Default Hi from Texas....

Hello everyone.....from Texas here....hope everyone is doing well. I have decided to start losing weight. Yeah, yeah, I know, everyone says that, and it sounds easy, but it's hard! My hardest part is finding recipes that are easy to fix without having to run to the grocery store every other day. Does anyone have any suggestions for websites or recipes they'd like to share? My hubby is doing it with me as well, and so far he's sticking to it. This is actually the first diet he is sticking to! I am so proud of him. He wants to lose 50 lbs, I would like to lose 10-15 lbs. So far things are working out, but seems like I am always cooking! Help! Well, everyone have a wonderful evening! And....send those recipes! Thanks a bunch!

There are lots of recipes here on 3FC that I've found to be quick and easy. I find that I utilize my crock pot a lot, especially when it's cold out like it is now. The night before, I can throw some low-sodium veggie stock, some sliced chicken tenders and some veggies in the crockpot, and maybe a little rice if I feel like it. Then all I have to worry about is maybe a salad and some fruit.

You're off to a good start. One of the things that I find helpful is making a menu for a week and then going to the grocery store. that way you know what you're going to need. Don't forget to add some healthy snacks to the menu. It really doesn't have to be that hard. When you get home prep the vegetables. It really saves a lot of time.

Check www.allrecipes.com and www.recipezar.com. I only shop once per week. I make out my menus for dinner and then make my list for dinner ingredients plus whatever I need for breakfast and lunches to pack for work.
