Thrifty Food Plan Experience

USDA-paperback-250This eBook is an in-depth look at the 2 week Thrifty Food Plan Experience that my family did in March of 2012. 67 pages of thoughts, tips, and ideas plus a 2 week menu plan, over 40 recipes and links to many more.


This experience was based off of the USDA’s food cost guidelines. They offer 4 different food plan options with the Thrifty Plan being the lowest cost (also what SNAP benefits–formerly known as food stamps– are based off). Real food can definitely be enjoyed on this thrifty budget!

A short excerpt from Thrifty Food Plan Experience;

“This eBook is designed as a handbook and response to the USDA’s Recipes and Tips for Healthy, Thrifty Meals. While I very much appreciate the publication put out by the USDA I believe that an alternative offering real/whole/traditional foods is needed. The USDA’s guidelines have unfortunately left our nation in a state of dismal health. The Standard American Diet is truly SAD.
Dr. Weston A. Price discovered in the 1930’s that people following a diet based on their native foods enjoyed superior health, very few dental issues (Dr. Price was a dentist), joyful dispositions and a resistance to disease. Today’s modern societies do not enjoy the characteristics described by Dr. Price. Instead, we have many ailments that we ‘pop a pill’ to ‘cure’. Unfortunately, popping the pills doesn’t usually cure what ails us and often leads to new issues requiring additional pills. When does this vicious cycle end?
One thing that might help end this cycle is by returning to foods in their natural state: by learning many of the lessons Dr. Price discovered all those years ago. The saying “you are what you eat” is more than just a saying.


While Thrifty Food Plan Experience is not exactly a cookbook, I do share over 40 recipes.  Purple Chicken Stir-Fry is one of the recipes in this eBook.  You can preview the recipe here.   Another recipe that you can preview is Citrus Salmon over Wheat Pilaf. This is a delicious way to do salmon!  If you are not a wheat fan substitute rice or a different grain or serve over sauteed greens.
