I’m not in the cooking business. I didn’t intend to write a book or to start a “project.” But, once I learned what I did about spending just $2 a day for food and started mentioning it to people, they wanted me to share more about how it works.
My masters degree is in Human Behavior, and I have certifications and experience with several behavioral and performance methods. What that means is that I have studied what causes people do what they do.
I am a curious, outside-the-box person by nature. I have personally leaned toward eating healthy foods that are delicious and nutritious. I already had studied nutrition and health ideas for my own use. Yet, with the world in turmoil, I started experiencing food cravings and turned more to food for comfort. Simultaneously, I decided to examine my own consumerism and to develop alternative ways of looking at spending . . . and saving.
As a nation, we are sold foods and ways of eating that are not in our best interest. On top of that, the culture encourages us to eat “fast, cheap and easy.” At what price? Both with our money and our health, we have paid dearly. With the economic downturn, we need to pay close attention to our health – and our budgets. Yet people struggle to cut back on food spending.
So, here I am, working on this $2 a Day Gourmet project. It’s about your money . . . and your life.
The author of the Two Dollar a Day Gourmet, Barbara Loraine, has has found that all it takes to eat delicious, nutritious dishes is $2 a day.
Loraine shares everything you need to know - and do - to save thousands of dollars each year., while eating incredible meals.
Whatever you do with the money you save, you'll be eating well along the way, with the Two Dollar a Day Gourmet.
