I was wondering, what would you eat, cheap and nutritious, and how would you make the most of it (not drink liquids with and after meals, chew well, go to bed early,etc) if you were extremely poor, for one reason or another? Other lifestyle suggestions welcome.
A few prices first in Romania,where I live:
Oat flakes (100% debranned oats, no other ingredients added): ~2.2$/kg (2.2 lbs)
Cheese (natural)- anything between 3 and 9$/ kg (2.2lbs)
Whole chicken: ~3$/kg
Turkey legs: ~4$/kg
So, for Romania, say you would have 40$/month for food.
I was thinking eating oat flakes ,and garlic. 33$ would allow for 500g of oats/day… ~1800 cals and 62 grams of protein (at best). I know oat protein is about as good soy protein SHOULD be. (and read a study that people training on 800 cals a day actually made progress, lost fat and maintained lean mass…so training would be a good idea…)
And garlic is good for…a lot of stuff. Of course, when possible one would buy cheese meat and veggies.What do you think about this?
Adjust money available according to where you live…
Note:to make sure no one gets it wrong, I’m not talking about me
