Interesting. Great question. I live in San Francisco and have access to the best grocery store in the world. Do you have a grocery store where you can get fresh, bulk legumes and grains? The cheapest way to live, I am convinced, and the healthiest, is to get a rice cooker, cook brown rice or barley or millet or quinoa, and mix that with tons of vegetables. Invest in a bottle of olive oil or flax oil, and some salt and garlic. If you can afford it, feta cheese. Here are some ideas:
mix cooked quinoa with chopped, raw celery. Season with chopped olives and fresh lemon juice. Grated garlic if you want. Voila. It's delicions.
Or cook whatever you want in the rice cooker - brown rice, quinoa, millet, mung beans, whatever you want - and when it's done, TURN OFF THE HEAT, then throw in spinach, kale, chard, parsley, or any combination of those things. Heck, try broccoli. Also, put in feta cheese and grated garlic. Put the lid back on and let the greens wilt and the cheese melt. Then eat it. It's delicious.
If you are really dirt-poor, though, you can find greens on sale and just eat them with rice and salt. Olive oil is pricey - around ten bucks. I'm telling you, a rice cooker - a crappy cheap one is good enough - is like 14 dollars.
PS try unflavored gelatin. Sugar free jello is kinda expensive. I eat a whole batch when I make a batch - it's a juge bowl of it for 60 calories - and it makes me feel like crap and I am scared of the chemicals. But try unflavored. It doesn't taste that good, but at least you are eating. Sometimes that's enough. Just to be eating.
