So what does a broke dancer trying to lose weight buy for food?
BEANS. Black, kidney, cannellini, pinto. 95 cents a can, two meals right there.
Normal meals include beans and tomatoes, couscous with roasted vegetables (if you place the veggies in aluminum foil, you don't even need a pan!), oats with peanut butter and chopped apple.
Snacks are almonds, soynuts, veggies with hummus, and apples with peanut butter.
All high-protein, high-fiber, low(ish) calories.
