Feeding my family of 5 with $100 for one week
Breakfast: Happy Herbivore's Apple Biscuits & fruit salad- i thought the biscuits were too bland but the chipmunks liked them (which is all that matters). If I make them again, I will probably add another apple and maybe some applesauce to add more flavor. Also, I used whole wheat regular flour instead of white wheat, so that may have affected the flavor.
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside. Core an apple and quarter. Add apple to a blender or food processor with a
splash of water and pulverize into the consistency of applesauce, adding a touch more water if necessary and set aside. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. (You can also add a little raw sugar or raisins for a sweeter biscuit, 1 tsp cinnamon or fresh rosemary for a savory biscuit here). Add applesauce 1/4 cup at a time until the batter is moist (wetter is better; you should use most of or all of the applesauce). Drop large spoonfuls on the cookie sheet and bake 10-13 minutes, or until firm to the touch and lightly golden on the bottom and edges.
Sandwich, homemade cooked applesauce, pretzels, cucumber slices
Dinner: Unsloppy Joes & Apple Slaw
4 cups white (or purple) cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, grated
2 scallions, chopped
1 apple, chopped
4 tablespoons of vegan mayo
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
Mix the cabbage, carrot, scallions, and apple together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix together mayo, lemon juice, pepper, salt and other desired seasoning.
Add to cabbage mixture and serve.
I didn't have any kaiser rolls, so I used sliced bread. If you use regular bread, make sure to lightly toast it to prevent the soggy taste.
Day #7 (the conclusion) will be posted tomorrow.
