Cheapest way is plan ahead and stay away from "convenience" foods.
I eat 5 to 6 times a day because I tend to overeat so I limit portion size. Plus I workout after 6pm and I don't like to w/o on a full stomach.
I recently did a 30 day single component food program. Staples were:
Eggs-whole unless your doc says you must have a substitute. Substitutes are very expensive.
Skinless, boneless chicken breast approx. $7/3 lbs. 6-8 meals.
Ground turkey-extra lean
Top round steak
Natural peanut butter
That's 7 proteins good variety
Veggies- buy fresh
I don't tolerate alot of fresh veggies so I would steam ahead sometimes not the tastiest but cheaper than frozen.
Broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, celery, carrots.
Stay away from bagged. The bottom of those bags are nasty and you'll end up throwing some away.
Carbs- fruits all fresh, potatoes white and sweet. Oatmeal-bulk not the packets. Prepared cereal look for Uncle Sam's, it is processed but whole wheat flakes and flax seeds nothing else.
Don't forget salsa, use it to season anything.
Look for sale items. For some reason blueberries have been on sale here for the past couple of weeks.
Start a fit-day account and track and weigh everything.
The first thing to do is read through builts links.
Personnally I'd rather spend two hours cooking on the weekend than open a package on tuesday.
Half an apple is always a better choice than a jell-o cup.
