I did not make it as a vegetarian. I love to eat chicken and fish. I had a pot roast this past weekend and feel like I gained 5 lbs. I hadn't eaten any beef at all for a long time.....It has been months. Anyways, I think it is for someone with a lot more income than I have. Protein is a very important source for a lot of reasons. I very much missed the protein.

I read on the Internet that Bill Clinton is a vegan. He had heart problems and used to eat at Mickey Dee's. No more.... good for him.

High protein can also be found in health drinks such as Boost and Ensure. Since I'm supposed to have a lot of high protein, my daughter sent me a variety of drinks she got from the salesman at her clinic. I can't drink the stuff, but possibly you could. A good site to get recipes is Macmillan. Org uk (?) google it. But, as you say, it isn't cheap to eat healthy. My grandsons wife brought over several meals, and I could only eat so much quinoa rice, broccoli, shrimp and chicken. Some of the recipes on the Macmillan site sounded a lot more interesting, and I may try one or two,, but thought you might appreciate a little help in case you wanted to incorporate some healthy meals along with your normal eating habits. My daughter drinks a bottle of one of these healthy drinks each morning, has a cup of soup at lunch and a healthy meal each night. Just a little tweaking and you could change your meal plan too. IF you still desire healthy eating on the cheap.

I do not understand why quinoa is so healthy. It is expensive so why it is so good for you? I like couscous.... is it similar to quinoa?

McBarb, you're asking the wrong person as I have no idea. All I do know is eating this healthy stuff is like eating sand, weeds, and grass to me. Good smelling, great smell, but I can get past the other My son from up north really likes the stuff, so I. Cut and freeze the dinners for him when he comes..lol

Quinoa is high in protein and fiber. And if you substitute a portion of the flour when baking, it gives a nice texture to muffins, breads, and cakes without much change to the taste. I also like it mixed into oatmeal. Or it can be mixed with flour or cornmeal to coat foods for frying.

Can I bake a canned pumpkin pie in a graham cracker crust? I am just too lazy to make a pie crust.
edited to say yes I can!! I did a search. It looks good too. It is my birthday Friday and I am going to make a pumpkin pie in graham cracker crust along with an apple pie.

Really? That would be a different kind of pie for sure. What do they suggest protecting the crust from burning at the high temperature( 425 degrees, isn't it) that is required to start off the baking? Also, making homemade bread isn't easy when we get older as I found out. Throwing it together wasn't the problem, but when I got done to having to knead the bread for the time it needed, I ran out of steam and felt like my arms were going to fall off! That is of course,unless you're going to try making those all grain type breads, which I know absolutely nothing about, other than they are high protein, turn out too heavy, and dry, which I don't care for personally. My taste runs along the soft and light breads which I try to locate in the healthy choice area in the bread aisle that I found online to choose from to buy.
