The newest book to plop on my doorstep for review is Wildly Affordable Organic: Eat Fabulous Food, Get Healthy, and Save the Planet – All on $5 a Day or Less by Linda Watson. I remember when I first started buying more organic food way back when, it was definitely a shocker compared to prices for conventional food and produce.
I’ve acclimated now and shop at the farmers market for what’s in season and wouldn’t think of buying non-organic produce, especially anything listed on the Organic Dirty Dozen. Wildly Affordable Organic is helpful for those just starting out with shopping, cooking and eating tips and strategies, as well as seasonal menus and recipes.
The book begun as an experiment to eat well on a food stamp budget which I found quite interesting (that could have been a whole book in itself). The plans and menus are less interesting for me as I rarely follow them.
But I do like to try new recipes, not all of them are vegan though, some call for eggs and dairy. But in the back, there is a list of which recipes are vegan-friendly. I tried the Noodles in Spicy Peanut Sauce with Seasonal Vegetables – it’s quick and simple to make with easy to find ingredients.
To get you organized and onto the organic path, I’m giving away a copy of Wildly Affordable Organic.
