Heres the dealy: I need to buy some very cheap, yet healthy food from WalMart. So far I've got Raman noodles (a given), fruits and vegetables, and maybe some store brand yogurt. I don't know what cheap meats are good though that are not processed, or at least lightly processed. I'm not much of a cook, which doesn't help.

I heard stuff you find under the kitchen sink is pretty healthy to drink.

Ramen noodles are not healthy. they contain a huge amount of sodium which is bad for you.


get some brown rice instead.


EDIT: and to the guy above me, hot dogs are not healthy either.


i suggest buying some fresh fish. its not always cheap, but its fairly healthy.

Ramen noodles are not healthy at all man. They are essentially noodles that are fried and then cooked again in water. Not to mention they are really really high in sodium, containing at least 40% of what you need, but i think it's actually more. Fruits and veggies are the way to go. i would recommend learning to cook so you can better manage what it is your eating.

get some deli meats and make yourself a sandwich.. whole wheat bread...fat-free mayo... lettuce... you get the idea
#6
brown rice, wholemeal pasta.

Chicken fillets, but learn how to cook them. You don't want it undercooked.

Deli meats are generally high in fat for flavour, and fat free mayo doesn't exist - only 'low' fat which is still very fattening.

This thread goes some way to explaining why white people are fat.

that point about fat-free mayo was on Ugly Betty :P


Try treating all processed foods (to an extent) as bad.

If it grows, it's good.
Vegetables, Fruit, potatoes, wholemeal pasta, brown rice and wholemeal bread are all good.
Natural yoghurt with fruit is a nice alternative to buying fruit flavoured yoghurts.

Meat and fish you have to be more careful with. Buy it raw, keep it chilled or frozen (and give it time to defrost). Get help on cooking it.

I really do not understand, why people have to add flavours, I can eat just rice, or just pasta, or just "natural" yoghurt just fine!

But for flavours fruits, herbs, spices etc, NO salt

My parents actually have a garden in the summer. Delicious vegetables come out of it.
I highly recommend you grow your own foods, much more satisfying.

As for Wal-Mart... That is the place with little, or no healthy foods. At all.

Get some water, and all the veggies you can basically.

just out of curiousity if you wanna be healthy why the papa johns logo?


Its where I work. And right now I eat tons of fast food and processed crap, so I just want to eat better. I don't want to eat like steamed raisin skins and celery every meal, just stuff thats better than the usual high sodium processed junk.

Is there any way to get fresh fish cheap?

It depend's on what your tastes are. Some people would willingly wash a carrot and munch on it, where other's like an intricate;y made dish.

Experiment next time you're in the supermarket, buy the staple foods that are healthy then find other healthy (cheap) stuff to chuck in and see if it meshes well.

Well my parents are as well, but they're growing this vertical garden thing. Long story, but its basicly just stacked foam pots with plants in them lol. It doesn't seem to be giving out much vegetables yet, they just made it like a month or two ago. I got my mom a bamboo steamer for Mother's Day and we've had some steamed vegetables and they were GREAT. Really I just need to learn to cook better.

The government wants you to be fat, that's why everything that's good for you is expensive.

It's a ****ing conspiracy!!

Check it:

buy some pasta, bread, some fresh vegetables and fruits. some UNCOOKED MEAT from a BUTCHER. if you're looking for something quick, a chicken sandwich cooks in like less than 8 minutes. if you're looking for something awesome, you can make pasta with fresh vegetable sauce.

cook with olive or canola oil, not butter, as it's less fatty.

if you get the essentials from a grocery store you probably only have to spend like $50 a week after the initial $150-200 on groceries.

ground beef isn't that healthy but, might be your best bet.
bagels, salmon, chicken breast, TUNA is really cheap and healthy.
more veggies and fruits.
trail mix, baby carrots, tomatoes, etc.

go to a trader joe's if u have one near you.
cheap and tasty and pretty healthy.

Don't get whole wheat bread, get whole GRAIN. It's actually quite nice and you feel full after eating two slices.

This is actually an option of you live near a river or stream.

If I could get a ride to the river every afternoon I could probably catch enough trout to eat it at every meal.

I eat lots of Chicken and tuna.

However, if your under 16 (or preggers) don't eat too much tuna in a week cus apparently it has comparitively high levels of methylmercury and too much can be poisonous.
