Good Food on a Tight Budget

I watched a movie about hunger a few days ago and I saw a report on kids, families really,  going hungry in America.  It caused me concern, “this is America after all,” I thought.

I got online and started to look around.  I found this wonderful pamphlet to help anyone who wants to reduce their food costs and eat in a healthier fashion. I like this pamphlet a lot.  So much so I started talking to my wife about it.

The pamphlet is put together by the Environmental Working Group in collaboration with Cooking Matters.  I don’t know much about any of these groups but I like what they are doing here, which is trying to help.

As a chef this is what I can do too, is try to help.  I plan to post recipes that fall within the budget put forth by EWG.  They will be delicious and, for the most part, good for you.  I say for the most part because I am sure there is someone, some group, out there who will disagree with me and that is fine.  I want to pass along as much knowledge as I can in an attempt to help people make informed decisions about their kitchen.

Mostly though, the goal is to provide recipes for low cost good eats.
