Yay! I had planned to get back to you with some suggestions, but it seems as if instead you've shared lots of new ideas with me!

I plan to keep adding to it, so feel free to make suggestions!

For some reason I'm at just the same kind of point in my life - allergies and restrictions on funding for a decent diet are my issues at the moment.

It is really helpful to see your list. Even if our needs are slightly different it has given me some good ideas to revolutionise my meals!

Allergies are a giant pain in the ass, possibly even more than money is. >.< A few of those links are to Budget Bytes; their recipes are cheap and great.

If one of your allergies is dairy, I have a post about dairy substitutions that might be useful to you.

This is is awesome and helpful for me too! I tend to get stuck in food ruts/habits and need no cook things for midday meals when working from home. Glad you posted the round up!

I had a note about one recipe source, but was unsure if this was appropriate to share here. So if it is, please let me know.

Oooo, this is a nice list!

I've been loving my Scottish Oats (1/2 cup takes about 5-7 minutes to cook on the stovetop). I add in some fruit, fresh or dried, a little sweetener (brown sugar or honey) and I'm good to go.

Good morning!

My friend Fleta (I love her name, and I love that at 80 she is easily the most mature, badass woman I know) gave me a 1.5 qt crock pot for my birthday. When I feel the "hot cereal craving" the night before (or even for supper before bedtime) I load it with 4 tbsp of my rice-bean mix (5 lb black rice, 1 lb black beans), half tbsp of seaweed (the kind that looks like gunpowder tea), 1/2 tsp of turmeric (if I'm having an achey or asthmatic week), a sprinkle of fenugreek and cinnamon. Either run overnight or through the day depending with two or so mugs of water.

It sounds like an odd, gloppy mixture and it is - the other flavors cover the turmeric, the seaweed was for a time when Big Mariel Stress was hammering my thyroid. It's good with nut butters, molasses to sweeten, or soy and salt for savory. At the time I came up with the ingredients, it was a way to do something Only For Myself which was a desperate need.

(I'd like to try it with honey, but I am stubbornly refusing to buy honey - this is the year I will build a top bar hive and give a hive a home. Goddamn climate change, whatever the cause, is waking the local hives too early and they're swarming the feed bins on the farm desperate for protein. In high desert. In February.)

Didn't mean for this to turn into long reply, but it's my morning relax time, before the crazy of the day sets in. :)
