1.5 billion people eat on less than $1.50 each per day? Maybe so, but I doubt they’re buying their food in Washington D.C. I’m not saying $1.50 is a lot, but many countries have much, much lower costs of living than the U.S.

There was a period of time when my ex and I lived on a weekly grocery budget of $20 and not by choice. This included washing and cleaning supplies and cat food - but the cat loved mac and cheese. Thought about writing a cookbook containing 101 ways to fix bologna or all the things you can do with just a pound of hamburger. We were fortunate at the time to be living in Arizona and had ample orange and grapefruits fresh off the trees in our yard though which certainly helped.

One of the biggest problems with cooking for one or two is that it’s hard to buy items sized for so few, like cuts of meat or just one or two pork chops.
