This is important enough to disrupt my media fast and lose a check mark over. It was triggered by the CEO of Panera taking the SNAP challenge and originally complaining about all the bad carbs. Haha the bread guy complaining about carbs. But he sure has a great point, as it is an obvious one. My challenge is to live as best as possible within the LE guidelines. So here it goes.
- Only to use one store as most SNAP recipients may not have transportation and may need to go by bus – so this week its Aldi Foods
- They may be busy working 2 jobs to make ends meet, but have time Sunday afternoons for the “Sunday Ritual”
- Sticking as close as possible to the LE guidelines to add protein and fruit/veggies to each meal. Extremely challenging though!
All items at home and the leftovers for the pantry or emergency snacks on the right.
Meal 1 – Oatmeal Bake with peanut butter and pear compote.
Meal 2 – Egg cups with carrots
Meal 3 – Pork ribs with cabbage and mashed potatoes
My challenge is starting tomorrow and I will record my weight, how I feel and will give more info on price and nutritional breakdown. If you are apt to feel free to join me to raise awareness on hunger and maybe even making this world a better place and maybe finding some great cheap and nutritious recipes.
