Pasta is dirt cheap, beef/pork mince can be bought cheaply, then some tinned tomatos, tomato paste, that will cover at least a few days for a decent bolognaise.


Potato is a lot of food for the money too.

We probably spend $30-$40 a day on food... but we eat way too much takeout. In College I lived on chicken breast, veggies, and salad... with some frozen burritos and pizzas thrown in there. Never tried to live on $4 a day though.

EASY.
2 dozen eggs= 2.50ish
Big bag of rice = Ranges
Chicken 2.5 lbs = $5.00 - 7.00
Lentils = $2.50
4 lbs kale and broccoli = $2.89 (Salad is pointless guys go for the real dark leafy greenz!)
Bumblebee 10 Pack of Tuna = $7.00
Coconut Oil = $6.00

There will be money left over, and extra rice and chicken and tuna.
Money left over will be for:
Tilapia
Ground Turkey
Fruits
Chocolate

when the week comes

and drinks.

en la futura.

Winner winner
Sunday night cook up the rice, put into tupperware.
Cook all that up. Dice up the veggies. Mix it in with the tuna add a lemon or lime on it. Put the lentils on top of the rice. Hardboil the eggs.

Feeding time is 6-10 pm (after work and school)
Sleep late

Lunchbreak devoted to enjoying life without the hassle of a meal =)

Find a way to up the guap in hte meantime.

You can buy a pack of chicken and a can of beans or corn or whatever for a bout 4 bucks depending on how good of a shopper you are.

That can last you about 2-3 days.

Where I live you'd have to say goodbye to all fresh fruit and vegetables. Probably all meat too. I'd be eating a lot of rice and potatoes may be the exclusion to expensive vegetables that are actually filling.

Food stamps should be a means of assistance and not living off of it entirely.

Anyways it wouldn't be that bad for one person.

Carton of Eggs= $1.50
Whole Wheat Bread = $1.50
Oatmeal = $3
1 LB Turkey =$5
2 LB Boneless Chicken=$5
1 Gallon of Milk= $2
1 Pack of 24 Water = $4
Pasta= $1
Olive Oil=$5

And some of this stuff would last the following week.

It's a bit tough, but not too bad.

By reading his Day 2 blog you can see he's already regretting the choices he's made, he didn't really invest in anything that would last him longer than a week at a time like rice or oatmeal.

Its not very hard to eat for a month on 120 bucks. Ive eaten on 15 bucks a week at times.

You get rice, frozen dinners that are often 2 for 4 and have the meat and grazy, you can get a whole chicken for like 4 bucks from meat markets and cook half each day, and get a box of cereal for 2....get chunky soups. They arel ike 1.89 each. Once for lunch one for dinner.

Its not really hard hard. Its nothing to make into a challenge. You just dont eat 3 meals a day.

I eat once or twice a day anyway. I get up at 5:10....dont feel like making or stopping for breakfast. I eat some crappy fast food lunch...and I eat some kinda snack before bed. At most its a sandwich.

And I bet I eat more than like 70% of the world.

I definitely think I come close to pulling off the $4/day for food thing on a regular basis.

A lot of my normal days consist of a breakfast featuring a pancake and eggs (with a touch of butter, syrup, and cream cheese). My lunch is often an apple, yogurt, and bagel. Then for dinner I frequently go the rice route with perhaps a bit of tomato soup and clementines. Doing some quick portioning of the prices with which I purchase all of that in whole (and accounting for the butter, cream cheese and syrup) I think I came out to around $4.50ish.

I figure I'd have to remove a few eggs, chill on the butter/cream cheese or stop eating fruits to really get down to the $4 limit.
