EAT HEALTHY CHEAP: Tips to Save Money on Food (Do NOT Eat Like a Broke Ass College Student)

I just found this health related video on YouTube … and thought you might enjoy it!

youtube.com/watch?v=mi7og-RGFb4%3Ff%3Dvideos%26app%3Dyoutube_gdata

ask your Q on FB- www.facebook.com FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER- twitter.com MY OTHER CHANNEL JUST FOR WOMEN www.youtube.com FREE GUY FAT LOSS PROGRAM- fatasstobaddass.com ALL MY VIDEOS! http I know what its like to have to eat on a budget. Despite an awesome scholarship and good job, I was a broke ass college student. I blame it on the wine and women. Mainly the women though. Those damn support payments Whatever the reason, here is the BEST guide to saving YOUR money at the grocery store, to maximize the amount of high quality food you eat, without exploding your bank account. When shopping smart, even if you are bulking, you can spend less than -60 a week with high quality food. TOP TIPS 1. Shop for the deals on the meat. Every week at all the grocery stores, meat varies in price. Sometimes chicken breast is .99 a lb sometimes its .99 a lb, you have to pay attention to the sales and strike while the iron is hot. Stock that shit up in the freezer 2. JOIN a large discount retail store like COSTCO, Sam’s Club or Trader Joes. These warehouse facilities sell Olive Oil, Peanut Butter, Tuna and Egg Whites for FAR cheaper than anywhere else. Buying in BULK always saves you money. 3. When it comes to meat, which is the most expensive thing to buy, look for large cuts of meat on sale that you can butcher yourself. Also ask the local butcher for last-date meat discounts. Chop it up and freeze the rest, you’ll save A LOT of money this way. 4. When it comes to produce like vegetables

Fantastic video as I am hoping to go to Uni at the end of Summer.
What is your opinion on fish, though? Treat it the same as meat and get deals? I always find fish to be cheaper, healthier and packed wit protein if you buy the right kind.

@sass9507 Dried fruit usually has additives and is mostly sugar…. Brown rice would be good with the beans

@sass9507 Dried fruit usually has additives and is mostly sugar without all the nutrition of regular fruit…. Brown rice would be good with the beans

In my area pork liver is by far the cheapest source of protein, with vitamins and minerals in the mix. Can go as low as 1.5 euros per kilo if you shop at the right time. The taste is kinda funky but really easy to cook. I’m in a sorta poor country but I’d expect similar results proportionally elsewhere 🙂

@AtoZyzzyva I love fish, we just have to be careful about excess consumption of cheap fish that might be HIGH in toxic chemicals (mercury), just be careful, but yes definitely fish is in the mix

@JayBumbay There “should” be, but there usually isn’t, heres why. The term organic is actually pretty arbitrary and in some countries there are no standard definitions of WHAT organic is. Some producers just slap on the label and don’t change anything at all. REAL organic food does have more nutrients but its hard to always verify whats truly 100% organic. Unless sure, regular broccoli is fine, just wash it, its sprayed with pesticides!

@OmarIsuf
Thanks for the heads up.
When you say eggs are #1 source I assume you are talking about the egg whites? How do you eat egg whites? I have never tried eggs without the yolk which is why I don’t eat them a lot.

you could go to a farm, steal a cow, senselessly murder it and eat the whole thing at night, or store the rest later. But you must bay at the moon after the kill for the highest fat burn.

@SmartAceHole82 Only if you’re asian.

I personally spend up to 300$ a month on groceries due to prices so this video hopefully will lower that amount.
(300$ on basics, I live in america and the prices here are mad when you don’t have a big retail chain nearby)
And the stores in my area do not take coupons, or give them out.
And beef and pork are as expensive as bison(or a little lower) so I tend to go with bison since it fills you faster has more good protein and tastes better.

I hate being a starving college student…

@AtoZyzzyva Both whole and then separating them for the whites, depending upon your macronutrients for the day!

@SamiWheeler Thats CRAZY about bison being almost the same price as beef, I’d literally punch someone in the face for some bison
