You can cook ground beef in almost anything.
I’ve been surviving my first month-and-a-half of 2nd year at Langara Journalism with absolutely no money and a seriously dwindling stock of non-perishable food.
Receipt of mailed student loan certificates has been delayed across Canada for over a month. I hope to investigate the issue over the course of this series.
So while I look for answers, I’m gonna tell you how to spend your last $50 on groceries, and how to lie, cheat, steal and use the random crap in your kitchen cupboards to get you through the next 30 days. They’re cheap-to-free and will barely keep you alive!
Since you and I are too poor to give any thought to the nutritional content of our scraped-together meals, comedian and fitness nut Amy Wilding, along with her trainer Jen Olson, will be providing commentary and helping us improve our shopping and eating habits after reviewing my ugly concoctions.
“Hi! I’m Amy Lucille Wilding, a stand-up comedian, improviser and writer. I am also a self-proclaimed health nut addicted to working out. Over the last year I have rediscovered health and fitness, making me a buff force to be reckoned with! I have lost over 25 lbs and 14 inches all over my sculpted body. You can learn how I do it – the secrets to my success, including my meal plans and workouts. My humorous accounts on getting in shape and what not to eat and the little it leaves you allowed to eat will have you rolling on the floor as you pound back the salad I just taught you how to make and on a budget too. My good friend and personal trainer Jen Olson will also help guide you along. Also very fit and funny, she is one of the driving forces behind my complete transformation in less than a year! My recipes will get you started and her workouts are the ‘dessert’! Enjoy.”
