Hi, y'all, I'm mostly looking for advice. I am 20 years old and homeless, and between food stamps and my limited income I struggle to eat well because foods that are cheaper tend to fuel my weight gain. I actually like eating veggies and reduced my carbs by a lot, despite my mostly Japanese food diet, before I became homeless, but now my diet is mostly bread, potatoes, ramen, and cold cuts, all things I was told to avoid due to prediabetes, approaching obesity, and high triglycerides. Still, when I could get 2 cucumbers for $3 or 6 packs of ramen for $3, it's hard to make the healthier choice. Do you have any advice, cheap healthy foods, or anything else to say about it?? Thank you!

One user suggests buying cheap protein like chicken from discount stores, loading up on vegetables, and opting for couscous which is healthier than rice and also inexpensive. Another user recommends eggs, homemade bread, fruits that are on sale, coconut milk, rice, dried beans, frozen veggies, potatoes (white or sweet), and various produce on sale like avocado or peppers. They also suggest making meals like eggs and homemade bread with a few berries for breakfast, smoothies for snacks, and dinner with veggies and rice.
