Hey /b/, poorfag here. I can save up about $27 for food each month. I have been buying bulk bags of B grade frozen veggies. I cook them in the microwave, salt, pepper, and furikake.

I have been eating pic related 3 times a day for almost 2 months now. For dinner I eat half a can of beans along with the bowl of veggies.

Does /b/ have any other ideas for me? Remember I have a budget of about $27 per month.
>>
>>578821584
You need to start sucking cock so you can afford mcdonalds.
>>
thought I might add I am not vegetarian or anything. beans are cheap protein and i thought if I could only afford to eat one thing it should be vegetables
>>
poor bastard
>>
do you have your own garden? if so grow some damn veggies.

also try dumpster diving, it's not glorious but it can supplement your food quite a bit. try raiding them just after the local supermarket etc closes, staff tend to dump cages of food out the back when they leave
>>
>>578821584
Take advantage of food banks and charities in your area. I used to go to a free dinner each Wednesday at this methodist church even though I already had plenty of food.
>>
>>578821973
I live in a city
>>
how about buying a huge bag of rice
i dont imagine that being very expensive. plus it goes together with the vegies somewhat well...
>>
What kind of job do you have that requires you spend less than a dollar a day on food?

Am I right in thinking this is actually some kind of charitable gesture or campaign to raise awareness of something?

im going to guess you wont steal?

Bump because I'm impressed op
>>
>>578821584
That's a decent meal plan for living on the cheap. Don't avoid dairy though, anon. Also ramen noodles can add some calories and make you feel more full than just veggies.

Bags of legumes and rice are dirt cheap as well. Making soups can stretch those foods even further and leftover soup keeps very well.
>>
>>578821584

What's funny is you're likely eating more healthy than just about everybody here.
Also, I spend almost the same amount as you on food.
>>
>>578822617

I guess you could grovel to your employer for more money.

Is the $27 month just for this month then or is it actually your monthly budget.
>>
>>578822776
Ramen sounds nice ,hope it's not too expensive
>>578822784
I don't do this because it's very healthy,I really can't afford anything else

Why the hell are you not buying carbs? They're cheap as hell and the most filling.

>>578822916

OP, I'd substitute your pepper for Ramen. You could buy some seriously industrial-size rations of Ramen. Months-worth of the stuff for like 20 bucks. Mix it in with your veggies for dinner and it'll help you feel more wholesome.

What do you do for drink? Just water?
>>

Not saying replace the peppers with ramen for the nutrition. Just that I don't think pepper goes well with ramen and veggies. You may disagree.
>>
>>578822947
For reference, OP: I'm on a $60/mo budget (which I realize is way more than yours) and most of it goes into huge bags of rice. I mostly eat rice and beans, bananas, and veggies when they go on sale.
>>
>>578823110
Water,maybe some coke when a friend has it..Can't afford 4$ for a beer or soda
>>
>>578822916
Yeah, I understand that. That's what makes it funny. You're eating like that because it's inexpensive, but in the process you're eating healthier than just about everyone here. More energy, nicer body and far less illness at a fraction of the cost.
>>
>>578821584

Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, make your own bread. Whole wheat pasta, learn how to make a little go a long way.

Try to get a rot. chicken and use it to make broth that can be frozen.

You can eat healthy for a very little amount of money. Rice and beans are your friends. Quality of food counts.

Ignore people saying to eat ramen or other junk.

Farmer's markets and small grocery stores are amazing resources to get food for nearly free if you know how to make connections.
>>
>>578823350
I don't think that enters in my budget
>>
oatmeal is pretty inexpensive and filling

you can get the value-brand bags at walmart for like $2

when you're shopping compare its $/lb to what you've already been buying, I'll bet it's more food for less money.

although, oatmeal without sugar or fruit or anything is basically gruel. You'll be eating like an 18th century orphan lol
>>
last offer..20-255$ for a blowjob
>>
>>578823216
I understand.

I'm not in as dire straits as you, my friend, but I find having something sweet helps. If you ever have a few spare bucks, you can buy a thing of instant-make lemonade or other sort of drink. Dilute it 2:1 than it recommends and it'll still taste good. You can make gallons and gallons off of only a few dollars.

That's all the advice I have. My heart goes with you, anon.

Don't tell me what does and doesn't enter into your budget. You can likely talk to managers to get the price of chickens that would be thrown out at a discounted price if you catch them a few mins before they are supposed to be thrown.

I grew up with alcoholic and abusive mother / 7 stepfathers...

We survived on ramen and ketchup sandwiches but just barely. Learn that you can eat healthily on a budget if you don't mind asking for a bit of help. Most people will go out of their way if you're open and honest to help you.

You can dumpster dive, really. It's not as horrible as you think and once you realize that there are billions of pounds of good food going to waste in most western countries... you'll eat like a king.

Watch the movie "Dive!" on a friend's netflix account... you'll see what I'm talking about.

OP, what city do you live in? If you are lucky enough to have a Restaurant Depot in your area, you can get a card from a friend, and explore the world if really cheap foods. Definitely check out the clearance markdowns, as you can often find a nice deli turkey for $6 or so (15 lbs). It is truly a beautiful place.

You tried baking your own bread? flour is dirt cheap, smack in some yeast and water and you have your basic "pizza dough", make that into 'flatbread', for couple of bucks you can have a supply of bread for a month easy
>>
budget for white flour, ramen noodles(water and flour and ramain noodles make liquid paste gravy at what consistency you prefer while using the flavor packets from the noodles...inexpensive, and packed with carbs. flower and water thick pasted makes pan fried bread: Very filling and inexpensive form of biscuits and gravy.

To survive one can do so with a minimum of 2 oz of rice per day. Not exceptionally healthy, but carbs is all one needs to avoid starvation and coma.

One merely need fillers and carbs for energy. The vitamins,minerals and protein amounts can be ingested during one meal per day and is adequate in maintaining good health.

boil earthworms and bake them in the oven..grind them after they are brittle...100% protein powder...can be added to the gravy. has no taste.
>>
man upload a picture with you and if you're pretty i can raise it to 30$, but that's how far i can go
>>
OP call all the churches you can. Tell them you can't afford food. They usually donate stuff.
>>
>>578821584
OP, what exactly is your goal?
Most people eat based on how the food tastes and how filling it is.
Their nutritional education consists primarily of shit their retarded parents told them when they were growing up.

So, are you seeking variety right now?
Other tastes/textures within your budget?
Something more filling?
>>
>>578824376
Did you just said earthworms ?Anon,yes ,indeed I am desperate but I don't think I could eat that,don't call me a picky guy but I will have to just say no

Grab yourself a bag of savory yeast flakes. They're an extremely rich source of complete protein and high in potasssium, iron and B vitamins. They also season almost any savory dish quite well.

Budget? Lol pfft. What a bum.

A friend of mine got in a seriously bad situation when he was kicked out. He had a crested gecko, which he then sold, but he keep the colony of mealworms he had used to feed the gecko. He roasted them, tried them, grinded them and even added them in soups and such. They kept breeding, so he just kept eating them and adding them to things.
>>
I feel sympathetic to you but if all u have is 27 leftover a month and youre working youre doing life wrong man. I understand rent and school is expensive but you need to reevaluate shit. Try and find a better job. Find side hustles. Buy some rabbits because they breed like a motherfucker then kill them and cook and theres youre cheap protein. Step the fuck up and do shit faggot

Can we all donate a bit to op's steak and potato fund?

>>578824519

Mix 2 cups flour with just under 200ml water .. make a ball of smooth dough out of it .. roll it out thin on your counter (the thinner the better usually), slice it into strips .. toss the strips into boiling water for about 10 minutes ... dump into strainer, rinse with cold water. Make sauce out of whatever you want. I use a lump of tomato paste, water & salt.

It's currently my favorite cheap filler.
Other cheap fillers are rice & potatoes.
Honestly, I'd trade it all for your frozen veggies. I can't get cheap veggies where I live.

Also, I recommend buying multivitamins online. Can get some real cheap ones.
If you want more protein (based on your description, you probably don't need it unless you regularly do a lot of damage to your body), defatted soy flour is the cheapest thing I've found. Try to get non-GMO from a a facility that uses expeller presses instead of chemicals in their processing. You can reconstitute the flour and make something similar to tofu out of it. That's what I currently do.

Wow, poor you. You should definetly invest in carbohydrates, since this serves quite more energy than just veggies. Try rice, noodles and flavour.
E.g. you can bake a simple bread with flour, yeast, water and salt. All ingredients should be quite cheap. Or you can make pancakes. They don't taste as good as if you prepare them with milk and eggs, but still, you can make wraps or something.
Try some rice or noodles with your veggies. They should be cheaper than the vegetables and you won't need to eat as much veggies because you can stop your hunger with carbohydrates.
Beans are a good idea because of the proteins.
However it is best to vary your meals, so you get enough of all vitamins and stuff.
For a breakfast, you can also cook basic porrigde, sugar should be cheap enough to afford you to sweeten it a little.
