Welcome to the Challenge! This week, you'll be cooking part of your meals from scratch in just 20 minutes a day. Next week, you'll use those skills and more to cook all of your food from scratch.
Day 1, Week 1.
- Get any groceries you need (plant-strong or classic)
- Set up your Stoup container if you don't have one
- Make Vinaigrette for use later in the week
- Make and enjoy dessert:
- Plant-Strong: Sweet-Sixteen Oatmeal-Raisin Bars
- Classic: Chocolate Pudding with banana slices
Every day, you'll enjoy delicious, healthy, and affordable food. How affordable? During the second week, the classic meals average just $5.33 a day per person and the plant-strong ones only $5.22, using prices gather this week here in Raleigh.
Food prices have gone up during the two years since I gather prices for Wildly Affordable Organic. But the real, seasonal food on these menus is still a bargain compared to processed food wrapped in packaging, stored in warehouses, and transported for thousands of miles. Good food is a bargain at the market and a bargain for your health and for the planet.
