    I'm with you there, It's just me and my partner, he eats meat and 2 veg, chips etc... me I just resort to sandwiches and the occasional piece of chicken with a baked potato. toast for breackfast.. as he is now made redundant and I am retired, we just can't afford fresh veg every day. or anything else for that matter. just a general moan here, but true nontheless.

    Bf is half an avocado with celery and a thin slice of deli turkey

    Lunch is avocado , some protein and chopped celery, scallions and some protein. Tossed in a bowl.. sometimes salad and topped with protein olive oil and avocado.

    Dinner is avocado ( lol ) protein lettuce and steamed above ground veggies. Drizzled with olive oil.

    Snacks are nuts or pumpkin seeds. Sometimes dark choco dipped in nut better. Olives.

    Never ever root veggies , grains, pasta, rice etc. rockets bs and massive weight gain.

    Bernstein talks about lower carb, lower insulin, lower chances or error. Works for me !!!
