On the social media site Reddit, Chef Gordon Ramsay held an “AMA”, or Ask Me Anything, in which any user can ask questions. One user asked “Do you have any food recommendations for a college student on a budget?” Chef Ramsay responded “I would recommend that you get adventurous with pulses - chickpeas, beans, lentils. And you know, cooking these is incredible.” He also added “You don't need expensive proteins.” This sparked a conversation about the benefits of Mexican and Indian cuisine - Food rich in nutritional value and flavour available for low cost.
