I don't know how to price yesterday's food. Breakfast, lunch and supper were ok, but then I made the fillings for two bacon/swiss/onion quiche and two hamburger/cheddar/bacon/mushroom/onion/spi
nach quiche, and ate some of it as I went. I'll have the same problem today, when I grated the cheese for all four quiche and ate some of it as I went. And then I'm taking the four quiche to church. I'll eat some of it, and maybe something someone else takes, depending on what it is. So these two days will be sort of discombobulated.

By the way, I leave on Wednesday for a week in Idaho. I leave about 5 am and return the following Wednesday about midnight. I'll take almonds, cheese and Slim Jims to eat along the way. There used to be a Quizdo (sp?) right by the terminal I fly out of in Salt Lake City, and I could get a double meat and cheese sandwich on lettuce instead of bread. Yum! But then they "improved" the offerings at the airport so it's no longer there. Eating on plan at Mom's house isn't a problem. I've been so stubborn about eating low carb for so long that I'm too embarrassed to not eat properly in front of my family! Poor Mama. She has always said that you had to eat what was put in front of you, but I don't do that. And then since she let me eat "my" way she had to let my neice eat "her" way, which is vegetarian. Libby has been vegetarian for three or four years now, since she was about 6 or 7. I think for sort of the same reason I still eat low carb in front of Mom - she's made such a fuss about not eating anything with meat or animal products (eggs and cheese are ok) that she's too stubborn now to change, at least in front of her family.


Paleo on a Budget

This is a Paleo blog with some recipes that sound pretty good. Paleo isn't necessarily low carb, but there's a lot of overlap.

The month didn't get off to a great start. I ate a lot more than I should have or needed to or really even wanted to. Breakfast was fine, but I made enough soup for two servings, ate one serving and was satisfied, and then took a bite of the soup as I was putting it away and it was so good that I ate the rest of it, too. The first extra bite was really good, but by the end it was just ok. I should have quit after - no, make it before! - that first extra bite. Then I cooked a whole delicata squash for supper, only meaning to eat half of it, and ate the whole thing. And I roasted the seeds from that and a pumpkin that was on it's last legs and I ate all of those seeds. Way too much food! One thing the Food Stamp Challenge did for me was to keep me from overeating. Portion control is important when you're trying to control costs. Not that I ever went hungry. I ate enough and then some, but I was always concious of the cost of what I ate and ate plenty but not an unlimited amount. I was aware of the cost of what I ate yesterday, too, but went ahead and ate it anyway.

So here's the damages, which really aren't nearly as bad as I thought they'd be:

Breakfast - MIM with coconut butter; tea with gelatin and cream
Lunch - soup - broth, riced cauliflower, carrot, onion, ham, cream
Supper - tongue, Cinnamon Roasted Delicata
Evening tea - herbal tea with gelatin and cream
Snack - lots of pumpkin and delicata seeds

Cost of food I ate - $5.49

Breakfast - eggs scrambled in suet; tea with cream and splenda
Lunch - salad - tuna, egg, romaine, mayo, herb vinaigrette
Supper - soup - turkey broth, Turkey/Broccoli/Spaghetti Squash Alfredo casserole, extra Alfredo sauce
Evening tea - tea with gelatin and cream

Total cost of food eaten today - $3.28

I'm trying to wean myself off of sweetener in my tea so I'm back to using cream, instead. Then I'll probably try to wean myself off of it, too. Maybe

    I like my hot tea to be quite sweet, but my iced tea just a touch at most. Don't know why, but hot has a more bitter tang.
