I just re applied for food stamps. Im courious as to how ppl eat when there on food stamps. I know when I had them in the begining I didnt eat healthy like I do now. Im more the fruits and veggies type now. More of the all natural. I dont buy expensive steaks, I hunt for a majority of my meat.(elk mostly) and I dont buy the crab or **Expensive** Lifestyle. So tell me. Are you a processed foods?? (pizza, frozen dinners, ect) Or do you eat more healthy like the fruits and veggies type??

I'm not much of a healthy eater since I don't like a lot of things but I'm not extremely unhealthy.

When I had food stamps I was eating like a queen. Steaks, lobster, crabs, pies.

Now I'm not on them and think eating a hot pocket is the sweet life.

We eat healthy and we are on FS. DH got a new job, and work has been picking up, so I don't think we will get them much longer. As a family of four, we get $300 a month. With DS's needs we cannot eat a lot of processed foods.

See I did before but now that I have to budget my life theres no room for splurging like that.

 Both.  I like steak though and I do buy soda with my food stamps.  But I do like broccoli and carrots and salads lol.  Oh and apples.

I think whether your using food stamps or not, there are those who eat healthy, those who don't and those in the middle. I am in the middle. I drink a lot of soda but we also eat a lot of fruits and veggies. We also eat organic meats when we can afford them.
