Make you a big ol tub of spaghetti, rice, and one with beans. Fruit is super convenient, so is milk.
The more wholesome foods are usually around the perimeter of the store and the processed foods tend to be in the center of the isles. Good luck.- Tony Paradis, RD, LD, USAW, USAPL

Do you have a freezer?
Grab chicken breast when its $1.79/lbs, stock up.
Cottage Cheese by the pound
Grab tuna when it goes on sale, stock up
Dont neglect your greens. The grocery store near me always has bagged/cut broccoli on sale, as well as salads that are about to expire. They are super cheap, just eat them within 2-3 days.
Its doable on $50/week, you just gotta plan it out and follow through. No wondering around at the store till you spend all your money lol.Fierce Five log:

Fruits and Veggies

OP: look for Ground meat (pork is cheaper than beef); where I am ground pork has the same macros and is cheaper (per cal/macro) than eggs.
Also; rice, oats, potatoes, frozen veggies, chicken or not sure where you are (weather wise), but I have been buying the fresh pork chops, cheaper than frozen chicken here, and just a little more fat (but less than thighs); more protein per gram too!
if you have a problem with protein, milk is a great option; also look into beans or lentils. Cheap and high in protein, good course of carbs.
brb publix in the states always has B1G1 free stuff, let alone the tax is cheap there too (florida anyway)"Weights, Plates... Determining My own Fate": http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=164857211

Buy cheap foods you enjoy. I love white rich with bacon and hot chili sauce.
