CHEAPEST Possible Foods:

  1. Beans $0.99 – 1.49 / lb. dry (cooked beans weigh 3 x dry beans)
  2. Brown Rice ($0.70 per lb dry)
  3. Eggs ($0.99 per dozen)
  4. Vegetables ($0.79 – 1.50 / lb frozen)

How To Salt Food

typically for 1 lb of food i use 2 – 4 pinches of kosher salt

Beans

my favorite beans: black beans. lentils (only take 40 min to cook vs overnight), and pinto

Seasoning (per 1 lb. dry beans):

  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 orange (or any other acid. most food is missing acid)

How To Cook: Leave in crock pot overnight, and season with salt only after cooking! 

Vegetables

Must eat leafy greens 

Fav Cruciferous Vegetables: broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, and cabbage (only $0.69 per head)

How To Cook Frozen Veggies: add seasoning and microwave until done 4 – 10 min

Brown Rice

 eat brown rice, not white rice. White rice has the husk and the essential oils removed.

How To Cook

Eggs

Extremely difficult to cook eggs properly. But if you can master cooking eggs, you can cook anything!

Emoji eggs

eggs and potatoes

best thing ever

Chicken recipe

Roast Chicken

Chicken Soup

Combine Whole chicken with vegetables. Cook 8 hours. Add beans and cooked vegetables. If you want rice or pasta in soup keep in separate container until you are ready to microwave. The pasta will degrade if left in soup container.
