starving actors? oxymoron?
Lump sum, buy a large quantity of rice. Individual days, I can only think of noodles. the 2 minute variety, theyre about $.50 cents a packet here for
the super cheap type.
Hmmm rice.. When I like something, I like 2000 of it!

having tried the "noodles" thing in the past when in that situation, let me say BAD IDEA. while i was doing this a friend took me out to a party and
i PASSED OUT. when i came to a couple friends one a nurse asked what i had been eating. i was told THAT is WHY i passed out. all noodles do is fill
you up, NOT ENOUGH NUTRITIONAL VALUE to keep you going.
plain rice would amount to the same, but you can add a bit of veggies/meat to it to make it more worth while, using the rice to "stretch" the other
stuff out. thus providing at least some nutrients plus filling you up. pastas can be used in the same way being fairly cheap, and being able to add
small amounts of "good food" (which also tends to cost more) to it. doing this you can take a "cheap meat" like a chicken leg, and get two meals
out of it.
peanut butter is a good idea, as it it a goop protein to keep you going even if you don't have bread. beans (dried beans are cheap) is also good
protein for when you don't have much meat. dried beans just take time to prepare, tho if you are broke, chances are you have all the time you
staples like flour, salt and oil are good to have as can make bread type stuff which ends up cheaper than buying bread. buying most "ingredients"
and making stuff from "scratch", can be a huge money saver. it may seem a bit pricey but if you have the funds to buy it, it will make many meals,
that contain what you actually need nutrient wise, cheaper than buying "prepared" stuff that general will do you more harm than good, as they just
fill you up without providing needed nourishment. as i found out the hard way.
one thing i did find out, is after a few weeks of hardly any food you are able to start ignoring hunger, letting you get by on one small meal a day.
