I just moved out on my own (living with 2 roommates) for the first time and we''re all cooking seperately. I have a general understanding of how to cook some things but haven't done it in awhile and I have no idea what to get when grocery shopping.

I have some money saved up and a small income and I'm looking to spend $100 or less for a month. Can anyone help me buy food that will still taste good and be filling and last me a month on $100?

Potatoes + Kielbasa + Eggs
Wash and peel the potatoes, throw them in a frying pan with salt and pepper (garlic powder optional), after you toss them add sliced kielbasa, optionally crack an egg or two.
Add bell peppers if you want.
Plate with cheese on top.

Ta-da, breakfast scramble.

I chop some onion, fry it till it is yellow, throw some leftover rice in the pan and add chopped tomatoes and beans as the rice turns dry. Usually if there's too much liquid and I'm impatient I add some bread slices to dry it up.

I tried adding a bunch of cheap shit just for the sake of it and have now arrived at this. I absolutely love it.

Thanks guys. Looks like I'll grab some eggs and rice definitely. Any tips for buying meats and veggies for cheap? I don't think I could stand eggs being my only protein for a long time

if you want meat head back to the meat counter of your grocery store. some thimes they will have meat that is about to "expire". It's not bad, some restaurants age steaks for months. you'll just have to learn how to tenderize it and cook it. this will require a little effort, but will be worth it. check for chicken and pork that may be on sale. most likely you will only have a day or two to eat those, so plan accordingly.

See this? These are thai curry pastes. Mix them with coconut milk, you got all kind of different curries.

Buy frozen vegetable mix. Buy frozen chicken pieces, thighs or even breasts in bulk.
Buy a big sack or jasmin rice.

Thats it. Thats all there is to it. One dollar a meal.
Literally ALL your nurtrient needs are met by this. And it tastes fucking great.

Dont like spicy food? Use less paste.
Bulking up? Add more chicken?
Feeling funky? Add a tablespoon of peanut butter. Or some lime leaves. Maybe a bit of potato in your masaman curry, maybe some glass noodles for your panang. Maybe some sesame oil for finishing..?

Also for cooking rice, use 2 cups rice (washed), 3 cups water. Salt. Boil, done. Literally foolproof.

this is pro I'm a rich adult and I stille at these all the time

it's so cheap and easy you just need one pan and a rice cooker makes hardly any dishes

just put the rice on, then in a frying pan cook the meat, then add some cocunt milk and the frozen vegetables and some paste, and then I just chuck in the rice but you can leav it separte

because poor people think that SNAP is supposed to pay for all of their food, I guess they don't know what the word "supplemental" means

Frozen vegetables and canned tomatoes. Also try looking for fresh vegetables that are in season, those are usually pretty cheap.
