Menu: Day #11

Cost: $3.57 ($1.22 per meal) Protein: 68g Fat: 79g Carbohydrates: 257g Calories: 1985 Today is about as unhealthy as we get.  There’s very little protein in today’s plan, and not many vegetables either.   Your chicken fried rice should contain peas, carrots, and onions – but not in sufficient quantity to really count as a…

Menu: Day #10

Cost: $3.11 ($1.04 per meal) Protein: 88g Fat: 125g Carbohydrates: 152g Calories: 2014 For dinner, we’ll be making chili.  You should have enough chili for 2 meals per person.     So you’re going to have some leftovers.  I expect you’ll be eating it for dinner on day 12 or day 13. If you didn’t…

Menu: Day #8

Cost: $3.15 ($1.05 per meal) Protein: 101g Fat: 123g Carbohydrates: 149g Calories: 2037 For breakfast, these ingredients line up to make an egg biscuit.  Lunch is a classic, with a ham and cheese sandwich with bean soup.  Then for dinner you’ll be roasting a chicken and eating it with rice.   Don’t forget that you…

Menu: Day #7

Cost: $3.31 ($1.10 per meal) Protein: 93g Fat: 115g Carbohydrates: 157g Calories: 2007 Today’s breakfast is biscuits and jam/butter.  We’re going to use nearly the same trick we used yesterday.  You don’t like biscuits? Make bagels, Yankee.   Unfortunately, they take more time to prepare today.  It’s your call.  Today also has a mix and match…

Grocery List for Week #2

Total ($139) Today’s theme is rice and beans.  Rice is a HUGE staple grain.  It can be a side, an entree, or a dessert.  It built civilizations.  It can be cooked with relatively little intervention.  And, like all dried grains, if you can seal the container then it will last for years.  So before this…
