I am living overseas on a very, very tight budget. Fortunately, staples such as beans and whole grains are fairly cheap here. Most vegetables are cheaper than they would be in my home country. By following a whole foods, plant based diet, I can eat in a healthy way and do so fairly cheaply. I love to cook, but sometimes get in a rut and don't feel creative. I hope on this team we can encourage each other!
No added sugar. No Snacks, No Seconds, except (Sometimes) on days that start with S.
I hope you will find that here. I just took over the group recently and saw that there had not been much activity in a long time. That might be why the former owner left it. I'm trying to liven it up but of course it takes group participation. If you have any ideas or contributions, just peruse the boards and jump right in! I've got to figure out my settings for the group because I haven't received any notifications of the latest posts.

Extremely low income & I don't feel it's addressed very often; although we do strive to eat very well within these constraints (money & store prices) ... feeling great within this current life path; why, because family is most important.
My husband is the only one working right now, so we don't have much money to feed ourselves and our 3 year old, and every other weekend my 5 year old. I have to do what I can to make things as cheap as possible.
I've been diagnosed with diabetes six months ago. Between medical bills and glucose meter test strips i've got a huge hole in my wallet. Plus food isn't exactly cheap in Japan, or at least fruit isn't.
