I have been somewhat slacking this week... for sure. We had a lot going on, getting a new state law passed in honor my brother who passed, and then I went to NYC over the weekend. I haven't really been eating terrible but the exercise dropped off for a week or so there. Ugh... back at it today, I just did the 30 day shred today for 20 mins.

I can tell a huge difference in my appetite in general. I mean I used to easily be able to eat a 12" sub from Subway by myself (and chips and a cookie and a soda lol) and now I barely get thru a 6" and a half of a bag of baked chips before I'm feeling completely stuffed. Same thing my dad got me a little tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream the other day as my cheat cheat and I took like maybe 6 bites and started being like ugh full, can't even imagine eating half the tub let alone the full one. So I know my stomach has shrunk and I don't really crave bad things anymore. I had a diet dr. pepper in NY and the rest of the time, I got water.

I'm having a really rough time finding food that is cheap, can last the week, and won't go bad... that I actually want to eat. Rick and I can use $40 (sometimes a bit more, depending on work) per week on food. He is a larger person and eats more than I, so usually he'll spend about $25-30 and I'll spend $15-20. Any ideas? This entire week I've had nachos for dinner (chips are cheap and the cheese was on mega-sale, we make our own salsa) and usually a rice cake with peanut butter around noon and that's it for the day. As you can imagine, I feel absolutely horrible.

Any ideas? No meat. Nothing with high fructose corn syrup or other artificial sweeteners. No pineapple, kiwi, or papaya.

As a positive, we have been much more active lately! The weather is finally nice, and both of us want to be outside desperately. It's awesome! We found this dude in our adventures yesterday:



Ringneck! As you can see, he pooped on Rick, lol

Forgot to mention, I can't eat grains frequently or I get ill. No rice at all, whole grain pasta once every other week or so is okay. Help?

Are you looking for proteins? Or what type of food are you looking for?

Do you eat fish?

I use a lot of canned tuna as a protein supplement because it's cheap and easy. There are a lot that's about 1.50-2 per can, 30 grams of lean protein.

What about coconut, almond or quinoa flour so you can make some home made bread type products?

No fish. Fish is still meat.

Just general ideas. I'm very much in a food rut.

Beans are great and you can incorporate them in almost any meal.

A big pot of white beans (navy or great northern) or red beans (kidney).

Do you eat seafood, such as shrimp?

Soups: veggie, French onion
