“A very spare and simple diet has commonly been recommended as most conducive to Health.  Aim at the happy mean-be Liberal without being Lavish, be Prudent without being Penurious.  Plent of Good Food, plainly but properly prepared, is a Feast for an Emperor.” ~  Dr. William Kitchiner, The Housekeeper’s Ledger

penurious adj. Unwilling to spend money; stingy. Yielding little; barren: a penurious land. Poverty-stricken; destitute.
