Great thread. I have lived like this off and on most of my life for one reason or another. In the UK it is getting harder and harder as the basics
have leapt up in price this last year or so, flour, eggs , etc. I always make my own bread but as has been noted this is not much cheaper, healthier
Bags of salad can be cheap if near to bb date and will give some vitamins.
Sometimes just the act of eating something hot can be a great help. Psychology is very important, as depression can mean the difference between giving
up or surviving.
Stay away from simple sugars ( usually the cheapest foodstuffs) these can cause hunger and cravings.
Alfalfa, cress and sprouting beans eg mung are good for vits and don't take long to sprout.
Wood ant eggs can be harvested twice a year without damage to the colony
I know this is not strictly true to the thread, but when I was a bit younger I used to go to the local collage and just wander into the subsidised
Also if a pizza is ordered and not picked up they have to throw it in the dumpster.
