I tend to lose slowly and in the past motivation wasn't very high. But this year hubby is on board with me and we both plan to lose as much as we can and get healthier. <BR> I look forward to getting to know you all. <BR> Thu, 31 Jan 2013 13:59:12 EST Nourished Kitchen http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=17971x48448x51909574 More than a food blog, this site has many recipes and other resources. <BR> <BR> <link>nourishedkitchen.com/ </link> Thu, 31 Jan 2013 09:37:28 EST Yeah that Vegan Stuff http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=17971x48448x51768261 She has moved on from this food blog to a general blog but doesn't update that much anymore.

I have a bunch of parsley and cilantro that I won't be able to use up before it starts going bad. I haven't tried any method of salvaging intentionally. I did have some Thyme dry up in the fridge on it's own but it wasn't very flavorful when I tried to use it. <BR> <BR> Do you have a goto site for techniques or a blog post about what works to share?

Thu, 20 Jan 2011 13:42:30 EST It's a Facebook blog, ya'll! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=17971x48448x39312734 Once a week, my love and I get together with a couple of friends and cook. The twist on this is that we buy the ingredients for dinner for each other, and the cooking couple has no idea what's purchased until it's time to cook! We've been doing this since September, and while it may not always be the HEALTHIEST meal, I've found it's not the worst, either. This is a great way to incorporate foods that you wouldn't normally eat in your diet, as well as getting "dinner out" meals on a budget!...
