http://www.leannebrown.ca/cookbooks/ (There is a free download for eating/cooking on $4 a day!)

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2014/08/01/337141837/cheap-eats-cookbook-shows-how-to-eat-well-on-a-food-stamp-budget (Great article, full of good references and resources)

And my personal favorite:


Happy eating and happy saving!

EDIT: Sista Girl is not necessarily HEALTHY, but cheap and entertaining.
