Lobster was prison meat and salmon peasant meat once… Well that was in the distant past but still. I still don’t get the salmon thing, it’s great, wild salmon from the more or less clean rivers? But it was easy to get so lords didn’t eat it… How stupid.
Here chicken is the cheapest meat BY FAR. Of course not breast or fancy well-kept ones (but breast still costs as much as the cheapest pork). Organs are pretty cheap too, that’s neat as I love some of them Pork tongue has the best value/price ratio to me, I LOVE it.
I don’t think we should give up good food just because we are poor unless we have, like, $1-2 per day for food? I stop calculating with pound sterling now (Or more but at some expensive place).
My food money is like $3? (I am sure I go way higher on my off days. And my hungry ones. I don’t have an allotment, I just choose my items knowing I shouldn’t spend too much and hope for the best.) I could go lower on carnivore and keto but it would be tricky and slightly unpleasant.
