My 2 kids and husband are extremely picky wont hardly eat any veggies at all, mainly just canned gb, corn, etc...and since ive been trying to be very frugal ive been making alot of $5 meals....mac & cheese, Hamburger helper, etc...
Any help is MUCH MUCH MUCH appreciated!!!!!
I've done WW's in the past, but without the meetings. I'm no good. I have found that counting calories using livestrong.com works great for me, they even tell you how many calories you can have with their calculator. Anyway back to the subject. I too am dealing with a tight spending budget. I alter my meals from my families. Like when I make hamburger helper, I take out some of the meat for me before I add the other stuff and make my own meal. If they are having something I can't alter I'll have a turkey sandwich or something instead. I've even been known to have cereal for dinner. Refried beans are cheap and I can even add a little low fat cheese,put it on a low carb tortilla, pop in the microwave and have a nice dinner or lunch. Tuna is also reasonable. Hungry Girl has some great recipes in her book, which I got from the library. I snack on sugar free jello, low fat string cheese. popcorn, yogurt.
