Eating well doesn't have to cost a fortune. Here are some great recipes to eat well for $5/day.

Plant-Based on a Budget: How I Ate Well on $5 a Day

From Forks Over Knives

Day 1:
For my first day, I shopped at the local Mexican market.


Breakfast: Potato salad
Lunch: Black bean stew
Dinner: Ginger brown rice
Snack: Celery sticks

Day 1 Notes: 
1 lb. (2 cups) of dry black beans makes 6 cups when cooked (4 servings)
1 lb. (2 cups) of uncooked rice makes 7 cups when cooked (4 to 5 servings)

I cooked the whole package of beans all at once and froze about half of it (two servings) to save time and money. With the remaining three cups of cooked beans, I made the bean stew, which I ate today and will eat again tomorrow.
