    • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes [or grape tomatoes], halved

$50 worth of beans!

I can never find instant beans locally, so always end up having to get them on Amazon. Don't tell anyone, but in moments of extreme weakness, I've even eaten them when I'm not camping.

u/stikeymo · 17 pointsr/unitedkingdom

Send some of it my way please. We've had 0.18cm of rain since the 1st of May, and 4.8cm of rain all sodding year. Before you go "oh, you're in California, shut up whinging with your constant sunshine", the only weather I see is fog, fog and more fog. The only variation is humid and grey or alternatively windy and cold and grey.

And they don't have the NHS. Or decent chocolate. And look at the price of a 12 pack of beans. Plus the colonials take facetiousness and sarcasm literally.

Sorry about all that, the sight of rain and suburban Britain has made me suddenly very homesick. I'm in dire need of a sit down with a cup of tea and a good old complain about things!

For people who want low carb noodles without having to make your own -

u/redraga · 15 pointsr/vegetarianketo

Hey a fellow vegetarian Indian! I've been on this diet for over 8 months now and it's definitely possible, although not eating eggs will make it a tad harder. Below are some things (sans eggs) that I eat regularly. Note that this is a little heavy on carbs for a strict keto diet since will end up eating between 30-40g of carbs per day. The daily limit to keep you in ketosis varies from person to person. This worked for me. I don't calorie count since it's too much of a hassle for me. So you might want to tailor this plan based on your needs. I've changed parts of this diet since I started working at a new place where I can get cafeteria food.

Breakfast: Bullet proof coffee. It's simple, fast, keeps you satiated and is heavy on fat. After having this, the rest of your meals only need to be low carb, with good amounts of protien and fat.

Other meal ideas:

  • Low carb tortillas are your friend! I used to eat [Josep's low carb tortillas] ( These tortillas tasted very similar to wheat rotis. Yes, they are 5g net carb per tortilla, and I used to have 4 daily (2 lunch, 2 dinner). As I said, this plan is a little high on carbs.

  • What's roti without a good serving of butter on it, eh? Smother your roti until it drips with butter!

  • Now that you have your roti, we can make some sabjis to go with it! Vegetables you can use are spinach, mushrooms, cauliflower, cabbage, eggplant, cucumbers, bell peppers (capsicum), turnips (strict ketoers might disagree) and okra (lady's finger). Throw in an occasional tomato and onion. Now you have an entire array of subji ideas open to you. Palak paneer, gobi masala, baigan ka bartha, cabbage kuruma ... well you get the idea. You can add cream cheese to your gravy curries to make it thicker and add more fat. I used shredded coconut in the kuruma in order to add more fat. Paneer is also a great addition, although I rarely had it. Check the nutrition info for all ingredients and use your best judgement.

  • But you can't have roti without some good dal, can you? [Black soy beans] ( to the rescue! Unlike other beans and lentils, Black soy beans are low on carb and high on protein. Hello Roti and Rajma! Cheese on Rajma is also great!

  • You can also explore vegan meat options such as veggie sausages and patties. Steam a bag of frozen brocolli/cauliflower, top it with cheese and add a vegan sausage for a quick, lazy meal! Froze vegetables plus eggs gives you even more options (should you consider eating eggs).

    Hope this plan gives you a starting point. Believe me when I say this diet works! You feel much better after cutting out the carbs, especially after being on a carb heavy diet such as a vegetarian Indian diet. Good luck!

I really wanted a full English, so I bought them off Amazon only $2.50 a can.

Not a bad price for something you can't usually find here.

And our Fred Meyers had the English style bacon in the deli.

Only thing I can find for a reasonable price is the black pudding

u/PrincessBabyMuffin · 13 pointsr/ketorecipes

I made keto Louisiana "red beans" and "rice" with sausage! Sorry for the low picture quality. The recipe is a bit involved, but I like my keto meals with some complexity.

-1/2 onion, diced

-1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced

-1 jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded, & minced (optional)

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-1lb cooked smoked sausage links, sliced (I found a brand that has 1 carb per link. You could also use shrimp and/or chicken)

-1 cup chicken broth (or water + bouillon)

-15oz can black soy beans, drained and rinsed (I used these )

-1 bay leaf

-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

-1/2 tsp dried thyme

-1/4 tsp dried sage

-2 tsp dried parsley

-1 tsp Cajun or Creole seasoning (like Tony C's)

-Salt & pepper to taste

-24oz riced cauliflower (I used 2x 12oz bags of the frozen Trader Joe's brand)

-Avocado oil, butter, or lard for sautéing

-Xanthan gum (optional)

  1. Spread cauliflower rice out on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and put in the oven @ 300 degrees to dry out while prepping other ingredients, up to 30 minutes. If using frozen, it does not need to be thawed first
  2. Sauté onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño in oil over medium heat in a 2qt pot until softened, then stir in minced garlic
  3. Add sliced sausage and sauté until heated through (make sure it's the pre-cooked kind)
  4. Add broth, beans, and spices. Stir to combine
  5. Simmer over medium-low heat for 20-30mins or until liquid is reduced. You can sprinkle a pinch of xanthan gum in if you want the liquids thicker
  6. When the mixture is almost done simmering, heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower rice and stir/sauté continuously for around 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste
  7. Put cauliflower rice in a bowl, pour sausage/beans mixture on top (remove bay leaf first) and enjoy!

    Yield: 4 servings @ 8g net carbs each (would only be 6g net carbs if you use a zero-carb meat/protein. You could cut another 1-2 carbs per serving if you leave out the onions & peppers, but it would definitely change the overall taste.)
u/sgtfoleyistheman · 13 pointsr/ketorage

These have 1g of net carbs per serving, with 3.5 servings per can.

Holy shit! According to this, black bean noodles have 25g of protein and 12g of fiber per serving.

I guess I'll be trying these in the near future.

u/Stinky_McDoodooface · 9 pointsr/vegan

Whole foods - beans/lentils (black beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans/chickpeas), nuts/seeds (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, hemp/flax/chia/sunflower seeds), grains (buckwheat/wheat/quinoa/oats), and green vegetables.

Processed foods - tofu, tempeh, seitan, bean pastas, protein powders

here's an infographic

u/barking-chicken · 8 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

As a keto dieter, maybe I can help out. None of it is really "convenient" food, you have to make pretty much all of it, but it help to kick the cravings.

  1. pasta - Black Bean Spaghetti or Egg-based fettucine.

  2. garlic bread - Low Carb Cauliflower breadsticks

  3. pie - Low Carb lemon Meringue Pie

  4. muffins - Customizable Keto Muffins

  5. crab cakes - Low Carb Crab Cakes

  6. mashed potatoes - Cheesy Cauliflower Mash

  7. chocolate cakes - Chocolate Sheet Cake

    Let me know what else you're missing and I can see if I can find it. I've been low carb/keto for 3 years now, so I've tried a lot of the premade mixes you can find out there too.
u/nice_t_shirt · 8 pointsr/vegan

Hey, I train 6-7 days a week, too. You should have no problem getting 60-70g protein a day just from whole foods, not even taking into account a protein shake. Though that also depends on your overall calorie intake, which you didn't mention. Just putting something simple together, 95g hemp seeds, 430g lentils, and 290g buckwheat is 2000 calories, 330g carbs, 43g fat, and 96g protein. There is plenty of room to play around there to swap out foods and stuff and still hit your protein macros.

  1. Vegan totally tastes like ass. Funny enough, mixed berry is the only flavor I think is half decent. Taste-wise, my favorite is Sunwarrior. If you can afford Vega, you should be able to afford Sunwarrior. I like the chocolate flavor. Though my favorite is TrueNutrition's hemp/rice/pea blend. Tastes better than Vega, not as good as Sunwarrior, but it's much cheaper than either and tastes good enough for me. Favorite flavors are chocolate fudge brownie and mocha.

  2. Sorry no recipe suggestions, I don't eat soy/tofu, but I eat a lot of beans and I just eat them with some spices or something, nothing fancy. Check out explore asia products - they're based on beans and have a lot of protein. Also lentil pastas are pretty good.

  3. Nuts, seeds, beans/lentils - or processed foods based on these like tofu, seitan, tempeh, TVP, peanut butter, etc.

  4. "Keep in mind I'm a broke uni student." You probably shouldn't buy Vega then :) Sounds like you have the bases covered. On top of oats, I might also add buckwheat, quinoa, and rice. Peanut butter is also cheap, very calorically dense, and has a good amount of protein.

  5. I'm not iron deficient, but just check out high iron foods. Molasses is one I use as a sweetener for shakes and stuff and it has a lot of iron. Also I've heard good things about the iron fish.
u/MindlessSir · 7 pointsr/CampingandHiking

No ice or fridge required.






Ground Beef




Whole milk

Eggs require you knowing someone who raises chickens. Store bought eggs can't be left at room temp, but unwashed fresh eggs last weeks at room temp. Usually cost $3 a dozen. I live in a major city and can find them.

Sharp cheeses don't require to be kept cold.

Vegetables obviously are perfectly fine at ambient temp.

I get the weirdest looks when all my campmates are eating lousy hot dogs and I'm having taco night with mexican rice and refried beans for dinner. Pancakes and bacon is my go-to breakfast as it's good and filling for a long day of adventures. All you need is "just add water" pancake mix.

I'm going camping this weekend I actually need to start meal planning.

u/kita8 · 6 pointsr/keto

My local low carb grocer’s website has canned black soy beans that people who review it say make a great substitute for regular beans in chilli. They’ve been out of stock when I’ve been there (it’s a bit out of my way), but I plan to grab a couple and see how they go for Mexican dishes and chilli. - nutrition and ingredients easy to find here.

Eden Soybeans Black 15.0 OZ(pack of 3) - easy enough to order off Amazon in America.

u/killroy108 · 6 pointsr/PacificCrestTrail

Breakfast: instant coffee and poptarts, once I read the calorie count (200 kcal per pastry, so 400 kcal per pack) I knew that they were the breakfast for me and that we shouldn't be feeding these to kids.

Lunch - meat sticks and cheese, various variations sometimes a roll of summer sausage, blocks of cheese, I quit trying to eat tortillas due to my moustache not cooperating.

Dinner - Instant refried beans and minute rice, I seriously ate this almost every night. The beans come in a foil pouch so I would pour half into a ziplock for another night, boil the water with the rice in it, pour/spoon it into the pouch. Same the pouch for the next night, and these pouches are good for packing out used TP. For variety add taco bell sauce packets, bits of cheese, individual spam packets. Minute rice can be found anywhere. These are my favorite beans, but the price looks like it is going up, they can also be found at Safeway. A couple of stores had another brand of instant refried beans that worked OK too.

Snacks - I would pack pouches of dill pickle sunflower seeds, both for the salt and to break up monotony. I ate alot of granola bars, usually when taking a break and felt like I was running out of steam. I found the cheaper granola bars were my favorite, but when I found cliff bars for $1/bar I would usually buy them even though I was getting tired of them (did you know some of them have caffeine in them!).

Edit: Yellowfin tuna in oil pouches rule! Either I would make extra rice at night to eat for lunch the next day with the tuna or mix it in with the beans and rice. Good fat/calories and the oil doesn't freeze when you are in the mountains like the tuna in water does.

Thank you! Another option: If you go to, you can set up an Amazon alert to email you know when this one...

Goes on sale (though right now it's $2.50/can on Prime, which is good). Last October, they messed something up and it went to $2.79 for 12 cans by mistake. Got 2 cases for around $6 shipped.

I love camelcamelcamel. :)

u/buriedinthyeyes · 5 pointsr/xxfitness
  1. legume soups (green split pea is my current fave).
  2. [this FUCKING AMAZING pasta.] (
  3. throw seasoning on your greek yogurt (garlic and onion, for instance) for some awesome "veggie dip" or "chunky salad dressing"
  4. quest bars (19-20 grams of protein a pop).
  5. learn to make quiches for non-breakfast egg dishes. bonus points if you can make ramen/noodle soup with boiled egg using the pasta linked to above. (working on it, haven't figured it out).
  6. especially in the summer, learn to make a good ceviche. usually chopping up tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro and throwing in a splash of lime will do it, but you can throw in some jalapeño or chipotle to give it a kick too.
  7. lox. great breakfast/lunch/snack ingredient. cut up some apple/pear melon, add a little olive oil, pepper and capers and voilá.
u/overthedwaynebowe · 5 pointsr/MealPrepSunday
  1. I do 4 10 hour days (M-Th) at work so I meal prep for those days because a 4/10 work schedule sounds great but M-Th I have no motivation to cook or exist after being at work 10+ hours.

  2. My SO recently introduced me to that black bean pasta. It is by the brand Explore Asia. There is the black bean spaghetti, edamame fetuchini, and adzuki bean spaghetti. The macros on them are INSANE! I have only tasted the edamame fettuccine so far and admittedly it isn't quite as satisfying as regular pasta but it tastes good enough and with that nutrition it is very worth it. I found it at my local Sprouts grocery store in Texas but my SO gets it at various grocery stores in Southern California so I'd imagine it's all over the place and not too hard to find!
u/AnonyJustAName · 4 pointsr/keto

Percentages are more useful for people on medical keto, say epileptics. Here, it is more typical to track in grams.

People on here tend to have the most success keeping to 20 g net carbs per day which is carbs minus fiber (in US). Outside US the label typically already reflects the math, is my understanding.

So, you can eat anything that fits into your macros. The calculator in the sidebar is a good one, set carbs to 20 g and activity to sedentary, most folks do a 20% deficit.

If you want to eat pinto beans, the rest of your day has to be pretty carb free. Black coffee and a steak for your other meal would fit nicely. ;)

As an alternative, Black Soybeans (have only seen them canned) are very low in net carbs and are great in burritos, tacos, etc.

u/YouSmellOfButterfly · 4 pointsr/1200isplenty

I buy these bean-only noodles:

Not necessarily low calorie, but very high fiber and protein. They taste good, better than any other pasta replacement in my opinion.

u/latigidigital · 4 pointsr/texas

Protip: you can make keto Tex-Mex.

Puffy tortillas

Tortilla chips




Crispy taco shells



At 20 carbs or less a day, I’m down 74 lbs since the end of spring, and I don’t even exercise or really even try to run a calorie deficit. You can literally just get trays of Whataburger patties with cheese, fried eggs, and all that jazz.

Check out /r/ketorecipes and /r/keto for extra. There’s a recipe for just about every form of Mexican food. (Bonus tip: baby corn has no carbs, and fiber doesn’t count, so you can get the HEB low-carb tortillas if you’re feeling lazy.)

Edit: ps - black soybeans have 1 net carb and can be mashed and refried like pintos. Watch out for added carbs in shredded cheese and bacon, but both are A-OK otherwise.

u/IndiaMars · 4 pointsr/keto

If you want legumes with almost no carbs, try these.

u/littlewonder · 4 pointsr/keto

I know, right? The only way I found out about them was through a recipe book. They are so amazing and I really missed beans. They sell them at places like Whole Foods, but I get mine online from Amazon for cheaper.

u/LambastingFrog · 4 pointsr/funny

As an Englishman living in America - FUCK NO, they're not. They're much less sweet than beans served here, more of a soft texture, with a tomato sauce. There's QFC's here in Seattle that sell them, and apparently, they're also on Amazon, if you want to try them.

Many people add a splash of Worcestershire sauce before heating them. You only need to warm them through, they're already pre-cooked.

Bonus recipe - beans on toast. A full can of beans needs about 3 pieces of toast, but 4 is better. And grated cheddar on top is better again.

u/cutecottage · 3 pointsr/grainfree

My new favorite discovery is black bean spaghetti. I saw it at Costco and figured it was worth a shot.

At first, it reminded me of rubber bands. But then I got used to it and realized it's actually pretty good! It's much more filling than regular pasta, and can be used in a lot of different dishes. It's a nice break from spaghetti squash!

u/Common_Scents · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

Pasta with Protein > Carbs.

It's expensive AF on Amazon, but look at your local grocery stores for this. I found it at mine for relatively cheap. More expensive than regular pasta, but worth it for the macros.

u/ShadedSpaces · 3 pointsr/vegetarianketo

Black soy beans can be used in place of black beans anywhere you like. They are the only keto-friendly bean that I know of. (An equivalent amount of black beans would have 24g net carbs.) Put them in some keto-friendly chili with beefy crumble to up the protein, eat them with tofu/eggs in a scramble, make a Mexican-inspired bean dip out of them and eat with veggies or cheese chips... Tons of options for them! :)

I always got this brand, and I found it at health food stores as well as big chain grocery stores that have a decent natural foods selection.

u/Mr_Mooch · 3 pointsr/Fishing

I agree with your sentiments. I've had people turn their nose down at me for rubber legs on my flies. At the time I was fishing 300+ days a year and had explored every remote stream within a days drive.

I detest the elitist pricks as much as I do the belligerent bait-chunkers who leave a half empty can of corn, a tangled mess of mono and the scattered remains of a 12 pack; every time they fish. In the south, the licked clean can of Beanie Wienies was standard fare as well.

I've probably hauled away 1000 times more inches of coiled mono filament than fish...

And for better or worse, I've never eaten a can of Beanie Wienies.

u/Noetherville · 3 pointsr/vegan

Dude, you need seitan in your life (75g protein/100g). Also, if you eat pasta, substitute for bean pasta that has around 20-25g protein/100g, and white rice for quinoa (white rice: ~3g protein/100g; quinoa: 14g/100g)

Add green peas (9g protein/100g, ~81kcal) or edamame (fresh soy beans, ~28g protein/100g, ~127kcal) to every meal. So much gains... :)

I buy them from Amazon, but they aren't prime eligible and you have to buy a whole dozen at once. I did it, though, because I use them in a lot of recipes:

u/fuzzysqurl · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes


  • 1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs. Cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 c. Shredded Cheese (I personally used Cheddar)
  • 1/4 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 qt. Chicken Stock
  • 3 cans Eden Organic Black Soy Beans. Eden Organic is probably the most accessible brand but you can use whatever you find. Note: Black soy beans taste more like traditional black beans rather than yellow soy beans.


    Put olive oil, onion, and chicken into large pan on the stove. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside. Add garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add every other ingredient and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and let cook uncovered for 20 minutes or so.


    You can increase the amount of cheese in the recipe to help thicken the sauce a little. You can also top with more cheese or sour cream after serving.

    I didn't have any jalapeno or other peppers on hand but you can definitely add them in for extra heat. Speaking of heat, this chili does have a bit of a kick to it so if you're sensitive to spice just leave out or reduce the amount of Cayenne Pepper.

    Finally, you could serve with pork rinds or something if you wish to have a crunch.


    Makes about 11 cups of food, which I estimate to be about 6 servings (I took about 1 cup out to eat. Ended up going back for seconds)

u/ludicity · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

Well I'm vegetarian not vegan lol but here's my $0.02:

  1. I can't think of any differences in coaching men vs women honestly. Form is form and either way you just gotta get work in and practice form. The one thing perhaps is that most women will start off with worse upper body strength relative to lower body strength, and people in general can recover quite well from upper body work. So for women especially I think it's important to emphasis upper body hypertrophy.

  2. My personal favorite cue is "coil up like a spring" for the descent of squat and bench and the setup for deadlift. It makes more sense to me than "get tight". On squat and deadlift this means tightening my hamstrings until they're loaded with tension, which is how I get stretch reflex. For bench this feels like "pull the bar apart" and "bring your chest up to meet it", which also feels like tightening up my upper back and loading it with tension before popping the weight back up for the ascent.

  3. I've heard that women handle volume better than men, but I'm terrible with high rep sets and have guy friends who are way better at them. I think that "women handle volume better" is perhaps a good rule of thumb with beginners but, as always, everybody's different.

  4. check out @powerliftingdietitian @lamaliciabkln @awill_lift for just a couple vegan powerlifting women (and myself @alice_lifts if you're open to vegetarians)! Here's an article that Stephanie (@powerliftingdietitian) wrote about vegan powerlifting. As far as diet tips, a plant-based powerlifting diet is possible but does require more planning if you want to make sure you're getting enough protein. Some of my favorite vegan protein sources include tofu, black bean spaghetti, beans/lentils obv, and more veggie meat substitutes than is probably good for me. I've even made gravy from pea protein powder that is heavenly with veggie meatballs in a "swedish meatless balls" concoction. As long as you cook for yourself though it's really not too bad -- the main difficulty is when you eat out. Also, since the only whole food source of creatine is red meat and it is an essential building block for ATP, it's especially important for non-meat-eaters to supplement with creatine. Oh I also used to write a veg protein cookbook blog. Not a lot on there unfortunately (been meaning to add more) BUT you and your gf might like the sloppy joes if you're into some good ol beefy comfort food!

    Hope that helped!

u/mr_bacon_pants · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Beans, hemp seeds, tofu, seitan, nuts/seeds, all have a good amount of protein. explore asia makes some bean noodles that have a really high macro protein count. This protein powder is also good and cheap. /r/veganfitness has some good posts.

u/Refrigerizer · 2 pointsr/keto

Late to the party, but I have this same product. I bought it from Amazon. It's packaged for the US and has US labelling. Mine says that it's 17g Total Carbohydrates 12g Dietary Fibres and 5g sugars.

Also I believe Canada follows the same standard when it comes to labelling total carbs.

u/Time_Bank · 2 pointsr/loseit

I use this calculator from the Mayo Clinic. According to that, if you are completely inactive 1600 calories a day will maintain your current weight. So if you consume, 1100 calories a day you will lose one pound per week (3500 calories per pound). You can eat a bit more and you'll simply lose weight at a slightly slower rate. Just never go above 1600 calories in a day.

Finding foods that taste good is key to success. I make a shake with the extreme milk chocolate flavor of this protein powder and soy milk. It is delicious. It literally tastes like a chocolate milkshake (as the Amazon reviews confirm), but is really good for you. Low calorie and high in protein. Another dish I make are these beans with garlic powder and other spices. Sometimes I add rice, but not too much (because rice are pure carbs). These beans are high in fiber and protein, so they are perfect. And the spices make the whole thing taste really good. The full receipe is here. The whole dish only costs $1.30 a meal and you can literally have all the ingredients shipped to your door from Amazon. Another tip is that if you drink, you can use the website Get Drunk Not Fat to make efficient choices about what you drink. :) Finally, be sure to take a multivitamin to make sure you get all the nutrients you need even though you have a calorie deficit.

Eat smart and the pounds will fly off in no time. I find the Hall of Fame to be really awesome motivation. With each pound you lose it will become easier to stay away from the bad stuff. Then once you are at your goal weight, you can start to eat more calories because then you just need to maintain. You don't have to be perfect, you just need to make smart choices overall. You can do it, I promise. :)

u/Calmiche · 2 pointsr/food

Canned chili and cut up hot dogs. Think beanie weenies.

So much sodium. I only eat it about once every other month, but it's so good, and so bad for you.

u/grckalck · 2 pointsr/diabetes_t2

Like someone else said, you need to test yourself before and after you eat to find out what foods in what amounts cause you to spike your BG level. When I am trying a new food to see if it will be OK for me to eat, I test before, one hour after, two hours after, and four hours after. If any of the readings after eating are 35-40 above the pre meal reading, I don't eat that food anymore. So once you have eliminated the foods you cannot eat, you develop a diet plan, one you can sustain for the rest of your life, around those foods you can eat. Potatoes, pasta, grains, anything made with flour, probably corn, many fruits, and of course anything with sugar is off the menu for you now.

If you have been diagnosed with T2 by a medical doctor, then you should be on Metformin. Its a great drug with decades of patient data to show that it works and has a low risk of causing other health issues. I get it from Walmart for under their $4 prescription plan. Be ready for at least a couple of weeks of tummy rumbling and frequent bathroom visits. I recommend psyllium husk capsules or metamucil to help balance this out. What Metformin does is it counteracts the resistance the cells in your body have built up to insulin, allowing the sugar in your bloodstream to be absorbed into the cells, thus lowering your blood sugar levels.

Many people feel sluggish after eating without being diabetic, so there is no way a kind internet stranger can tell you with certainty that Metformin will cure this for you. Overall I feel better taking Metformin and eating right.

I absolutely love pasta and have not yet found anything on the market that tastes as good as "real" pasta and doesn't spike my BG level. The best thing I found was this, which my local store carries, but its very expensive:

The best thing I have found is homemade noodles made from soy flour, which is quite low in carbs and high in protein, better than chickpeas. Here is the recipe I use. It is fairly labor intensive. I would roll the dough out as thin as I could and use a pizza cutter to slice noodles as thin as I could. They were still pretty thick but they worked as noodles.

One other tip that has helped me. At least browse some of the keto subs and sites and Youtube channels for recipes. Some are crap, some are ok and some are absolute genius. Its up to you if you want to jump on the keto wagon, some folks swear by for controlling T2. IMHO its worth looking at what they are selling and deciding for yourself what will work for you.

Best of luck to you!

u/NoWheyDude · 2 pointsr/Fitness

No problem, also Black Bean Spaghetti is awesome too!

Egg whites are pretty versatile too, I bake them in jumbo muffin tins for 35min @ 350 with beans and spinach. I place the muffins on a bed of quinoa / spinach / hot sauce / taco seasoning / avocado and it's delicious! Scrambled eggs are also very easy to make quickly.

u/spreal · 2 pointsr/foodhacks

I wanted some this A.M. but found none in the pantry. Btw, this is what they're talking about. The cans from England say "Beanz" instead of "Beans". Taste the same I've been told. In the US you can find them in Meijer stores in the English section where the imported stuff is shelved. These beans are less sweet than US baked beans and don't contain pork. It may be an acquired taste for some but we liked them straight away.

Heinz Beans

u/squatchick · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Seek out the bean pastas and replace some carbs with them, they clock in 25g protein a serving.

But yeah, I snack on greek yogurt, cottage cheese, canned tuna (makes a good dip or salad). Chicken/turkey breast sausage is pretty good, or just make patties or meatballs yourself for something cheaper. I also make chocolate/peanutbutter protein balls (there's various recipes online, but pick one that has a couple scoops of whey in it)

u/beanalicious1 · 2 pointsr/keto

I'm with you there. But, you can make your own refried beans out of these beans and they taste great! Then you can make these tortillas and you could have an amazing bean burrito that's around 4 or 5 carbs. And that's if you load it up with beans.

u/Marisey · 2 pointsr/vegan

The best way to gain weight on a budget is to just eat more cheap foods. Go to the bulk foods section and load up on everything. Next in line is your high carb foods; oats, potatoes and fruits, especially if you're juicing your fruits. If you feel like you just can't eat anymore than you'll need to look at ways of increasing the caloric density of your foods. Which means eating more fatty and processed foods; nuts, seeds and avocados, fake meats and cheeses, cereals, protein bars, shots of olive oil. Don't do that last one. But these tend be a little to a lot more expensive, but you can find some really delicious and inventive foods that aren't too expensive. Like these black bean noodles! Also I'm not an athlete or anything so go check out /r/veganfitness for some advice from people that do this everyday.

u/Narmotur · 2 pointsr/britishproblems

You can get bulk cans of beans on; you'll pay a bit of a premium but it's the cheapest and easiest I've found without running around town. The cans are usually a bit closer to the expiration date than a tin in the UK, but still far enough off that you can store them half a year or so. There are some expat sites online you can buy direct from, but the shipping is usually outrageous.

u/Durchii · 2 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

It's a bizarre staple, but if you're in a pinch it's nice as an inexpensive source of protein.

If you've never tried them, give these a shot; they're not as sweet as American beans and seem to work ten times better for beans on toast.

u/Smilingaudibly · 2 pointsr/xxketo

u/Bardaichila · 2 pointsr/keto

This is mine. My non-keto SO loves it.

  • 1 lb Chorizo, uncased and chopped up
  • 1 lb Ground beef (70/30 or 80/20)
  • 2-3 Slices of bacon
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 Bell pepper (green or red), chopped
  • 2-3 jalapeños, chopped (ditch the seeds if you don't like spice)
  • 1 can [Black Soybeans] ( - drained and rinsed - low carb!
  • One can tomatoes with green chiles
  • Seasoning of choice (usually equal-ish parts of chili powder, cayenne, red pepper flakes, cumin and onion powder, with salt and pepper).
  • Cilantro (leave it out if it tastes like soap to you, weirdo)
  • Sour Cream

    Cook the bacon. Remove it from the pan and cook the chorizo and ground beef in the bacon grease. Throw everything except cilantro and sour cream in a slow cooker for 8 or so hours. Top with cilantro and sour cream.

    In my house we call this chili "Scott can't have this, it has pork".

u/monkey_feather · 1 pointr/vegetarianketo

> 0.8 grams of protein per pound of lean bodyweight should suffice

I agree, I've seen this number in plenty of places. Just wondering why multiple servings of protein powder instead of whole foods, I guess? I tend to limit my intake to one serving a day, but at the end of the day that's personal preference. Again, nuts, eggs, tofu, meat replacements are other good sources.

>Problem with beans, black soybeans or otherwise, is that they're way too high in carbs - otherwise, I would love to.

Black soy beans only have 1 gram net carb. They're great for veggie keto.

>Also, could you expand on why evening is a "weird place" for it?

Re: bulletproof coffee. I've been doing IF as well, I definitely get not drinking it in the morning. Usually people use bullet proof coffee as a tool to stave off hunger for a long time. It seems like a weird place to use those calories, since you'll likely be eating a large meal soon after. Why not include real food for those calories? I think that's why it feels strange. Maybe a fat bomb after dinner? Or some extra cheese with all that veg?

If you still want to do a bulletproof coffee, maybe after lunch to get you to dinner?

>I've never heard that yogurt is something to worry about and now I've heard it twice.

It IS only 7 grams of carbs, but straight from sugar. That is pretty indulgent, considering it's nearly half your carbs for the day. Also having something with that much sugar can cause more sugar cravings and more hunger, which is worse (in my experience) earlier in the day. Maybe try cottage cheese instead?

High in calories? Black bean pasta usually has somewhere on the order of 180 kcal and 25g protein for a 56g serving. On its own that's a great protein-to-calorie ratio, much less after you add meat sauce to it.

u/GeZ_ · 1 pointr/OkCupid

I was in the same boat when I started, struggling to put away 2000 a day, so I have like, powerful skinny person empathy.

A part of eating more is going to come down to just doing it consistently for long enough that your stomach expands, but we can focus on the finer details in the interim.

So for your breakfast, you should try replacing cream cheese with peanutbutter or some pb alternative, since 2 tablespoons of that are going to be like ~200cal. You could probly replace the muscle milk with some sort of seeds and have the same outcome for protein, with better results for calories.

Not eating meat is a little tougher but definitely doable. This Black Bean Spaghetti isn't crazy calorie dense, but it's got 25g protein per 2oz's, which is about the best it'll get outside of protein bars/ shakes.

I have no idea how your schedule looks in a day, but you could consider restructuring as best you can to better suit a big eats kinda rhythm. Waking up earlier so you can eat breakfast earlier is super obvious but some people just don't feel up to it. Something I'm a big fan of is putting whatever my cardio training is (running/ HIIT/ etc) first thing in the morning, cause it gets it out of the way for the rest of the day, and it helps kick start your appetite for breakfast.

When it comes down to it, all this extra stuff I'm talking about is just kind of tertiary, and you'll more than likely just get a bigger appetite as time goes on, cause your stomach will expand naturally, so don't stress if you don't want to try any/ all of these.

For recovery, you want it to be at least the next day, I would think.

Don't worry too much about a week - like I said, the amount of time for recovery will drop pretty quickly!

Whole wheat tortillas work just as well as corn, they're just slightly more expensive in my experience. I have celiac so I can't eat wheat, which is why I do corn, and I've gotten pretty used to the taste/texture (I like white corn better than yellow corn).

This will depend on the product. For example most sardines, will list the nutrition facts with the olive oil drained. Whereas (I just learned now) canned beans will generally list the facts with the liquid included.

You can tell because the USDA Database shows that 130 grams of "Beans, pinto, mature seeds, canned, solids and liquids" is 110 calories and that matches what my can of pinto beans lists; compare this to the 150 calories in 130 grams of "Beans, pinto, canned, drained solids".

Note - it's a lot easier to do this in Cronometer, since it does the math for you (the cups to grams part).
