ramen noodles with frozen peas/corn/soybeans and ground beef/chicken/turkey added. Pepper oil for extra kick.
cost about .25 per meal if you get one of those 10/1 ramen deals.
I lived on that stuff as an undergrad, and the cost hasn't significantly increased in 20 years.
if you live near the coast and have a commercial fishing fleet nearby, you can often get great deals on fish if you buy straight from the docks at the END of the day, just before they give up to go home.
used to commonly get fresh king salmon (whole) for a buck a pound. Flounder and Rockfish even cheaper.
