Crockpot.
Cheap cuts of beef (they'll come out nice and tender in the crockpot).
Potatoes.

Sams Cost co one of those. Chicken Vegies, Fish, Milk and a job. Or work in food service. Eat on the job and steal from them.

crockpot $20
best investment for cooking ever

u can even buy family size portions of meat or whole fryer chickens and they will cook wonderfully well

rice, potatoes, beans are all cheap and quality foods

The Crock pot is the greatest investment for bodybuilding since the barbell.

Brown round steak
Can of french onion soup (or other for flavor)
Cook slow for the day
A couple hours out, throw in some potatoes, onions, carrots and other vegtables and cook until tender.

Fix enough for a few days and you have a great meal pre made to just heat up. Good for all the nutrients needed and cheap meals.

If you eat alot of bread don't buy it at the supermarket, go to one of those discount bread stores if there is one in your area it's usually super cheap. Chicken is also a very low priced meat to eat besides tuna.

If you have a chance...swing by garage sales and look for crock pots, George Foreman grills, and cook books. Also check out the stores in other neighborhoods. We have some like Save alot and Aldi's that cater to a lower income budget and you can get some good deals on meat and veggies.

LOL! I actually work for the school as a kitchen assistant, and whatever food is left over, I eat. It's not really good for me though. :(
