"He who knows what sweets and virtues are
in the ground, the waters, the plants, the
heavens, and how to come at these
enchantments, is the rich and royal man."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What the World Eats in a Week:

A Dollar A Day! $1/person/day

A Dollar A Day!  $1/person/day
We were blown away by all the Coke and other multi-national labels in the hungry planet video clip above that seemed to permeate the tables and kitchens all over the world! It would appear us Earthlings can't live without our sugar water (or make that high fructose corn syrup water). Our backdrop is the only Pepsi you'll see in this month's photos. Aleli has nicknamed this old half of a tin sign, " Food Shortage".

Feed A Cold, Starve A Blog!

As you all may have noticed, it's been pretty quite around here. The experiment is going full steam ahead, we're all eating well and things are looking financially solid (check out our cash pot on the side bar)! However, the blog itself has been on the back burner a bit while Mama Jolicoeur recovers from her cold. James has taken care of everything in the meanwhile ( double duty: work, kids and cooking up a storm! ). Aleli is on the mend though so life will be coming back into balance soon...... stay tuned.

Amongst the living again, Aleli brews up....... what else?..... oatmeal for breakfast! She basks in the morning sun and breathes deep the healing steam that swirled from our daily gruel.

Julian signs the word "more" for his morning porridge refill. Smart baby! A "please sir, may I have some more" moment if ever we saw one!

Beans and rice dinner by candlelight.............. not exactly romantic, but very economical and tasty!

Thought for the day:

Our meals would be quite limited were it not for all the community gardens available to us. It's time to change the landscape of this country a bit we think. Find out more about community gardens, how to plan one and where to find them at http://www.communitygarden.org/
