id really like some help with getting my diet together. i dont have any goals for weight training (im into parkour so its a whole other ball game for working out wise).

currently i survive on wawa hoagies and frozen chicken (like popcorn style and bullshit) frozen pizzas, and some frozen fish. you know just bullshit local grocery store crap.

i just want to eat healthy for cheap and not get shit thats full of fat, hormones and bullshit.

whats a few good meals i can put together and survive and thrive on? im also considering trying foraging from nature within my local community, berries and roots, other things of that nature.

i just want to get as close to a diet as possible that resembles what my ancestors ate for the millions of years it took us to evolve. i really am not sure how to explain what i want, so ill try to make a short list of what i want.

1. lean meats that are not full of steroids and disgusting hormones (if its possible)

2. vegetables and fruits and different ideas on how to use them to their fullest.

3. meals that dont take forever to put together and maybe an option of raw meals with enough of the central shit my body needs.

i really dont know i guess, im just sick of eating food that i know is horrible for me. i want to put good things into my body, but im having a bit of a tough time really getting things layed out in my mind.

if anyone could be of any help that would be awesome.

thanks for the quick input, i left my post vague because im not going to eat for taste anymore.

im starting to find this whole eat for pleasure thing quite annoying, completely defeats the purpose of nourishing my body. i just want to spend as little as possible with nothing extravagant. im not looking for flavor packed foods, just food thats good for me and isnt a pain in the fucking dick to prepare.

im talking as simple as boiled chicken and broccoli. just more variety with what i should be putting in my body is helpful. im not really sure what foods i should actually be eating, ive been trained so wrong since birth so im really stuck in a rut with this one.

everyone above is correct

get fresh stuff

lean meats:
chicken breasts (skinless)
wings, legs, thighs (skinless)
[skinless is if you're super hardcore]
lean beef (idk, i usally just grab the least fatty filet mignon and grill it)

seafood:
seafood is amazing for you, and it tastes great when it's fresh.
salmon: pure protein, omega 3's, but high in metals, farm and fresh.
oysters: mad good, and if you get it from a good market, you can just eat them raw.
lobsters, crab, etc. this is probably gonna run up your shopping bill though :P.
really any kind of fish is great too, as long as it's fresh.
i prefer just grilling my fish, but you can boil it and make an awesome stew too. (throw in some potatoes, carrots, celery)

grains:
OATMEAL: its so dericious.
rice: i'm asian, come on. and brown rice is good for you ^^
pastas: you can make really great spaghetti with pre-made sauce and some ground beef. just boil the sauce, bring it to a simmer. in another pot, boil water, put spaghetti in, cook it. take out a pan, cook the beef a little bit, then throw it in the sauce pot. and then put all 3 in the pot and toss it.
wow that's weird i just wrote that out for no reason lol
potatoes: baked, cut into little slices and fried, mashed, etc.
cereal: self-explanatory. but not the commercial ones (cocoa puffs, etc.). kashi go lean tastes awesome.

fats:
eggs (leave some yolk): eggs are my fav cuz i pretty much make WHATEVER i want and put it into the eggs for a bangin' omelette.
olive oil and bread: dope
milk: yepp yepp.

-

i know how you feel. i used to eat like crap, but then i took up bbuilding a few years back and then i started to really watch what i ate.

it's not even a matter of thinking anymore, my body just prefers healthy food.
well.. except after i toke.. cuz then everything tastes good :D.

but normally, i would just pick the plain chicken breast over a fried drumstick covered in gravy because i'm just used to eating healthy.

it's more of a learned thing, just go back to the basics and eat food that has not been tampered with. (not pre-made, just hit the veggie section, chill with the butcher (not really, just ask him what's good and pick the non-artery clogging piece), go to the seafood section, etc).

e.g.
for most of my meals, i usually just make my grain (rice or pasta). grill the lean meat, or make the omelette (just throw some oil in the pan, cook it, and then put a sauce on it.)

hope that helped!
btw..
protein shakes really help curb hunger and get your body going, esp for parkour.
and protein won't make you massive. if you wanna get massive you have to lift A LOT. so don't worry about that. i think if you take some supps (vitamins, protein, maybe creatine if you want), your parkouring and stunt training will go by a lot quicker.
buut that's all up to you!

Great advice from everyone else thus far!

One thing that should be mentioned however, which you can buy in bulk on the cheap, is Quinoa, a highly protein rich grain that provides a very balanced composium of Amino Acids. It's just a very complete food and can be used for so many different things.

Some of the best stuff for you is also the cheapest.
1. Dried beans, rice, lentils, oats, and legumes. If you don't want to prepare these, you can find some of them in canned form.
2. Fruit Juices: You can get them in the frozen section for pretty cheap, and some are good quality. If you want to splurge, try for something like V8 or V8 splash.
3. Dried fruit. It's not as good as fresh fruit, and is higher in sugar and calories, but it's still fruit. Raisins are a great cheap source of fruit.
4. Eggs: Cheap, easy, and a good source of protein and fat.
5. Yogurt: you can find this for pretty cheap, in a variety of flavors. It's almost a perfect food, with carbs, protein, and fats. Try the Greek style, it's my favorite.
6. Frozen veggies: edamame (soy beans), broccoli, mixed veggies... very cheap, easy to make, and good for you.
7. Turkey and Chicken: sub these for ground beef.
8. Milk: If you buy the powdered stuff, this is a very cheap source of protein.
You could also cook the food in advance, freeze it in portions, and reheat as needed. Or invest in a slowcooker.
In general, eating healthy may take a bit longer to prepare, but you'll feel much better.
P.S.: A great way to save money is to cut out fast food, prepared foods, and soda. The healthier options will save you money.
Also, if you can, buy at farmer's markets or buy local. It can save money, and it's sometimes healthier.

Eat AS MUCH fresh food as you like. That means nothing with a bar code or fancy packaging: fresh fruit, berries, veggies, nuts, seeds, oats and whole grains. You'll feel amazing.
I actually eat mostly ONLY these foods, all in raw form, and it has done nothing but good for my stamina, health, stomach problems, among other things. Try it out, thats all i can recommend for ya.
