  1. You’re 16th now 🙂 You’ve got us all thinking and talking about poverty though, and I think that’s equally as important as raising money in the long term. Well done, you’re an inspiration.

  2. I think Katherine could be your LBL challenge sister. Similarly she likes whole foods scratch cooking.
    To see her blog go to greenthickies dotcom and look for
    Preparing to Live Below The Line: How I’m going to live below the poverty line for 5 days
    and then the ones that follow.
    (If you can edit this, please feel free to put in the actual link)
    She adapted her green smoothie recipe for the challenge and has a bean burger that people here might like. One other thing it looks like she is doing is using her passata as a salad dressing.
