Live below the Line day 2
I'm very grateful for quite a few things this week!
1.) The vege markets in Wellington!!
2.) The 1/2 price sale on lentils at Spice Emporium in Kilbirnie
3.) A great team to share in this challenge with
4.) But mostly I'm grateful for the generous donations from around the country (and the world) that have come in for the team!
It turns out that in our part of the world is possible to eat a balanced meal on $2.85 for a day but it's definitely not easy. While I'm only in this for 5 days, it's a small window into a world where portions are smaller with the saying "once it's gone, it's gone" taking on a whole new meaning. In that world, a spontaneous coffee, chocolate or ice cream isn't an option.
Quite a lot of planning and calculating that has gone into this week to come out with a meal plan that definitely seemed inspiring on Monday but I think that may no longer be the case by the time I get to Friday....
Thank you again to all of the people who have donated towards the team! Planning is well underway for the lentilicous fundraising meal coming up on Thursday!

I'm going to be living on a food budget of $2.85 per day for 5 days! It will be difficult but I'm in it with an awesome team and hoping to raise some money for this great cause at the same time.
Thank you to my Sponsors
