In Response to allergy to fiber and wheat products:
Hello, I am slim and I exercise 1 hour daily but I only can eat white flour products. I get stomach problems with wheat and fiber products. Most of what I eat are vegetables and fruits. I am lactose intolerant too. I only can eat certain kind of foods. No creams, no sweets, no bread products, no potato chips, no popcorn. I can eat some legumes. I have problems when I travel and I can't find anything edible at airports. I can't handle sodas or juices. I like beef, chicken and fish but prefer to have my proteins from legumes. In summary, I would like more recipes combining 2 oz. of protein and vegetables. Can anyone help? thanks so much.

It sounds like you may greatly benefit from a consultation from your local Hy-Vee dietitian to help identify some good food choices based on your specific needs and to ensure that you are consuming a balanced diet. Below is a great recipe for this time of year that combines protein from black beans with some other vegetables. I would recommend that you visit the Hy-Vee website and browse the recipes found under the meal solutions tab for more ideas. Good luck!
