How to eat frugally?

HungrySenior | Mar 14, 201502:29 AM     253

I am struggling to eat on my budget. Can you help me figure out how to eat as healthy as possible? I am a disabled senior. My only transportation is a power wheelchair. The three food store choices nearby are Trader Joe's, Smith's (Kroger) and an Asian grocery. I have less than $25/month in cash after expenses, plus get $101/month SNAP. That gives me about $1.08/meal to work with. If you were me, how would you plan a month's meals and what would you eat? I need all the ideas I can get. Thank you.
