Cheapest nutrition

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

pasta works for me, i like to boil them a little longer for easier digestion.
vinegar is also important and has anti cancer properties

Yep, in S. Italy it's pasta fagioli. The more money, the more meat until there's almost no difference between peasant and royal food. In the US, even the poor want to eat "high on the hog." How many people here eat chicken feet, and forget about tripe, testicles, or tails. My point is that "cheapest" may not be the best way to describe what one wants when it comes to nutrition. If someone can afford it, buy the best food that you like.

remember you have to break the garlic and leave it to air for a couple of minutes
to get the full benefit; for tomatoes you have to cook them slightly.

I have not eaten red meat in more than 40 years.
My whole life has been at an activity level above the average.
Many vegans make a big mistake. Mucous foods.

Prof Arnold Ehret wrote some pamphlets about it. About Mucousless diet.
Tragic that he died relatively young after slipping on horse shit
leaving a carriage garage in Beacon Hill Boston and hitting the back of his head.

Basically bringing this up in response to what seems
like ridiculous advice to eat pasta. The responses here seem more
Bon Appetite than nutrition.

sounds like an interesting idea. wonder if TCM concepts have some similarity. maybe "dampness"?

most of the major diets considered healthy (such as Mediterranean diet) have a lot of overlap such as
- limited starch, no sugar, no processed foods, limited red meat, limited caffeine
- rainbow of veggies
- higher fiber
- whole grains, but not too many
- more healthy fats
- eat slowly
- don't overeat

https://health.usnews.com/best-diet/bes ... ting-diets has a "ranking" (rankings always sell). I like the idea of doing the overlap at really low budget.

Sweet potatoes are considered a superfood. Lots of those potatoes now here were I live, very cheap.
They are loaded with vitamin A(beta carotene), most B vitamins, and vitamin C
Dietary fibers for a healthy stomach...
Yam(-potatoes) here are plenty too and quite cheap,,,very healthy too, especially for men, they say...

if you eat a lot of pasta, but be sure to sneeze it out, you can have legendary boxer levels of health and energy.

Peanut butter is Tops

The mucous thing is the reason all those vegans look pasty white.

White rice causes it

Prof Ehret was a standup guy - legend is that he would cut his arm first
days lecture then 3 days later show it healed. Claimed that the secret
is in developing purity of the blood.

no question i should cut back on the white stuff (sugar, bread, rice, etc), and most people probably should. ugh I just ate a cookie. haven't had any Halloween candy today, though.
