Yes, you can eat on SNAP allotment—but you don’t need to

A very nice cookbook you can download. The idea is tasteful, healthy meals on $4/day, although SNAP was never intended to be the full budget for food, but a supplement, it can be done.

Broccoli and Cheddar Empanadas (makes 12)


2 cups all purpose or whole wheat flour

½ cup cornmeal

½ tsp salt

½ cup butter

1 egg

1/2 cup cold water

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


8 cups broccoli, chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

½ tsp chili flakes

salt and pepper, to taste

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated

1 egg (for brushing)

See the website for instructions on preparations.
