It just dawned on me that sodium and salt aren't the same thing but I'm wondering if foods that are high in sodium taste salty?
Seems that would be a good indicator of getting too much salt.4 people following

-Avocado/yoghurt dip with cumin, dip in veggies. - pour low sugar yogurt in a bowl (I like boston cream pie) and freeze. Tastes like gelato. - SOUP it will fill you up. - gazpacho with tomato, basil, onion, cucumber, mango, lemon juice. - Whole pickle. This cures my desire to nosh.
Kroger sells a carb master yogurt too that is really yummy.

Eat 6 small low-carb/low-sodium meals a day. I think it seems weird that you lose weight by eating more, but you do! My mom does this and never feels deprived. She always carries a snack with her and drinks a lot of water.
Someone asked how much you *SPEND* on groceries, which was interesting. I'd also be interested in knowing ways that others have found to save.

Grow your own food. Make more stuff from scratch. I heard to avoid the center of the store ...which is where all of the expensive processed foods lurk...and look down...they put the highest priced items at eye level and lower down are the cheapest alternatives.
I have a family of 4. We live in Santa Fe and decent prices ourt here. Just trying to get idea if Im average. Heard cost of groceries are going up.11 people following

That sounds sooooooo great. Easy too. Thanks! We make mini pizzas on english muffins. I use the wheat ones. Tomato paste, cheese, pereroni, spinach, stick it in the toaster oven.
We are trying to save money and bread can be expensive! How much cheaper is making it at home & what are some good recipes?6 people following
I'd don't know if you save money but it sure is tasty and satisfying to make your own bread. I use a baking stone - though they are expensive $50 they are worth it.

How do you deal with suger in the ingredients? I'm GF and I have to constantly read the labels to find out if it contains gluten, same with diabetics?

Here's how I do it right now: when I return to make a new meal plan, it asks me to pick meats I want that are on sale. I do this, but I also pick meats that I have frozen (I have lots of frozen meat from costco). So I use those recipes, just remove the meat (and anything else) I already have from the grocery list.
If I could tell it I have other things besides meats (carrots, produce, etc) then it'd be more useful
Is it deserts, sides, main meals, breaskfast, lunch, snacks?17 people following
I haven't found many places for recipes. My biggest problem is variety: my partner isn't GF and he tolerates the meals I make. Sometimes I'll make both GF and non-GF, but the effort to keep them separate is too much.
I'd be happy to start with a few dinner recipes and sides. The same few meals every week are so boring.
I also want to know, what ingredients are people using and what do they do about prepared sauces and marinades?
