New Giveaway/Sweepstakes!

Are you looking for great ideas to help stretch your food budget? This eBook is for you!

Recently I had the pleasure of previewing a new eBook by April Lewis Patel of An Apple a Day Wisdom. When she emailed with a description of this book I knew it would be right up my alley and something Real Food for Less Money readers would love.

April is all about stretching her food dollars and making something spectacular out of nothing. As a single mom she states “my budget dictates almost everything in my home.” I’m sure many of us can relate to this whether single parents or not.

April’s eBook is Don’t Compost It, Cook It: How to Make the Most out of Nothing in the Kitchen.

If you’ve spent much time here you know I’m all about stretching things to get the most bang for your food buck. The ideas that April shares are great and really show her thrifty side plus just what a person can do with a little ingenuity. This eBook is available at the perfect time with CSA’s revving up everyone needs some great ideas for making the most of the available produce and stretching that produce is always helpful.

This 43 page eBook gives not just great recipes, tips and ideas for stretching your CSA vegetables but also tips on stretching proteins and even making yummy snacks.


April has generously offered a free copy of her eBook to Real Food for Less Money readers.

Note: While April’s book does share many organic produce recipes and is a wonderful resource she does list a couple of ingredients that do not follow the Weston A. Price Dietary Guidelines. I do not find this to be a big deal and would just substitute WAPF style ingredients. I still recommend this book for all of the great concepts and ideas.
