So I just added up all the foods that I eat in a day (approx 3,900 calories), and it turns out it all totals out to 12 dollars a day, max.
Of course, I do eat the most bland, cheap foods that one can find (2 dollar box of 30 serving oats, big jug of olive oil to drink from, eggs for super cheap, chicken, bulk broccoli store brand, unsalted cheap peanuts, canned tuna, malto, dextrose, whey protein, apple and banana, and lowfat yogurt).
Just saying, if you figured eating lots of food is gona cost an arm and a leg, realize that eating the most basic essential foods is flat out cheap eating for how much you get to eat, and it’s the best foods for you. 12 dollars a day, sheesh, that’s the equivilant to one meal out, lol.
Btw, anyone have good substitutes for canned tuna that doesn’t require cooking? The meal in a can is very handy and I’m going to need it once school/work starts up.
