I feel so extremely disgusting. I am so malnourished and I hate my body. I have no energy and I hate living like this. I’m extremely unhealthy. I have no access to a gym or healthy food because I’m extremely broke and can’t find a job. I feel trapped. In order to eat healthy I need money to buy healthy food and in order to have money I need a good paying job. No good paying job will accept me and all my money from my shitty part time job goes to cheap unhealthy food because healthy food is expensive and transportation to school.
I know how hard it is to eat well when you are poor. I spent the last 5 years homeless because of low paying jobs. Now I have a place to live but haven't been able to find work for months. One thing I learned is to never compromise on food. There are places to buy relatively cheap and nutritious food. I survived on less than $4,000 in 2021. It may not be easy but it can be done. Try to stay away from too many caned and microwave foods. They are high in salts and bad colesterol. Eggs are cheap and good for you. There are cheap cuts of red meat. They are less tender but can be prepared in ways that help. Beef liver is relatively cheap and extremely nutritious. Pasta is filling but offers little nutrition. Rice and beans are cheap and offer vitamins and minerals. Beans have an added level of protein. Many green vegetables are affordable and extremely beneficial. Also economical and extremely good for you are fermented foods like kraut. Flour tortillas are an economical alternative to bread and usually have fewer additives and preservatives.
wow wow wow I needed this response, I’m gonna purchase those things and stick to those foods because I can’t keep living like this. Thank you so much!
let me know if you need recipes. I love to cook. I know how hard it is to find good cheap food, but it's out there.
