what do you do when funds and food are low?

This is just going to be one of those weeks when I can't buy the normal healthy foods I try to keep in the house. I haven't had a lot of that since I've diagnosed. We are running out of money before running out of pay period. My new granddaughter is coming home from the hospital, and Tricia and the grandsons need to eat too. How do you eat right when the pickens are slim?

Hang tight, Donna! Another reader asked that same question on "Ask our CDE." Camille answered it and will post it soon! (tonight, I believe!)

I depend on food stamps which usually run out before the end of the month. I also get food from a food pantry once a month. I try to get canned beans when I am there. I make pasta and beans or a vegetarian chili. It's not the best but it is cheap and filling.

Make something with eggs, frittata is good, adding whatever you may have in the fridge, vegetables, cheese, bacon or ham, and if you have a really hungry family add some cooked pasta. With a cheesy topping it really looks appetising. :)
