    We normally run short of money by the month end but we eat economical meals just to make a survival

    I'm saving money by eating little cups of brown rice and quinoa for $2 each from DHC (healthy food and body care products). They can also be found in the grocery store, two for $4. I also just had some of those microwave cups of Chef Boyarde Beef ravioli and the Lasagna. They are high in sodium but I think okay in moderation. They were on sale 10 for $10. Sardines and a simple salad also make an economical lunch.

      I like the option of  Beef ravioli and Lasagna and they are cheap as well plus have the ability to fill a tummy

      You could survive perfectly.  You might not LIKE it, but meat is a learned taste.  Human biology is not actually designed to handle meat.  60% of our food should be carbs for energy.  Many veg sources of protein, too.

      well i disagree if you say that human biology is not designed to handle meat because we have the shape of teeth that are used to eat meat and vegetables both, so it means we can handle anything

    We all know carb foods are cheap. Bread goes along way and is cheap and peanut butter is a good source of protein and fat, which makes it stick with you. Keeping the tummy from growling is is more important than healthy eating in low money times.

      I disagree.  Healthy is always important.  Grandpa used to say "Many a doc has been called because someone ate too much; never because someone missed a meal."

      Penny....peanut butter is a good option to get protein and fat and yes sometimes with short money, we can eat some cheap things...but i agree to DzyMsLizzy that health is always important

    Yogurt or ramen soup, maybe an apple. But to 'fess up, I eat these a lot even when the pantry is full, lol.
