why is food so expensive bros?
why does he say "if we have sandwiches one night" as if eating sandwiches all day eery day isn't the patrician life style?
I buy in a super cheap store, everything is non-brand products or products near their best by date, I pay $200 and it lasts me for a whole month.
>>17836995You buy products near their expiry date and you're still eating them a month later?
Who needs that much Mountain Jew and why buy Sprite on top of that?
>>17837005yes? when a product reaches their best by date doesn't mean they become poison, it's just the date they are allowed to be on the shelves, and that's why they usually end in those stores. now if I was eating a can of sardines that expired 3 years ago then that would be crazy and dangerous.
>>17837008Seeing the lunchables, I'd guess picky kids.
>>17837018Oh didn't notice the lunchables until you mentioned them
for me, it's the single can of bush's baked beans near obscured by the family size bags of chipsNow imagine if this family dumped the soft drinks, chips, lunchables, and deli products.
>>17837023>this $155 got us snacks that will last not one weekwait wait wait, 6 family size bags of chips, bag of dum-dums, family size container of double stuffed oreos, and two boxes of cereal will not last a week. All they eat are snacks
>>17836973cut on shit food like soda, chips, pop tarts and frozen pizza. Get veggies and legumes and eggs
How much do you want to bet that this person used a scooter to shop for this slop>24 mountain dews and 36 sprites only lasting 3-4 days
>>17836989This anon gets itThe Sandwich is the peak of culinary cuisine.It's where the beginner starts, and the master ends. You can put literally anything edible between two slices of the right bread, and with the correct sauces you will make it delicious. You just have to understand flavor profiles, and have imagination most do not.
>>17837023The beans are probably for gramps
Ah so this is what the CICOlads eat. Well more meat and dairy for me
>>17836973>72 cans of soda>lasts 3-5 daysOne family drinking 15 cans of soda a day? How big is this family?
>>17836973What an absurd grocery list
>>17837048260 lbs average
>>17837048gonna assume 3-4 family, soda w/ every meal (children included) and mother has a little 'pick-me-up' partway through the day
>>17836973There are about 5 food items there that I would eat(bread, meat and cheese, cream cheese, baked beans) if you just buy fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables, cheap cuts of meat, bread, and coffee, you can eat healthy and cheap.
>>17837073I would never give my kids a whole can with every meal, that's 11 teaspoons of sugar in each one at least. The rest of the stuff in OP photo is literal junk food
>>17836973It always blows my mind just how different the average shopper's groceries look from my own. I really don't think OP's image is far off from the shit I regularly see people wheeling out of the store. It is always virtually entirely sugar water/soda, junk food and processed, packaged goods, with little to no fresh produce in sight. I really don't understand how people live like this, it physically repulses me.
>>17836973Mountain Dew 12-pack = 2.99 x 2Sprite 24-case = 4.99 x 2 Lunchables simple trays = .99 x 420 bucks so farLarge bag of a variety of Frito Lay products = 2.99 x 6 Can of Bush's beans = 1.9940 nowExpensive babybel fishnet baggies = 5.99 x 2Bob Evans garlic mash potatos = 3.99Heinz BBQ Sauce = 3.9960 nowpound of salami or ham = 8.99pound of swiss or provolone cheese = 8.99Sara lee white bread made with whole grains = 1.9980 nowPound chicken breast = 3.99Large oreos package = 3.99Box of 12 pop tarts = 3.99Frozen texas toast = 3.99Bag of frozen ravioli 1lb = 3.99up to 100 bucksRed baron pizza = 5.99Box of cereal = 3.99 x 2Philadelphia cream cheese = 3.99salt and pepper shaker = 1.99up to 120add whatever those velveeta products are (unknown), the cranberry (?) juice, the frozen country biscuits and whatever baked item or premade salad is in that plastic tupperware and I can see it barely scraping $150 after taxes
>>17836973>90% of the budget goes to processes sloops junk>"WHY IS MY FOOD SO EXPENSIVE!!!"let them die
>>17836973>Drinks that will last 3-5 daysI don't think I drink that much soda in a year. Even when I was in middle school and drank Dr. Pepper like water I feel like that much soda would last me an entire summer.
>>17836973>eating all that in 3 daysDo Americans really?
>>17836973>foodthat image is literally 75% (by weight) sugar, vegetable oils, and empty carbs
It's okay guys. Her son has brain damage. That's why she feeds him nothing but simple carbs.
>>17837005Yeah. it doesn't auto expiry irl. There was yoghurt that i have eaten months after it expired date wise and it had not problem. Or chocolate chips (of course the package was sealed not damaged) was also at least a month past it's date.
>>17836973>this is $155 worth of foodWrong. There is barely $20 of food on the picture, the rest is literal trash of zero nutritional value.
>>17836973Should've gotten a Costco member ship
>>17837135So her kid is disabled and she feeds her this? Why not euthanize at this point, even that's more humane.
>>17837113>Mountain Dew 12-pack>2.99stopped reading there, what year do you live in, was the last time you went to the grocery store 2005? The normal price for them nowadays is like 5 bucks now (plus deposit depending on the state), and I guarantee you a household going through 4 or 5 cases of soda in 3-4 days is not waiting for a sale to buy them
Soda for the cereal too since they didn't buy any milk.
>>17837189if you are buying 12 packs at the retail price and not on a 4 for $12 discount then it is you who is living in 2008 my fren
>>17837037>flavor profilesKYS. good post until you said that. flavor profiles isnt a thing.
>>17837135god i'd love to see a pic of this family
>>17836973>48 cans of soda and 6 bags of chips in a weekdo americans really do this?
>>17837195there are no discounts at stores like this whenever you want. you dont decide the discounts you fat faggot
>>17837135Wild. High carbs is basically the worst kimd of diet for kids with autism. So many studies showing the benefits of low carb for them. Guess they just dgaf
>>17837213yes there is you stupid nigga literally every supermarket, big box store, or gas station convienence store has some kind of special on soda running at almost all timesread a fukken mail flyer
The lady says she isn't rich but if she can afford $1100 a month on food she's way richer than me.
>>17837214>vegetablans parent>every meal was carbs with peas or carbs with beans>in an average week get 2-3 unseasoned chicken breasts roasted for 45 minutes for protein, maybe some cheesethat explains why my autism did not improve until i moved out
>>17837005Retard most foods don't expire when it reaches the best by date.The only foods that expire is stuff like milk.
>>17836989screw patrician lifestyle, i spent the first 15 years of my life essentially having sandwiches or leftovers for dinner, there's nothing wrong with it if you avoid overprized deli stuff and shitty sugar bread.
>>17836995The non-brand products started increasing their prices too..
>>17837005many dairy products are perfectly fine even months after the best before date. i had 6 months old quark and greek joghurt that were in fine shape
>>17837144digits of truth
If this is the kind of s*** you feed your kids and then complain that you don't have any money. you're just a bad parent with poor life and decision-making skills.
>>17836973That's all the food she bought.
>>17837388>s***Go back. Your kind is not welcome here.
>>17836973>this much sugar waterwhy are americans
>>17837388There should have to be some kind of test you have to take before having kids .At least CPR and nutrition
I hate poor people so much.I make 120k as a new grad and live on $80 per week.>chicken breast>whole milk>eggs>rice>broccoli>orange juiceMake up 80% of my diet and provide everything I need: calories, protein, micros
>>17837428It is all corn syrup ,salt, carbs , highly over-processed Deli Meat.This person does not care about the health of their children in fact it looks like there was no give them childhood diabetes
>>17837431>chicken breast>whole milk>eggs>rice>broccoli>orange juice>make up 80% of my dietI hate people like you almost as much as the lady in the OP. You only care about numbers and don't enjoy anything, only seeing food as fuel. You lead a miserable and disgusting life, and are just as much of a drain on the people around you as the fat, poor, uneducated people who live on sugar water and processed snack foods.
>>17837459>only seeing food as fuel.yespost body seether
>>17836973Terrible bait. Nonetheless, we are being robbed via inflation (and have been for a long time). A lot of trends/pressures which undermine purchasing power aren't officially considered to be 'inflation', but in practice they amount to the same thing and wages (especially unskilled) haven't kept pace.
>>17837495>wages (especially unskilled)I mean... I don't see the problem here. Raising the minimum wage results in inflation and increasing minimum wage wouldn't benefit me in any way
>>17837459Imagine being so delusional that you think eating normally is dieting
>>17837473He's right though. While I might commend you for your disciplined and healthy diet, you're ignoring the fact that the rate of food price increase is a symptom of profound underlying problems (and ignoring an important aspect of quality of life for most people). Furthermore, having a snobbish attitude towards poors is frankly pathetic... It's our failing and corrupt leadership who are deserving of ire.
>>17837473>that quote>notably goes to drinking parties and fucks twinkslmao
>>17837536Only retarded /fit/fags think that's what "eating normally" looks like, and 90% of /fit/fags grew up obese (or more likely still are obese and just looking for inspiration) so they always project and act like anyone who criticizes their diet must be fat and lazy because they're not aware of what healthy living actually looks like aside from eating chicken breast with rice and broccoli for every meal.
>>17837545>having a snobbish attitude towards poors is frankly pathetic.Poor people are poor for a reason. They're stupid and don't understand budgeting. They deserve to be euthanized honestly, they are a drain on society
>>17837512when average people can't afford the fundamentals of life (rent, proper food, commuting) anymore, there's something wrong. when retards pushing around cryptos and bots doing automated trading is the only thing driving up growth and keeping the economy afloat, there's something wrong. if capital is only "invested" in for short term gains instead of for developing industry and creating jobs, there's a problem. if you disenfranchise ordinary people by driving down wages via importing third worlders who just want to leave their shithole and will put up with anything just to stay here, there's something wrong. minimum wages are not inherently wrong, they just need certain conditions to work, e.g. protectionism, border control etc. and if you think it's a good idea to get more people to the point where they are excluded from life (working, participating in social life, starting families, creating something, having their voices heard) by just importing more third worlds to do your dirty work and increase your profits, then you might want to reconsider if there is no problem.
>>17837512a) No man is an island.b) I'm not suggesting we keep propping up our 'growth at all costs' cancer-conomy. I'm suggesting that deflationary phases are an important correcting process that should be generally allowed to occur. Stop mass immigration, kick out illegals, stop bailing out irresponsible institutions, stop with frivolous debt spending and self-perpetuating welfare spending, and eventually affordability for the average person will get better. Of course our benevolent leaders don't give a shit about that, they want even more 'useless eaters' who've been conditioned to accept a lower standard of living.
>>17837559Maybe it's because you say phenomenally retarded shit like:>and are just as much of a drain on the people around youPlease. Explain how these people are a drain on you, because it sounds like the only one projecting here is you.You clearly have some sort of hang up or mental disorder
>>17837561>They're stupidEven moreso then, having scorn for people who couldn't possibly know better is pointless and stupid itself. Blame the corrupt non-poors who subsidize and import those people.
>>17837615>explain how these people are a drain on youThey're a drain on me in exactly the same way walking past a homeless person is a drain on me. I don't want to see them, interact with them, and honestly wish they didn't exist. They bring down my day and ruin my mood.
>>17837005Volunteering at a food bank has shown me that dates on food are absolute bullshit, outside of things like milk and meat. Even then, as long as they don't smell bad, or the package isn't bulging, they're usually good for a couple days past the sell by pointThe one I always laugh at is canned food. Like that shit will survive nuclear war, but they stick a year sell by date on there just so shops will have to order more even if it doesn't sell
>>17837073"pick me up"My mother did that, except it was wine, and beatings
>>17837195Here in rural Kentucky its 3 twelve packs for 13 dollars. Where the actual fuck do you live that you can get 4 for 12?two cases for 10 dollars is fucking insane as well. One case is like 8-10 dollars I usually buy Faygo so I don't memorize case prices.>>17837189I bought a 12 pack of Dark Berry Dr. Pepper last week and it cost 6 bucks. It wasn't even good.>>17837113Lunchables brand are 1.50 or possibly even more.Lays are 3.30Red Barons are only 5 here I think.

>>17837640Your post is a drain on everyone here.Maybe you should just fuck off.
>>17837773damn from a Food Lion? I haven't in one in years but I remember thinking they had high prices.

>>17836973I rarely buy brand foods anymore. For one, I can't afford it, but more importantly, I can't see the point of paying 4x times more compared to store/off brands when the only difference is minor changes to the recipe. Many of the store brands are even made in the same factory as the branded stuff.

>>17840314>a few coworkers who brought in 2 liter bottles of regular full sugar soda and drank the whole thing during a shiftSome people are beyond help.
>>17839813>charityYou can take a deduction for charity contributions (some limitations apply, we'll assume they don't here). A deduction reduces your taxable income, it's not a dollar for dollar reduction in tax.Like using the 40% tax rate in the calc, an 18,000 contribution would give a deduction of 40% of 18,000 = 7,200 in tax savings.There are tax deductions for property taxes, state taxes, mortgage interest, student loans (subject to other rules, limits, etc.)
>>17836973It's only expensive if you aren't shopping at Costco.
>>17836973Instead of expensive brands buy store brands. Don't buy as much potato chips. Stop feeding your kids lunch ables and just put some sandwiches in a lunch box. Wow suddenly you can afford way more
>>17836973Yeah, it's hard to feed the family for $150/week when all you buy is fucking junk food. If you buy actual food you cook yourself it's pretty easy.

>>17836973Why are americans like this? Why do they hate good food? I'm a lazy piece of shit and I still cook every meal. Just last month I've started trying and experimenting with ramen and borscht.
>>17836973Why a bag of candy?Why so much soda?Why so many chips?Why so much breakfast food?Why the lunchables?This is like how a child buys food, where they just grab whatever looks good to them at the time on the shelf. If you're budgeting, you write down a list of stuff you want to cook for the week, often times things with shared ingredients, and then you buy those ingredients. At least one meal should be pasta, because pasta is cheap as fuck to make. Usually a good way to do this is actually crack open a newspaper and browse through the coupons. Chicken on sale? We're making chicken that week. But you can't rely on stuff just being "on sale," if you buy only chips because they're on sale, you're going to have a bad time because that's not going to provide you the meals you need. You're going to get more bang for your buck buying ingredients and cooking them into meals.Honestly, not even that much thought has to go into it because once you budget a couple times you get a pretty good feel of what you need to buy each week or so.
It's almost exciting to see how rapidly this society is decaying and falling apart.
>bootsucking lackeys itt defending the wildly out of control inflation that is making life more difficult to live no matter what you buy at the storeFuck off
>>17840314I've known people like that, even had the misfortune of living with one. When he complained about feeling like shit I told him to drink more water and he started making Kool-Aid and went through POUNDS of sugar in a week. I ended up hiding my sugar and he went back to chugging soda. The beetus is gonna hit that man hard and he's going to insist there was no way to see it coming.
>>17836973Because food takes HARD WORK to produce and not many people want to perform HARD WORK. A lot of the money that gets printed and injected into the system go to people who do not WORK HARD to make food or distribute food.
>>17839756daycare probably clocks in around $2.1k/month/child.Considering the combined gross salary is $500k AND the 401k contributions, both parents work fulltime.My early childhood differed only cause my parents (1) were friends with other parents who were within a few minutes' drive from each other AND had children attending the same school, (2) didn't work max hours, exchanging monetary gain for time w/ kids, (3) no sports, group piano lessons and books from the school and public library.Carpooling, staggered work shifts, low expense leisure activities
There is no food in the picture
>>17840226Yogurt and cottage cheese have protein. Also I have a bag of tilapia and a bag of shrimp in my freezer from last week's shopping. Some of which I will be eating into next week.
>>17839083>1.5 million dollar house>18k in charity>3 vacations every year>an average of nearly $2,500 dollar in clothes for each family member per year>$12,000 in extra-curricular lessons for a couple of twerpsMan, imagine being so fucking average
>>17840094>>17840106That haul cost $95 and that is with me buying th faggy chia and flax seeds for my smoothies. I can eat well off $100/week. I will say though 10 years ago I remember my food bill being like $50/week so food prices have definitely risen. Used to be able to get 6 chicken breasts for $10, now only 3 breasts for $10. Food prices are rising, but it's still not impossible to eat healthy on less than $500/ month.
>>17836973Canadians eat shit food
>>17840630>>produce in a fucking sealed plastic bagThey aren't sealed retard. They have plastic bags in the produce section to put the produce in.

My Strawberries are pre crushed and in containers in my freezer when my garden fresh Strawberries ripen I'll have fresh, but that will be a while.
>>17840630>>canned rather than dried beansYes, because I don't want to wait million years for the beans to cook.
>>17836973Excellent bait. Really activated my almonds this morning. Thank you OP.
>>17836973Joe Biden wants you starving and wants your children turned into trannies.
>>17838294>>17838815>But for some reason pain at the pump is supposed to be a metric of how healthy the country isOutside of NYC, America is a car-dependent nation. The four-door sedan is the symbol of the American middle class and its prioritization of freedom and independence. The price of gas directly influences the bottom line of that fading middle class, and thus is used as a barometer for its health.
>>17841213There is also the fact that you have to use fuel to make and transport goods. So, the more expensive fuel is, the more expensive everything is going to be.
>>17836973Stop eating trash. Round here locally produced stuff lately even less than it was in 2020. Anything that had to be shipped or was processed has gone through the roof. A lot of the recent price hikes have been due to food costs. My fellow rural bros demand your local farms sell their shit locally too. Often it just gets sent to the cities because they can make more money. If it wasn't for the Trucker and trailer shortages you wouldn't see much local anything in most cases.
>>17841275>*fuel not food costs
>>17836973>why is food so expensive bros?All our food is moved by truck and diesel fuel is now over $5.50 a gallon.I work for a food distribution company supplying grocery stores, restaurants and convenience stores (that does $2.3 billion per year in business) and got a text Wednesday evening telling me we'd be shut down on Thursday and then on Thursday evening, I got another text saying we'd be shut down on Friday also.I'll admit I'm kinda worried...
>>17837459>You lead a miserable and disgusting lifeProjecting much? Fatties are the miserable ones. They cope with their mental issues by stuffing their faces with food. Endless procrastination and hedonism that'll be rewarded with health problems down the line. Then comes the real misery. If you'd have foresight, you'd eat and live so that your future self doesn't need to suffer. Your body is a temple and you are shitting in yours. I'm saying this as someone who used to be fat, but is now thinner and feeling better than ever.
>>17837559Actually eating strict like that is probably preferrable if you live a sedentary lifestyle. You can eat more if you are active and burn the calories. But chicken and broccoli is mighty fine if you just shitpost on 4chan.
>>17840867Farming and processing are quite asymmetrical in developed countries due to automation. Utilization of agricultural land is very high. Still plenty of truck drivers around as far as I know. So no, it's not due to lack of work... It's due to many other factors including thoughtlessly increasing population via mass immigration, rampant money printing as you say, increasing costs of basic inputs like fuel and fertilizer, cartels & monopolization, weirdly designed regulations/subsidies incentivizing crop destruction, etc.
>>17841302They being forced to put of building repairs because of the cost of fuel and the availability of parts for repairs? I was deep diving the food processing fires bs because something didn't seem right. So far 3 of 3 that I dove into have been shipping/distribution companies not processing plants. Take the most recent Saladinos fire in Fresno. News reports said processing plant, little misleading language, they're a distributor they don't make food. I bet this is the case for half the aledged fires.

>ITT anons fall for the obvious bait and argue amongst each other instead of turning attention to our inept/corrupt leadership and their undermining of your purchasing power in generalWhy are you guys like this?
>>17841727spoken like someone who's never had a refreshing slice of velveeta toast after a hard day at work
>>17837545>towards poors is frankly patheticSaid no one who has ever lived near poor people. They revel in their stupidity and poor choices.
>>17841864They’re just having to deal with the fallout from Trumps retarded fiscal policies.
>>17838815Internet is a luxury. Gas is a necessity.
>>17836973Because the Americans destabilized a key food-producing region. And then Europeans fell on their sword for America-sama.
>>17841864if i wanted to do something productive why would i be on 4chins
>>17836973When I was growing up I had friends who’s kitchens looked like that. I used to hate that my parents rarely let me have junk food, but now I’m extremely thankful
>>17841302They don't want you to know this but the food at the distribution centers are free. You can take any pallet home. I have 1,000 lbs of canned goods.
>>17837459>only seeing food as fuelas one should you fucking fatass. Food should never be seen as a luxury
>>17841976speaking of food, how does the stuff here https://frankiesfreerangemeat.com/ compare to local store prices? My local stores are pretty limited and I'd rather be getting good food at a decent price.
>>17841976t. pic related
>>17841936They don't know better anon. It's irrational to hate a being for lacking a capacity; you should hate people who can/do know better but manipulate and pander to stupids for short-term gain instead.
>>17841302I also work in food distribution and we had a fun day when all the veggie oil went to the moon. Telephones ringing nonstop, buying and selling trucks multiple times. Felt like a wall street movie
>>17841949Nice bait. The robbery has been ongoing longer than any of us have been alive.
They're actually retarded. I just spent $700 on bulk organic dry goods that will last 6+ months for a family of three. Gardening and chickens is also a wise investment. God damn people are dumb. "Why are muh junk foods so expernsive!!?? They used to be cheap wah."
>>17836973>6 different bags of chips>3 12 packs of mtn dew>2 24 packs of sprite>fucking dum dum lolipops>3 lunchablesthat's like $75 worth of nothing right there that could've been spent on meat, pasta, or ingredients or a good meal
>>17839083Lmfao i can't believe how out of touch people are. There is an easy 50k available if they just dont live like cunts.
>>17841975Cool. I assume you have to pay someone to load it on the back of your truck though? Or are there just self-serve forklifts sitting around?
>>17841961Fair enough, at least you're honest.
>>17840106No, poors don't even use them. Food banks, thrift, goodwill are for the people not poor enough for welfare. Shit use them as a millionaire for all I care, I would.
>>17836973>155 worth of "food">1/3 of it is canned soda, another 1/3 is bags of chips>this might not be enough to last an entire weekThere better be 5 grown adults eating this shit, and even then they deserve to be hungry and poor if this is what they consider food.
>>17839083>21k/a pp on childcare? a full time live in carer?>6k/a pp on food>20k/a on vacations>10k/a on payments for painfully average cars>6k/a pp on vpiano lessons>2.5k/a pp on clothes>donating 18k/a to charity>10k for whoopsy rainy day>man i feel so poor :(((it must be tough to be that level of shithead
>>17836973you get what you vote for
>>17837512>Raising the minimum wage results in inflationIt didn't cause any noteworthy inflation in any of the places where it's been raised, but you guys keep saying this stuff over and over.Minimum wage was the equivalent of $20/hr through the 70's and early 80's.
this picture is the equivalent of a peasant posting a picture of a stack of grain or somethingin this case, it's been made more appealing with huge amounts of salt, sugar, spices, seed oil, and engineering
>>17840867Comfy birb webm made me happy for a moment
>>17837135'picky eating' comes from blowing a kids brain up by injecting it with high fructose corn syrup
>>17837135Yeah like all those people with "avoidant food intake disorder" which basically means they've been fed nothing but nuggies and tendies their entire life and gag at the sight of a green
>>178422121973-1983 inflation was 5-15% every year
based brandon punishing ameripiggies
>>17837459>only seeing food as fuelThat is exactly what it is, you can enjoy the fuel you're putting into your body and vary it up but at the end of the day if you're only eating when you're hungry it's because your body needs fuel and food is that fuel.
>>17841213Car dependency is like obesity, all but a few percent is caused by choices and it's too much effort to change.
>>17841009Pre-soak bruh, if you know what you're eating tomorrow there's no reason not to, only downside to dried bean is the risk of pebbles.
>>17841754You could've at least added some organic anal lubricant if you were gonna make a millenial meme shopping list.
>>17840016This is how not retarded people budget for food that isnt total garbage
>>17836973f-food ? anon ?
>>17842786yeah bro I chose for public transit to suck
>>17836973>All that junk food>Dude why is it so expensive
>>17836973That’s disgusting, i buy waaay more heathy food for cheaper
>>17837048in America the tap water is not fit for drinking and bottled water costs more than Mountain Dew
>>17843997Neither of those things are true, but is the norm in latin america, so can be expected here within 20 to 30 years
>>17836973this is a fake post right
>>17836973I feel pity for the ignorant. We need to help them make better choices. Those groceries are utter garbage.
>>17844035>Neither of those things are trueHe is correct. American tap water is not fit for consumption. An independently verified fact, so much the case that news outlets ran the stories. The corrupt EPA isn't going to tell you the truth. Packed with chemicals and other toxins---Intentional and unintentional.
>>17837473>>17837536>>17840051>>17841352>>17841976>>17842771Holy shit. Literally every single reply is from a former fatass who is compensating and therefore needs to project their trauma onto everyone else. Guess what? Most people just eat normal, balanced meals, and do regular shit that involves walking around and having fun, and it keeps them at a healthy weight. You think you need to eat boneless, skinless chicken breast with broccoli and brown rice for every meal because you are a fat fuck who doesn't know any other way not to be a fat fuck. If that's what works for you that's fine; you'll probably live your miserable existence longer than you would have. But the rest of us just do normal shit and are fine. We're also sick and tired of you talking about your "progress" and how your special diet is super special.
>>17837008You drink mountain dew in the morning and afternoon and sprite at night before going to bed.
>>17837005Nigga if the meat starts going weord you just makebabfreah herbed heavybgarlic curry with mustard, vinegar and honey, 3 hpurs at fire and we would eat the plate.If it looks skewy, stew it!.
>>17837200It can be if people "feel" it and understand it. I feel the dude and bitches love sandwiches. And if you make the bread is a sure fuck, not for me anymore tho. I cooked the hella of a sandwich and poliosgarmed my actual wife 5 years ago.
>>17837426Yes, because giving people permits to have procreative sex will prevent retards from having children.What do you do with children that were born without your sex permit?You gonna do the china thing and deny them personhood and all social services for life?
>>17836973>get on diet pill>eat one can of sardines every 2 days>$10 dollars a week.>become /fit/Simple. As.
>>17839083>$110 pp a week on food>owns a fancy car and SUV>$198 a month on clothes>$500 a month on extracurricular activities $18k a year on charityFuckers spend half my net wage on funking charity and call themselves "average"? Maybe it's time to fire up the guillotines.
>>17842786Those choices were made 80 years ago, I wouldn't have made them but they were made for me and I have to deal with it.
>>17838131Canned food is before the best by date
>>17839083>3 vacations a year>AverageHow can they be so out of touch jesus christ
>>17844301What the fuck is wrong with you shitskin parent poo shart retard, die from salmonella you fucktard
>>17836973stating the obvious, but that's not food
>>17838041fuck off 70pln will not last you more than 2-3 days.
>>17836973>drinks will last 3 to 5 days>60 cans of fizzy sugar water>20 to 12 cans per day? >family of 4, 5 to 3 cans per day for a single person>12 ounce cans, 60 to 36 ounces of sugary fizzy water per fucking dayDo Americans really?
>>17836973I hope my country taxes all this shit to the point no one can afford them. You want something good? go to a proper bakery, not this absolute trash.
>>17844263The only one who sounds like they're compensating here is you anon, just the fact that you think of food as some special treat or occasion lets me know you're probably currently a fatass and the reason these types of post piss you off isn't cause it's annoying always hearing about this shit but rather cause you see a bunch of people who've managed to do what you think you can't and it pisses you off.
>>17842818Pre soaking is a meme it still takes a long as time for them to cook.
>>17843997>bottled water costs more than Mountain DewThe fuck? A 12 pack case of mountain dew is $6. A 24 pack of store brand water bottles is $4. Even name brand bottled water is cheaper than pop. But the real solution is to get a water filter. A pitcher with a filter doesn't cost that much at all.
>>17844092Depends on where you live, and your source of water.
>>17845201>2014Something tells me that is is a lot worse now, more than half the people I see are land whales, and people who aren't land whales are either stick bitcj twigs, or beer gut overweight. It's so bad that people with a beer gut look normal.
>>17844735this hole was made for me
>>17845263>just the fact that you think of food as some special treat or occasion lets me know you're probably currently a fatassThe projection is palpable.
>>17836973>Mountain Jew>Doritoes>Lays>Cheetos>Doritoes>Lays>Cheetos>Butter>Butter>ButterWHY IS MY SLOPPA SO EXPENSIVE?!?!??!
>>17845436What projection? I will gladly admit I'm a fatass but I'm working on it currently and step one was to figure out why I was such a fatass which was treating food as an or something I looked forward to everyday. If you're happy being a fatass then all power to you anon but you should at least be honest and stop pretending that the reason those people and their post annoy you is cause they constantly preach about their healthy eating.
>>17837018Each one of those lunchables is like $6 dollars too, which is more expensive than 2 weeks of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with an apple and a cookie. That's what my parents gave me in school. Well, that however much it was to to buy a carton of milk; $1?
>>17837112Yesterday I went grocery shopping and bought about a week's worth of food for $50. It will actually last longer than that because several items I purchased were value packs, 10 chicken thighs for example which will take longer than a week for me to eat completely. Even then $6 of that receipt was alcohol. People buy the most ridiculous shit.
>>17845487>what projectionYou literally just spelled it out. You are a fatass and you think that because you have to stop enjoying food in order to get healthy the same holds true for everyone else. You're going from, "I'm a fatass because I look forward to food" to, "everyone who enjoys food must be a fatass".
>>17837459You leave whole milk out of this. People who drink whole milk do it for the taste not because it has more calories.
>>17845548People who drink milk for the taste drink chocolate milk, because they're children.
>>17845525>"everyone who enjoys food must be a fatass".When did I ever say this? I guarantee you're a fatass because of your post, I'm not talking about anyone else besides you and what can be ascertained from your post here which like I said scream of fatass cope. I'm more than sure people can and do enjoy food and even look forward to it while being healthy and fit but those same people aren't gonna sit around bitching about people posting that all they eat are chicken breast and rice like you do.
>>17845559Flavored milks (chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, etc.) are not even remotely comparable to plain milk.
>>17845562>those same people aren't gonna sit around bitching about people posting that all they eat are chicken breast and riceOr maybe because you're posting on a food and cooking interest board everybody hates /fit/ fags because all the do when they come here is talk about how much they hate food and cooking, and then call everyone here fat when they tell them to fuck off with their chicken breast and rice. Example #254243452345263454325: (you)
>>17845592Jesus this really got under your skin huh? I guess facing reality is just something you're not ready for. Either way this thread wasn't exactly made to celebrate cooking and food, it was made to make fun of some fatass claiming 150 bucks worth of food is 3-4 days worth of food while most of what they bought was junk food and soda.
>>17837135>its ultimately cheaper to buy premade foodsThe fuck?
>>17841952>internet is a luxuryMaybe 20-25 years ago. Nowadays you can't really do anything without a connection or a lot of things become unnecessary difficult to do.
>>17836973"People" who live in cities should be killed
Why not a $50, 50 pound bag of rice, $80 of chicken breast, and $20 of spinach?You can order that all online with zero research
>>17836973MFW I spend $50 per week on lunches and all I have is celery, beetroot, artichokes, pickles, and hummus. Most of it is fruit for juicing, to be honest. It's comfortably double that for dinners, so $600 p/m? Not including eating out. (UK)I make enough so it isn't an issue but I am three dinners away from it being $1000 p/m on food.
>>17845873It's a really commonly held belief, same for fast food mostly cause these people will compare the cost of a single McDonald's hamburger or something to the cost of all the ingredients needed to make a single home cooked one without taking into account how many can be made with the home cooked ingredients.
>>17846098forethought is dead. 60% of americans live paycheck to paycheck. even people making 6 figures manage to be that retarded
>>17846098I can, to a degree, understand that sentiment from singles. I rarely manage to completely use all my veg and fresh stuff (I'm shit at meal planning, I admit) and generally have to toss at least a little which irks me, but cooking for a family these issues should be a nonissue
>>17846138Meal plan then go shopping??
>>17846141wtf no this is a free country i can waste as much as i want and not plan ahead
>>17836973>buys processed junk shit at a gas station>complains that it's overpricedWhat a surprise!
>>17844263Do you even lift?
>>17836973don't buy overpriced chips. More than half of their money went to snacks
>>17846607dumb cunt, just ditch the advocado and 6 of the limes.
>>17836973"if we have sandwiches one night"?? Bitch sandwiches every day. 1 bread loaf, 2 jars of sandwich paste will give 5 days' lunch for ~£1 in UK.
>>17846607>not eating a lime per day
>>17836973Post bmi fatass
>>17837135She's right though. It *would* be a lot more expensive to make homemade Cheetos/Oreos, etc.
>>17836973None of this is food, it's all junk and I bet the OP is fucking fat
>>17846607>6 limesEvery time

Believe me, 12 eggs and 500gramms potatoes are basically nothing and will feed ya for a day
>>17837135>most of the time it's ultimately cheaper to buy premade foodsDo americans really believe?
>>17846607> trying this hard to virtue signalBitch don't know about the real poor life. Been there. Many a time when I stode my happy ass on up to the checkout loaded down with bricks of ramen and tuna pouches. No shame, bitch doesn:t know the struggle.
>>17846749Where are you shopping? A single medium loaf is £1.10 alone.
>>17837431Stuff like salmon, beef, etc. is the 20% I didn't list. But I eat fish rarely, like twice per month

>>17848012Kentucky is deceptive. Most of the population isn't heavily urban, so outside of Louisville and Lexington, the black population just doesn't really exist apart from one or two neighbourhoods per town.Like, it's 7% overall population but up to 20% in the cities.
>>17836973That's not food guy
>>17837459Look at all those seething replies you got, must have struck a nerve.
>>17836973Small amount of food for the average man
>>17840314>>17840330A friends mom used to do that, funny enough she was rail thin
>>17845307That nigga is clearly trolling, 99% of the us is fine waterwise unless your city is a retard about maintaining shit
>>17849155Fun fact: the tapwater in Flint, Michigan, has been perfectly safe and drinkable for a few years now. Of course, the local population is so distrustful of the authorities now that they assume it's still unsafe, and "muh Flint water" has been the rallying cry for a decade now that people won't drop it.
>>17842262Picky eating is just parents having spoiled kids. Send the shit to bed hungry and see how picky they are
>>17836973I am enjoying the poor people getting what they voted for. Worthless pieces of human trash get in the bread lines like you begged for.
>>17847515For some shit maybe, like its cheaper for me to buy a generic $1 bag of frozen veggies than it is to chop and dice shit seperately myself. She is just a lazy ham planet.Real people on the struggle bus eat rice and beans with maybe some hot sauce on christmas
>>17840314it's called addiction, i have an relative who would get those giant big gulps of coke at every restaurant and get 4-5 full refills while eating, ususally "one for the road" too. that's like minimum 2k calories of pure hfcs and sugar. some people just don't even care.
>>17846749>sandwich pastedo bongs really?
>>17849121was just gonna say the same thing. throwing stones, glass houses, etc.
>>17837135>it's ultimately cheaper to buy premade foodshow the fuck are there still people spewing this bullshitI buy mostly premade stuff because I prefer not having to do the work but I'm not dumb enough to say it ends up cheaper

Maybe the odd bit of fruit or a new condiment. That's basically four weeks worth of food. for me.
>>17836973Jesus that's a lot of crap. Not even a single fresh vegetable. Why are Americans like this?
this has got to be fake
>>17849821Have you ever been to a white suburb?
I got that much food (basically similar stuff too) plus vegetables for 51 USD at Aldi's yesterday. And this was in commiefornia so don't claim I live somewhere cheap.
>>17849840>Aldi's Hello yes I'd like to speak to John Aldi. What's up with hillbilly Americans adding 's to every store they go to?
>>17844263>boneless, skinless chicken breast with broccoli and brown rice for every mealbut anon that sounds yummyif you dont want your chiccie bweasts and your bwoggolie and your bwown wice, then more for me :)
>>17849855cram it fag's
>>17849735for me, its getting 1400 frozen sausages for £70 and stealing ketchup/mustard packets for flavour
>>17836973Thwre is no food in this image.
>>17850061Where do you buy 1400 frozen sausages?
>>17837459I agree with you completely. Most people would make something basic like a hot dog, then slap ketchy and musty on it, or not because they need 'something quick and easy' so they can do work. These people will never understand the pleasure of cooking off a hot dog in beer then topping it with mustard, olives, sauerkraut and relish because they don't have the IQ or understanding that you can enjoy everything in life.These same people don't marinate fried chicken in buttermilk overnight then brine it.These people don't know what asiago, romano or bleu cheese taste like.These people dont know the difference between parsley varietiesEtc.
>>17836973>Complains that food is too expensive>Buys nothing but junk food and corn syrup drinks>No water anywhere to be found>Almost no ingredients for cooking meals>"Why can't I survive more than 3 days with $155?"Skill issue.
>>17850456>No water anywhere to be foundUnless they live in a shithole they can drink their tap water although in my experience people like this rarely do.

(i buy from the store cause the tap is bad for coffee).and the tap is far from toxic,its just a bit unpleasant due to being a bit hard.
>>17837135>cheaper to buy pre-made foodmoved into a new apartment last week, lived on frozen dinners/junk food while I was waiting for my new kitchen supplies to arrive (new pots and stuff like that)went grocery shopping today, bought food for a week, literally spent like half the money I spent last week and it wasn't nothing fancy either;rice, beans, chicken, vegetables, some minced beef/pork, spicesthese people are so full of bullshit
