What other poor people eat.....
February 7, 2013 at 6:44 PM
I spend $100 to $110 a week on food. I looked up the income guidelines once and according to the chart we would qualify for food stamps, but we do not receive them.

Breakfasts: home made oatmeal with flax meal, banana, and black strap molasses.

2 organic eggs in organic butter with organic whole wheat toast

English muffin with a banana and a kiwi


Lunches: lentil soup with beer bread

Almond butter, home made, and apple butter sandwiches.Organic Carrots and hummus on the side

Grilled cheese, all organic, with organic apple slices

Salad ( organic lettuce, regular tomatoes and onion) with black beans and sunflower seeds on top

Dinners: garbanzo bean curry
Tamale pie
Black beans and rice
Spaghetti and bean balls
Vegnews Mac and cheese (cheese sauce made from potatoes, carrots, onions, butter, cashews, and nutritional yeast)
Veggie sushi


Edit: I'm surprised so many people think this is disgusting. It's what we'd be eating even if we had more funds. It's real food, it's good.

    It's cheap because you don't eat meat. It be a lot more difficult to spend 100 a week if you bought all of your supplies and meat.

    We spend more than that because we eat meat. I'm not a big fan of meat (don't like the texture of most), but dh and the girls like it so I cook it with almost every dinner/breakfast.

    What can I say. I wouldn't eat meat if we had more funds.

     LMAO! Yeah I'm about the same. Cereal or oatmeal for breakfast, sandwhich for lunch, and pork chops or chicken with corn or green beans and mashed potatoes. :)
