Some friends of mine are doing a 7-month experiment–Getting By With Less. Each month they are focusing on a different area of life to simplify, based on Jen Hatmaker’s book, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess. August was media; September will be food.
One person–my wife–will be experimenting with the food that her students had available before joining her classroom. She chose four of the countries of origin, and is only going to eat what is readily available to economically challenged people in those countries (in every country, some people dine while others barely make it). Here is her chart for the month:
