Dieting + low budget?

I'm on summer vacation and obviously that introduces the idea of snacking (groan). I've been sticking to a 1500 calorie day pretty well, and I'd like to keep it going over the summer. Does anyone have some great lunch and dinner recipes that are under about 500 calories each?

I'm also a teacher and that means no pay over the low-budget ideas would be appreciated!

Answer on Dieting + low budget?

Wraps are great thrifty, and diet friendly. Get your favorite greens, a can of your favorite beans (chick peas are excellent for this), and some of your favorite veggies. You can also throw on there skim milk cheese or some chopped nuts, lite dressings, or just drizzle with olive oil. Tortillas last forever, and greens in a bag are portioned just right that they can be eaten up in just a couple days, same with the beans. Nuts are in the last forever category, as is the cheese.

For snacking, try GORP. (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts) I usually add multi-grain Cheerios to mine, and other dried fruits and nuts.

Edamame (soy beans in the pod) can be found in the freezer health foods section. Grill or boil them, then toss them with salt or your favorite seasonings. Great diet food and incredibly tasty!! Also good shelled tossed with pasta, salads, rice...etc.

I have tons of recipes. If you have any questions let me know!

If popular people are always so hated, rued, and unpopular...?

then how does that make them popular?

Example: Justin Bieber
(don't mean to start up another Bieber bashing session, but he's the best example)
