At $3–4 a pound, chicken breast is an excellent healthy and protein-rich food to eat when you’re on a budget. In half a chicken breast, there are 27 grams of high-quality protein, meaning that it. If you’re filling your pantry, especially if you are on a tight budget, focus on cheap and nutritious foods that have a long shelf life, like rice, apples and peanut butter. You’ll spend less at checkout, and you’ll waste considerably less food at the end of the week.

All price estimates mentioned were good as of. The good news is that cheap eats aren’t necessarily unhealthy. You can cut food costs by eating more meals at home and by making sure they feature some of the healthiest foods from your supermarket. Buying some foods in bulk quantities can save you a lot of money. Grains, such as brown rice, millet, barley and oats, are all available in bulk.

They also keep for a long time, if you store them. Brown Rice. Rice is a staple in many countries because it is so cheap. Brown rice, although it’s a carbohydrate, is healthy and can actually help you lose weight!

A serving of brown rice contains 21% of the daily recommended amount of magnesium, 15% of vitamin B6, 4% of the daily recommended amount of iron and 3.5 grams of fiber. Some foods are also direct sources of melatonin, and consuming them before bed may also be helpful to boost the body’s own production of the hormone. TART CHERRIES. The fruit (and its juice) are a common and trendy natural source of melatonin.In fact, some small studies have shown drinking around 8 ounces of tart cherry juice regularly at night can help improve sleep.

Limit high-sugar ice cream treats, and buy plain yogurt with no added sugars, which tend to pile up in the flavored and fruited varieties. In addition to healthy fats, nut butters contain an impressive amount of protein and fiber, too. Peanut butter boasts a plentiful 8 grams of protein per 2 tablespoons along with 2 grams of fiber.

During Week One of my cash diet, I managed to keep my grocery bill under $20: $17.50, to be exact. That went towards cereal, pasta, rice, eggs, oranges, bananas, almond milk, granola bars, and. Making a grocery list can help people plan and budget, buy nutritious foods, and improve their overall health. However, some conditions can have a notable impact on food choice and the way a.

  • I actually have subscribed to selected channels only and your channel is my favorite. It is always so relaxing and informative to be watching your videos. You are really an Aldi-gal to the core and I can’t say, how much I agree with this, because I’m a Hofer-gal (Austrian name for Aldi, I think I’ve only mentioned this a 1000 times ��). But they really have what it takes to enable a life on a budget. And by the way, I love the pen you’re using in your video. We in Austria haven’t had a monarchy since the end of World War I and I don’t miss it, but I am a big fan of Queen Elizabeth II, she is such a remarkable lady. I’m not a particularly religious person but God may save her! And God may also bless you, your family and your inspiring work which I consider to be art! ��

  • If you enjoy the sausage egg and cheese biscuit I believe it costs $2.50 to $3. but if you order the sausage biscuit it already comes with cheese and then order the side of a round egg the cost for the sandwich now is $2.

  • This comment will probably get lost but here goes.
    Just subscribed. Usually follow your typical “fitspos” like Whitney Simmons, Nikki B etc, but I love the vibes from your channel meg. Feels like such a welcoming presence in your videos and you’re such a warm and inspiring person. It makes me feel so positive watching your videos, thank you ✨

  • You are a great trainer, teacher, ideal and everything for a healthy and funny lifestyle. I really suffer from the issue of budging and thanks for your inspiring.

  • How much is a jar of peanut butter cause i found a green brown dotted egg and was fucking around with it at school and said to one guh to smell it it smells nice but he tryed grabbing it i dont know why maybe to throw it he was with his friends so it exploded all over me and him and smelt like shit so then he slapt me in the face very hard and found me walking in the halls and made me wash it with water and soap and had to dry it thankfully that was it and i paid $5 just for an apolagie so i need to get ripped to be a better fighter

  • I love your channel and this video was so helpful. Would love a lunch version as I struggle for inspiration for lunches to bring to college. Also can’t wait to see those vegan kebabs��❤️

  • I have tried every diet on the planet and nothing worked. The will power needed is too much couldn’t
    do it. The only thing that helped is that I ran across an e-book that made sense and since then I have
    lost over 50 pounds and still counting. Get a free copy of the e-book just e-mail me at
    [email protected] gmail.com and comment on the subject line “I want my free e-book”, that’s it.

  • This is a really good video and I absolutely agree with everything you said. Great video dude from a Canadian living in the Dominican!!

  • Most of these “hacks” seem like overly involved ways to save 20¢. Just order from the value menu, eat at home, or shut the fuck up ����‍♂️

  • I’m not even particularly looking to bulk up, but this guy has presented his information so well, I am very tempted to take advantage

  • Ok some of these are just promotion for the restaurants. “Want to save money at KFC? Just order their regular deals, it’s such a good deal!” Ugh

  • If you know other friends on low budgets…talk about buying pantry stables in “bulk” together. From multi packs of toothbrushes to rice.

  • Great video, informative and interesting.

    Just my personal preference: A stunningly beautiful woman like yourself would look a lot better without so much makeup.

  • These recipes look like pretty good as ideas for meals for those of us well off enough to afford some of the ingredients.

    This wasn’t intended for those living below the line, was it?

  • Sorry but this isn’t a whole weeks meals for two. What about lunches, breakfasts, drinks (like your tea!) and the two other days of the week that you have missed entirely… This is only 5 meals out of 21 hence the low low total.
    I would also question your portion sizes as well, for example on the monday you use 5p worth of brown rice per person. Assuming that this is the 0.79p/1kg bag of rice from Aldi this equates to approx 63g of rice suggested portion size is 75g.

  • Very good videos! I still prefer organics foods and fresh vegetables, so I grow my own organics vegetables and herbs in pots(if you have good organics land in your compound, then grow them in the ground) which are healthier and cheap too!

  • Hallo everyone. I have been wanting a meal plan video for a while you have the best food tips. Thank you Sophie my pen is ready ☕️

  • i thought thid video, was going to be generally refering to super nutrient foods, seeds, potent herbs, Garlic and vitamin C mixed together, organic magnisum providing foods. Little mis leading man, to show all the raw, nutrient food, then goung to costco and Loading up on meats������

  • Whenever I order at Subway, I always order the sub of the day which is only $2.99 and add a double meat for extra $1.50. you can add any meat for the double meat I always get the beef brisket. A regular brisket sub is $6.99. my double meat regular sub with the brisket is only $4.50

  • I just want to say if you eat at Subway Do NOT put spinach on your sub. It isn’t ordered as often as lettuce and other veggies. My daughter and I both got food poisoning from the location inside the Nixa Walmart here in Missouri. Things that aren’t ordered as often evidently are not replaced with fresh product as often. I will NEVER eat at a Subway again even though they gave my money back. Food poisoning is painful in more ways than one…’nuff said.

  • load yourself with carrots, tomatoes and sweet potatoes guys. Carrots can be stored in fridge for nearly a month. Tomatoes go well with everything. And sweet potatoes are nutritious and fulfilling.

  • A pinch of Marjoram, 1/4 cup diced red onions and half a teaspoon of white vinegar mixed in goes a long way to improving tuna. A couple extra carbs but well worth it.

  • Dallas Penn and Rafi Kam (Internets Celebrities) created the Ghetto Big Mac, posted the video on youtube damn near 15 years ago and they did it better than this.

  • ya you may be using 1.50 worth of each ingredient but this is not 1.50 cooking on budget… oat flour/kale/eggs/potatos etc..sometimes even bananas are much more than 1.50

  • Of course she can eat on a tight budget. Shes like 100 lbs and tiny. Shell gut full with a portion of food the size of my thumb. Im a big dude. I need to eat.

  • I guess she never shopped at the 99 cent only store. I can get 3 large sweet potatoes for one dollar. People are shopping at the wrong store!

  • These videos are so misleading. Stop with the “oh they’re only $1.50 a serving!” Tell me how much you spent at the grocery store to buy all the ingredients. A person actually living on a budget doesn’t care how cheap it is per serving, we want to know how much I’ll be spending when I check out. You only used $0.45 of quinoa? A bag of quinoa is like $3.50. I would not be spending $1.29 on a meal, I’d be spending almost $7 to buy all the ingredients, and that’s a big difference for people who live paycheck to paycheck.

  • Tea is a great replacement for soda. Fruit tea, herbal tea, regular tea. Many brands will post out samples of new flavors for free. Homemade vegetable and bone broth is also a great flavourful “drink”.

  • The sad thing is, some people don’t have this kind of money to spare on food. A friend of mine is in hospital after a suicide attempt, due to being completely broke. Her story starts here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/in-debt-and-depressed-help-desperately-needed&rcid=r01-156097093382-e571b3a1a00f4db7&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w

    Obviously, being in hospital, she hasn’t been able to update her own story.. Out of all her friends and family, I’m the only person that has been arsed to help her, lending her money over the past few months… but it still wasn’t enough. All she asked for was for people to help with just €1/2 and no-one could be bothered to do that.

    She ended up losing her job, as the stress of her situation caused her performance to suffer.. by the time she’s out of hospital, she will be homeless. Her parents aren’t helping either… they gifted her aunt €10k for a home remodel, but won’t even help their daughter by co-signing a loan..She was begging in the streets before she tried to kill herself..

    Does this sound like I’m begging for help? Probably.. I don’t care.. she is the best friend I’ve ever known.. She would give any friend in need the shirt off her back, and yet, now that she’s in need of help, everyone but me seems to have turned their back on her. I failed to help her before this, but now.. I’m desperate.. I’ve nearly lost her once, and I don’t want to lose her for good..

    I know no-one who reads this will help, most likely… but if you do.. even €1/2.. thank you so much.. truely..

  • I know it might put me a little over budget, but if I wanted to add a protein to the stew recipe, what protein would you recommend and how would I do it in the context of the lentil stew recipe you show here?

    Also, what kind of pot are you using with the lentil stew recipe? Is it ceramic and enamel? Cast iron and enamel? What brand? And what size or how many quarts?

    Thank you for helping to liberate me from years of frozen dinners and less healthy food!:)
    Keep up the great work!

  • That’s per serving tho, the total price is probably around 5 to 6 bucks. For some items. Canned salmon is around 2ish dollars a can. So it adds up for a family meal

  • Maybe I’m missing something but how does 20p + 24p + 5p + 30p on Tuesday = 40p per person? You used the per person cost then still divided it by 2 anyway?

  • Starting to think I’m the only person in the meal prep community who hates quinoa. I know I could theoretically replace it with a different grain, but like, are all of yall eating quinoa all the time?

  • New subscriber here.. They all look delicious but expensive if you need to buy those spices thats the only thing! I will try many of these recipes thanks for the ideas!

  • You can make the banana pancakes simpler and cheaper:
    One egg, one banana, mush it all up (maybe add water if you wanna thin it out) and fry in a pan like normal. Like she said, the spottier the banana the better!

  • Refreshing to see budget eating vid thats Canadian, im tired of converting american dollars, thanks! (also seeing the same things on the shelves is nice too).

  • FINALLY! Just recently subscribed. So happy to see an actual nutrition video that isn’t only a personal buy video. it all helps, but this is great!

  • Gluten is around 30 cents per 30 grams of protein. Buy flour 2kgs for around $1.80 which is 10% protein so 200 grams of moderately high quality protein (its a complete amino acid profile). Make seitan out of it which removes most of the carbs and leaves just the protein. boom 200grams of protein for $1.80. Im in Australia paying in AUD buying flour in 2kg lots but I saw if you buy it bulk its even cheaper

  • I’m just watching the video but the comments section is jumping! And by jumping I mean b!%@#$*&. Don’t worry, no one is ever good enough, especially in the online world where people can say whatever they want without fear of consequences. You’re doing a fantastic job and as always your videos are really good.

  • McDonald’s grinds human meat in the hamburger and sausages…
    According to Rabbi Abe Finklestein….
    This is on YouTube!
    Take a look, remember when they were caught adding the hamburger filler Pink Slime?
    I can’t say one way or another I don’t eat that crap.
    However we do have thousands upon thousands of people that disappear every year!
    And this Rabbi Finklestein looks Right at the camera and says we sacrifice your children… drink the blood and take the bodies to the slaughter house that we own.
    Wake up! Grow up! Get off your ass! WWG1WGA!

  • Why do some bitch and moan because he didn’t make a short “cliff notes” to the point video? He elaborated a bit, So what? His videos are always on point and explains things a bit. Does that upset the ADHD/ weak minded people that much?? It’s OK, spend a few more minutes and listen to what he or anyone else has to say.

  • Just dont buy fucking supplements u dont need it. People did not need them for 2000 years and i can say they wont need them for another 2000 years! Protein doesnt make u big!

  • Hey man you forgot to meantion tuna,milk and whey isolate bars, and jerky for low fat high protein although jerky a little high in sodium but for carbohydrates mass gainer, bread, tortillas, bagels, and rice are a great source of carbs last but not least unsolouble fiber is found high in cereal My prefered brand is simply fiber at 14g per serving which does really well with soluble fiber wanted to say that canned beans are a bad source due to the fact that it only offers 6g of protein at 550mg of sodium which is a bad ratio

  • Hey for all you people on here telling details on how disgusting the food is that us poor people have to eat. When shit gets real and it comes down to my children going to bed hungry or eating caged chickens that eat each other guess what bitches??? Bye bye chicky. Remember this the next time you decide to open your self rightoues mouths and judge people for the choices they are sometimes forced to make, don’t forget there are many families eating out the local dumpster tonight scavenging through your fucking shit paper to feed themselves.. The only thing disgusting here, is you idiots that snurl your nose an point your little free range fingers thinking your better. Fucking ASSHOLES

  • I really liked the video. Good for inspiration. I would eat more veggies with my meals. Salad has a low nutritional value. Maybe Frozen green beans or spinach, that is what I like to use.

  • Great video, informative and interesting.

    Just my personal preference: A stunningly beautiful woman like yourself would look a lot better without so much makeup.

  • be honest, I’m going every 2 weeks on local food pantry at church to get dry beans, raw honey, oats, brown rice to make more healthy plant-based food. That way I’m not shopping a lot at the store these items and saving money…

  • I wish I could eat good but all my mom literally buys is junk food… I’m really trying to get in shape man… I’m 6’0 260 pounds and I’m 15… id look slim if I went down to 230 cuz I’m a big person if that makes sense

  • I am lucky enough to live in Nebraska where good beef is readily available. It took us a couple of years to get on our feet financially, but now we buy a half a cow every year. It’s enough for my family of 6. It is the cheapest way to get good beef but it does come with the cost up front.

  • tip for saving money on coffee… Make it yourself. Even if you buy a 500 espresso machine you would still save 400 in the first year.

  • Loved this �� very helpful! Me and my partner spend a more a week and still have to pop to the shop for other bits we forgot! Looking forward to seeing the making of the meals:)

  • I’ve seen a tonne of meal prep vids and this is by far and away the best one I’ve come across in terms of educating on keeping things interesting and flexible. Most of the bro plans out there are so rigid and flavorless. Thank christ for you.

  • Great Video! really appreciate the tips! Diet is the biggest struggle I currently have and working on balancing budget, convenience and health is the biggest step to looking your best!

  • I really really really enjoy your channel but why do you always have your mouth open in the thumbnail? It puts me off I cannot even explain why! More thumbnails with mouth closed please, but honestly I really enjoy the content:) x

  • Keep away from that red lid peanut butter. Each time you want to use it you have to stir the hell out of it (because it’s natural and has oil at the top) and it’s rock hard! Takes ages.

    Also baby potatoes are better. Only takes 15mins in the oven. The big potatoes take around 45mins to cook.

  • That bikini pic make me click as you expect click bite body for click you cheet for your good good frends don’t show your bikini pic it is bullshit

  • 2 pounds (1kg) of chicken breasts is 3$ in Serbia. If you buy whole chicken it’s like 1,5$ per 2 pounds. Prices here are very cheap comparing to Canada and the US.

  • Chicken thighs oatmeal almonds eggs eggs peanutbutter VEGTABLES beand frozen fruit ground turkey sweet potatoes it’s not hard or really that expensive

  • Joanna, about how much money do I need to budget on a tight budget each month to eat this way on a budget, on average? $100? $150? $200? Thank you.

  • Yes, first time here. No need to excuse yourself. Enjoyed every bit of the 17 minutes and 40 seconds of footage. Absolutely impressed and pleased with the content… tips, advice, recommendations and overall sharing of your knowledge which was/is educational, practical, and realistic. Exactly the type of information I was looking for and need. Both of my thumbs up high in the air. Thank you very much. Oh and… sorry… the usual male stereo typical comment “gorgeous, wow, awesome figure, whatta woman etc etc” sorry… I’m one of those… BUT thank you, I mean it, your efforts weren’t/aren’t in vain. I will be following your tips and what I learned to improve my health over all. Oh, by the way, I liked AND subscribed.

  • Super Like. Enriched food not mean rich food. Read here The top 11 food for body building http://www.growactive365.com/2018/03/the-top-11-foods-for-body-building.html

  • Elo! I hope you find this useful! Feel free to share your foodie frugal recipes in the comments! Don’t forget to give the vid a ���� so I know you enjoy this content �� Honestly, Aldi has made like a lot easier for me ����xxxxxxx

  • New sub here an I really like the fact that you reply to all the comments that have asked questions. Also your desserts look amazing I am hooked, I can’t wait to try them.

  • I am going to love this whole series from the meal planning to meal videos. Pleeeease do this regularly �� thank you for sharing x

  • Always be careful about how much fish you’re eating canned tuna can have a lot of mercury. If you eat a can like that a day you’re going to hit the maximum recommended quite quickly, so make sure to vary it.

  • Some one from Canada at a Canadian store for once lol but ya 3 pack Greek yogurt for 11 dollars can’t go wrong
    Costco just has the most annoying long as lines lol

  • as far as costco tuna, it might be cheaper at the grocery store however, the cans at costco are larger with more volume. there’s the price difference. i disagree with you sir, costco has the best bulk price vs the grocery store. lets take steak…costco is on average $25 for 7lbs of lean top sirloin, believe its prime.

  • I disagree with equal quality on breads and such but other than that yeah your right, I go for store brand a lot now when on a budget. Honestly I can afford to get everything I like, but then I can really build up a savings, so I tighten up my food shopping when I want to try and build my account up a little, otherwise I could spend 600 bucks a month on food, I hate when I do that.

  • Honestly chicken breast 8 bucks then I buy frozen veggies which each bag is 1 and I buy rice packs for 2 eggs and milk peanut butter all usually cost me about 50 bucks last me for 2 weeks so I spend a total of 100 a month so that’s pretty cheap.

  • Testimony,I’m using this medium to thank Dr banlogun for bringing back my husband after he left me with my kids for 5months with his love spell,feel free to contact him for any kind of help his email: lordbanlogun gmail.com

  • I’ve always struggled with losing weight because I can never afford to buy expensive healthy food. Everything healthy is so much more exepensive

  • What a wonderful video! Btw, its usefulness extends far from bodybuilding. Anyone who finds himself cheapskating for whatever reason (me, I like to give myself a sabbatical now and then, saving some money, and then living a year or two off of your bank account w/o going to work every day). You will have to penny pinch, and this nutritional tactics that you describe in this video totally applies, trust me, I’ve done it, not with Costco, but similar in general. Great job, highest praise. Very practical, all of this.

    P.S. Be careful with dollar store food a lot of it tends to be farmed and Chinese, may be unhealthy. I tend to avoid buying food there other than spices, tomato paste, and pasta, though pasta is just as cheap at Trader Joe and/or ALDI. The latter is unbeatable on prices they beat Wallmart hands down but the ingredients are often sketchy.

  • If you like buying organic food and your opinion is that it is better then you should. Just know that it is not more nutritious; the taste is 100% objective; depending on where you get your organic food from it may not be sustainable and may uses chemicals you don’t normally think of as organic; you are also paying about 30% more for no reason other then the fact they put an organic sticker on it.

  • Brilliant video, so handy, definitely do more of these ❤ Do you know whats in season in terms of fruit and veg? Do you use whats ‘in season’ I think i need to make a seasonal list because i have no idea what is best to eat and when ����������

  • what i want to know is how many times you work out a day compared to the amount of meals per day how many days out of a week do you work out can you only eat one meal a day and fill the rest with protein shakes working out after each meal im new to this and most articles are one or the other either what to eat or how to work out its never both im a carnival worker so i have to lift large pieces of heavy metal alot and i just want to be able to do this with out struggling so much

  • This specific cholesterol guidebook “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is not just premium quality medicine but reasonably priced too. I started to utilize this adhering to my doctor`s recommendations to lessen my blood cholesterol. I got it for over Two weeks. It is great! The discomfort has vanished and my energy level has grown in each day. I am gaining better results on my labs..

  • I loved this video! I always get stuck in a meal rut so this gave me some good ideas and saving money is always good. I look forward to more like this hopefully �� xx ✌️

  • WAY TOO MANY DUDED eyeing each other with apparent lustful intent in the opening of this video. Stopped the video and entered the comment arena to state why I am departing. TV already bombards We, the People relentlessly with Gay-promoting tripe to the point of more than nausea. I’ll be darned if I shall observe it on the Tube of You.

  • It’s great to prep ingredients if you have time to combine them every time you go to eat. I totally have to prep Sunday and freeze. I’m a teacher so I have to be in and out the door constantly. Wish I had time to cook every time!

  • OZ was very touchy feeling before Social Distancing became the order of the Wuhan SARS 2.0 era….�� $20 a day or what is the duration?

  • Minute 2:51 I would change the jam for a more nutritious food as for example peanut butter the one is label peanut and salt. (No more ingredients). Or maybe buy some sheets of some seaweed. Also, Minute 2:07 dented can! Instead of can food, cook beans like; lentils, garbanzos u other to cook with your rice or any small grain to improve the protein quality. Add parsley or cilantro, something green. One cup of legumes will give you tree cups once it is cook, same is with rice. Better avoid can foods too much sodium and preservatives they are harmful on the long run they make you sick, avoid buying cans especially if they are dented (usually those are the one marked down) they could contain the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It is rare, but its toxin can kill you. I do like the rest of the video!

  • Joanna, about how much money do I need to budget on a tight budget each month to eat this way on a budget, on average? $100? $150? $200? Thank you.

  • You might also check your local farmer’s market. We have several that are each open two days a week. The food is in season and local and most growers will happily chat with you about their growing methods. I’ve found their pricing comprable to what I pay at the grocery store only it hasn’t been shipped in near freezing trucks (and rot a day or two after getting them home).

  • Just remember people, when it comes to eating your fruits and veggies, non organic is infinitely better than not eating them. Organic vs non organic isn’t cut and dry, there’s negatives and positives to BOTH. When it comes to the big picture, a good hypothetical here, if everyone had to eat only organic then we’d have billions die to starvation. Growing organic takes up a huge amount of space and has a lot more CO2 emissions. I don’t know where this obsessive idea that eating organic is the best idea came from, but it kinda has to stop. Do your reading/research!!

  • Great advice, dude. I let myself go and got all fat. Now I’m eating like this guy but lower carbs. Lost 15lbs in 2 months. Fouad, you should try some smoked paprika, opens a hole new world of flavors.

  • pea protien tastes awful in smoothies ect. i use it in chillis or anything that has strong flavors that will cover the pea protien flavour.

  • Chicken thighs oatmeal almonds eggs eggs peanutbutter VEGTABLES beand frozen fruit ground turkey sweet potatoes it’s not hard or really that expensive

  • It all depends on your area too. My health counselor was shocked when I walked through our grocery stores with her on the phone and told her the prices for some of the things she always recommends as cheap. That size of off brand canned salmon is 3.50 here, for instance. Some things are cheaper, but the proteins are always twice as much as these lists. There is also the part where most of us can’t afford a dinner that costs $20 for our family, even if there is leftovers for the next day. Can’t hurt to get some ideas you can tailor to suit your family from these videos though:)

  • Here in Kansas we’ll smoke a fat hooterdog and eat like a hostage who just got let free in grandma’s kitchen after smoking a fat hooter dog I shit you not Bubba thanks. Yours truly a Kansan high as shit

  • What about lunch and breakfast? I’d love to see a full weeks shop. We seem to be spending so much it can’t work it out family of 4

  • I love to watch all of your videos I learn so much from you and your explanation is on the money and I tried to take your advice and try to make it properly like I said I’m very Multi Task I love to Try everything….

  • What about making your own bread? Just use water, flour, yeast, and a pinch of salt, let it sit overnight to rise and then bake. You could get whole wheat, or all purpose for like 3 dollars for a 5 pound bag or 10 pounds for 4 bucks. That 5 pound bag can go a long way and using these simple ingredients won’t make you feel like you’re adding anything processed or refined to your meal plan.

  • Your not supposed to eat protein per pound of total body weight. Its actually per pound of lean muscle. You don’t need to include fat weight in this so you need to calculate how much muscle weight you have and eat accordingly. Your body also doesnt need as much protein in the bulk. Being in a calorie surplus is what adds the muscle not just protien. You need 1-1.2 grams when your cutting to minimize muscle loss while in a calorie deficit.

  • I’m so glad to see you recommend 1g of protein per pound of LEAN MASS. I see so many recommending 1g per pound of body weight, and that much protein makes me hate my diet.

  • Check at local fruit and vegetable store…get to know the family run businesses local to you. Ask the owner about buying a box of seasonal stuff on the cheap. Ask them if they can help you save money by including items such as the outside leaves from lettuce, bruised fruit etc. Learn to home dry to preserve what you have. Grow herbs as indoor greenery.

  • Also I love the idea of buying “different colours” with fruit and veg, you are right, different colours give you different vitamins. I will go by that from now on. So simple yet so helpful

  • With $20 I just can buy half gallon of milk, a dozen of eggs and a few apples! I’m single and I spend more money on my food than my sis who has two kids. Quality food is more expensive.

  • This is interesting thanks. Personally I like to pack in a load more veg but maybe you’ve got that in your snacks / lunch. Love the planner I’m going to get me one of them

  • I’ve had a YouTube account for many, many years now and I rarely subscribe and make any comments if at all. Wonderful video, very informative and top notch production. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future videos.

  • for y’all saying she is over budget, it depends where you live on how much the ingredients are, but she said its per serving, not ingredient. therefore, if you have 3 meals, that’s about $4.50 a day or around $32 a week. thats incredibly reasonable price and you can even go over that to experiment more. you just have to educate yourself and find the best prices

  • I’m not even particularly looking to bulk up, but this guy has presented his information so well, I am very tempted to take advantage

  • A whole chicken 9$ lmao, I would go broke in an instant, chicken is the cheapest meat here in portugal u can get a whole one for less than 2€ (about $2)

  • Enjoyed this vid. My diet is basically ground beef, pork steaks, rice, pasta, porridge and sometimes lamb organs.
    I always throw the rice in the pan with the pork once it’s cooked so the pork juice gets sucked in by the rice
    I add firecracker sauce to my beef and pasta at night too for some good flavour

    I never thought about lentils before and I’d never even heard of the gironda beans or whatever theyre called but will defoz have a look now as I’m messing around with my macros atm

    Anyway thanks for the new ideas and you look smoking hot in the thumbnail but i figure you already been told that a ton��

  • I know he’s a doctor and he likes to focus on health. But, none of these taste good. You realize kids got to eat this too and we can’t just let them starve or force food down their throat.

  • Hey for all you people on here telling details on how disgusting the food is that us poor people have to eat. When shit gets real and it comes down to my children going to bed hungry or eating caged chickens that eat each other guess what bitches??? Bye bye chicky. Remember this the next time you decide to open your self rightoues mouths and judge people for the choices they are sometimes forced to make, don’t forget there are many families eating out the local dumpster tonight scavenging through your fucking shit paper to feed themselves.. The only thing disgusting here, is you idiots that snurl your nose an point your little free range fingers thinking your better. Fucking ASSHOLES

  • I need more self control lol made it worst that you’re ginger fuego hot for real. anyway back to my original search.
    EDIT: I was wrong I think, still hot though

  • I really enjoy your channel because you dont sound super scripted. I feel like you are authentic on camera and that is hard to find in youtubers.

  • this was a really good video, i dont usually learn this much from videos ever. i actually went past a local farm today and a sign outside said “join csa” and i was wondering what that was and now i know! such a relatively straightforward video but this was 10/10 tank u

  • I love this woo woo salesman. Gives her $20 on air. Keeps bringing it up. As if she’s some charity case. Grabs her hand?! Omfg no, creep factor over 9000!!!!!

  • I’m kinda lucky in that working out kills my appetite so I can eat the same boring “bro foods” every day and be fine with it but it’s definitely turned every meal time into a chore.

  • too bad i’m in europe, someone needs to make one for the most prominent european chains in the eurozone orso

    that’s gonna be a shit ton of homework:D

  • Who buys $13/lb MEAT?! No, that’s too fancy for my. I keep it under $4, most of the time under $2. Please don’t shop at Whole Foods then give advice of eating on a budget. Most people can’t afford those kind of stores nor have access. There are plenty other places to find tips on eating healthy on a budget. ANYWHERE BUT HERE WOULD BE BETTER!

  • When I go food shopping I always get whatever fruit and veggies are in sale. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but there isn’t a fruit or vegetable that I don’t like so this method works for me. It is a really good way to save money, have variety and even try new things. Great tip!

  • I can’t tell you how helpful this is! I am definitely copying your meal plan. Who doesn’t love “mouldy veg” �� It’s amazing how cheap you have got this healthy meal plan?? I find I spend so much money on food. Can’t wait for the what I eat in a week

  • Holy CRAP!!! Where in the world do you live? That is expensive as HELL!! You should move to Iowa, dude! $7.99 for OATMEAL?! You can get more than that for three bucks here in Iowa. Protein shakes you can get for $20. And I thought $5 for two of those PB jars was bad… Egg whites: $4! Potatoes are $3 for a five pound bag… Good grief, man! How do you guys live where you are? How can you afford even the simple food. $8 a pound for ground beef?! We can get half a whole cow for around $100. Come to Iowa, we are a lot less expensive and in the middle of everywhere!!

  • Good shit the only nit-to-pick is that all the mayo and sauces and such add a lot of fatty KCal as well… not enough to derail the diet but if one finds they are getting tubby on this then first move would be to cut back how much sauce they are adding

  • FYI: your muscles can only absorb 25-35 grams of protein per meal. If you go beyond 35 grams, your body simply won’t make any use of the access protein.

  • A whole chicken 9$ lmao, I would go broke in an instant, chicken is the cheapest meat here in portugal u can get a whole one for less than 2€ (about $2)

  • You talk too much, stop giving out your outlets name and prices etc dude ppl outside your country are also watching this just stick to the point and name out the foods only we are mature enough to know where to buy them from!.

  • I try to avoid seafood as much as possible, at least ever since I found out the dangers of mercury, seafood allergies, undercooked fish, etc.

  • Refreshing to see budget eating vid thats Canadian, im tired of converting american dollars, thanks! (also seeing the same things on the shelves is nice too).

  • Do you rephrase the chicken after you cook it or do you just leave it and the frigerator for the whole week I’m just curious because I did not know that it would stay good for that long but if it will then thou would definitely help me with my meal prepping

  • I was looking for a Cheap Protein video and found this. Thank you for the great info presented. BTW you’re also incredibly beautiful!!:-)

  • Loved this video I am needing to add more protein to my diet and most meats dont taste as good as they used to so thank you for the other suggestions!

  • 20 tips from Joanna Soh Timestamps and Too long did not watch version.

    1 0:50 Forget about Brands! Buy Generic/Store brands it’s all the same. Saves money.
    2 1:41 Buy sale items (hur dur). Go late at night, almost closed, will find most of these items at that time apparently.
    3 2:27 Buy in bulk
    4 3:14 Buy Frozen Vegetables
    5 4:00 Buy more vegetables and put more in meals, cheaper than meat and such!
    6 4:28 Find cheap protein, like eggs, chicken fillets, fish, etc.
    7 5:17 Buy whole foods, usually cheaper and healthier.
    8 6:02 Don’t worry about organic if you’re on a budget.
    9 7:24 Buy Seasonal fruits and vegetables
    10 7:51 Shop local markets, sometimes much cheaper
    11 8:27 Keep it simple and ‘eat like the locals’. Local foods are generally cheaper than imported. IE: Milk and cheese are pretty cheap in west, toffuu is cheap in asia.
    12 9:13 Avoid impulse buying, buy things that are needed, avoid simply wants. Make a list, go in, get your stuff, get out.
    13 9:46 Cook in bulk. Saves money and time. Stick in fridge and freezer.
    14 10:15 Learn to store food properly. IE: Freezing and such.
    15 11:01 Keep meals simple. Complicated meals take too long, costs too much, stressful, etc.
    16 11:46 Cut junk food out completely/as much as possible. Healthier and cheaper if can be replaced with healthier alternatives.
    17 12:24 Gift cards, coupons, pointscards, etc.
    18 12:55 Don’t buy water, ie bottles of water.
    19 13:12 Quantity doesn’t always equal quality. Certain foods fill you up longer than others, ie: (some kind of bread vs white bread, couldn’t understand her.)
    20 14:05 Mix ‘unhealthy’ with ‘healthy’ if healthy is more expensive. ie: Brown rice with white rice in the same dish.

  • Gotta give me a microwave only meal plan and a meal plan i can bring to field ops lol (military living in barracks, with BAS) anyone got tips?

  • Salmon…Steak…Eggs…Oats…Beans…Peanut butter…Honey… cinnamon…Broccoli..Spinach…You can eat most CLEAN FOOD that doesnt have crap like sugar…

    Sleep, water and other factors need to be addressed…Hope the quick words helped..:8)

  • I love to watch all of your videos I learn so much from you and your explanation is on the money and I tried to take your advice and try to make it properly like I said I’m very Multi Task I love to Try everything….

  • pea protien tastes awful in smoothies ect. i use it in chillis or anything that has strong flavors that will cover the pea protien flavour.

  • Love every single one of your videos and enjoy watching them. Most genuine and official guy I can find when it comes to meal prepping. Unlike that guy Evan centaponi he eats like a fkn weirdo and says dumb shit��. keep em coming boss. Our gains depend on you!! No b.s

  • Great video! Too bad black beans didn’t make your list though considering they cost about.05 cents/gram of protein and taste better than garbanzo beans and lentils.

  • Hi fed up with all the fat reduction techniques you tried and couldn’t identify the right solution.I’ve the answer for your needs, type in Google as: “Hack2LossWeight” to get the entire hacks about weight loss.

  • Want cheap pancakes? Mix 1 cup of flour, 1 cup milk, 1 egg add small pinch of salt.. BAM cheap pancakes. Flip over when you start seeing small bubbles popping.

  • Thanks again Meg for mentioning vegan foods!! I didn’t watch this video when it first came out because I assumed you’d be only talking about meat, but was super pleasantly surprised.

  • Holy CRAP!!! Where in the world do you live? That is expensive as HELL!! You should move to Iowa, dude! $7.99 for OATMEAL?! You can get more than that for three bucks here in Iowa.

    Sesame paste
    Ponzu
    Black bean sauce
    Spicy bean paste

  • During the lockdown I quit smoking and started lifting a bit. I will never be a professional body builder but i like the results I am seeing, and am starting to take it more seriously. These videos are very helpful easy to understand, and you seem to genuinely want to help and teach people. Great job and Thank you!

  • All of your videos are SO incredible helpful!!! Thank you!! �� on another note, I’m dying to know what foundation you use, it’s so smooth and not cakey!

  • I’ve had a YouTube account for many, many years now and I rarely subscribe and make any comments if at all. Wonderful video, very informative and top notch production. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future videos.

  • to really save money, visit 2-3 grocery stores. specials are all online and usually next to each other, ends up cheaper than costco. Get dried beans pennies per servings and don’t forget tuna has a lot of mercury and that is toxic.

  • Some one from Canada at a Canadian store for once lol but ya 3 pack Greek yogurt for 11 dollars can’t go wrong
    Costco just has the most annoying long as lines lol

  • I tend to stick with tons of frozen veggies, chicken, tuna, Greek yogurt, cheese and eggs for everything and potatoes. I only meal prep 4 meals at a time

  • Your not supposed to eat protein per pound of total body weight. Its actually per pound of lean muscle. You don’t need to include fat weight in this so you need to calculate how much muscle weight you have and eat accordingly. Your body also doesnt need as much protein in the bulk. Being in a calorie surplus is what adds the muscle not just protien. You need 1-1.2 grams when your cutting to minimize muscle loss while in a calorie deficit.

  • Elo! I hope you find this useful! Feel free to share your foodie frugal recipes in the comments! Don’t forget to give the vid a ���� so I know you enjoy this content �� Honestly, Aldi has made like a lot easier for me ����xxxxxxx

  • I don’t get the flexitarian thing…I mean once a week is as much meat I ate before I went vegan when I was eating regularly. Maybe that’s not much where you’re from but in Germany it is basically just a omnivore diet but what do I know. Loved the video anyway ��

  • This is helpful I must start meal planning to save on food waste as well as money, thanks for sharing…… my only thing to point out, my hubby wouldn’t be full on having soup for dinner lol

  • did no one think it was suspicious when one of the 1st things she said was “my 2 year old son likes to eat so much he’s so expensive”..? he’s…two…. does he eat more than your grown husband im so confused.

  • This is great, thanks for the breakdown. However, it seems a little light on fiber. What are your favorite cheap sources of fiber? I’m a carrots and celery man myself.

  • The truth is a healthy eating plan that has worked very well for me personally, I hope everyone achieves their goal and for those who want to know what my weekly plan is, leave your mail to send it to you.

  • Never cheap out on chicken! A lot of unsafe chicken around. Bell And Evans has frozen breaded chicken breast tenders, organic with no anti-biotics. 12 ounce package is good for two meals and costs about 8 or 9 dollars. And I’m leery of tuna since it contains mercury. I usually go with skinless and boneless sardines.

  • Why do some bitch and moan because he didn’t make a short “cliff notes” to the point video? He elaborated a bit, So what? His videos are always on point and explains things a bit. Does that upset the ADHD/ weak minded people that much?? It’s OK, spend a few more minutes and listen to what he or anyone else has to say.

  • Lee, I wish I had White eggs package here in Brazil. Rsrs it doesn’t exist here. But thank you for your tips. In the USA I will do as you said. Great stores, or local groceries.

  • New follower here. Enjoying your vids. Though you paid $9 for a uncooked chicken, isnt it cheaper (though more time consuming since youre at the market) to just buy a Roasted chicken at Costco (about $5). Either way..love your content; keep it going!

  • This was an awesome video, esp the meal prep. I’m just a hobbyist weightlifter but train martial arts and extreme sports, always looking at these type of videos to fuel myself. Thank you!

  • My budget bodybuilding grocery list at Costco consists of the following:

    Rotisserie chicken (much cheaper than frozen breasts or drumsticks)
    Eggs
    Tuna
    Ground beef (frozen is cheaper than fresh)
    Frozen veggies
    Family size of salad greens
    Brown rice
    Quinoa

  • I am going to love this whole series from the meal planning to meal videos. Pleeeease do this regularly �� thank you for sharing x

  • These look like some well balanced, delicious meals!

    My only criticism is the more expensive ingredients. I’m assuming those were on hand already? If a person can shop by the month rather than by the week they might be able to save up for maple syrup and vanilla. Shopping by the week, those items would make it a harder challenge to stay on budget.

  • I loved this video! I always get stuck in a meal rut so this gave me some good ideas and saving money is always good. I look forward to more like this hopefully �� xx ✌️

  • We have a large family (me, my wife and 5 teens… plus their friends) so we cook a LOT. We’ve pretty much given up the slow cooker in favor of the electric pressure cooker, same outcome in 1/10th the time.
    But for the lean meats, I still prefer the stovetop. We all like the following, and it only takes about half an hour:
    Sauté onion/garlic first, then throw in the meat and brown with a lil’ salt/pepper/paprika (cut up or ground turkey/chicken or both), then add equal parts low-sodium chicken stock and drinkable white wine, then turn the heat up and boil down until almost no liquid left (really drives the flavor into the meat, and comes out really tender).
    This works for one pound of meat or ten pounds, which is good when there’s a dozen hungry teens waiting in the kitchen for dinner!
    Let me know if anyone try’s it and likes it.

  • I’ll be old enough to get a job next year and I honestly can’t wait. I’ve been wanting to eat healthy for a while but I can’t afford it and obviously I still live at home so I just have to deal with what my mom buys. Every time I try to talk to her about getting/eating healthier she just laughs and shuts me down.
