Hi and welcome! I know what you mean about variety on a slim budget. I use alot of seasonings that I keep in the refridgerator. All my spices are organized in my uprightright freezer door. If a recipe calls for onions or garlic I'll use pwrdered or minced if I don't have fresh. When recipes call for dry white wine, I get it at Walmart for $1.97. I buy Tilapia cheap, and make my own fish tacos. It calls for shredded cabbage and it's actually yummy. I do buy expensive low carb tortillas, but I freeze them separately so I dont have to have tacos everyday just to use up the tortillas.
Fat-free cheese can cost more so I just buy regular sharp cheddar, shred it and use less in recipes thus cutting calories. The extra fat in the cheese keeps me full longer.
Good luck!!!!!

Hello everyone! This is probably about the 3rd time I've tried the Spark Diet. My hangup is that I get sick of having to cook the same old things over and over. We are on a VERY tight budget, and it seems like so many of the recipes require more ingredients than I've got and/or pricy foods. I'm hoping that with a little help, I'll be able to get new ideas to help me stick with the program. :)
