You have a $150 grocery budget to last you a month. You must keep it 90% organic.
What do you buy?
I spend maybe 30$ a week. I buy
1 gallon of water
5 organic yogurts
1 box organic oat flakes
1 bag organic veggie chips
1 bag organic banana chips
10 protein bars.
occasionally buy 6 pack diet coke.
forgot about the wheat bagels. get some whole wheat bagels. Use your yogurt like dippin sauce, its soooo good.
>hunting with a nugget
You're literally going to spook every dear on the mountain.
I do this.
Green beans/asparagus: Cheap, tastes good, easy to cook, good for you
Store brand organic rice: 2.50 per standard size bag. Bag will last you 10 days if you eat 1/2 cup per day.
Store brand oraganic black beans (uncooked): 1.50 per bag. Bag will last you 10 days eatting 1/2 cup per day.
Chicken thighs: bleh. cheap but gross, I generally go with beef instead.
Cheap beef (GMOs and shit but whatever): Whatever is under $5 per pound. Usually fattier cuts of meat which is nice. Chuck steak, round steak, ground beef, etc.
Please provide a link to research that proves organic food to be healthier than 'regular' food.
Pro-tip: don't bother. There is no difference except a higher price tag. Organic is fucking retarded.
Farm raised, grass fed cow at 3 bucks a lb, couple I know raises them, 50lbs of meat, under your bitch boy "organic" umbrella. Less than my usual intake but a pound and a half of meat per day would be fine.
Tofu every day, $2.46 - 10oz saturated
Drain it, freeze it, thaw it, drain it again. You can cube it, julienne it, scramble it. You can marinate it like a fucking sponge. If you don't freeze it, you get a totally different texture from it.
TVP (another soy product) $3.52 - 10oz dry
Has a long shelf life and requires brief hydration. It is used if you don't like tofu scrambles, it's texture is much beefier, yielding more resistance for your massive bite force. Makes a shitload of tacos, spaghetti, sloppy Moe's, etc... It marinates better than meat.
Seitan (vital wheat gluten) $6.29 - 22oz
This can be made using any wheat flour ever, too, but it involves a washing process. Just combine with water an knead into a hard dough, you can impregnate it with anything and cook it like a roast beef. High yield protein, but 'incomplete', supplement with legumes.
Beans are incredibly cheap and are command a great source of nutrition while being super versatile. My favorite are lentils, ($1.46/lb dry) You can make soups, sandwiches or just plain ass beans with them. Again 'incomplete', to be paired with grains (rice, wheat, etc...) I suggest bags of dried beans as they're cheaper than their canned counterparts, and have a better shelf life.
For a grain I'd suggest quinoa, which while fairly expensive is another very versatile food. It can be put anywhere rice is, but is more nutritionally sound than brown rice.
I'd recommend shopping for any variety of vegetables to compliment the above.
Nope. There really isn't any evidence either way as GMO research in the population hasn't extended through a large enough period of time to indicate anything at all. But I guarantee that roundup you're inevitably eating is bad for you. And I guarantee that monopolizing the food industry through genetic copyrighting is going to hemorrhage the economy, and discourage legitimate farmers from continuing their age old practices. Don't be ignorant.
To most people they are. He didn't actually say anything bad about GMO except the 'genetic copyright' bit, which means he is a commie.
Eating too many pesticides will probably be bad for you though.
Right because opposition to fascist corporate ownership of food production is communism right? Especially when infringement upon those copyrights can be dictated by a shift in the wind or a heavy rain.
get the fuck out of here you goddamn vegetarian
How the fuck does /fit/ gain muscle/size off of such a weak ass budget
1 lb chicken
1 lb fish
1/4 lb Almonds
8 servings veggies
1 cup Cottage cheese
How the fuck does 150 last
I'm increasing my budget to this amount. I have been "buying" frozen pizzas, whole wheat pasta, and chicken in bulk for months now.
I have a steady full-time job again so my budget for groceries is increasing. Just bought some organic salad greens (kale, red chard, romaine), some side veggies (carrots, garlic, asparagus, red potatoes) and some meat (lean ground beef, shrimp, andouille sausage, tuna steaks) and some other shit like bananas, rice, and whole wheat bread for $60 at Publix.
Buy rice and beans in giants bags at an Indian market. If you don't have one, try a Mexican then an Asian market. Those bags are cheap and will last you the better part of a year, especially if you have an Indian market nearby.
For the protons, TVP is dirt cheap, and unflavored whey can be dirt cheap.
You can get a wholesale membership for free as a college student in USA. I use BJs.
You can buy beef at 3 dollars a pound or less, giant cans of tomato sauce for like 5 dollars, you wont need more than 2, and giant sacks of rice.
the beef 1 pound a day for 30 days is 90$. The 2 cans of sauce are 10$. The sack of rice will last you an eternity for 12$.
There you saved 38 bucks.
>spend 30 dollars on food per week
>eat like a supermodel tier skellington
Topkek these are the people who give you advice on 4chinz
We buy for 3. Husband, wife, and baby.
Organic 85/15 ground beef $6
2 pound bag of brown rice $2
Gallon of 2% 2.69
Gallon of whole 2.99
Whole wheat bread 1.89
Boneless/skinless chicken breast: usually the biggest packs we can buy about $10
Broccoli $1 per bag
10 yoplait Greek yogurt $10...
Stuff like that. This is weekly though.
I would really enjoy anyone spending less than $150 a month on food would post a pic of their body.
There's no fucking way you can look aesthetic on a sub $200 a month diet. You can not die, certainly, but muscles/low body fat? No, it's not gonna happen.
I eat pretty much as cheaply as I can, and spend around $200 a month on food, $250 if I want to eat beef every now and then.
This is my food budget. A big bag of potatoes, ramen (make it w/o the seasoning), brown rice, a big bag of raw carrots, broccolli, and lean chicken breast. Based Costco shopping. My carbs last me month after month, all I really by are veggies and proteins to restock the pad.
I wish we had these sorts of farmer's markets. The ones here are all hipsters selling 'all natural free range hormone free we sang to them every day so there was no cruelty' tomatoes at $5 a piece.
Alright I'm one of those hippy grow your own food types, and let me say organic is a jew lie.
people with more money than sense seem to think
>it's made without pesticides and gmo's so it must be healthy
and greedy jew farms think
>we can charge 50% extra for the same product as long as we half-assedly pass the criteria
If you want better food then you better grow your own shit. Modern farms, organic or not, grow on depleted soil with NPK fertilizers and use plants bred for shelf stability, not nutrition or even taste. Which is why grandma's tomato's taste better than the three dollar watery shits at the grocery store.
Grow your own shit in the backyard if you want more nutritious food, a square foot garden is an easy starting point to making yourself less dependent on the seed of the jew. But if not at least save your shekels.
>he thinks that organic pesticides are healthier
Ignore faggot OP.
I've just started bulking but I'm strapped for cash, can maybe spend £35 a week max.
What are cheap foods high in calories that have protein? I've got oats and oats, but I can't stock up on milk - limited fridge space.
My shopping list is usually like this for a week:
1 kilo of chicken breast - £5
1 kilo of beef minced - £5.99
Rashers of bacon - £2
Tortilla wraps - £2
Doritos sour cream for fajitas - 2.59
Burger buns - £1.50
Loaf of bread - £1
Oven chips - £1.59
Milk - £2
Oatmeal - £1.50
Pack of sausages - £2
>Tortilla wraps - £2
>Doritos sour cream for fajitas - 2.59
>Burger buns - £1.50
>Loaf of bread - £1
>Oven chips - £1.59
2dl oven rice and 1l milk for breakfast and last meal of the day. Though you can go lower with just oat flakes and water. Eaten raw.
Rice and cheap chicken legs. I mean come on. 3 Full chicken legs (1,3kg?) cost here like 2€ and sliced costs like +13€/kg.
Cabbage is cheap as fuck. Make a soup with that, chicken, some potatoes, onions and carrots. Just need huge ass saucepan for that shit when you make food in bulk and eat it for n+1 days.
Also natural peanuts, apples and self made bread are golden.
Why are vegans so insistent on spreading the lie that moderately high protein intake is bad for your kidneys?
Post body by the way, let's see what your lmao 50g protein gets you.
Something I used to do-
Make a really thick stew or something (t-b-h I just bought it canned and spruced it up a bit) and then use it as a filling in a tortilla. 500ml or something will last you for days.
I buy like $20 worth of frozen veggies which can last me a month.
$1 sardines and i'll buy 20 of those.
6 pounds of rice.
and then those great value oatmeal packs of 12. i'll buy like 4 of those.
Then some coffee
that lasts me a month easily. idk how u fags spend so much on food.
lower your portions
You haven't been to Germany I see. Their processed food is shit tier. Also selection is few if you don't want beer. No wonder their 1000€/month tier people can afford it. Even dogs don't eat it.
>oh no a buzzword like GMO! That must means it's bad because all the moms say it is!
Remember anon, we wouldn't have the disease resistant, large and fruitful crops we do today without GMO. Also no recorded deaths or impacts on human health from GMOs, ever.
What? Bitch for 30 bucks I get:
chicken, bananas, potatoes, rice, couscous, yogurt, milk, rice milk, various veggies (fresh), canned fruits and pureed tomatoes, frozen spinach, snack cakes, rolled oats, jam, wheat bread, toilet paper-
where do you live, and why do you eat 10 protein bars you fuck?
wait, this this bait? did I fall for bait again? my mom told me this would happen.
Dude you're a dipshit there are countless variables that have gone unchecked in the real world in relation to GMO and human/environmental health. In addition to that they have genetic copyrights which as I said before can be violated simply by a shift in the wind, disallowing farmers to wash their seeds or otherwise face copyright infringement charges. Additionally the chemical resistance that Monsanto is promoting allow for the use of Round-Up which even after extensive washing can still remain in fruit bodies. If it's going to cause death it's going to be a slow degenerative death. But there is no data existant to show it one way or the other and if there are studies the methods are deviously flawed.
You should seriously stop and do some critical thinking regarding social quid pro quo. It's not technology is an aberration of law and biology. There is a company, Monsanto, who has vested high stakes into genetic modification research. They have patented the actual DNA of their plants. Practically all fruit bearing plants produce pollen as a product of sex, which can be moved from one plant to the next through any number of environmental variables (any insect, any animal, any wind, rain, harvest). Pollen is also retained in the soil. Being that pollen can transfer from one plant to the next to produce a fruit body, which is the method of seed distribution, a farmer adjacent to a GMO farmer's crops then become contaminated with legally copyrighted genetic material, and are therefore unusable in a legal fashion. Monsanto seed are much more expensive than your standard seed and they're not heirloom seeds, you have to buy them for every harvest. The only thing the seeds really accomplish is a chemical resistance to the products in Round-Up which has yet to be scientifically validated through extended use in the human diet, in livestock, or in the environment to be genuinely safe.

Seriously? I'm on 100$ a month as it is, still getting 5-6k calories.
100% organic, get on my LEVEL. Parboiled rice and beans and chocolate soymilk and peanut butter and broccoli. Some grapefruits now and again. And tortilla chips when I feel like it.
Where are you hunting where Fudds are not using bolt action rifles?
This /k/ommando gets it. You should be able to get a nugget and ammo for under $150
>literally just started lifting a few months ago
I'm thinking no to pics. Gained a good 25 pounds, up from 155.
>inb4 would have gained more if not vegan
I'm well aware, thanks, but I'm proud of my 25 pounds.
OK, so $150 Ameros is $300Kangabucks, so i'll do my calculations with $30 at Australian prices
7kg of beef mince, $70 $230 left
7kg chicken, $70 $160 left
14kg of mixed vegetables, $22.26 $137.74 left
14kg mixed stirfry vegetables, $31.98 $105.76 left
4L of olive oil, 28.50 so $77.26
2Jars of all pourpose seasoning, 13.38 so $63.88
700ml sweet chilly sauce, 1.99, 61.89 left
28 packets of ramen, 16.80, $45.09 (good ramen, indomie brand.)
2kg rice, $3, 42.09 left
1L soy sauce, 8.40, 33.69
3kg Oats, 4.76, 28.93 left
that's enough for 28L of milk with 93c left over. Easy Peasy OP
not the guy youre replying to but hes probably a masshole.
>see pic related
Why are you getting mad at me for pointing out that probably three quarters or more of what you gained is fat? If all you care about is strength then you shouldn't take it so personally when I point out the obvious.
>why are you getting mad at me
>shouldn't take it so personally
Did I come off as mad..?
I mean I called you retarded, but you were acting retarded, that's hardly taking anything personally.
No hard feelings, bro.
Damn are you me? This is frugal as fuck and probably the best advice in here.
I would add sacks of potatoes though to alternate with your rice. Potatoes are a great source of literally everything your body needs. Also, eating a raw potato has the same texture as an apple so you don't even need to cook them if you want to save time.
