Poor people in Europe buy raw meat, potatoes, rice, cheap vegetables etc. and prepare meals themselves.

Yeah, with 29 bucks worth of food for a single person. We can buy grains relatively cheap and not go very fancy on the veggies, not counting the costs of propane or electricity you could do well with just 29 bucks. My middle class family spends 70 a week for four people. To make 4 survive with 29 bucks would be a different thing, possible and very common, but a very shit quality of life.

Most people on SNAP have jobs and in many states you are required to have a job to get it, it's to supplement low income so poor people can afford vegetables and their limes. Remember that the USA was founded by the British so we inherited the need for constant limes, though thankfully we are not called "limeys" the way they are.

Also as much as it became a meme if she lives in CA (as many actors do) those limes might have been just a dollar or so.

Daniel Morris

Alone? No problem. With a family... well, you would not starve, at least.

What? If you buy the right stuff that shit is unbeatable calories for the money.
I mean the cheapest frozen pizza is like 75 Cent at like 800 calories. A can of shitty pre made food like pic related is like 85 Cent and gives up to 1000 calories. Literally not even pure butter can beat this.

Also kale is nice and all but if you're trying to survive cabbage is cheap as fuck, also onions, garlic, ginger, turmeric are all cheap as fuck, parsley, thyme etc etc.
Then after salads and herbs u get potatoes and beans or rice idk whatever u prefer, then some eggs and a bit of meat, pork and chicken are cheap asfk, also some sardines - omega 3s and healthy and cheap as fuck.
with 50 bucks you'll live like a kang

75 cent for 800 calories SOUNDS good, but not all calories are equal. if you eat 800 calories of bread you might feel full for two hours, if you eat 800 calories of veggies youll feel full for six or eight hours. a pizza like that will probably only fill you up for a few hours and will make you crave for more.

Yeah, normal human beans eat like 3 times a day. A frozen pizza is more than enough to survive and not feel hungry for 5-6 hours.

Anyways, only eating shit like this will give you horrible diarrhea and at some point cancer, so it is not a great idea anyways.

Jack Wright

Probably, but with a terrible diet. When I was poor I would spend about 30eur/week on groceries.
Diet generally consisted of:
-Cereal, would eat 500g of store-brand cornflakes a week. 1 euro.
-Milk, 2 litre. 1.40eur
-1kg of bananas, 1.20 eur
-1kg pasta, 1eur
-2 jars of pasta sauce, 1.50 eur
-cheap biscuits, great source non-nourishing calories, 2 packs 1 eur
-1kg of high fat mince beef, 7eur
-Frozen beef burgers(4) + buns, maybe 3eur
-Potato Wedges 1kg, 0.80eur
-Cheap frozen Pizzas(2), maybe 2eur
-bread, 1eur
Cheap crisps or tortilla chips, <1eur

That's only about 20eur, would generally spend the rest on spices, butter, and splurges like steak. I have the palate of a 5 year old, but I'm sure you could make healthier, better meals with that budget too.
God bless Aldi also.

Well I would but I need to spend 35 dollars so I can get free shipping. Also

Caleb Thomas

I'm not American, but anyway these are shitty frozen pizzas (which I've only had once). real pizzas from restaurants will probably fill you up for longer. the real problem is craving. fatty cancerous foods like pizza and ice cream will make you crave more regardless of how much you eat. its addictive

Can you survive with 29 dollars worth of food per week in your country?

Shouldn't be too hard. I think it shouldn't be too hard in most countries.. Oatmeal costs like €1,- per kg, rice costs maybe €2,- per kg, even less in bulk.

That. Maybe some frozen chicken or white fish (generic white fish from fishfarms like Tilapia or Pollock is dirt cheap) once a week even for dem proteins and shit.

Mashed with potatoes, slathered in gravy and with plenty of bacon bits, smoked sausage and pickles on the side.

Sometimes. But theres a difference between spending a few hours on a Sunday (slow cooked beef, fresh applesauce, mashed potatoes and red cabbage from scratch for instance..) and getting food on the table.. Then again, we profit from those hours on sunday later in the week because you can freeze stuff like applesauce, gravy and pasta sauce to eat later..

Anthony Anderson

Nolan Foster

On what though? I can't even imagine.. When I'm really busy eating is just a hassle imo. I just pack sandwiches still.. My average lunch hasn't changed in 20 years, (6 slices of bread, some slices of cheese, some slices of pig (ham, sausage or smoked bacon), a dollop of peanut butter and some regular butter to tie it all into sandwiches) and I'm actually befuddled for a minute if the cheese is out in the morning... Fucking hassle man, food.

Xavier Wright
Xavier Wright

Easy, eat curd cheese for breakfast and instant ramen for dinner (lunch is overrated!). And so for the whole week. If the food becomes to repetitive then just buy cheapest bread or anything that is cheap and has some nutrition and eat that.

I used to live like this for 6 months while being on NEET mode. My weekly spendings for food were less than 20 euros.
