Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wildly Affordable Organic: Eat Fabulous Food, Get Healthy, and Save the Planet--All on $5 a Day or Less (Paperback)I live in the same city as the author, and have followed her work ever since she was featured in the local paper. Previously she had e-books which covered much of this same material. However, I was excited to see she was finally publishing. Reading about how the project evolved was fun -- it was not easy at first but she figured it all out and passes it on to us. She lists what brands to buy, and how to organize your cooking to minimize time in the kitchen.
If you are a vegetarian who likes beans, this is a great book. She has adaptations for vegans. If you want to learn to make no knead bread, this is a great book. My husband liked it the first time I made it and he is a meat eating man who has never liked my bread before. Even I did not like my bread before.
The book is hugely practical, and rest assured, you really can do it for $5/per day/per person. The author regularly shops the local stores to see what the current pricing is. You can do it for less if you go non organic.
In posts on her web site, Linda talks about buying all the equipment needed for cooking (basics: pans, knives, etc) for less than $100. I would like to see Amazon package the collection plus the book for persons starting out in their first home. Page 55 lists the essentials.

If you don't have utensils and tools consider garage sales, estate sales, Goodwill, resale shops and so forth. Good stuff for ten cents on the dollar!
Oh the wonders of being deliberately POOR! You can get it down to very little and be FREE!.

Neverthless, THAT is a COOL idea. We could give a GRAND gift to someone if AMAZON packages the "How To" with the "What With" kitchen tools. Yayyyy. A great idea. Donna Gray-Davis
