Posted Sep 28 2010 5:12pm
In today's difficult economy, one of the most challenging things to do is to
feed our family good, nutritious, chemical-free food for a reasonable price.
This need has inspired a video series called "Living Lean & Green; How To
Cook Healthy For $10 or Less".
Above you see the first video of the series which features Chef Ryan
Hutmacher, The Centered Chef of Centered Chef Food Studios , cooking with me in my front lawn
vegetable garden. Together, we are creating meals which cost a family of four
$10 or less to prepare and features organic vegetables I have grown myself.
Our goal is to show the everyday person that it is possible to grow your own
vegetables sustainably, then use these vegetables to feed a family of four on
the cheap utilizing Chef Ryan' Hutmacher's amazingly healthy recipes.
