Hi everyone. My name is Rory and I am a recipe-aholic. I love trying new recipes and new ingredients, and often find myself browsing recipes for my next inspiration. Hoping to learn a few new things from this group and hope to share some of my own knowledge and ideas as well.

Greetings from Sarnia, Ontario, Canada! My name is Lynn and I am trying to eat healthier. I love to cook, bake and try new recipes. My healthy eating goals include: eating less meat, eating less processed foods, eating more whole grains, and eating a well-balanced diet. I'm not a picky eater, and I love spicy foods. One food I try to avoid is soybeans and TVP products (it's controversial, and a diet of homemade dog food without it does wonders for my Westie).

Hi, I'm Phyllis. I love to cook and am learning to use more whole grains and vegetables and less butter. It looks like this team isn't very active and that's okay, but I hope some of you are out there.
I am joining because occasionally I have a specific need for recipes. Currently the problem is that I have a colonoscopy scheduled and need 3 days of "low residue foods". In the past, that just meant mac-and-cheese and no veggies. Well, I'm trying to do better than that. Any suggestions?

Hey I am new to this group, I love to cook, and especially healthy recipes. I hate to make the same things over and over again, but due to a budget, I can't always make all the things I would like to. So I am always on the look out for quick, and inexpensive meal ideas. I have a 14 year old son that I have to please as well. Where on this site, can we share recipes? I have many to share, as well as to looking for some new ones. I am looking forward to hearing from you all. Also I am a 3 shot a day diabetic, so that is important when looking for new recipes as well....

Keep Sparkling!! Hugs! Shannon

I am re-introducing myself since I have been gone for awhile battling cancer. So far I have won the battle and am anxious to get back to good health and good eating. I started my journey with SP in 2006 but was lazy and stayed at the same weight for years until I gained more. Now I am 60lbs lighter and need to lose 60 more. I am ready to use SP and my friends to help me with this journey.

Dear God,

I surrender my body&my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess &unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy&balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health and life energy.And,finally,teach me to love my body&to care for it from this day forth. Amen

Hi, everyone! My name is Cassie and I am from Madison, WI. And, like everyone else on this team, I LOVE to cook and am constantly looking for new recipes to try. I, unfortunately, don't have anyone to cook for, but I do it all the same. I get a lot of my recipes from Cooking Light, Eating Well, and Weighgt Watchers. I also try the occassional Rachael Ray recipe, if I feel that it will fit into my new lifestyle. I am really excited to share some of my favorites with you and try some that y'all have to offer.

Personal achievement will be your key to happiness.

Hi guys!
My name is Betzy and I love to cook! I am always looking for new healthy recipes online, or turning old unhealthy recipes into healthy ones. I work crazy hours, so on my days off; usually monday and tuesdays, I tend to cook something that will last all week. Being winter I'm into soups and stews, I have LOTS of recipes I'd like to share and looking for more.

My name is Sophie and I'm a fooodie. Joining Sparkpeople last month has given me a reason to re-visit old recipes to see how they measure-up when reduced to calories, carbs, fats and proteins.

I almost never eat "meat with feet" and, so far, the hardest part of meal planning has been getting enough protein.

Today I roasted eggplant, tomatoes, a red bell pepper and some garlic. Everything is better with garlic, n'est pas.

The recipe for my whole wheat pasta with pureed eggplant and tomato is here:

Hi Everyone!

I love to cook but haven't been doing it much while I've been losing my weight. However, I'm going to start incorporating more cooking into my life again.

I've always cooked fairly healthy but have issues with portion control...especially is the dish is really yummy.

So I look foward to learning some new recipes and sharing some of my own with everyone!

Cheers!

Hi - my name is Tam. I love to cook and eat - so guess why I'm here? ;) I have to be at work very early (5 a.m.) and hate the idea of messing with much to get a good healthy breakfast. Not much for cold smoothies, and sick of oatmeal. Anyone have any suggestions for things that can be made ahead and kept, and are easily portable for eating on the run? Also, open to buddy support, so give me a holler!

Hey, I'm 21 and live in Hawaii. I'm a nursing major and I've learned a lot the past few semesters about diet and nutrition. I'm all for eating healthy and try to substitute ingredients in recipes to make them healthier. My mom and I love it all, but I'm having a hard time getting my dad to actually enjoy a healthy meal. I hope to share some of my recipes and find some yummy ones to try form others.

Hi. My name is Eliza, I am 26 years old, and have a 2 year old son. Anyhow, I love cooking and trying new recipes. Most of the books that I own have recipes with high fat and high calorie content. Therefore, I am looking for new low fat recipes. Also, I get bored with chicken because it's mostly what I eat!

Hi, I am Neeter, married, no kids (except for three kitty kids), and soon retired (end of June). I love to cook from scratch and use very little processed foods. I love finding recipes that are quick and delicious - and they are out there without having to use a lot of processed foods!

I have found only one activity that sidesteps my thoughts of food - sewing. I will starve if I am deep in a project and don't want to stop to eat. Now if I could sew 24/7 I would not have this problem - 80 pounds to lose!

I look forward to this journey and trading and sharing recipes. emoticon

Hi everyone my name is Kara and I am new to this team and rather new to the whole cooking scene. I really never liked or knew how to cook. I joined Spark wanting to be healthy and happy and saw that the only way I was going to do this would be to give up junk food and fast food and eat homemade food. I started small by taking simple recipes from spark recipes and my family was so grateful and happy that i attempted to cook for them plus it was yummy. I now cook dinner every night.

Thanks for the welcome! Does anyone here get Clean Eating magazine? I've bought 2 issues and like what I see so far. The recipes in there don't seem to be real out there. I haven't tried any yet. I'm on a mission to get organized and set daily goals for myself. One of my goals is to try 1 new recipe a week. I'll let you know.

Let's give a great big welcome to Patty and Jennie. We are glad to have you with us. I hope you enjoy the recipes and will also share some so we can enlarge our Healty Recipe library.

The more good recipes we have to choose from the easier it will be to get this weight off.

Hi! I'm new! My name is Patty, 53 yo, married w/4 boys. I've been on Spark for a while. I like to check out people's spark page to see what teams they are on, etc. I strive to eat clean but my family doesn't. I am looking for healthy recipes that my family won't know is relatively clean. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hi Missy, it is nice to meet you. I would love to get to know you and share recipes. The leader of this group has had surgery but she has a lot of knowledge on nutritious recipes and is a really nice person. If we all could post recipes and chat a bit it would be a pleasant surprise when she gets back!
Hugs. Judy emoticon

Welcome to the team. I think writing a cookbook is a great idea. I am in the process of writing cookbook number 4. My other 3 are about to become published. I am so excited. it is a long hard process. Most of the recipes I have posted to this site are ones I have worked with for my books.

Hi Everyone, My name is Donna and I've been married for 33 years to my HS sweetheart, We have two college age kids that are just starting to work but live at home. I've been on sparks since March of 08 and love it here. I have not lost much but everyone is so nice I just get back on the horse and keep on trying. I just found this group and just maybe this will be the key to jump starting me into a losing phase. I love to cook and want to make a lot of my recipes healthy and delicious. I am so glad to be here and hope to be an asset to the group!

As Always, ~Donna~

Hi I'm Miriam. I've been an SP member since February and loving every minute of it.

I'm all for "EASY" especially when it comes to cooking. I work full time and have a hard time thinking up meals every day!

Looking forward to meeting everyone here and learning your tricks. I'll share what I know, too.

Hi All,
My name is flowerpower08 (Judy), and I live in PA. I enjoy cooking, and also eating. It's very hard for me to cook something new and, if it turns out, not O.D. on it. I've always wondered how all of those great cooks on the Food Channel are almost always slim and trim!! I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I just choose to forget it from time to time. I'm looking foward to sharing, not only recipes, but good support as well. Looking foward to this team!!

Hi My name is Maria Rita but everyone call me Rita. I am 46 years, married, and mother to 3 daughters ages 24,22,10. I love to cook, it is one of my most favorite things to do, and I love making the food taste delicious, my problem is I love sauces, creams, butter, and other rich items. I am looking to find some healthy eats that my family will love just as much as the food I make now.

Hi, my friend's call me Peach. I am married with 2 grown children. I love to cook, but it has become somewhat challenging because I have many food allergies and restrictions and my husband is a diabetic. I'm hoping to find other healthy meal ideas.

Hello everyone my name is Karla and I am 47, married with no kids at home and only one dog, Merlin.
Not only do I love to cook but I want to cook healthier and with more natural stuff. Since Merlin gets left overs he wants me to cook this way to....ha

My problem is that my hubby (from the UK) does not like beef so I need to spice up my chicken, pork, buffalo and turkey.

I think this will be a wonderful place to do it.

PS I grew my garden this year in kiddy pools since my landlord would not let me dig up the yard and it was wonderful and I had tons of great veggies. You might give it a try and if you have any questions just buzz me.

Hope all are having a wonderful day.

Hello all. I live in Michigan and I cannot stand on my feet for long periods of time so I need recipes that are quick and easy but healthy and whole. I try to stay away from processed foods and prefer things as they come straight from the garden. I wish I had a garden.

Intelligence, guided by kindness, is the highest wisdom.

Hello My name is RobinLaurie. I joined SparkPeople almost two weeks ago and hope to see a change this weekend when I step on the spooky scale. This forum is great. I love seeing all the recipes and being able to enjoy something that tastes fattening and isn't. Getting married in June and working on looking great in that gown.

Hello all!
I've been with SP for 2 months and have lost 25 pounds. I love to cook and to find new recipes to keep things interesting for my family of 4. I saw some interesting things on this team, so thought I'd hop on board.
emoticon
One thing I noticed is that it makes things MUCH easier when people add links to the recipes they've posted. Just right click and copy it from the SP recipe page, then click "Add a Link" above your message box. It makes everything much quicker. I hope to be sharing SOON!

Glad you found our little group. Your meatloaf recipes sounds good. Why not post your recipe with the changes you made in our BEEF category. I think others would be interested.

I joined spark a couple of weeks ago. I always like getting new recipe ideas to keep my diet interesting. Last night I made the meatloaf surprise that is on my sparkpage. It was really good, I used ground turkey and beef, instead of just beef that was the only change that I made. It was delicious. I like having the calories and nutrient info on the recipe so that I can track it easier.

A day without laughter is wasted.

Knowledge is power!

Attitude is a small thing that makes a huge difference.

Hi! I've been sparking for a couple of months and have been learning alot about living and eating healthy. I joined up to learn some new recipes and share the ones I find that are successful.

Welcome to the group. I love to share recipes, how about you? I posted one yesterday on "What is for Dinner". That is what I was having along with some vegetable stir fry. Saturday evening is my once weekly vegetable night.

Hello everyone! My name is Sari and I live in Minnesota. I joined this group because I am actually in the process of learning to cook (not a skill I was born with) and hoping to learn to cook some healthy meals. Pretty soon here I will be buying my own home and my boyfriend will be moving in with me. He is also a SP member and LOVES his new lifestyle. I am hoping he and I can cook some healthy meals together! Nice to meet everyone and I will see you around the boards!!
