See the One Dollar Diet Project (http://onedollardietproject.wordpress.com 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.
