  1. It is tough sometimes to balance the two. I am always so tempted to go to Whole Foods but I know I would end up spending so much money! Now I buy lower priced healthy foods such as oatmeal, veggies, and raw chicken and fish and make all types of meals. If I am out to dinner, I try to decide if the portion is big enough to split it. It can save a lot of money and calories in the end.

    great post, sabrina. I guess one of the top ways that we manage the food vs. calorie budget is by eating in more . we eat out rarely, when we DO eat out we eat food we LOVE ,even if it is expensive, and the rest of the time we cook at home with quality ingredients that are still far less than eating out. especially with vegan food in syracuse, new york, you can make better food at home than you can get in a restaurant.

    i should take a cue from you on the paintswatch test. i just feed the bad stuff to my husband, who is like an amiable little goat who will eat anything and be delighted about it (“but you made these horrible beans for ME!”). it’s kind of adorable actually.

  3. love the post.
    especially your point about not being embarrassed to ask for what you want when youre out! that it’s your body afterall.

    so obvious and yet so difficult to do as well.

  4. Love your ways of dealing with the problem! Am with you on trying small amounts at a time. I also ask around to see if other people would be interested in trying the dish before I make it; that way if I don’t like it I can pawn it off on someone else hehe.

  5. Great post! It is all about balance – I’m in the two bite club. That means, if after two bites I decided I really can’t stand what I’m eating I’ll either try to turn it into something else or I’ll just get something new.

    By the way, glad you like the Barney butter :)

    wonderful post topic! For some reason fruits and veggies seem to come to our apartment to die, they are rotten so quickly that it’s been difficult to plan/buy ahead this year.

  9. Excellent tips!!

    Just posted this on your previous post, but in case you don’t see it, here it is again:

    **Just as a heads up: I will not be able to comment on blogs as often now, during this semester, due to work overload (I’m stressed already) – PLEASE know that I’m still loyally reading, but just won’t have time to comment. I hope you understand!!

  10. I’m big on frozen veggies. :) Oh, and I cook beans in the crockpot and then store then in the fridge for healthy meals all week long!

  11. Interesting points. I guess I never really thought about it, but I hate wasting food and therefore, will eat things even if I don’t love them so they are not wasted. I will have to think of your tips next time I do this!

  12. I think this is a great post on a topic many people struggle with. I would like to speak about this on my blog too , if you don’t mind. I’ll cite my source!! please let me know!

  13. good post. i need to get better at making sur ei get what i want when i’m out. when it comes to me wasting food, i’ll do it if i absolutely hate it, but if it’s just a matter of “i wouldn’t make it again” i eat it.

  14. You’re a real deep thknier. Thanks for sharing.
