    I appreciate the effort but next time try not to make it seem so obvious.

    I got accused of being "dribbles" in the Brexit thread.

    I can assure you i am neither dribbles nor PC2 and this is literally the only account I've ever had on this forum.

    I did read PC2 thread and i happen to agree with him.

    Here in the UK i can buy all of these things and live with a very full sumach every single day for a budget of £25 / week.

    Dieing from starvation here in the UK is virtually eliminated.

    Approximately 500 people die in this way per year, and mostly it is old people where they aren't able to digest food properly, or, regretfully, neglect from the care workers (but this is VERY rare).

    It is very rare for a homeless person to starve to death here in the UK because they do have access to food.

    It's sad when so few people agree with you that you need to fabricate a personality just so you don't feel foolish by saying something utterly disproven like "world hunger is a myth." Isn't that right, my very real friend Steve who is sitting right next to me? He concurs.

    Oh, I am not disputing your personal circumstances. I was trying to back up my position that for a relatively low cost it is possible to budget healthy eating for little money almost anywhere. I picked the two most pricey zips on opposite ends of the country and just looked at their weekly sale circulars. I am certain I could do similar almost anywhere.

    Of course, an individual may not want to buy grapes or beans. That's up to an individual. I wasn't providing a meal plan in looking at the local shops. Just picking out what was fairly inexpensive and abundant (such as asparagus currently, for example).

    There will always be variance in budgeting. That is why I think it is important to note relative cost ($10 in Missipppissi is different than $10 in Boston) and the case that extreme poverty that causes hunger/starvation is a matter of people not having any means. Not being "too stupid" to buy rice or seek help as that one poster suggested.

    Maybe this is helpful to someone since you brought up actual meal prep- https://www.eatthismuch.com/diet-plan/2000-calorie/

    I used this site before to get my calories up after I had my son (I kinda lot my appetite). The site is decent at providing a variety of ideas and relative pricing if you need to either lose weight or gain weight.

    Pick Up Limes: https://www.pickuplimes.com/
    Also does excellent recipe ideas and budget meal prep that is health-focused. Often around $3-4 a meal. I used some of their ideas for meals too. Great stuff.





    Might not be relevant to you personally, but worth mentioning should any one reading be interested.

    If you go to pretty much any Walmart in America you'll see fat people using food stamps. Our country has become some kind of twisted circus.

    Never do that. It’s better to stay away from people than to, as you said, fabricate personality. Just be yourself. Eventually there will be always few quality people who will agree with you.

    this was my shop today



    three meals a day, fairly healthy, four days and it will be really nice food

    you would need to be careful the first few times you shop until you have stuff like butter, chicken stock and salt in reserve, i also forgot bags so that was 40p extra

    aldi is either the cheapest or second cheapest supermarket around here but ive just had the beans on toast and they seemed nice
