So my parents are very understanding and 100% open towards lifting and i can workout whenever and how long i please. They are already covering gym expenses and food for me, but my main problem is protein dense food options are quite expensive, where i live. I try to go for sales and things like that but it adds up quickly. Any tips on cheap protein options, and or stores in my area (maybe costco?) Trying to help my parents out y'know?

Thanks!

eggs, whatever chicken is cheaper(thighs in some areas are cheaper than breasts), other fattier meats, beans, milk, lentils, greek yogurt.

You don't need to overthink this at your age.

Cheese? Really? Btw just read through your cutting thread, and ive learnt alot from it. Ive even thought about cutting despite not being overweight by any means, changed my mind for sure!

Find places where they sell produce/meat cheaper.

String cheese, at least here in the US, is pretty cheap and ~8g of protein per stick.

You live in Canada, whole food doesn't get much cheaper than there (except in the US). Simple supermarket butchery section will do, pick store packaged filleted breasts, fish (hake), rump/sirloin cuts of beef, eggs, green veggies, rice, oatmeal, sweet potatoes...you get my drift. Buying unprocessed foods without fancy packaging or (semi)pre-prepared is dirt cheap when compared to the convenience alternatives.
