melissel Posted August 3, 2012 Share Posted August 3, 2012 I'm trying to reduce the amount of meat we're eating as well as our overall grocery bill, but restrictions are making it kind of hard. We all feel our best when we're relatively few carbs (plus DH and I are trying to lose weight and do really well on low-carb). I can't eat gluten, and substitutes are expensive, so I try to avoid them. I can't seem to get used to eating legumes. I can eat a small amount of beans or lentils in one meal one on day, but if I try to eat the same small amount in the next day or so, my stomach is so upset that I actually have pain. I feel like most of the low carb meals I see either involve meat heavily or involve lots of beans and legumes. I'm not seeing a way around lots of meat and a high grocery bill here, but I wanted to ask all you creative thinkers if I 'm missing anything. Given these food restrictions, WWYD? Am I not seeing a solution that's right there, or is there really none? TIA! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
