Getting Scrappy

I’ve decided to spend $5 a day or less on food.

I think hummus and an avocado might fit the bill.  If I’m still hungry I can go to the food pantry/soup kitchen.

I feel headachy already thinking of cutting down on my food consumption.  I’m such a baby.

Jesus and many other respected people fasted (ie. NO FOOD) for days at a time.  Certainly I can cut down a bit.

Mind over matter, yes?

I’ve posted on the forum about it-if you don’t want to comment here, you can comment over there.  We have 3 members now, including me.

    I thought you were just being stubborn. So you have food allergies to wheat, flour and dairy. Ouch.

    The safeway near me sells large cans of Safeway beans for 1.39 a can. Those are good for a meal.

    Well, fats offer the most calories per gram and the most energy density. Carbs, most fruits and veggies are out. You need calories first. Rice? Tuna is cheap at 70 cents per can.

    Well, that’s my suggestion. If I had to live on 5 bucks/day, it would be rice, tuna, and beans. Hummis is soy and its an inferior food.

    It’s hard. Be careful; you may lose weight initially but your metabolism will slow may down as things go on. Your hair and nails may change. It is dangerous to do over long periods of time.

    Health comes first. Without it, there is no work, no church, not even the internetz matters.

    Fasting is not as hip as it is made out to be today, there are benefits, but there are also costs. The pundits forget that. It gets alot less sexy when one’s hair falls out, or the gums start bleeding, bone breaks, and other scary things. I am 100% certain that there are food stamps, WIC, single woman charities where every you may live. Consider using them.
