Thank you for these ideas. I am going to pick up some PB2 next week once I get my finances straightened out and pay my past due debts. The hospital near my house sells PB2

If you are looking for a meat substitute you can try TVP. It is very low in sodium, but is not ready to eat. You have to add it to a meal to re-hydrate and give it flavor. I like peanut butter after a work out. You can buy the healthy types without added salt or sugar.

Best post workout snack ever is a massive glass of water, under ripe cold banana and a hard boiled egg! Feed the muscles with protein :-)

I buy organic dried black turtle beans and cook up a batch on the weekend. It lasts all week for me and hubby.
Soak them for 24 hours with a pinch of baking soda in the water, then rinse it before cooking. bring to boil and simmer 1 hour then let stand for a few hours in the pot, rinse well and store in the fridge. We have black beans almost every night. In salads or on their own with a little cheese and green salsa, mmm yum!

This is a great thread as I too need ideas. I also don't have a whole lot to spend on food for a family of 4 and am doing this new way of eating. We still eat dairy and eggs as well. Well we are just starting right now we are eating what we have in the house until I can go shopping on Thursday so I too am looking for all the ideas I can get. If I come across anything I will share as well. emoticon Stephanie

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Last year I did the World Vegetarian Day during October. It feed a hungry child for a year, or so the flier at work read. This year I'm doing it again. Although I was trying to lose weight last year as well as now, this year is different. I've eliminated processed food, need to up my protein as I work out 5 days a week for an hour at moderate to high intensity, have lowered my sodium to no more than 1500 mg a day for health reasons. Anyway, last year I was eating Boca, or Morningstar, and although those are good, they are high in the sodium I"m not supposed to have too much of. I'm also semi retired now so I have time to cook two days a week. I am wondering if you have any ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and my post workout snack? It's not hardcore, I'll still be eating dairy and eggs. I tried google, but just can't seem to find a lot of ideas. Oh, and until the end of this month, I'll only have like 25.00 every 2 weeks to spend on food. Thank you. :)
