SNAP Challenge Day 4

by | Sep 29, 2016

bridgette-caseyHello again, Bridget here. For lunch today, I had leftover taco salad from the night before, and thankfully I wasn’t as hungry by the end of the workday as I was yesterday.  My dinner was a tuna salad sandwich and bell pepper strips with fat free ranch dressing. Dinner was satisfying, but I miss having variety and high quality ingredients in my meals. Eating a tuna sandwich while your roommate pan fries a salmon fillet and fresh vegetables in front of you is mentally painful.

I cannot imagine what a SNAP recipient must feel whenever they see a commercial on TV for an expensive restaurant, or drive by someplace and smell the aroma of food they can’t possibly afford. This is possibly the most difficult challenge I have faced in a long time.
