Day Eleven

When I first had the idea for this dollar a day project, I thought that I was the first one to come up with this brilliant plan, but of course, it had been done before. I've found several blogs of others who have attempted the same thing. They've done it for various reasons, but a constant theme among them all is that their dollar a day experience changed the way they think about food.

There are a couple of teachers who did this a couple of years ago and they have just written a book about it. They have a similar outlook as Ryan and I and I have enjoyed perusing their blog. You can check them out at http://www.dollaradaybook.com/.

Here are a couple of articles about a North Carolina woman who wanted to prove that you could eat healthily on a dollar a day: http://www.walletpop.com/2009/02/26/how-to-eat-decently-on-a-dollar-a-day/ and http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=7062440&page=1

Here's another gentleman who ate for $30 for a month:http://hungryforamonth.blogspot.com/2006_11_01_hungryforamonth_archive.html

Our daily total came to $1.94.

We added some steel cut oats with a few raisins for breakfast which was a real treat and we had lentils with our rice for lunch. Dinner was brown rice as usual...it's amazing how good it can taste!
