30 Bananas a Day!

Hey, I might have financial trouble in the future and I want to prepared. How do I feed myself, cat, and dog cheaply? Note my job is physically demanding, so what's a good balance between health and cost?

http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/92/5/1181/T1.expansion.html

From this table I'm best off with grains at .14 $/100 kcal Am J Clin Nutr. 2010 Nov; 92(5): 1181–1188.

Yet, I have no experience cooking grains for my dog and cat. How much Taurine supplements will my cat need? Will I need any other supplements for my cat and dog?

Thanks in advance.

Oatmeal is known for being cheap, I was thinking about feeding my dog oatmeal, maybe the cat will like it too. Any thoughts or experience. I need anecdotal evidence and scientific evidence would be nice.

I found this site :

https://www.avma.org/news/javmanews/Pages/150915_TOC.aspx

"Most diets assessed in this study were not compliant with AAFCO labeling regulations, and there were concerns regarding adequacy of AA content. Manufacturers should ensure regulatory compliance and nutritional adequacy of all diets, and pets fed commercially available vegetarian diets should be monitored and assessed routinely." Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association August 15, 2015, Vol. 247, No. 4, Pages 385-392

Which means that you gotta be careful when feeding commercial vegetarian pet food. The statement also means its possible to feed a cat/dog a healthy vegetarian diet.

Found some anecdotal evidence:

"

With her doctor's guidance, she began whipping up batches of pinto beans, brown rice and sweet potatoes each week. She fed them to 4-year-old Cleo, a German shepherd/pit bull mix, twice daily with a dose of probiotics at lunch to help her digest.

Five months later, Cleo's ear infection is gone" Emanuella Grinberg, CNN March 10, 2011
