As a new retiree, I have really CUT DOWN on my exorbitant trips to restaurants and Whole Foods, et al. (I'm not complaining about WF....I love it. All the good things I need are still there.)
Anyway, I just found this wonderful website. Check it out. (I don't like it that they're asking for donations, but perhaps they need them...and maybe some day I'll contribute.)
I will always be grateful to my friend Sonia, who taught me how to cook rice & beans and survive on them. She also turned me on to cooking kale and other deep green leafy veg and making my own garlic salt. What a gift! One doesn't need a whole pile of expensive food to survive. Thanks, Sonia, wherever you are.
