If you want the official definition of food, you will find out that: “Any consumed substance that provides essential nutritional support for the body can be defined as food” and that is probably the answer that a scientist would give you as well, however, if you ask any cook, he would tell you that food is so much more than “body’s nutritional support”, and that when you enjoy in your food, the whole universe is there with a sole purpose of making you feel happy.

Ok, now that we know what food is, it’s time to discuss some more serious, food related topics. Even though the entire population of the world is full aware of the fact that our planet provides more than enough food for everyone, we still have people all over the world that go to bed on an empty stomach, or even the entire villages starving to death. This is completely unacceptable for the 21st century, especially when we consider how much the human race has evolved, and what amazing technological achievements have been made in the last 100 years. If every nation realized that if they only eat as much as they need, not as much as they can, the problem of the world hunger would be solved, and we would live in a much better place. However, that scenario is not likely going to happen, at least not in the next 100 years or so, and we are still going to have countries where food is considered as a luxury ,and when compared with the standard in that country (by standard, we mean how much money can an average family make in one month, and how much do they need for a monthly supply of necessary food), it sold for a quite high price. On the other hand, we have countries where the standard is much higher and where food is sold for a really low price, and the money spent on food is the last thing on the list of monthly bills, and where people could even donate food to the ones that are less fortunate, without overloading their home budget.

In order for us to create a real list of countries that have the cheapest food, backed up with real valid facts, and where you can actually go and buy food or go to a restaurant and have a dinner without getting killed or disappearing, we had to do some serious research, and compare many prices. In our quest to find the best source for prices of the cost of living, we found the Numbeo site, which offers the prices of everything you need for living, from all over the world. So, you will see that we have included the monthly cost for food (we have calculated how much money is needed to buy each of the following items every day, for one month: 1l of milk, 1 Loaf of bread, 1kg of boneless chicken breast, 1kg of potatoes, 1kg of white rice, 1kg of tomatoes, 12 eggs, 1kg of local cheese, 1kg of lettuce, and 1kg of apples). We have also included the country’s average price of 3-course meals for 2 persons, as well as the most popular meals in the country, in case you don’t plan on moving to that country and preparing your food by yourself, but, for example, go there on a vacation and skip the part where you will be stuck in the kitchen, and have lunches and dinners in restaurants. Our list starts with the country that has the highest price of food, from the cheapest ones in the world of course, and goes down to the most budget friendly, as far as the food is concerned. However, before we begin naming the countries, we have to tell you that the restaurant prices were not included when we ranked the countries, but are there just to give you more information. Without further ado, we present you the Top 11 World Countries Where You Can Eat Great Food Really Cheap.
