Host Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian,  welcomes Ellen Jaffe Jones who is The Veg Coach. We’ll chat about her new book, Eat Vegan on 4 Dollars a Day. I’ll share some of my favorite budget conscious but oh-so-delicious recipes! Be sure to watch  Jazzy Vegetarian  on National Public Television. Ellen Jaffe Jones is a cooking instructor with The Cancer Project, a program of the prestigious Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. She spent eighteen years in TV news as an investigative reporter, morning anchor, and producer for network affiliates around the country, winning two regional Emmys, the National Press Club First-Place Award for Consumer Journalism, and United Press International’s First-Place Award for Investigative Reporting. As a result of her personal quest for better health, Ellen is a certified personal trainer and running coach. Her new book talks about how a plant-based diet can be good for your health while being easy on your budget! Discover how to give your shopping cart a makeover, learn how to forgo expensive processed foods and get the most flavor out of delicious, high-quality basic ingredients. Ellen Jaffe Jones has scoured the shelves of popular supermarkets and big-box stores and calculated exactly how it costs to eat healthfully and deliciously for $4 per person per day—less than an average meal at a fast food outlet. Each recipe is accompanied by the cost per serving. And from soups and salads to entrées and desserts, the flavors are as impressive as the savings.
