    High five for cheap and delicious! The best part is when it’s so easy to put together. Ah, a college girl’s dream.

    Jeez, I’m a California girl… I can handle bears and sharks, but i can’t fathom seeing an alligator outside of the zoo.

    ahhhhh alligators scare the mess out of me!!! Probably because I have very little experience with them though, haha just an alligator farm and a trip through the swamp on one of those boats with the huge fan on the back. I don’t think I’ve ever just come across one when I’ve been in FL

    Yikes! I can’t imagine hearing an alligator, let alone seeing one! I guess it’s not as bad since you’re somewhat used to it.
    Those burgers look super simple and very creative!

    Wow, lentils and beets, huh? I never would have thought of it, but they look delicious!

    That must have made for a scary experience! I’m up in Canada so obviously no gator experiences, but I think just seeing one would make me freak the eff out, let alone if I had my dog with me.

    Woah-gators are totally out of my element. Rattle snakes, bears, yes I can handle those. But, gators.Yikes. I need to try some type of homemade veggie burger. The recipes look easy, I just haven’t done it yet.

    I had never seen beets on a burger until I went to Australia. They put big ol slices on their burgers. Messy but delicious!*

    As a total cheapskate, this challenge is the definitely most interesting thing I’ve ever seen on your blog (been a loyal reader for 2+ years, also love the race recaps & Orlando recommendations)! I am always excited to see what the next recipe is & how much it costs. My husband wanted to know how you’ve changed your purchasing habits when it comes to organics. Also – are you allowed to buy food @ farmer’s markets (probably cheaper than Publix) or restricted to places that accept food stamps? Great challenge šŸ™‚

      Yes, we’re allowed to buy from Farmer’s Markets and, in fact, I’ve actually seen a few other challengers take advantage of the Farmer’s Markets in their areas. I’ve stuck with my organic yogurt through this challenge, but did not purchase organic meat as I usually do. All the vegetables and frui purchases were conventional, but I usually stick with conventional fruit and veggies anyways.

    Have you ever watched Depression Meals with Clara? It’s a fascinating YouTube series and she has an episode about lentils: http://www.youtube.com/embed/UXpouL9Q1iY
