I haven't eaten grits in years, but I've replaced it with cream of brown rice (which is a good, nutrient rich starchy carb - well, it is brown rice) which looks, feels and tastes like grits AND you cook it just like how you would grits. A friend of mine put me on a few months ago.

I've been following a gluten free diet since joining SP and for various reasons so I've been purchasing gluten free foods. I've tried rice flour have to get used to the rice flavor and I've tried gluten free pancake mix which isn't bad at all. I will be trying more gluten free flours and mixing them to make things that are normally made with wheat or white flour. I also purchased gluten free spaghetti however I haven't prepared this yet.

Trying new foods is actually a challenge for me to tackle this month. So far I have tried- quinoa, couscous,PB2 & eggplant. I bought some chai seeds from amazon (not that expensive) but I have not tried them yet. Any suggestions would be helpful

I want to try acai but that is too expensive for me

Enjoy the journey.. it is a ride worth taking!

For a long time I stayed clear of asparagus, but just recently took the time to try to find out how to cook it quickly w/o it getting slimy (I like okra so go figure). I decided to go with it because it's a natural diuretic and I NEED that in my life. My mom never made asparagus or anyone in my family for that matter. All you do is drop some Extra Virgin Olive Oil on there with some seasonings and bake it on a sheet for 10 mins. I even know how to go about snapping the hard stems off.

Jackfruit - Buy in a jar at any asian food market
Lychees fresh - You peel back the hard nut like shell and eat the fruit inside. It's very sweet. You an buy them canned too at any asian food market.

What are some new foods you want to try but are too expensive or you don't know how to cook it? I'd love to try chia seeds (too expensive), fresh jackfruit, mangosteens and lychees (not shipped to the midwest) and hemp milk (what do I do with it?).
