I'm enjoying strawberry shortcake for dessert again and feeding my freezer with strawberry sauce to get me through January with a smile next year. Buying in bulk, eating with the seasons, and cooking ahead are all key skills in the Wildly Affordable Organic kitchen.

Why cook the Wildly Affordable Organic way?

Go green for $5 a day or less with mostly organic or sustainably raised ingredients. Or focus on cost to save even more! Either way, you'll probably be spending less than the food-stamp allowance for someone with no other means. We can afford to eat wonderful food that is good for our bodies and for our planet. Vote with your fork for a better world. (Don't forget to vote with your vote, too!)
