    Hi there! emoticon Thank you so much for your comment on my New Year, New Me Plan blog, and for adding me as a friend! I am adding you too and look forward to getting to know you.

    In answer to your question, unfortunately, eating a lot of microwave meals and processed foods (like Chef Boyardee) will not help if you are trying to lose weight and get healthier. Calorie-wise you might be able to cut the serving sizes in half so as to cut the calories and fat, but the double-edged sword is that it will not satisfy you and you will wind up eating a whole portion or more (which I've done!). Also, I do like Weight Watchers and Lean Cuisine frozen meals for an occasional treat or convenience, but even they can contain too much salt and fat to be eating them on a regular basis. (Not to mention whatever chemicals and such may be in the food, and the expense.) Another alternative frozen meal is Healthy Choice, which usually has lower fat and salt than others.

    I understand your dilemma. My sister who never had a weight problem most of her life and who did NOT know how to cook (and was not interested in cooking) gained over 25 lbs this past year, and her blood pressure was testing high. So I gave her some recommendations which she did follow but my sister had to learn to cook a few basic things. She was surprised that it was not as hard as she thought, and now she's got a routine down, and her blood pressure numbers came down.

    I can give you some ideas on putting healthier meals together with as little cooking as possible but even so, it's hard to get around the protein needs. Let me ask you... if I could give you some easy simple ways to cook a few basics, would you be willing to try? Also, do you have any special food requirements? (allergies or things you don't like to eat). Happy to help! emoticon Karen

    Said the night wind to the little lamb,
    do you see what I see
    Way up in the sky, little lamb,
    do you see what I see
    A star, a star, dancing in the night
    With a tail as big as a kite
    With a tail as big as a kite
    Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
    do you hear what I hear
    Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
    do you hear what I hear
    A song, a song, high above the trees
    With a voice as big as the sea
    With a voice as big as the sea
    Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
    do you know what I know
    In your palace warm, mighty king,
    do you know what I know
    A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
    Let us bring Him silver and gold
    Let us bring Him silver and gold
    Said the king to the people everywhere,
    listen to what I say
    Pray for peace, people everywhere!
    listen to what I say
    The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
    He will bring us goodness and light
    He will bring us goodness and light

    You wrote on my wall "would you be interested" what?! LOL If it's Beachbody, 21 day fix, shakeology or anything like that, no, not interested. I've got my own thing I'm sticking with.
