Great thread!!!!!

I have been eating so poorly for so long. I'm a chef by trade and almost rarely eat at home and when I do it's a whole production with new recipes all the time.
I'm looking to create a regular menu, to control my Health.
Heavy drinking has left me feeling like pic
>>
>Carrots
It's a root vegetable that has a really good shelf life, and it can be added to a lot of different things.

>Chicken / Sausage
Some simple meat / protein that can be added to almost any dish. Can usually be found very cheap. These things can be used for things that eggs can't.
>>
>>7250007

>these things can be used for things that eggs can't

Eggs can be used for far more things than chicken or sausage though.

>inb4 sausage souffle or chicken meringue
>>
Poorfag here. This is my shopping list. I buy what I need to last me 1 week or so, and every weekend I go shopping. It's been working good for me so far

Get some flour, and make sure you have a supply of cooking oil. Later on, consider picking up a container of olive oil. It's got a lower smoking point than canola oil you use for cooking, but it's useful in making things like flour tortillas.

Flour can be used for making your own bread, which can save a hell of a lot of money over buying loaves of bread. Look into getting a bread machine when you can. You can just dump the ingredients in, press the button, and have a complete loaf of bread in 3-4 hours. Or you can use it to make dough that you can then use to make a couple of deep-dish pizzas if you have an oven and a cast-iron pan.

I just made pizzas with a cast-iron pan the other day for the first time, and holy crap, it was amazing. I used water instead of the beer the recipie called for, used cheddar cheese instead of mozarella, and only had spaghetti sauce available instead of actual pizza sauce, but the crust was magnificent and perfect.

Flour is one of those things that can last nearly forever, and can be used in an incredible number of things.

If you get things in a slightly larger package that will last you longer than a week, then you can save money in later weeks and use that savings to buy seasonings and ingredients to test out new recipies.

>i'm about to move on my own and was looking for this exact thing

Why don't you just buy the things you need instead of copying someone else's shopping list?
>>
>>7248341
>multiple starches
That's fucking gay.
>>
Also, consider getting some mixed frozen vegetables. Those are pretty easy to add to any meals, and having a variety of vegetable sources should help you get a more complete set of vitamins.

Try to eat a variety of different kinds of meals. This will hopefully prevent you from getting sick of any one thing, and will keep your cooking skills sharper than they would otherwise be, which is one way to help prevent you from falling into a rut of doing the exact same things all the time, which is never fun.

Absolute essentials

Vinegar?

Definitely flour, onion, and garlic. Maybe tomatoes?
>>
>>7248341
I would add a high-temp cooking oil, like peanut or canola.
>>
>>7250618

This is no more than 60 a month for me, so about 25-30 every two weeks. I don't buy meat really because I'll have it when I eat out. Pic related is why I buy cheese only, I like eggs though but they've been too expensive. I buy canned chickpeas too, so that's more than dried.

Also the top of that list is my usual breakfast-- bananas, seeds, berries, nuts. With the rest I make sandwiches or salads

I don't spend more than $50 at the store, but this includes toiletries and other miscellaneous household items, like soap or napkins. Food is probably $30-$40/week. My budget might be different than yours, but I get my easily with that much.

Typical shopping cart in the US:

Totino's
Totino's

Unless I were unemployed, I would start by removing potatoes, rice, and noodles.

I'd add flour, cornflour, milk, any red meat, any poultry meat but preferably chicken, and brandy.

Why are butter, salt, pepper, and olive oil lumped together like that?

>>
>>7254072

By fat content-- and I put the serving size that way to show how one slice is more filling than an egg. Where I live I the cheese is cheaper and I have other protein sources.

Here's another pic, Swiss on the left this time, like I said I'm just comparing nutritional content
