So, not much meat, right? I don't mind though.
Start with rice, beans and frozen veggies
For meat, go with chicken. The more whole it is, the more you'll save money wise. It's a good skill to be able to break down a bird anyway
Look for what's on sale. You can check online in the grocery store's monthly circular.
are all cheap in bulk, last a long time, and nutritious

meat and veggies are literally whatevers on sale some markets heavily discount things that are about to expire

eggs are cheap and full of protein, buy them

stirfry is one of the best cooking methods for poors, given that the meat and veggies you'll be getting weekly will be different stirfry doesn't really conflict with many veggies negatively

buying whole chicken is absurdly cheap, like $7 max, learn to butcher the thing and you'll have
2 breasts
2 thighs
2 drum sticks
more than enough for meat 3 times a week

find an all purpose season you like, personally i use soy sauce to get over the blandness of some meals
Ok, this is good and what I've expected, but what about breakfast? Is the my horrible budget good enough for 3 square meals a day?
well heres my breakfast meal for most days

bowl of rice
two sunny side up eggs cooked with green onion and occasionally garlic in the same pan
put one egg on your rice and mix in that runny yolk
other egg i eat on the side
season rice with soy sauce

bretty tasty, all meals are anything goes when you have no money though, you may want to go the beans on toast route
Okay, gotcha. Thanks a lot.
don't sweat it so much, the first two weeks will be kind of difficult because you have to switch your mentality, but youll adapt quickly

i live on roughly $50 a month and still eat decently, you have almost double my budget, if you really stick with butchering your own chicken and such you'll be able to eat like a king
Any sauce on who he is? It's a NWA album cover.

Shit I always wondered myself. Forgot about this album. Had the tape when I was like, 14
Some token white dude in the NWA crew haha
I've never gotten gas from beans, surprisingly
Can't beat it, that's the good stuff
yes. exist off dry beans, rice. eggs, peanuts, olive oil, oats, canned tuna, and fresh spinach. multivitamins.
Rice, beans, green cabbage, eggs, whole chickens or any meat that goes on sale for like $1.50 per pound or less. Carrots are also cheap. Store brand wheat bread will cover some vitamin/mineral needs on the cheap. Peanut butter and jelly will help stretch that but cheap pb&j aren't really healthy. The good shit can be rather pricey.

Food in general is cheap op. Buy things in the rawest, most whole format you can and do all the prep yourself. Things in small portions are generally more expensive per serving as are any trendy brand name items. Look for sales but pay attention to how much you're really saving. If it's only like 20 cents off or some shit then skip it. Don't go out to eat.
