IHE Grad's "One Dollar Diet" Project Makes the New York Times

In September 2008, IHE M.Ed. graduate, Christopher Greenslate, and his partner Kerri Leonard (both social studies teachers) embarked upon an experiment to try to eat for 30 days on only $1/day each. They documented their journey on their One Dollar Diet Project blog, and now their efforts have been published in the New York Times. "Money is Tight, and Junk Food Beckons" describes their experiences and talks about the difficulties of eating cheaply AND healthfully. And Tara Parker-Pope (who wrote the article) also mentioned them in her blog.

Christopher and Kerri learned so much from their experiment that they have plans to write a book about how much it really costs to eat healthy in America.

Christopher wrote a brief essay about his experience, which we'll be publishing in the November edition of our Humane Edge E-News (out soon).
