Do you live in Poverty?


Recommended Posts

My daughter and I just had pancit, it's more like stir fry chicken with vegetables and a little noodles. We had soda for dessert plus a big, juicy orange for me and a cup of greek yogurt sprinkled with flaxseed and blueberry granola for my daughter. I'm sure it's less than $10 dollars for a tasty healthy meal and we can only eat half of the pancit. You can eat well, healthy and save when you cook. 


To save I usually buy when chicken and fish  are on sale. When Walmart or Albertsons has a sale for chicken and meat I buy in large quantities divide them  in sizes for  stir fry, stewing or for frying. I also buy  vegetables and fruits that are in season. We usually indulge on the weekends not minding calories or cost. We cook steaks, shrimps, crabs or for $20 you can go to the casino for buffet where they have oysters, prime rib, lobsters and crabs. For dessert they have the chocolate covered pineapple and strawberries that I love. Usually we go to sushi places and have green tea or taro ice creams. Once in a while we go to a nice restaurant and eat what we want.

I think there should be an addendum to the definition of poverty:  if you're overweight you're not in poverty.    Seriously, how could a 300 lb person be poor?  Downsize to a double cheeseburger for
