That's awesome! Congratulations to both of you. That's really inspiring. Part of my plan is to walk my dog every day. I've already given up carbonated drinks and am working on smaller portion size.

CUISINEEXAMINER, that sounds really good! It's certainly better than fried food. I've been looking for recipes to try. I can't use the meal planner because there's a lot of food that I can't eat because I'm sensitive to them. I can usually modify recipes and the result usually turns out pretty well and you don't miss anything that wasn't there before.

Afoot61, thank you!

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I make a fairly healthy breading for oven-baked chicken and pork chops: mix 2 cups oatmeal, 1/3 cup Parmesan, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup wheat germ or chopped nuts, and about 1/2-1 teaspoon of anything you like from the shelf: oregano, thyme, herbes de Provence, rosemary, etc. I'm sure you might use spicier spices (chili powder, cumin, turmeric) and probably any other dry shredded cheese. Spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-18 minutes. Dip chicken/pork in beaten egg combined with 1/3 cup milk, then into the baked crumb mixture. Bake the chicken or pork chops for about 45-55 minutes at 375 degrees F.

You'll have leftover mixture: sprinkle on salads or on top of casseroles or vegetables. It keeps in the refrigerator up to 2 months.

Thank you. My family discovered one alternative to fried chicken called Panko Chicken. It's a Japanese style food. You use panko crumbs to coat the chicken and bake it. It's a favorite now. I'm so excited to get my hands on more recipes!

Welcome to the team. There are lots of recipe ideas on sparkrecipes as well as in the recipe box forum on this team. There are also alternatives for frying. Fried chicken can be copied and then baked in the oven as can fish. Good luck in meeting all your goals.

Hi, my name is Talia. I'm a 23 year old college student/custodian/Avon Lady and am looking to get down to around 150 lbs. I currently weigh 200. I'm not very good at cooking healthy. I live in Arkansas. Everything is fried. Even pickles. So, I need help and lots of it. I would appreciate any recipe suggestions or accountability buddies.
