My doctor keeps harping on me to see the nutrionist, but I say if you can show me how to eat for my diabetes on $200 a month, I'm in. I would love to be able to just go and buy all the produce and protein I want, but I can't always afford it, I have a 15 year old son with a bottomless pit as a stomack, I also have to feed him and as he is not a diabetic there are some things that I eat that you does not want to (wheat pasta, wheat bread, etc..) Meat alone is expensive and while I am not a big fan of red meat, I still eat chicken. I am not a fan of processed foods either, but I can not always afford the things my body needs. I work and live pay check to paycheck like everyone else and I am a single parent with no support. I only get food stamps and medical, which I am grateful for, because alot of other people have tighter budgets than mine, how are the elderly on a fixed income supposed to eat for their dietary needs? It's very frustrating for me, and then I end up eating the same things all the time when my body is screaming for a cupcake!
