Can you eat healthy on $5 a day?--There are rumours, but is it really possible to eat all my meals and snacks for $5 a day, without resorting to baked beans on toast or two-minute noodles? “Absolutely,” says Kate Gudorf, spokesperson for the Dietitians Association of Australia. “I often hear people say that healthy foods are more expensive, but I think that’s a misconception. “It might take a bit more preparation and planning, but it is possible.”
A Whole New Challenge... The $25 a week challenge has morphed into a $50 per person a fortnight challenge. I have had quite a few comments saying that people would prefer a fortnightly shopping list as that is how Centrelink is paid.
