Is it just me here that I served in a military school and was a cadet? When I was studying at a military school, in the late 90s, our ration cost 14 rubles a day, the school's budget. And as you understand, nobody suffered from scurvy :-)

1) breakfast - always some kind of porridge (pearl barley, buckwheat, wheat), tea, bread (20 grams), butter (20 grams)

2) lunch - soup (usually the cheapest, or with cabbage or broth with pasta. For the second, usually potatoes or pasta, compote

3) dinner - usually stewed cabbage or mashed potatoes, rarely porridge ... For "dessert" fruit from compote.

I can say that for 2,000-3,000 rubles, you can eat quite healthy food for a month and eat not only buckwheat. Which, by the way, is rarely given in military schools, it is expensive :-)

Look for products with discounts in stores. Use cashback. You can fish yourself or, as an example, pick mushrooms, fruits, berries in the nearest forest.

I would like to add information about the markets to all of the above. If there are food markets in your city, you are very lucky! As a student, I can recommend a few life hacks:

  1. Come to the close of the market. Many sellers give unsold goods for much less money (for example, there are only 2-3 zucchini left).

2. Choose seasonal products. On the market, in principle, everything is seasonal, but it is better to orient yourself in advance in terms of the menu for a week or two and buy nuts, cereals, vegetables with this in mind.

  1. Possibility to ask for an "ugly" product. A very convenient topic: every seller has a mashed peach that most likely no one will buy and which the seller will gladly sell you for half the price!

  2. Haggle! That's what the market is for, so you can try to negotiate a small discount on the product.

Well, in conclusion, I want to add that the markets really have a large selection in terms of healthy food. And what to cook from it, it's up to you to decide :)

I myself am currently a student. I live in a dormitory, and every month with the boys in the room we discount for food for a month, which is about 500-600 rubles. Approximately 70-80% of the daily diet consists of natural products (excluding factory-made dairy products) such as potatoes, rice, buckwheat, various types of pasta, and others. Plus I have a vegetarian diet. In the morning I usually eat semolina or oatmeal, but at school I run to the cafeteria and eat a set lunch there (70-90 rubles), if finances do not allow, then I have to buy bakery products + hot tea or coffee (30-50 rubles). In the afternoon I cook soup with potatoes or fried potatoes. And for dinner we cook potato and pasta soup, or we cook rice. And yet I can't say that I eat quite fully - at times I have to starve a little. But it is better this way than eating various harmful junk foods, thereby exposing your body to various diseases.

If you train yourself to eat daily soup and porridge from any kind of cereal (rice, wheat, millet, buckwheat, rolled oats ...), you will already move towards a healthy diet. And it's not expensive at all. Next - cabbage, carrots, onions and garlic - the student's friends. A salad of all this, seasoned with sour cream, is quite tasty and very healthy. Beets are good too. With garlic, season with sour cream. It is better to refuse mayonnaise.

Further - canned fish or herring - a source of beneficial omega-3 acids. Meat is best consumed in the form of chicken. Buy (but not boilers pumped with fat) whole, butcher and cook soup from the ridge, bake or stew legs.

Do not buy semi-finished products and ready-made store desserts, it is better to cook jams in summer and consume them as sweet in winter.

Honestly, it's hard to imagine anything other than healthy buckwheat with healthy seasonal vegetables and chicken. When I practiced healthy eating, I was unpleasantly surprised by the increased costs. One and a half times, Karl!

Because in order to more or less diversify the menu (brown rice instead of white, legumes, different types of meat, not only white fish, but also red, and even the same vegetables ) - money is needed.

Above, they talk about sandwiches. But kakbe so that the sandwiches are healthy, it is advisable to take not a loaf, but gray or grain bread, and put on it not cheap pate or sausage, but baked meat or chicken. Do you feel the difference in the price of a regular sandwich and a healthy one?

What can I advise to save money: buy chicken, fish, etc. not in parts, but whole and cut it yourself. It is cheaper, the carcass will be enough for several meals, and the bones will be used for soup.

Frozen vegetables can be purchased by weight in large chain stores. Groats - in the same place. For breakfast - porridge (it is possible on the water, cheaper. Wheat, millet, corn grits are cheap and well-nourishing).

Minced meat dishes are quite healthy and inexpensive. Cutlets can be made for future use and frozen.

By the way, freezing is a topic. You can freeze everything. Cooked cheese cakes or potato cutlets, raw cutlets, broth.

Cooked is one time healthier than the one standing in the refrigerator.

But, to be honest, the scholarships are still not enough even taking into account the savings. Excluding meat is the most significant part of the cost. Otherwise, it would be nice to have some other source of income. Healthy food is expensive today.

You need to learn how to cook yourself. Develop 4 menus, one for a week, and then alternate. There will be no big pickles. There will be one main course per week for each day that can be supplemented. You may need to adjust the classic meal to fit your study schedule. Learn to cook sandwiches yourself, do not be lazy to cut a salad of simple vegetables, ferment cabbage in a 3-liter jar, you don't need a lot of mind. Turn on your wits and don't be lazy, everything will work out.
