Default Economic Diet/Nutrition

Hello I was hoping people could share their favorite Ideas for healthy and cheap Diets and dishes. I live in kansas where we have pretty cheap food. 2.50 usd eggs for example. I try to live on about 30-40 dollars a week in food so I try to stretch everything as far as I can.

I'll start
My favorite recipe at the moment, is a lentil, Onion, Red Potato soup with chicken broth.

a roughly 4-6 gallon pot costs about 20 dollars.

green peas and brown rice are complete proteins when together. chicken broth is good, chicken liver is cheap. eggs are good. lentils and beans are your friends.

This is probably not what you were asking, but beans, brown rice and other grains can be sprouted to significantly increase the nutrients and protein content.

The whole idea is that grains are not meant to be ingested, and therefore contain natural chemicals to prevent animals and humans from digesting the nutrients, as digestion would render them useless for the purpose of growing a plant. So instead they evolved natural defenses against sprouting/growing while inside an animal's digestive tract, and instead only release those nutrients when they are in an ideal environment (such as being "shat" out with moisture and oxygen). Once sprouted, the nutrients become bio-available.

So you can significantly increase the nutrition from grains through sprouting.

Another good reason is that brown rice contains GABA, which is a type of amino acid that bodybuilders pay top dollar for in the form of supplements, as it promotes the creation of lean muscle mass.

There's tons of internet resources to tell you how to sprout grains, and which ones you should/should not sprout.

But I sprout all of my brown rice and most of my beans.

Oh, and because sprouting beans makes them more easily digestible, you significantly decrease the gaseousness of beans.

White rice is ideal before or after training.

When you eat what is as important as what you eat overall.

the chemical you are talking about is phytase which attaches to minerals. However there is loads of conflicting research on the overall impact and how the body deals with this....i would say this is not the place to jibber jabber stuff that has a mixed consensus. I would probably agree it is prbably better to sprout em.....
