It has come to the point where I have so little income as to want to maximize it's use. New gear purchases are breathing down my neck to be made. Right now I'm taking home <$100 weekly. My major expense, therefore, is food. I'm trying to come up with a healthy, cheap diet that also jives with my desire to not spend time cooking. My first thought was plain rice (white or brown), but this would probably be nutritionally-lacking in some aspect, most notably protein. So, I'd like to know what people here think would be essential to a low-cost diet. Anything that could be cooked with rice would be a plus, and I have no food allergies, though I prefer to avoid yellow corn. White corn is fine, though. I'm also going to try to have only stuff that can be kept at room temperature, so I can unplug my fridge. That isn't a set-in-stone requirement, though. So, any suggestions?
