what's some examples of a typical shopping list per week usually entail for someone on a healthy diet but trying to be on a budget?

For 50-60 bux a week.......
(keep in mind, the stores on military bases sell stuff a little cheaper and no sales tax)

two bags frozen chicken
two dozen eggs
natty PB
large container oatmeal
bag of rice
mayo
20 cans tuna
pickle relish
apples
vanilla extract
cottage cheese
I probably forgot some stuff

So you dont really eat any red meat?

why do you buy the pickle relish, vanilla extract and what is natty PB ?

Do you mean Peanut Butter?

I usually get for about 100 dollars:

3 large steak
3 double chicken breast
1 fish
2 bags oatmeal
3 tins tuna 500g
1 bag brown rice
12 eggs
2 x 500 g cottage cheese
1 block of cheese 500g
honey, bread, milk
apples brocoli bananas carrots onions sweet potatoes

and that gets me by for about 5 days.

pickle relish goes with mayo for tuna sometimes
yes, natural peanut butter
vanilla extract for oatmeal

I think about 50-70 dollars would be enough food for a week. For me it's probably around 40 dollars a week. I buy all the cheapest stuff I can find (Grocery store brand).

Join a wholesale club like BJ's. They have great deals on eggs, chicken, turkey, big bags of frozen veggies etc.

Syntekz, $40/week - Damn. Wait until you get married and have kids, it goes up to about $200/wk.

I don't plan on that for a long while, and if I do. I'll make my wife buy her own damn food. ;)
