Cooking, cooking and more cooking!

Well, I am back on the wagon! I have sort of been running along behind it for the past few months. I was able to maintain for the most part, with a few pounds gained when I went away for Thanksgiving weekend. I have re-started the meal plan that I received from my naturopath this time last year that allowed me to lose my first 100 pounds. I hope that this year continues to be as good to me as the last!
Part of this meal plan is to eat clean with a small amount of whole grains. What I found works best for me is having meals pre-planned, and it also helps if I have meals prepared ahead of time so that I won't grab something that is fast because that usually ends up being high in fat and refined carbs.
So my good friend and I spent the day cooking healthy meals in bulk that we froze to have available to us when we need them. We made a giant batch of cabbage rolls and some spaghetti squash with turkey meatballs. I also made a batch of the south beach quiche that I have been eating for breakfast so I am well stocked!! We plan on getting together to do this every few weeks in order to have a variety of healthy foods stocked in our freezer.
I have been eating this way for the past two weeks and have already lost over 8 pounds, and have an increased bout of energy and motivation. I was hoping and waiting for this because I know I need to continue down this path in order to reach my goal.
