i can relate. Meat is often very expensive. I have to buy mine on sale. I also eat beans and, less often, certain grains like long cooking brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat couscous, and barley. Wheat triggers me and causes the effects you described. It sounds like some of the whole grains might trigger you as well as they cause cravings, sleepiness, weigh gain. We all have to do the best we can and it sounds like you have a good plan for dealing with it. Exercise helps me a lot.
