I am beyond tired, and very short on money because of medical bills. (We have insurance, but they don't start to cover everything.)
My health is failing, and my weight is climbing, and I need to stay alive or neither of us will.
I have been a fan of McDougal in the past, but never been serious about it. My question is...what is the very cheapest, easiest way I can do this? I can't go to the store regulary to buy fresh food, though I do have a freezer. Lately I buy a loaf of day old healthy bread and some sale carrots or spinach (lots of vitamins for the money?) and eat little else. Sometimes I will make yogurt, from mostly powdered milk. (Buying prepared yogurt is too expensive.) I am losing weight and feeling a little better.
Is this reasonably healthy? What would I need to add to keep from getting sick, that does not cost too much or require frequent trips tot the store? The bread I eat is whole grain and has some seeds in it so is pretty healthy, I think. My husband does not eat by mouth, so I am only feeding myself and have no interest in the food being tasty. Just really, really easy, and cheap, and sustaining.
Any advice? Thanks so much...
