Hi Holly, emoticon to the team. emoticon it took me so long to find your thread. I'm glad you have been huddling so I figured you were new.
I haven't been on so much late.y with traveling to North Carolina for my Father in law's 80th birthday celebration.
School starts this week here in Missouri, so after a week of getting settled in, I hope to get back to a routine.
I love to cook up concoctions. I have re discovered the love of dried beans, and the enjoyment of healthy low cost meals.
With portion control (which I have been bad on lately) the menu stretches farther, it is the only cooking enough so the leftovers don't go to waste.
I sort of assumed you have a garden or get fresh veggies. If so, that is wonderful. I love to shop a store called Aldi's around here because they have great deals on fruits and veggies and things like eggs and dried goods. I mostly get all the other dried goods I can't find there at Walmart.
When I can get to Costco I like buying my Fage 0% Greek yogurt and frozen pineapple at Costco. Every day, sometimes twice a day, I have a pineapple yogurt mix with Almond milk.
I might try making my own Almond milk. I bought almonds at a good price at Aldi's a few weeks back, but have not had the guts to try to make it yet.
Again, emoticon to the team. Sincerely, Julia

Skinny taste better than butter!

Hi Holly!
Glad to meet you. I like Farmers Market but sometimes they cost more than going to the mexican Market or 99 cent store. I keep my eye out for good deals. If you need any recipes or cooking ideas, just ask!

Hi I am 30, live in SW Georgia, and wanting to continue eating healthy.
I help mom buy groceries sometimes and we are on a tight budget.
Throw in the fact that I am looking for a job.
So the farmer's market is out of the question.
I am starting to really love my veggies and learning to cook.
So maybe I can make friends and learn to cook at the same time.
Looking forward to getting to know you all. Add me if you want!
Have a good day! Your friend in healthy eating.
