    Maybe if you find a shop where restaurants get their stuff. A huge bag of rice or pasta, big can of mixed veggies, huge cans of salmon, eggs. Something along those lines.

    sam's:

    3lb bag of salmon filets = $18
    10lb bag of frozen raw chicken breasts = $20
    4.5lb deli cut turkey breast = $7

    that leaves you $5 for veggies and carbs?

    the 10lb bags are 15bucks at the sams near my house.
    substitute that 3lb bag of salmon for something cheaper. tuna?
    50 bucks a week should be plenty, but it all depends on what your intake looks like. ie, how much will you eat in a day?
    sams also has a huge ass bag of frozen broccoli for around 5 bucks, i always get one when i'm over there :yum:

    Grow them in your yard.


    Or take the $6 that was left over and buy 6 bags of frozen greens, that'll last a week easily.

    You could buy about 12lbs of steak, and steal your protein powder.

    if you don't mind doing the work I would probably buy a couple of whole chickens and cutting them up. otherwise it would be hard to get cheap, decent quality protein. for $50.

    fuck it, just raise chickens in your yard too, and get a dairy cow, spend that 50 dollars on feed and an axe for when your ready to off one of them for a meal.
