So funds are lacking and food is minimal.
Any suggestions for budgetary meals that will subside the hunger.
So far I have been eating a lot of rice.
ease.

rice with veggies .....

throw in a curry sauce or thai peanut sauce or teriaki sauce...and dinner is done. plus its makes alot so you'll have leftovers for lunch.

making soup is good and cheap too.

try www.allrecipes.com for some ideas.

:)sarah<----currently living on approx. 30-40$ for food (well, combined with the bf's 30-40$ a week...we spend ~70-80$ at the grocery store and eat well all week!)

Survived a while on toast and peanut butter with louisiana hot sauce spread over the pb.

The bread, pure carbs; the peanut butter, oils (fat) and protein; the hot sauce gives your stomach the feeling it is full.

Full on budget, from undergrad where either I didn't have the money or you didn't want to go to Loblaws (blablas).

Shop anywhere but Loblaws. I found out last night how much cheaper the Sobeys near me is. 1/3 cheaper AND 24 hours.

as discussed in another thread, entitled "Ghetto Dinner", one can survive on .59 cent Savarin meat pies and .39 cent packages of Mr. Noodles.

Don't buy pre-packaged crap. You'll waste your money faster than you can sneeze.

Buy fresh goods, or stuff that you can prepare yourself (like actually make) and stuff that will last you awhile

stock up on chicken, rice and veggies

fusilli pasta
powdered pesto
kraft sundried tomato salad dressing
crusty italian bread
grated cheese of your choice
butter


cook pasta, drain pasta, put pasta back in pot over min heat, add salad dressing, butter, add pesto, stir....(amounts to your tastes), put on plate, grate cheese over pasta...

slice bread, butter, cover with grated cheese, bake at 450º till cheese bubbles


voila, not too ghetto nor expensive and taste's yummy

if you can afford chicken, chop boneless chicken into cubes, cook in frying pan and add to pasta

And if you can't afford that, I hear HUFFING A BIG BAG OF GLUE does the trick.

Tofu is cheap protein and you can make just about anything with it. A one-pound tub is like $1.50.

Sure, cheap meat pies, ramen and KD will fill you up, but that's about all they'll do for you.

Go to a grocery store like Price Chopper or Food Basics. Stock up on staples.

Buy dried beans, soak them overnight then cook with them. They're cheap, filling, and a source of protein.

Fresh food is cheaper than pre-packaged food, and better for you. Exceptions have to be made for out-of-season produce, which is often cheaper frozen or canned.

Make tuna-noodle casserole.
Make vegetarian chili (eat it with rice otherwise it's not a complete protein!!)
Make vegetable soup and freeze it in individual portions.

Buy store brands.

Etc.

I spend maybe $50/month, $75 MAX on groceries, if that, and I Always eat well.
