Re: cheap fats for a skinny skinny person
I think (dry) beans, lentils and split peas are among the lowest for GI and price. So now that you know, there's no excuse for not including a LOT of beans, lentils or split peas in your daily meals. (Note: I don't mean canned beans etc..) It's okay to combine the above items with whole grain rice, whole grain pasta, barley etc. because it's the overall GI for the meal that counts. And these starches are inexpensive too.
Here's where the fat comes in: You make a soup (not canned soup) with the above ingredients plus vegetables. In other words, vegetable soup. Then after the soup is in your dish, you sprinkle in 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts.
If soup is too much trouble, you can make a salad with the same ingredients.
Extra virgin olive oil can also be used. Buy it when it's on sale.
The question is: Where will the fat accumulate on your body? You may be disapointed if it goes to all the wrong places, like your stomach.
