golemslop. looks like nigger cuisine. niggers are dumb and lazy so they'll drop their $150 gubmint gibs at the closest ripoff supermarket. whites who eat like this are still intelligent enough to get it from the dollar store.

Candelabro3 36 points ago +36 / -0

I was having trouble finding a job once and was on them for about two months til I got myself up and going again. Neeeever ate like this. Guess I didn't absorb the "food stamp culture" enough in those few months. That's disgusting.

I've had the same two bags of kettle chips in my pantry for a month, and only one is half empty and the other is unopened.

peterbeater 14 points ago +14 / -0

Abundantly? One of those bags of chips, alone, is enough calories for a day. It's either a huge family, or everyone in that family is huge.

Tourgen 4 points ago +4 / -0

It's low-class people who were never taught how to live. For generation after generation. They just watch TV and buy the shiny packages.

They're the ones that will demand price controls when food starts to get really expensive. They won't grow a garden or learn to cook or learn to hunt.

inflation -> price controls -> shortages -> people start starving -> nationalization of industries -> everyone starves and/or is sent to work-camps and murdered when they do not meet their production quota.

I don’t know, but the only things I could eat off of there is the Purdue chicken, and maybe us the PCC to make some homemade spin&art dip. How do people eat like this? I mean, I can cheat every once in a while with a red velvet cake square, or two(they’re amazing) from my local baker, but I have no idea how people eat like this on the daily. It would honestly have me bed ridden with no energy. When I do cheat, which is usually about once a month or so, i feel like shit, and it takes me at least 12 to 24 hours to fully recover, and feel “right” again. I find I actually get what I like to call the sugar sweats, and even have nightmares sometimes from trash food. I can’t be the only one who experiences such things.

MasterChef 61 points ago +61 / -0

I don't think this is a joke tweet. I've personally seen people on snap benefits fill up a cart with this. Most of them have nice clothes and accessories and then claim they don't have any money to buy food.

systemthrowaway 27 points ago +27 / -0

Working as a cashier in even the "nicer" part of Portland was a fucking awakening for me. I saw EBT used for:

  • People so morbidly obese use EBT that we're literally paying for them to eat themselves to death (kinda based actually)

  • People pay extra for pre-sliced plastic-packaged tomatoes so we're paying lazy people to create trash

  • People cashing out their EBT for cigarettes

  • A vast majority of people on EBT here are fat (shouldn't they be starving?)

  • Most people use foodstamps on junk food because if they were good with money they wouldn't need foodstamps

  • Shoplifters getting caught and just paying for it with free money instead

Of course most of this was by shitskins, but there were plenty of crackhead whites too. This is why I can't support even national socialism, people who are bad at life need to be allowed to die or else we'll all eventually be dragged down with them.

When the government gibsmedat programs crash, the stupid people will scream and riot and kill anyone who they find that is self-sufficient.

systemthrowaway 2 points ago +2 / -0

This is a myth created by the (((left))) to push for communism and discourage plebs from being healthy. Up until recent inflation you could buy two weeks worth of chicken for dirt cheap. Eggs are dirt cheap. Milk is dirt cheap. Oatmeal is dirt cheap. Bananas are dirt cheap. Peanut butter is dirt cheap. Beans are dirt cheap. The list goes on. If you really had to, you could healthily sustain yourself for months with $150.

Tuna fish, canned sardines, and even beef jerky when you buy in bulk.

mmm you're making me hungry now, but that's true. The thing is, when you buy processed food exclusively, prices are all over the place and you end up buying carbs :(

It's not the carbs that are awful, it's the seed oils with the sugars, chemicals, dyes and preservatives.

BlackPillBot 1 point ago +1 / -0

It’s all of it, but yes, carbs aren’t inherently evil, but some are better than others, but most people today aren’t active enough to deserve any of them. I personally love sweet potatoes boiled in seafood/crab boil. 😋

anatidaephobia 18 points ago +18 / -0

Yep, there's also two types in that group. The fat ones have no standards, they just keep eating and eating all the time. They don't walk, always drives an electric scooter, smells like shit, often very sick, nearly brain dead and can't pay attention to anything. The ultimate slave.

The other one is basically the same in terms of mind, health and smell, but very very skinny. Often vegan but doesn't necessary eat any vegetables or fruit at all. The only discipline (if you can call it that) they have is to avoid eating, even tho they're starving.

crashdaddy 53 points ago +54 / -1

If you have the shopping habits of a 10-year old pothead...you're gonna have a bad time.

I can spend $155 and eat well for a month, while still buying extra canned stuff to stash back for SHTF events.

In fact, looking at that picture, if this dorb was to buy the exact same stuff but not the "name brand" versions, they'd probably immediately cut that purchase in half, and still have money for all the weed they're clearly smoking.

30
Geralt_of_Rivia1 30 points ago +30 / -0

Yep. That is 30 dollars in canned soda, instead of 6 2 liters for 5 dollars. 8 dollar a box cereal instead of 2 dollar a box.

Chips... store brand is still expensive and there is a legitimate quality difference. But come on, one bag instead of 7

Booted 18 points ago +18 / -0

Chicken feed has gone from $18/month to $23/month for 50lb bags where I live. Granted, this is backyard chicken consoomer feed and not bulk farm stuff, but it should give you an idea of where things are going.

Sugar_Coated_POS 3 points ago +3 / -0

Jesus where do you live? Im paying $11

Edit: Did you mean per bag or how for the month for all your chickens?

2
Booted 2 points ago +2 / -0

per 50lb bag. And per month. My chickens forage and eat some scraps, so I go through about a bag a month.

I live in California. Tip of the inflation spear.

How do you define "eat well"? Chicken, rice, potatoes, and beans are cheap and nutritious but we've found our regular varied meals have shot up in price quite a bit

Blergaderg 45 points ago +46 / -1

3lbs of brussel sprouts.

1 head of cauliflower.

1 bag of carrots.

3lbs of ground beef.

3lbs of steak.

30 eggs.

1 gallon of milk.

1 loaf of potato/sourdough bread.

1/2lb of cheese.

A whole head(?) of garlic.

A bag of onions.

That cost me about 140-180 depending on the week, coupons, and discounts. That will last me a week, and half of it will carry over to the next week, maybe even the week after. That was my grocery list on Saturday. It's not hard to get good healthy food. How this person can even fathom this is good for them. Ugh.... I know how and why they eat this way, but I just can't understand it anymore.

Budget eating grindset Chad

24
Geralt_of_Rivia1 24 points ago +24 / -0

That isnt even budget eating. That is a lot of beef and high quality beef at that. Super high animal protein.

Budget eating involves a lot more real bread, beans, as well as chicken hind quarters (1/15th the cost of that beef)

8
Blergaderg 8 points ago +8 / -0

This is true. I certainly don't eat on a budget. I can, and some weeks, I do. I have a bag of rice that I dip into once a month and use that as a side for whatever meal I have.

I plan on cutting a bit, so instead of my usual 3 pieces of turkey bacon, 3 scrambled eggs topped with cheese and salsa for breakfast, I'll probably do 2 eggs, and 2 pieces of turkey bacon.

This weekend I'll be buying chicken, bell peppers, jalapenos, and onions, making a thick creamy sort of fajita mix, and putting that on top of the rice I cook. I guess it would be more curry then fajita, but it'll be mexican flavored rather than pajeet flavored. That'll be dinner for Sunday then lunch for the week.

ChiRho 5 points ago +5 / -0

I know it isn't ideal, but there are eating modes I called 'survival' back in college. If things get bad, you can survive much more inexpensively than this. The sacrifice for my particular strategy was high sodium. Tuna. Tuna for days.

Eggs and tuna can make many different meals. I recall eating tuna on saltine crackers for dinner. You do what you have to do. Scrambled eggs with some veggies and hot sauce was dinner on so many occasions. I could eat boiled eggs cut up with dill pickle, tuna and mayo every day if need be.

I want to punch this tweeter in the face. He/she is complaining about food budgeting, and she bought six bags of potato chips. SIX FUCKING BAGS OF CHIPS. Think about this in terms of dollars spent per unit mass of food (let's just forget using a per nutrient basis for a moment).

Just consider this for a moment. You are getting 8 oz. of air puffs for $4 / bag. She spent $24 dollars on chips. She is getting chips at $8/lb. "I CAN'T AFFORD MEAT!"

For $24, I could get like three dozen eggs, six or seven cans of tuna, and a big jar of mayo. Tuna salad for days, chumps.

Granted, I understand that her point has to do with what was normal a year ago, versus how things are today. I get it. But I just can't fathom complaining about this by showing your grocery haul containing SIX FUCKING BAGS OF CHIPS. Not to mention the other frozen foods, which are always a relative premium, and her selection of meat and cheese from the deli counter (which is always like 9 or 10 dollars a pound). For fuck's sake, go get a pork loin at $4 per pound instead, and freeze what you don't eat. Cut that bitch into chops and make it go for days.

Again, I grasp that his/her point is about normalcy, not survival.

oilwellpauper 4 points ago +4 / -0

there's no way tuna and crackers is cheaper than real food

2
ChiRho 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm not sure what you mean by 'real', or how you're distinguishing tuna and/or saltine crackers from real food. I'd give you the fact that saltine crackers are nutritionally barren, but in context the crackers were just a way to carry the tuna and add a little bulk. It was probably more psychological than anything.

In terms of the money, you can get a can of tuna in water for less than a dollar. A box of saltine crackers (with 140 crackers in it) is like $3.50.

Let's say I eat 15 crackers (just over 200 calories, and something like 35-40 grams carb). That's around 40 cents worth of crackers. Along with the crackers I eat two cans of tuna ($1.60 let's say). That's costing me about $2.

It's not a meal that's going to fill you to the gills, but it can get the job done.

It's around 50 grams of protein, a little under 40 grams carb, and ~ 400 calories. Stir the tuna up first with a tbsp of melted butter or olive oil , and toss in a couple of egg yolks. Now you've got around 680 calories, and you added roughly 25 grams of fat.

Adding the fat sources increases the cost by around 50 cents, which is still well under $3 for a ~ 700 calorie meal that is clean (for the most part).

I didn't pick these foods by accident. That's why it got the nickname 'survival'.

For the same price you could go buy two McChickens from the drive-thru. You'd get slightly more total calories (30 or 40), but you'd double the carbohydrate and halve the protein. My meal is around 1100 mg sodium (a little under half the RDA), and the McDonalds is going to be around 1600 mg sodium.

Obviously the McDonalds tastes better, so given this comparison, it is easy to see why struggling people go for that rather than a disciplined meal.

oilwellpauper 2 points ago +2 / -0

for the same price I can buy around 1000 calories of ground beef and rice

0
ChiRho 0 points ago +1 / -1

Tuna is only cheaper by around 10 cents an ounce. I definitely am not arguing against beef and rice. I also ate those things. I also ate tuna and rice.

I think we can both agree that a person can afford meat and some kind of starch, if they just use some sense.

It might be cheap for protein. Doubt it beats chicken though.

Cabbage is another great one. It’s like $.70 per head, it will keep in the fridge for 2 months and you can prepare it about 100 different ways. I also like to add a little filler to my meals sometimes with about a cup (once cooked) of jasmine rice. The $5 bag of it from Aldi lasts me easily a month or more and it cooks in the instant pot in about 15 min.

2
Blergaderg 2 points ago +2 / -0

That’s another vegetable I’ve been meaning to try eating, cabbage. Decently nutrient dense and if cooked right, delicious.

2
sad_apu 2 points ago +2 / -0

I love it. I shred it for salads (to mix with the lettuce I grow), use when making tacos, you can roast it, you can grill it, it steams up real nice, saute it with onions and mushrooms, or my new favorite- cook it in the juice left over from making brats. And maybe best of all - make your own sauerkraut. It’s one of my all around favorite veg.

3
TheWestYearZero 3 points ago +3 / -0

Sauerkraut is super easy to make. Grate fine. Add salt. Put it in a jar for 3-5 days depending on ambient temp.

Probiotic.

Cheesepopel 24 points ago +24 / -0

EBT needs to be ended immediately. If you need food then there should be a gov building in every county that you go to and get a monthlty care box. It should have a pack of ramen noodles, some canned stuff, beans and rice, oats and a small block of cheese. Nothing more. Your picture should be taken and put in the local paper and online for getting assistance. There should be a page or ten dedicated to it. If you don't like it then go get a mothafuckin job, sparkling wiggle. Chips, pop, icecream, etc are luxury items. Skrimp, steak, lobster, crab legs, etc is for working class people. Not for the lazy dregs of society.

13
Geralt_of_Rivia1 13 points ago +13 / -0

Yep, I have no issue for the government issuing a box of dry goods once a month to literally anyone that asks, one box per person tied to their social security number

For instance, a pound of powdered milk, a pound of dried eggs, a pound of sugar, 5 pounds of oats, 10 pounds beans, 5 pounds grits or dried potato flakes, 5 pounds pasta, quart of oil. Throw in a spice pack and a sheet of paper with example recipes.

The government can get all of that in a box for 20 dollars.

240 dollars a year a person, 80 billion dollars if literally every American uses that. Distribute it through the post office.

SheepLord 9 points ago +9 / -0

Huh. This actually seems like a fantastic way of cutting on the welfare state and encouraging people to work while also not letting the poor starve.

Geralt_of_Rivia1 4 points ago +4 / -0

I am not saying dry goods to be humiliating - I am saying that to be affordable. You can get pretty damn good food that way.

I dont think people are entitled to meat for existing, but sure we can give them milk and eggs as well as grains and some vegetable oil.

2
TheWestYearZero 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'd replace the powdered milk with something high in Vitamin C, and the pasta with flour.

notmydirtyalt 2 points ago +2 / -0

Might as well add in the cheese, government already pays for it and stockpiles it so use it.

Added bonus is that it's versatile, nutritious, and adds flavour to even the blandest of meals.

Cheese isnt shelf stable

1
notmydirtyalt 1 point ago +1 / -0

From start to finish the cheddar is probably going to last 2 months from packaging to distribution (via temp controlled means) to the final consumer who is likely to eat it if we are talking about a subsistence welfarebox for the poor.

even then 70% of those people are likely to have access to some form of refrigeration or the classic meat safe.

I'm not even going to suggest the options for preservation of food as this is ConPro and we don't do that here.

If that is really an issue then break it down further into a cheese powder, canned pasteurised cheese like in an old K ration or use a harder cheese that is designed for shelf stability like Parmesan.

Also Freshwater fish is a good source of meat protein, Carp in particular while not the most palatable without work, is high in protein and can be raised in almost any muddy pond.

https://www.wisconsincheesemart.com/products/cheddar-cheese-10-year-old-extra-sharp

Yeah about that, 2 months is very young for cheese.

But I was talking about it being a dry good because shipping refrigerated items or food with water content is fucking difficult.

1
BlackPillBot 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes it does IMHO. Keep telling a kid his parent/s are trash, and the reason why, and the kid will likely go home, and pass the shaming onto the parents by bringing it up to them. They’ll also learn that the type of shit life they’re parents are actively CHOOSING are not normal, and unacceptable which will hopefully make them choose, or at least attempt to take a different path. Ive seen it happen first hand.

DenKon_Zenith 1 point ago +1 / -0

Rice, pork, and chicken are nice and cheap. Back it all up with a basic garden for greens, and food prices wind up borderline irrelevant. Lived off pork and rice for a few years in college, ate better than most of my classmates and paid less than they did.

AngeredKabar 10 points ago +10 / -0

LMAO the chicken and cold cuts and maybe that loaf of bread are actual food.

$150 in groceries gets me two and a half weeks of food even today for two people and that's not even struggle mode.

Don't pay for a name on the label if it's basic stuff. Learn a variety of cooking techniques. Keep a stock of bulk potatoes and onions, herbs and spices, flour, eggs, butter. Most dishes are going to require these things so always have something on hand and adjust purchase quantities so you don't have to throw any out because it went bad before you could use it. After that plan out some meals for the week and get items for those.

Lazy and cheap dinner recipe.

Oven at 425F

Repeatedly stab russet potatoes with fork and then lightly coat with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Heat skillet with some olive oil and drop in chicken thighs seasoned with salt and pepper skin side down. Move them around the pan once in a while to unstick the skin from the pan. Let it go for 15 minutes

Potatoes go on oven rack for about 45 minutes.

After chicken has been on stove for 15 put it in the oven for 15. After that flip the thighs crispy skin side up and leave in oven for 10.

If you want, you can make a gravy from the chicken drippings at this point by making a roux from the rendered chicken fat then add some milk.

Potatoes should be done about this time.

Total time less than an hour and you spend maybe 15 minutes at the stove and didn't use a single measuring cup, only one pan and you have a fantastic crispy chicken and baked potato meal.

Another recipe with skinless chicken breasts that's even easier.

Bake on sheet pan for about 20 minutes or until it's done.

Never had them come out dry.

MasksAreChildAbuse 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah EBT is insanely over funded, and we have trained lazy people to milk every penny of it.

No normal working person spends more than $150 per person per month unless they deliberately decide to buy more expensive things they can afford (because they earned it!)

But there is literally no reason to spend more other than luxury/preference.

The only things that are real food are the frozen sausages biscuits, lunchable, pizza, mashed potatoes, cold cuts, bread, cream cheese, chicken, baybell cheeses, and Velveeta

And that is about 100 dollars. Which would be 20 if you excluded the lunchables, pizza, premade mashed potatoes, sausage biscuits, baybells, and velveeta, which would still be about half the calories.

“Lunchable, pizza, sausage biscuits” eh those are borderline food.

They’re food products

I am a veteran and someone that has worked as a general contractor.

My standards for real food are low. Those are not good food, they are just something that a working man can eat and not feel like shit eating.

TheClintonHitman 7 points ago +7 / -0

Haha yea I’ve had my times where I ate MREs or whatever shit they served.

I just feel I was always groggy or had digestive issues eating that garbage.

Once you start eating real food it’s so repulsive. I can barely stand eating at any fast food places anymore

Yea, I was Navy and got used to bad food too. The lobster was usually just a slight rubbery and the cooks could never get over easy eggs right.

Geralt_of_Rivia1 3 points ago +3 / -0

The navy has the best food in the military, but still you are not going to scoff at frozen sausage biscuits or pizza. Frozen pizza is miles better than pepperoni Pizza MREs, you arent going to scoff on velveeta on your burger compared to a vegetarian omelet MRE, etc

I can’t even. It looks like what a 6 year old would buy if you gave him $155 to go grocery shopping.

How the fuck do you go through 48 sodas in 3-5 days? There’s no way this is a big family. Well they are definitely big but it can’t be more than 3-4 people…

I literally spent 105 today buying almost 2 months of emergency food.

Granted it doesn’t include any fresh foods, and it’s all bulk foods like rice, pasta and chili/bean ingredients, but also includes canned veggies, tuna, mashed potatoes, among other things.

If any issues arise and our supermarkets are run on/empty, I’m still eating good that’s for sure.

These dindu’s are retarded.

Imagine the savings and the health benefits of just getting rid of the sugary drinks. Keep the chips, the frozen pizza, the sugary cereals, even the fucking lunchables, but just get rid of the sugary drinks.

$50 of just soda, another $30 in just chips, packaged food, sugar cereal, pastries, maybe $15 total in actual food.

This is $155 worth of food

No, this is 155 worth of garbage. Literally everything in this picture save for 2 items is a sugar bomb and even those two are heavily processed "meat products".

155 will easily get 2 people through a week if you a) buy actual food with actual nutritional value and b) don't eat 5000 calories in a sitting.

drinks that will last us 3-5 days

That's 60 fucking cans of soda.

Snacks that will not last us a week

One bag could last a week per person if you ate reasonably instead of binging it.

I can say that inflation is getting bad, but is this all you spend your money on?

$155 gets me one week worth of top quality convenience ingredients (for example: pre chopped pre washed organic broccoli, organic pastured non gmo eggs, etc) along with spring water for the week, and eat out meals on top. That pile of garbage is a terrible buy. Just choosing standard ingredients would've give a family of four a week of tasty, nutritious, and varied meals.

I like how this fag bought 6 different kinds of chips as if there's any difference between one piece of msg blasted carb vs a different piece of msg blasted carb. What a refined palate.

WTF do they mean "if they have sandwiches?" Out of everything you might call a meal here, like half of it is sandwiches. Why wouldn't they count the sandwiches?

This picture makes less sense the more I look at it. A single frozen pizza and those mashed potatoes won't split between more than two fatasses. But if 72 cans of soda is "3-5 days worth" for two people, then that means more than 7 cans a day.
