See the One Dollar Diet Project ( on a couple who fed themselves on $1 a day for a month to raise money for a local non-profit.  Pretty sobering stuff! The two are keeping to a vegan diet, which is not surprising, given the relative bank-breaking cost of meat and other animal products.  Their breakfasts and lunches seem quite repetitive–oatmeal and PB&J’s, respectively.  During dinner, they are able to get a little more creative: bean, rice, and potato burritos, cheese-less pizza, polenta with marinara sauce, and homemade wheat gluten “steak” strips with rice and broccoli all have made appearances.  Popcorn or peanut butter are snacks.
