Hang in there brother. I could imagine maybe buying butter, some cheap cuts of meat, maybe some dairy like cheese i f the food stamps cover that? Hope you get back on your feet soon mate. You could try dumpster diving. Maybe you can find what ytou are looking for behind costcos etc. Some dude has a blog where he lives an organic lifestyle, gets all his shit for free and travels round like a bohemian bob dylan.

I hope you can find some assistance with a job, I feel for you. As for low-carb with food stamps and no means to cook food, I would suggest canned/packets of meats and fish- tuna, salmon, smoked oysters and crab, potted meat, Vienna sausages, deviled ham, chicken (these things may have nitrates and additives, but they won't kill you and will provide you with needed protein and fat! If you can, try to find a small insulated cooler bag at Goodwill, so you can fill it up with ice (use a water cup) from a gas station or fast food place. With a little cooler, you can get yourself some cheese and some crunchy veggies for roughage. Good luck, mate!!

definitely canned fish like tuna, sardines, salmon, mussels, clams.

nuts/seeds, nut butter, coconut oil/butter. these things are so calorically dense so they will help to fill you up. i'd say dried fruit just because it keeps so well but the carbs add up super fast.

canned coconut milk, beef jerky, beef sticks, avocados, tomatoes, salt.

I've noticed Friday night food shopping has pretty cheap things.

anyway, I hope this helps and just stay strong. I haven't worked in about 1.5 years and was denied disability. it's very hard considering I can't work due to my illness and am in and out of the hospital. the medical bills/prescriptions add up so fast!!!

I hope you get back on your feet soon! D:

Premade Baked or Rotisserie chicken from the supermarket Fresh Vegetables and fruits (baby carrots, apple, oranges, pre-cut canteloupe and watermelon, lettuce).

Chocolate; I buy a cheap brand that only has three ingredients excluding milk.

Raw nuts, I get them cheap from my worlds market.

Drink water!

Anything pre-made with little ingredients.

Lots and lots of beef jerky.

(Though I'm not sure if this is your priority right now...)
