat well, even when you’re strapped for cash. It’s good for your health and energy! This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes, the ingredients of which are fairly inexpensive.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THIS WOMAN AS A FELLOW WARRIOR AND A FANTASTIC HUMAN BEING.
Boost so hard. Feeding yourself well is a challenge when you”ve got little income
I HAVE BEEN USING THIS COOKBOOK FOR MONTHS AND IT’S AMAZING 100/10 RECOMMENDING EVERYWHERE
(just to give you an idea, my food budget is 30 euro/week at most [about $38] and I have to maintain a healthy diet due to weird medication side-effects and yeah, basically this book is a lifesaver if you’re broke but need to watch what you’re eating)
Reblog to save a life. Because it’s easy to find food for $4/day, but most of it tends to be garden variety junkfood
look at this adorable barricade cake my mum made for my birthday!!
Really? Western Civilization is done.

…How did this somehow manage to ruin civilization? The purpose of this is accessibility, not laziness.
Let’s not forget when the same critique happened online with Whole Food’s packaged pre-peeled oranges:
So many folks jumped out of the woodwork to complain and berate anyone who dared to buy this product. But considering that pre-peeled oranges were a wonderfully necessary item for disabled people with limited mobility, it wasn’t long before lots of disability activists opened up the conversation in order to let us know just how harmful it was to pull these products off the shelf.
There are people out there who can’t split an avacado and remove the nut. The requirements for doing that are much steeper than many of us seem to realize: You need to have significant hand dexterity, access to a sharp knife, a fair amount of arm strength, and enough steadiness to stop you from cutting yourself. Not everyone can do that. For those folks, being able to buy a pre-cut avocado makes a big difference.
So I refuse to accept that accessible foods like this are somehow being about the downfall of civilization. If anything, their existence is starting to demonstrate our willingness to provide for everyone, and not just the privileged few. Is it a perfect solution? Of course not, especially in terms of the packaging. But it’s still a step in the right direction.
