From the editor: While Leanne Brown was working on her master's degree in food studies at NYU, she decided to create a cookbook as her final project. The goal was to show others how to cook on a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) budget of $4 a day.
After the free downloadable PDF of her book, Good and Cheap went viral, Leanne decided to create a Kickstarter campaign to fund a print version. She raised $144,681 (well beyond her initial $10,000 goal) from 5,636 supporters, making it the #1 cookbook ever on Kickstarter. (And the 2nd print edition is a New York Times best-seller.)
Below are 5 recipes that total to $4 (actually, $3.95) per serving, to show you that eating well can be simple and affordable.
Breakfast: Pumpkin Oatmeal
