WTF is a lentil? It tastes beany, and a whole bag of them cost under 2 bucks. This not eating bad carbs thing, is really tricky. everything i had instinct to buy at the store, carbs. Produce? Expensive. What else is there? Beans? Legumes? Have you read the labels on those cans?
So, I went old school. I bought bags of various dry beans and lentils. Au natural. I'm going to make my own hummus with some chick peas too in my food processor after I soak them to life.(thanks to the ex asshole manfriend leaving this at my house in his hurry to abandon ship).
Im also finding a new appreciation for saurkraut. You can eat a buttload of that for 15 calories. I cook it in a pan with some sliced turkey and add a peice of provolone and its like a better version of a reuben.
Maybe I really wont miss carbs.
You know what misses them most? My pocketbook. I use to be able to eat for $10 a week at the discount grocery. My last bill for food was $85 bucks. Uh. This fat better get to melting off me real quick!
* Today after eating my breakfast sandwhich prepared with love by me, I thought twice before throwing out the tin foil. I considered re-using it. I'm not sure if this should be filed under becoming my mother or not, but I really didn't like that the thought crossed my mind.
