Wow, I know this, it's so hard to eat healthy when money is scarce. Unfortunately the only foods that are cheap are usually the unhealthy ones. I watch for sales on fruits and veges and bulk up. I freeze what I can, and try to figure a menu before I go to the store. When berries are on sale. I wash them and get rid of pesticides when not organic with a solution of 1/4 of vinagar and a big bowl of water, I let them soak for 20 or more minutes. Then I prepare them lay them out on a cookie sheet with wax paper and put in freezer. What makes this cool, is they don't clump together that way, and measuring out for smoothie or cereal is a breeze. Are you eligible for food stamps? You can get food that way, and pretty much anything healthy.
Question: How were u diagnosed with HBP being thin, what was causing it? Mine has always been my weight, I lose about 10 lbs and my BP is almost normal reading. Another thing I do is look at sales papers from the stores and determine where to buy my stuff. It's become a organized effort on my part to get myself back on track.
I too have had 2 weeks or so, with not enough money for food. But somehow I manage and I also have a friend, that will not let me starve. She and her family are health conscience so it works out nice. I may eat with them a couple of times a month, and it's usually very good and healthy food.
They are not as strict as I but they use good healthy products, like silk, fish (salmon on the grill) and sides of a good leafy salad.

Just started my day so let the mind games begin. I know I will try to "fool" myself all day with what I can get away with, but since I started tracking it makes it harder and harder to justify... emoticon
