Chicken at all Albertsons or Wally Worlds are $1.99/lb when not on sale. $1.49/lb when on sale. A weeks worth of protein for $10...and that is if you eat an entire pound of meat in a day.
Beans + rice could feed you for an entire week - $3.00-$4.00
I'm sorry, but if i only ate chicken and rice and maybe a vegetable for every meal, I'd shoot myself in the face.
Why does healthy = no variety? There is a large variety of healthy foods out there.
Eating healthy is only cheaper if you're eating the same shite every single day so you can buy it in bulk. Otherwise, in my personal experience, eating healthy is more expensive than eating unhealthy.
Albiet worth it.
