Ful medames (pinto beans, garlic, cumin, chili pepper flakes), shepherd's salad (tomato, cucumber, onion in lemon vinaigrette), an egg, pita, mint tea, coffee. DTWG HQ, Seattle, WA. 6/24/2017
We estimate the cost of this meal at $3.25 of our daily $8 budget. Without the tea and coffee, the meal would cost around $2.53. Clearly tea and coffee are luxuries we cannot afford on a SNAP budget. Lemons and tomatoes have to be conserved at their cost, as well. We went overboard on them by having a single Roma tomato between us, and less than half of a lemon. We just cannot find fava beans in our neighborhood, and people with children likely do not have the time to shop all around the city, so we substituted another cheap bean. We spent two hours shopping at three stores to find the best prices. We have more to do, and the farmers market on Sunday.
