OK here is a Challenge to our followers.
Take the SNAP Challenge, if you can handle it. This challenge is simple.
1. Starting Monday Sept 15th, you can only eat what you have purchased with the allowance afforded to those on the SNAP program. That allowance is $1.50 per meal, or $4.50 per day. You cannot purchase at Sam's or Costco or any large retailers that have a membership fee to join. Please let us know how it went. E-mail us with the specifics on how you were able, or not able, to accomplish the challenge. How did you feel knowing you could only spend $1.50 per meal, how did you feel during the challenge, could you tell a difference in your mood, or anything else you can share about the challenge.
