Lets create a definitive list of healthy foods that are also cheap.  It is my hope to become fit and still be able to afford hookers.  Also feel free to add healthy foods that arent that cheap, or just general nutrition info that some of you more advanced bros may be privy to.  Let this be our nutrition forum.

I dont have any foods to list but I recently heard that corn is fucked and has been genetically altered in order to kill pests that eat crops.  Some sort of biological pesticide that doesnt bother humans. What say you?

Anybody know the deal with honey? I hear it's good for you from some people and that it's terrible from others.

Also are there any advantages to Greek yogurt over regular yogurt aside from the additional protein? Phone Post

Buy meat on sale or in bulk.

Cabbage

Kale

Collard Greens

Peanut butter

Apples

Peaches

Lentils

Black, pinto, navy, kidney beans bought dry. Cooked with a hamhock and served over brown rice.

Generally stick to whole foods (not the grocery store) and you'll be fine.

I buy big bags of frozen veg and stir fry it with various meats.

Recently started making my own bread with a bread maker. Soon I will be grinding the flour myself.

You dont have to to extremes to start eating right. Its just common sense.


Honey is fine in moderation. Can help with seasonal allergies if you buy local.

- making your own trailmix is a really healthy way to get energy (carbs & fat). It's pretty funny but sometimes I find salted nuts that are cheaper than unsalted ones. So I rinse them through a strainer and put them in the oven for 4-5min on 275. If you buy them in bulk (on sale, or at costco, etc) it can end up pretty cheap.

If you train over a long period (some MMA gyms run like a 3hr evening practice) and you want something to EAT not just drink, I've always found it easier to stomach trailmix than most things.

- Also if you can (and nearly anyone can) build or buy yourself a little greenhouse and start growing your own stuff. Initially it's a bit of an investment but if you have a pretty stable life then it will pay itself back in 2-3 years easily. My pops and I built one in their backyard after reading a couple kvr29 threads.

It's pretty funny but if you go to a hydroponics shop with all the stoners you can get a lot of your indoor growing stuff. And because you're not necessarily worried about smell or other miscellaneous cannabis grower concerns. I have a buddy who lives in a 2 bedroom apt and turned his 2nd room into a whole indoor greenhouse and grows his own food. So it's doable for anyone with a little ingenuity and dedication.

One huge benefit imo is you KNOW what went into your food. I'm in the process of building my own (after a couple more paychecks lol) and I think I'm going to be using all organic materials (no pesticides and such). I probably sound like a crazy prepper, but after reading up on some of the Monsanto nonsense I've even started stockpiling my own seeds.

There was a news story a month or so ago talking about honey. Most "honey" that you buy at stores doesn't even really classify as "honey" in that it has no pollen in it. They can't even trace it back to where it comes from then lol. A lot is brought in from China which contains metals like lead. It was pretty eye opening actually.

I've been buying honey from a local farmer for 1 year or so now and it is 100% amazing. You can taste the very flowers that you smell and everything. It's raw/uncooked and unfiltered.

Marshall Farms in American Canyon. They have several different types of honey too. It's expensive but well worth it.

So, if you can find a local farmer near you...do it. Plus they say it helps with allergies too because of the pollen in it.

Canned pumpkin.

Loaded with Vitamin A, beta carotene, and FIBER. Barely any carbs and no fat.

I've started using a 1/2 cup in my shakes every now and then. Just use some vanilla whey, frozen bananas, and cinnamon with it.

3 LB eye of round roast 10$

Bag of red potatoes 3$

Bag of carrots 1$

An onion .50 $

bag of frozen peas 1$



Brown the meat in oil. Add everything else including some spices you need to have on hand (onion powder/garlic powder/salt/pepper, bay leaf if ya got it).

Simmer for 3 hours or use a crock pot.

15 bucks for a healthy and tasty dinner for 7-10 days depending on how much you eat.



When I was single I would cook pots of food like this or chili or whatever, freeze it and it would last me a week of dinners. Then just gotta deal with breakfast, lunch and snacks.
