Is this better Sue?

Two Fridays ago during our SNAPpy diet, we fixed a yummy, inexpensive but carb-loaded tuna casserole, which brought some gentle chiding from Sue.

Tonight we decided to try something that wouldn't cause an immediate run on the nation's supply of insulin. We fixed the White Bean and Tuna Salad with Radicchio from this month's bon appétit; photos are shown on the right.

The cost is similar, but the carb count is less than half the number of the casserole. Another advantage is that the salad doesn't require any cooking, so you don't have to wait for your tuna.

The only practical problem--how to supply a subscription to bon appétit for every family on SNAP. I guess that's what individual mandates are for.

Well, I didn't "chide," but was curious on a grander scale seeing's as "diabetes2" is the word of the day. I guess it's a careful choice between low-cost and good-for-you plus the whole capability (or lack thereof) that we have for educating people trying to save money AND eat decently. Great post and you caught my attention!
