Oh almighty /ck/,
I seek your guidance and vast knowledge.
I am a student. I'm broke, I can't find job.
My knowledge about nutrition is below average.
What do I eat, or what do I cook, so it is cheap and quite healthy?
What low budget ingredients will keep me alive?
I try to eat a lot of potatoes or frozen veggies, but it just gets boring. I try not to buy meat ( I'm not vegan, I'm just broke).
Tl;Dr : how do I survive on low budget?
How low of a budget are we talking about here? If it's like, 20 bucks a week for food you can easily afford cheaper meat. If we're talking like 10 bucks that's more tricky.
Anyway buy a lot of:
Then buy some dried spices, cooking oil and salt. It shouldn't cost much and you can combine the above mentioned stuff in quite a number of ways.
buy in bulk
lots of frozen veggies
lots of whole grains
apples and bananas
basic nutrition: you need protein, carbohidrates and fiber the most, so balanced dishes like veggies for nutrients and fiber, chicken or meat for protein and whole grains for carbos are nice
Find some recipes that use your boring potatoes and frozen veggies, there are hundreds of ways to cook shit like that. Google should be your best friend.
