    - whey
    - whole chicken
    - eggs
    - milk
    - oats
    - olive oil

    Buy in bulk, clip coupons, get a costco or price club membership. (Whey should be ordered online, NOW foods isolate, NutraBio and MyoFusion can be found really cheap with free shipping, much better than GNC and much better than cheap crap that makes you fart)

    brown rice make 4cups

    dried black beans 2 cups, 2 large cans of chicken breast, 1 chicken flavored bullion cube(or just boil beans in chicken stock), add a chopped onion + chopped carrot if you have them around

    600 calories, 20-25g protien per serving, should feed you twice a day for a week.

    $10-$12 for 14 meals not bad

    fyi, I typically eat 5 x 500-600 calorie meals day plus 1000 calorie dinner


    black eyed peas, black beans, lima beans + rice + some chicken thrown in make it pretty cheap

    black beans is the only thing I used canned chicken for though

    Also, not sure where you live but if there is a Wal-mart superstore nearby you can get skinless, boneless chicken breast for $1.78lb, dosen't get much cheaper than that. Also, have $1 greek yogurts with 14g of protein per serving.

    brown rice is cheapest carb. Eggs are probably the cheapest protein when bought in 5 dozen.

    i dont have much money to spend on food but luckily i live right by a costco and they have all the essentials for usually damn good prices.

    -Chicken Tenders: ~$15 for 6 lbs
    -Eggs: ~$1 per dozen
    -Tuna: $12 for 8 cans, 45g protein per can
    -Greens: $3 for huge amount of lettuce, Carrots are extremely cheap there as well
    -Tilapia Fillets: $4 / lb
    -Brown Rice: 12 lb back for about 15 bucks, will last a long time
    -Bread: $3 for 2 loaves of whole grain
    -Cytosport Whey: $28 for 6 lbs - great deal on whey
    -Protein Bars: $20 for 2 boxes of 12, pretty good bars, 30 g protein each
    -Almonds: $8 for a fairly large container, cant remember how much
    -Milk: $5 for 2 gallons

    These are what i can remember off the top of my head very good prices that grocery stores only beat when they have huge sales.
