Not sure whether this goes here or in Frugal thread, but will try here.

Has anyone heard of Leanne Brown and her free online cookbook Good & Cheap?

Designed for SNAP particiapants living on a food budget of $4/day, there are some frugal, seasonal recipes that many of us might be interested in..for example, I want to try her eggplant, tomato and garlic pasta recipe.

the $4 a day is stretching the imagination and I taught an adult education on eating on a budget. That being said, it doesn't hurt to check these books out. The biggest problem; to eat healthy, on a budget takes time and devotion, too many living on food stamps don't have either.
Cliffee: most people struggling to make end meet are not about to depend on Vegan cooking. Most need to give up the frying pan and the processed foods for starters. They are not about to or ready for even vegetarian meals, muc less vegan and not all vegan food is cheap.

Hmmm, maybe some carnivores do eat vegan foods (I do, quite often)...but no vegans eat carnivore foods??

why would you eat vegan on any budget? A bullet is faster.

Cheap and healthy doesn't have to be vegan, but that's one good way to go. I'm a carnivore. Still, I grew up eating meat only about 1-2 times a week and I'm very flexible.

My first thought is rice and beans (or lentils), plus vegetables. Many of my childhood meals consisted of basmati rice, dal, and bhaji or another vegetable dish. I love those meals still. Basmati isn't really cheap here in Oregon, but some other kinds of rice are more reasonable and delicious, such as jasmine rice and "sushi rice". There's SO much you can do with beans/lentils and rice.

By the way, I don't like the common "lentils" sold in the USA that much. There's a big variety of lentils that I prefer, such as masoor dal, aka red lentils.

There are plenty of examples of bad vegetarian diets, and bad carnivore diets. The vegetarian vs carnivore isn't the issue. If you eat a lot of burgers and ribs all the time (just for example), and very little veges, you're going to be in bad shape some time.

For a healthy and cheap diet, there isn't a whole lot of room for low-quality meat. Tenderloin steaks are tasty and good for you if eaten once in a while, but expensive. By the way a filet mignon, medium-rare, is another of my favorite things.

Thinking that one of the cheaper animal proteins must be the egg? And it can be mixed with veggies, rice, lentils, beans, bulghar, pasta to make a nutritious but low-cost meal.

One of our go-to cheap meals made in a hurry is eggs cooked mixed with some black beans or pinto beans and salsa and eaten in a whole wheat tortilla. Fresh chopped tomato, avocado, lettuce or spinach can be added if desired.

And it can serve as a breakfast, lunch or dinner.
