Hey y'all! I'm wondering what are some cheap healthy food choices? I recently lost almost 20 lbs and won the biggest loser competition at my school unfortunately I also lost my job smh! I'm having a hard time coming up with healthy inexpensive food choices and wanted a little guidance from my BHM peeps. Any suggestions on grocery lists or meal plans I could follow weekly? Thanks in advance guys! Fitness is free but food most certainly is NOT! All tips are welcome!

no plans, but stay on the outside of the aisles. eat real food, not prepackaged stuff. for example: a pack of chicken breasts on the outside aisle is much cheaper than a bag of pre-cooked chicken or pre-seasoned chicken strips. 

grapefruit, oranges, and apples last much longer than grapes, strawberries, and bananas.  but if you wanna buy the latter, eat them within the week 

beans are cheap as sh*t and fill you up

buy a head of lettuce or cabbage instead of a bag. 


as a student i've taken advantage of assistance (bite me), and it can be done.

Veggies are good. Just get the cheap fresh veggies and look at different ways to prepare them online. When you season it just right it's so damn good.
Maybe some brown rice and dried beans.

great advice so far. 

my two cents

i think the easiest way to keep it simple while staying within your budget is to either keep a journal or make a list of the foods you ate last week for example, think of the foods that you know aren't good for you and come of with a healthier alternative. 

ex. if you normally have two scrambled eggs, toast with jelly, sausage and cranberry juice for breakfast, try to cut the two eggs down to one, consider boiling it instead of frying, either eliminate the toast all together or make sure it is whole wheat whole grain--without the jelly, bake your sausage instead of frying it and drink club soda with a splash of cran to cut out all that sugar. 

basically it's about staying in your comfort zone and making small changes to what you normally eat (at least in the beginning until you're ready to stop eating bread sausage all together) and that takes away the pressure of "dieting". plus it keeps you from breaking the bank. 

it's hard. girl, i know. but baby steps can make a world of difference.

I just hustle here and there so I only get 10-20 dollars randomly every week so I need things that won't perish easily.

dang, that's a tight budget. 

why they wont give you stamps?

anyway, frozen veggies are just as good if not better than fresh veggies, they last longer of course and they're way cheaper.
