Feel like it's important to point out this dollar ninty isn't just for food but for everything else too. No going to lie I spend about that sometimes less on food for a day.

paige snook says:

i think zucchini is gross, but maybe a soup with potato can change my views!

Girl Wonder66 says:

Can you freeze the patties and soup?

Sanja Amazo says:

This bread is not healthy

Michelle A says:

please please make more plant based cheap meals like this!!!!!!!! my kids love this!!

I hate snakeu says:

Did you really do a yin and yang with the salt and pepper

Amy Susan says:

Nice soup especially if you don’t food process it too.

Paxton Ghandi says:

Thank you so much for this video! The bread and soup in particular look delicious! I would like to point out, though, that people living in extreme poverty may be able to make bread but are rarely if ever going to have a food processor, much less a high power blender! Counting the blender as an investment made over a full year, i'm rather sure that puts you above the $1.90. honestly, i think this challenge is extremely problematic and, i worry, potentially even counterproductive to the cause of awareness about what extreme poverty really is, and that is definitely not your fault, as you didn't make the campaign–anyway these recipes look delicious and deliciously affordable, so thank you!

0:08 you should tell that to the Kardashian’s

How much protein in a day of meals?

7saany says:

when you say 1.90 a day, this would be for a week or a month? i have a hard time not shopping so often for groceries

7saany says:

You truly are amazing!

Creating Ariana says:

While with a lot of. Savvy shopping you could get food for these prices but you could afford some of the equipment. Growing up my family went through a period of time when a max daily budget was $5 for four people plus anything else we needed. But in particular were out of the question unless they were on clearance. We ended up having to visit a local food bank which was a huge blessing. I know this video is old but if you can help a local food bank you should. <3

fdlseeker says:

I have to live on $2 a day for food it's not easy but I now found your ideas and some other ideas for help. Thank you so much!

Kat G says:

I dont know where you live, but i could not get any of those items for $1.90. I live in Connecticut. One zucchini is $1.99. I wish i could shop where you do.

Big Money's Life says:

Can I just say, I love how Alyssia made a yin-yang with the salt and pepper with the tomato thing…… I can't spell it, nor pronounce it LOL.

Janelle Reloj says:

that's cheap ingredients but low income people might not have a food processor or oven. this might be a good video for people who actually have these tools and are cutting on budget. i would appreciate if your next video would be recipes for charcoal pots or stoves 😉

the recipes look delicious. i might make the bread 🙂
