Neat idea, Rev
Fewer calories, let's say 500 per meal (three meals a day of around 500, plus drinks and snacks will quickly put a person over the top for daily calories). I came in at around $6.50/meal for my hypothetical chicken thighs, carrots, brown rice and milk (buried somewhere back there, lol) for three people. But that was with leftover rice and milk
Oh, wait, you mean actually cook it? Okay, that could be fun. I'll get back to you in a few days though (already set for the next couple days - we do leftovers, unlike you foodies ).
I say under $10 for three, cuz I told Disney that was really easy to do. Let's see if it actually is, with meals from different parts of the country.
Balanced, nutritious, and calorically sufficient, right?
