I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae - happily maintaining since 1/2009
Jspeed, Welcome to the team - glad you're joining us!!
And like Morticia says, we do what we can with what we have!! I tend to buy a lot of the inexpensive meats, then cook them slow - either in a crockpot or the oven - then they're tender and make for some very flavorful eating. More flavor sometimes than the more expensive cuts!

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.

I prefer to keep carbs low every day, but sometimes I cannot afford meat, so I go to the legumes and a few grains. And, when I don't have much meat, I want sweets--go figure! I'm trying exercising this month instead of caving to fatty sweets--comfort exercise, and a couple of short almost-naps. This looks like a great team.
