I get in trouble every single time I listen to my stomach or my head. Head hunger is much worse than stomach hunger for me. emoticon

Those are such great alternatives to pasta and potatoes too. I have always been an avid pasta lover, but I think I like zucchini noodles better. I'm still trying to find a satisfying way to make the mashed cauliflower taste good to me. I love cauliflower but it just tastes a bit odd to me as mock potatoes. Any suggestions on flavorings to add to it, Susie?

I don't eat those but do find bargains on zucchini that I slice into noodles or fettuccine shape and cauliflower which I make mock mash potatoes or mock rice.

My daughter, Mary, and I walked 5 blocks to the bus stop. Then we went to Walgreen's drug store & bought 18 Sugar-free Easter Chocolate covered Marshmallow eggs. Mexican market is in same shopping center & bought 3 avocados, 1 bunch green onion, 4 brown onions, 3 green bell pepper, 1 red bell pepper. 2 zucchini, 2 1.5-oz bags of salted peanuts and 1 50-pk of fresh made corn tortillas. Spent only $14 between Walgreens and Mexican market.

Anyone finding good deals? I'm getting my veggies at the local outdoor farmer's market. They grow organically but don't charge as much as the stores and are cheaper.

Vegan Way to make this-

Healthy Dinner

* 4 cups broccoli florets, frozen or fresh
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
* 1 lb tofu, cut into thin strips, seasoned with veggie chicken flavoring

I buy a lot of things when they are on offer such as yogurts, butter, oats(I buy there biggest bag available) I try not to buy too much at our Co-op as it is expensive, I try to make things myself and not to buy ready meals as they are usually salt laden.

I have been on road for awhile. It is expense when trying to buy food without the opportunity to prepare as in home. I don't like how I feel eating food I don't prepare my way. I will figure out and compensate as time goes. Have a great week everyone.

I have a lot of steel cut oatmeal in the pantry.
I eat two servings in the morning. I have well over 110 servings, so this and a piece of fruit should keep my breakfasts going for well over 3 months.
I wonder if other people buy dry goods in bulk when they are on sale?
Sincerely, julia

Well I figure I should focus on what is in the pantry.
For breakfast I made some quick cook steel cut oats with a partial can of pumpkin, some all spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. I added stevia for a wonderful sweetness.
My husband is going to make me a emoticon Cake. I plan on enjoying and savor ing the moments.

I bought a beef pot roast Friday for $3.29 per pound. 3#=$9.87
Then a 2# bag of Carrotts for 79 cents and previously bought 4# bag of potatoes for $2.29
I used about 1/3 bag of potatoes, and all the Carrotts.
Some I'm up to $11.43 before tax. Every one of us four enjoyed a wonderful supper treat and there was leftovers for 3 of us the next day.
The slow cooker had a lot of wonderful juice so I added 12 servings of Great Northern Beans and 6 serving of brown rice to juice and have about six big meals of beans and rice for my lunches (or quick dinners).
I would estimate the beans and rice are around 25 cents per meal.
The roast/potatoes/Carrotts were around $1.65 per meal. We had big portions at dinner and leftovers.
What a treat. I enjoyed the rice and beans as I type this. Wonderful as well as cost effective.
If I had a butcher near by I would see if I could buy soap bones cheap. This would make a wonderful base for my rice and beans when I don't have the luxury of a big roast.
I wish I could share this meal with you in person, but hopefully this is special too.
Sincerely, Julia

I so would love to go grocery shopping. Saturday evening I made 10 servings of dried navy beans with 10 servings of rice blends. Added broth and hot sauce and cooked overnight in slow cooker. I divided into 290 no serving size and froze some and refrigeratored some. That has been my main meals Sunday, Monday and today with my yogurt/pineapple for breakfast each morning. The beans and rice blends together is really good. I did add some Worcestershire sauce my sister had left here with garlic powder and ghost pepper sauce my DH boss gave us from his vacation. My stomach has a different kind of hole in it from the hot sauce. Can't eat too much. Have a great week everyone. Oh..... I found some cut celery in a draw in the frog from grad party over holiday weekend. Very happy treat :-)

I get my Xylitol at the Nutrition store. It's not cheap unfortunately, but it does last me 3 months, so total cost is $5 a month.
The crystallized ginger came in a packet from Food bank last year. I keep it in the freezer.
Teriyaki sauce can be made with Splenda or Stevia and powdered ginger.

I'm not familiar with the sweetener nor that form of ginger. Is this in your local grocery stores or do you order on Internet?

Wow Susan, those meals sound wonderful. I am so happy your DD is doing so wonderful thanks to both you and her dedication. That is emoticon .
On another part of this site someone mentions an "INflamation Rating" system. I did a search and it looked like a lot of interesting information on foods that are positive and negative for INflamation .
Maybe there could be away to eliminate the 10% in the future. It is nice when our children don't have pain. Tis is wonderful news.
Thanks for sharing.

Money is so tight due to so many expenses due at once. I am getting very creative making meals with what I have on hand.
Made a Mexican meal past couples of onion, red & green bell pepper, soy black beans, diced tomatoes, chicken pieces cut from an 8 oz breast. Added cumin, Mrs Dash's Chili Lime & Chili powder.
Last night I slice zucchini lengthwise into narrow thin strips then cut those in thirds to resemble egg noodles. Made an Alfredo sauce with butter, cream & mozzarella. Sauteed the zucchini in oil and bacon bits, added 3 oz foil packed salmon.

My daughter loved these meals. I have her off all starches and sugar for a year now and her muscle pain is down 90%.

emoticon Susan, that's a nice thing for you to say. You have a good point. Aldi's is about 8 miles away. So round trip is just over a gallon of gas in truck and less than a gallon in DH car. I save a lot of money when no one takes me emoticon . The veggie stand sold me avocado for 4/$1 because they were mushy. Wow, perfectly ripe for me. I have had avocado sandwiches for the last two days. I bought a cucumber and tomatoes and jalapenos to slice on top of some German rye toast. emoticon yummy. Life is so fantastic emoticon take care everyone.

Skinny taste better than butter!

I have no idea what is on sale this week. Lit'l shack opened yesterday. It is close to the house and I can buy locally grown produce there. It is a husband and wife trying to make enough to pay taxes on their land so it isn't taken away. That is what happened to many as our town grows and the city wants big business to come in. Three families had their property condemned so Sam come in. Their homes torn down and now that same property is for sale for more stuff to get packed in. It is so frustrating. So, this Lit'l shack cost more than Aldi's, but I want to support this family to be able to keep this property. I will find other areas to cut back. God will reveal in His timing. Happy weekend. I'm going to go get some Navy beans soaking. Sincerely, Julia

DH took me to Aldi's today. Quick shopping for baby carrots 99 cents per pound, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, 2# of dried Great Northern Beans, some frozen red raspberries, and some green bananas at 29 cents per pound. I think that was it besides a bag of potato chips and some Moose Track ice cream for my DDs . Oh, I bought eggs and some more egg substitute. I figure by mid week the banana will be ripe and I can make some banana bread with the egg substitute and whole wheat flour. I was able to get some flaxseed last night, so I'm excited to bake with these healthy ingredence.
I put together a great pancake recipe using egg substitute, oatmeal, almond milk (cow milk will do too). It was very good. If you want me to share the recipe, just ask. But since your dd doesn't like eggs I didn't know if you ever made just for yourself.

Good morning Susan. Well I had some of them dumpster diving egg substitute emoticon for breakfast ... Wonderful emoticon I'm glad I found them too. Well, as long as I don't get food poisoning ... emoticon
I put some onions, and mushrooms and kale in with them. After all that I was still able to add pineapple and cottage cheese to the meal with coffee. I real over did with food but not too much calorie. So, it is a great morning of spoiling myself a little. I better get some work done, but first I want to send you a goodie my friend. Have a great day Susie emoticon
