RE: Just signed up & have question
Posted Monday, September 6, 2010 at 8:37 AM
Just signed up late last night & so haven't got all the stuff in my pantry/fridge for the week 1 recipes & have already spent grocery budget for the week. Are there substitutes for the recipes?
Hey kickstart! (what an adorable handle! )
Keep it simple! Have you whole grains, vegetables, and fruit? Then you have all you need for today - BUT I'm guessing it may be slim pickin's and you definitely want to have lots of good food around - because what you have is what you'll eat, right?
Oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. If you have almond or rice milk, you can splash that on, but not necessary. Sprinkle some cinnamon, even a tsp. of sugar won't hurt!
Rice cooker? Fire it up. For another meal, pile half your plate with rice, the other half with veggies, eat your fill.
Raw veggies around? Slice 'em and munch on 'em! Potatoes? Cook up a pot or an ovenful.
See where I'm going with this?
And can you get to market today?
