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.
