Cheap Eats: Cookbook Shows How To Eat Well On A Food Stamp Budget -  a cookbook full of recipes anyone could make on a budget of just $4 a day

"You choose what vegetables you want, so I used tomato and a green-striped crookneck squash, which was the cheapest I could find," says Sanders. "It is so, so good." Mahoney agrees.<br><br>
"My kids loved the recipe," she says.<br><br>
Mahoney cooks for her two children and herself, much like Mia Pickering, who lives in Seattle with her two teenagers. Sanders, Mahoney and Pickering have all been on SNAP for a number of years. They say Good and Cheap, which they discovered online, works better for them than anything else they've been able to find and that's important when what they can cook determines how well they and their families can eat.<br><br>
"Cooking is definitely more economical and healthier than buying premade foods," says Mahoney.<br><br>
Pickering thinks so, too. For her, it's easier to cook fresh than heat up frozen meals. It means she and her children throw less food away and exercise better portion control.<br><br>
"Many authors have tried hard to come up with cheap meals, but they taste so bad. Leanne is so gifted. It's just incredible," says Sanders.<br><br>
