these recipes aren't that healthy or realistic. Try salads in hot weather with quality greens and add beans, egg or nuts and lots of veggies, but go easy on cold cuts or cheese and make sure the dressing isn't full of fat. When the weather turns cold soups and stews are my best friend and right now I am on a limited budget. Shop the circulars and adapt your recipes to what you can get on sale. I always do better when I know I have food on hand at home and have it planned.

stop buying junk food!! it was cheaper for me to buy healthy food then it would have been to buy regular food. usually I go to the store and spend about 200 every two weeks. I went to the store today and bought the same stuff, but the healthy version, no junk food, and spent 110 dollars.

I absolutely agree with number 1 made on 10/01/2012. It is quite expensive to eat right, even though I COULD make some small changes to improve things. And example would be that I don't eat enough fruit. I am crazy about veggies, but fruit is the harest things for me to get into. Banaanas go bad before I have a chance to eat them. I just don't know how to go about making this change on a limited income.

The burgers sound delicious. I love nuts, berries, mushrooms etc. But with a $725/mo. income, I don't buy produce unless it is somewhat less than $1 per pound and try to keep meat, fish around $2/lb. I don't try to have meat or fish every day. I love fish and seafood. But about the only thing I buy is pollak when it is under $2. So my frustration with health food recipes and magazines is that they really don't address low incomes.

This recipe was colorful and I had high expectations for it but it just didn't hit the mark. To much vinegar and just not enough flavor. Won't make it again.

You can't spot reduce belly fat. Why are you saying this?
