    You can do this with almost any mix of vegetables and meat (as long as it's not cut thick). You can also take leftover rice any stir fry it with anything you like, tomato, tuna, eggs, ham etc...

      guanciale can be replaced with pancetta. pecorino can be replaced with parmesan

      the first recipe looks good and very doable.
      but for the second and third I just cant afford the cheese or seasoning (im from vietnam)

      is there any soup or stew you recommend?

        >and third I just cant afford the seasoning
        it's parsley, garlic and olive oil with pasta. doesn't get much cheaper than that. the chili is optional if you want some heat. you use dried flakes too

          I make $220 a month and a bottle of olive oil (1 liter) is $15. its literally 6-8 times more expensive than 1 liter of veggie oil. parley is 5 times more expensive than garlic at the very least. all the other things I can buy though

          >soup or stew
          In 15 mins? That's a tall order. Typically those types of dishes require extended cooking times. The only way to get that time down is to use processed ingredients, which defeats the purpose of wanting the recipe to be healthy and balanced. Even the simplest broths take at least a half hour of cooking.
          Unfortunately, if you want convenience and nutrition, you're gonna be stuck in the world of sandwiches, salads and wraps.

          ok my bad for not elaborating further, if its stew or soup the time has to be extended I agree. But ultimately I just want it to be something easy to cook and not easy to mess up because im not a good cook.

          >pecorino can be replaced with parmesan
          Like fookin hell it can, you have the palate of a toad if you think they're interchangable. That's like saying "if you don't have goat cheese, use some aged gouda".
          Pecorino is bright and acidic, it's closer to feta cheese in flavor. Parmigiano is earthy and sweet. As far as Italian hard cheeses go, they form opposite ends of a spectrum.

          I am aware of that. OP isn't looking for 100% authentic cuisine. carbonara with top tier 36 month old parmesan is better than with low tier pecorino in my opinion. unfortunately good pecorino romano is really hard to find outside of italy simply because it's very niche unlike parmesan. it's the same story with guanciale

          I can't afford cheese, cream, butter of any kind. I mean technically I can but it would cost me way over my budget. only fat I can use comfortably is veggie oil, pork fat (grease), margarine.

              You only need lard.
              also [...]
              I'm dead serious.
              Just eat eggs in many forms, and drink milk and water. Vinamilk is cheap as frick.

              ok, lard is good and I like the taste too. but what about eating 6 eggs? isn't that 3 times more than the daily recommendation? I don't want organ damage
              I do have milk in my vietnamese coffee though

                And who decides this daily recommendation for you?
                Milk in vietnamese coffee is full of sugar. Drink plain milk. No-sugar Vinamilk.
                also stop drinking coffee and see how much you save each month.

            Okay, so obviously you need to work with the ingredients that are cheap around you, those recipes are made for people who live in Europe or America. I would recommend asking more Vietnamese people for easy recipes.
            Is chicken cheap by you? Get some boneless chicken and learn a quick marinade for it. Whenever you want to cook it, you just fry it up with some vegetable that you like and put it on some rice or in a tortilla. You can play around with different marinades and veggies so you don't get bored with it, try something mexican or italian sometime.

              Try this recipe, Vietanon.

              Vietnamese marinade for 1kg chicken meat cut in cubes:

              >juice of 2 limes
              >50ml each: soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger-garlic paste, vegetable oil
              >25ml fish sauce
              >handful of finely chopped coriander, shallot, red chili
              Rest for minimum 30 minutes, maximum 3 days.

            why not just buy a cheap banh mi or similar street food every day

              Not op but street food is shit health wise. Especially in vietnam since they use the shittiest ingredients. As in not just a cheap cut of meat but literally rotten meat. And sanitation is 0.

        Use whatever seasoning you like and it's accessible where you live you don't have to follow the recipe 1:1, experiment, the cheese just don't use it if it's too expensive.

    Whats your current diet?

      usually I buy minced meat (pork or beef), some green veggies like bok choy or spinach, etc...
      some aromatic like ginger, garlic, shallot whatever and just stir fry them all together.
      sometimes I add potato, carrot, eggplant or any other things I can find at a discount. if I need to fill myself more then I'd stir fry instant noodles or old rice from the fridge

      I think need to eat more eggs

    >buy protein

    >buy coleslaw or lettuce

    Cook the steak or chicken on the stove. Boil water. Add veggies or potatoes/rice. Make a salad or dress coleslaw. Do this a few times and you'll eventually be able to get it done in 15-20 mins even if you're a cooklet

    If you spent half of that on food, that comes out to 88k per day
    Thats very tight since 1l milk is already 40k
    you wont get fat on 1l of milk a day. The problem for you is $.
    see if you can find milk from a farmer. You can probably get it for cheaper than supermarket.
    where i live sardines are like 150k/kg which is maybe same as pork and cheaper than beef
    how much did you spend on that meal tonight?

      yes I'm surprised you know the average price of milk in my country. I suppose I could get cheaper price if I choose less popular brand or buy milk from a farm like you said? but it'd only happen if I buy in large quantity. maybe I can afford 300-500ml a day for now.

      there are not so cheap but still affordable fish for me like basa and tilapia, and a few more but I dont know the name in english. I just hate the bones because at this price I can't be picky and buy fillet only.

      I spent probably $1.75 for what I ate tonight, but if I include rice or other carb with what I cook, it could actually be 2 servings, so I think 90c for each serving is a fair assumption.

        im vietnamese brother. the diet of the average viet lacks hugely in dairy and good fat since they use mostly vegetable oil so if you want to improve your diet, thats what you should concentrate on. 1l milk is only 600kcal and with shitty milk its probably even less. i would try to get in at least that much in a day though. ideally youd want even more but thats gonna be difficult with your budget.
