GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Ok GLP lets teach those on foodstamps how to stretch a dollar & where they dont have to eat potted meat or beefaronis or ramen noodles.

^^^these foods have near no nutritional value and contribute to obesity.

for one - every supermarket must DATE their foods. shop in the store and note the DATE OF EXPIRATION. come back that day of expiration and those meats will be reduced by half or more.

shop at bread stores, where most of the bread is either 2/1.00 or 1.00 a loaf.



ill start off with a few - this will feed a family of 6. and for 2 nights.

remember - this isnt mcnastys where you can "supersize it"....the only thing that will supersize is your waist if you dont cut down on portions.

1.5 lbs ground chicken
one onion chopped.
^^cook til browned & onions tender. drain.
add 8 slices of cheese (or 1 can of campbells cheese soup)
low flame, simmer til cheese is melted.

pkg of wraps.
finely shredded lettus

spoon the meat/cheese into the wrap, add lettus,

makes a crap load. 2 maybe 3 nights worth.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Cajun chicken and rice

Buy chicken breast at half off before it expires. I got it for $2 per pound. Saute Chicken in melted butter with finely chopped bell pepper, carrot, onion, garlic. Add salt and Cajun seasoning. Saute until cooked. Deglaze the pan with fresh lime juice.

In a separate pot cook 1 1/2 cups of white rice. Add the chicken and veggies to the rice and mix.

Feeds 4

Total Cost: about $3 for everything

Cost per person: about 75 cents

Cans of beans are awesome too, and quick. And I don't mean cans of beans with a bunch of seasonings, msg and other crap.

I'm talking black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans, white beans etc. With low salt and Organic.

I buy these 10 for $10 at Smiths.

I also buy the whole cooked chickens they sell in the evenings. I shop at about 4 or 5 am when I get off work, so the whole chickens are reduced from like $8 to about $4.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
I also make a loaf of white bread every other day.

I just use a good basic recipe that I found on Allrecipes. I wrote down the basic recipe and stuck it on my fridge. Now that I have the hang of it, its so easy. I can make a the dough in literally 5 minutes, and then I just wait an hour to rise and bake for 45 minutes. The only time you're actually working is the 5 minutes at the beginning where you mix the ingredients and knead the dough.

Makes a standard loaf pan size. I use store brand flour I get for $2 for a 5 pound bag.

Total cost of loaf including yeast: 35 cents

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
I'll give you one I just made- Strata. You can put pretty much anything you want in it. Take stale bread, the staler really the better (not moldy!! just dry!) cut into cubes and line a 13x9 pan. Mix up 8 eggs, 2 cups milk, salt, pepper to taste. On top of the bread put whatever you want that you have on hand- leftover chicken, sausage, bacon, spinach, veggies, etc. Cover the bread with your faves. Then sprinkle with 2 cups shredded cheddar (or whatever you have) cheese. Pour the egg mixture over, bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 min. YUM and uses up leftovers great!

$1 for a can (15oz) of cooked beans? Ten for $10? And I thought we paid high prices.

Buy a pound of dried beans, and cook them yourself.


Buy a Whole Chicken and make soup. Rinse/clean the guts out, add back the neck; (if you even get the giblets in your chicken these days). Boil the chicken with a bunch of garlic, a halved onion, bay leaf or few for an hour. Remove chicken from broth, strain broth and set aside. When chicken is cool remove bones. Keep breast meat for casserole or other recipe. Add meat back to broth. Add couple pounds of diced potatoes and carrots chopped small. Don't peal the veges unless you hate the skin. Lotta nutrients in the skin. Can also add several cups of Egg Noodles if like Chicken Noodle Soup...

Great food and feeds many over couple days. Add more potatoes and carrots to stretch further after meal #1.


Buy Brown Rice for nutrition value. All the nutrition value of rice is in the kernel husk. White/Polished rice has the husk removed, so it has no nutritional value for your body. White rice is just starch. Brown rice with most beans makes a complete protein; so is a substitute for meat etc.


Why make "white" bread? Make Whole Wheat or multi-grain bread. Takes a bit more water for your recipe, like 1-2/3 cup vs 1-1/2 cups, but much more nutrition in whole grain breads.

Got a Bakery Thrift store in your area? Visit them and buy organic/natural whole grain breads on the cheap. Eating white bread is like eating white rice: Tastes good, but does nothing for your body...


Chili and rice is a good hearty meal for cold weather, also stews, ragout, spaghetti. Easy to make pizza at home and use quality ingredients.

The thing with cooking yourself is you KNOW what you are eating and usually the food is better tasting than at restaurants of sit-down variety.


Get cookbooks cheap at resale/thrift shops and cooking utensils/gear there too.

Not much in terms of recipes....but I grow my own veggies...organic, no pesticide, and I know exactly where they come from....

It is SO inexpensive to put together and maintain a garden and you DONT need a lot of room to do it - you can even grow in pots....

I myself section off a part of my yard and have a couple of raised beds....Even in the smallish area, I get TONS of produce....

I can tomatoes for later use. I freeze things like peas, beans, peppers, onions. Hot peppers get pickled, as do cucumbers....and anything else goes in the food dehydrator. I am still pulling stuff out of mason jars and the freezer from summer of 2012!!!!

Since I had such a huge leftover from that previous year, I actually grew for other people to do the same....

I also have chickens for fresh eggs....

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Single old guy here.

I cook all of my own food.

I'm set up for baking my own breads, tortillas, pizzas, artisan breads etc.

Some of my regular meals:

Pot of rice cooled with frozen vegetables.

I use a lot of pre-bagged, washed greens like spinach, kale and the pre-shredded cole slaw mix.

I just been working on a new favorite.
Make your own tortillas (simple once you get the hang of working with flour and stuff)
Can of Great Value precooked chicken with about 1/3 package of coleslaw mix.
Dumped it into your skillet with a few pinches of McCormick taco seasoning.
Fry/brown/simmer.
Spoon it onto your tortillas and add some cheese and other topppings if you like.

There's all kinds of nutritios stuff that's easy to make.

Sometimes I'll just put the raw greens in a big bowl with some dries cranberries and a spoonful of prepared garlic. Add a big glop of mayo and some apple cider vinegar.
Awesome.

Another is Kraft or whatever mac and cheese. Add some frozen vegs while cooking. After it's done, put in some more cheese and a can of tuna.

It's not hard to at least FEEL like you're eating OK. haha

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
I also make a loaf of white bread every other day.

I just use a good basic recipe that I found on Allrecipes. I wrote down the basic recipe and stuck it on my fridge. Now that I have the hang of it, its so easy. I can make a the dough in literally 5 minutes, and then I just wait an hour to rise and bake for 45 minutes. The only time you're actually working is the 5 minutes at the beginning where you mix the ingredients and knead the dough.

Makes a standard loaf pan size. I use store brand flour I get for $2 for a 5 pound bag.

Total cost of loaf including yeast: 35 cents
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47142807


THis. I've always wanted to try and make bread. Not white though, whole grain or something healthy.



I take a box or two of Barilla whole grain macaroni or bow ties and combine them with ground meet, tomato sauce and it last for many days. You can freeze it too.
Sprinkle on some parm cheese and make some garlic bread...mmmm.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

homemade egg noodles
these are delicious and seem like a luxury to me but they are cheap, easy and versatile.

beat 1 egg. add 1 cup flour and some salt. mix, knead a little, then roll out on floured board and cut them. drop into boiling liquid. cook until tender, about 15 min or so.
