That's awesome about the cool starches. I've seen some and will get them. I did, however, buy 50 pounds of red potatoes (or is that 25 pounds
) at about .55 cents a pound so I will get an asian sweet potato as soon as I can. Do you have any asian stores close by? If you can afford the organic-kudos. I know that asian stores sell vegetables cheaper though.
Soy lattes from Starbucks
Recreational sugar (candy -- I don't eat baked goods because they are like crack to me)
Nuts and dried fruit as snacks (would still want to be able to use in small amounts in recipes)
The occasional teaspoon of oil in an entree
Eating out, except for sushi
I find if I can limit those things to once a week, then skip to every other week, now and then, things are better for me. I used to be better and limit it to once a month. Somehow I want to rationalize that winter makes it harder. I also think my back going out has made it too easy to focus on eating when I should be finding some time to stretch. However it slowed me down and then I become anxious and want to cook more, then I eat more. Finding balance is so challenging! Yet..I try to never eat or add 1)dairy or 2)oil (that oil that sent me to the hospital has a lasting affect!)
Today will be in the 60's?
I want to get back to mostly salads so I can be ready to enjoy the Spring. Soups and salads!
