Yes it is more expensive than living on pasta and bread. But it's so worth it. As you're unemployed honestly I wouldn't worry about getting organic, grass fed stuff etc just yet. Even cutting out grains and sugar will do your health the world of good. If you're smart and shop around you won't have to spend a fortune. Lidl for one example is very chjeap, you can get great bargains on fruit and veg, and they have a lot of frozen seafood.
