In review:

1 Bananas

Don't like them? Freeze them or mash them!

2 Frozen Berries

Use on top of oatmeal!

3 Veggies

Sweet peas, on salads or rice.

4 Broccoli

The more you eat vegetables, the more you are going to like them!

4 Fat Sources

Walnuts, avocados, and hummus to keep you satiated.

5 Beans

The more the fiber the better.

6 Brown Rice

However, don't believe the myth not to eat white rice. If you like white, have white.

7 Oatmeal

Have for breakfast and/or lunch! Use your walnuts, chia seeds or peas, etc.

Just remember, do not force yourself to consume what you hate. The above list of pantry staples may seem small and limited, but all you have to do is google On the supercook website, all you have to do is type in what ingredients you have on hand and coordinating recipes are found using your ingredients! Cool, huh?

Also, most of her favorite foods may be found very inexpensively! Yes, healthy food we can afford!

The above foods were solely the advice of Tami Torossian.

Good luck!
