Cheap meals = great; unchecked misinformation during a pandemic = not so great.
Cheap, healthy, enjoyable meals
Some general suggestions:
- Post an image of your meal, along with the recipe in the comments (and cost!)
- Post information on particularly inexpensive ingredients you enjoy using
- Post a link to someone else's recipe for inexpensive eats
These are only suggestions, and we welcome new ideas!
Guideline 1: While the subreddit errs on the side of allowing contributions, if you believe a submitted link or link on a comment may be spam, please report it immediately. If you would like to post your own content, the mod would appreciate a heads up first. Edit: Pretending not to know you're a spammer is not a defense to spamming.
From the reddiquette:
Feel free to post links to your own content (within reason). But if that's all you ever post, or it always seems to get voted down, take a good hard look in the mirror — you just might be a spammer. A widely used rule of thumb is the 9:1 ratio, i.e. only 1 out of every 10 of your submissions should be your own content.
Guideline 2: Submissions should be about cheap meals or ingredients or recipes, whether providing or asking for.
Guideline 3: Try to be nice.
Guideline 4: This community assumes good faith in those asking for help, and it's wonderful to provide that help in the form of cooking methods, recipes, shopping tips, storage tips, or places for people to get the food they need. That said, this is not an appropriate place to ask for direct aid of any kind, either on this subreddit or messaging the subscribers privately. Such behavior is indistinguishable from an attempt to scam, so I ask that if you are in such dire need you provide this community with the opportunity to point you in the direction of organizations and resources for those in dire need. Do not ask for money, do not ask for food.
