sometime smaller meals are great. i am by myself but bulk cooking is my way to be lazy on days i do not want to cook. i cook a big meal freeze and when i am lazy or just to tired after working out i just microwave and i am done for the day.

Hi Kate! Glad to have you here.

I understand the cooking for 1 dilema! My boyfriend doesn't live with, but I have 2 roommates who are not enthused with my cooking. Please feel free to share any tips you might have on meals that save well and smaller healthy recipes!

I've started eating a lot more salads at dinner time with some fajita chicken and dried fruit when I don't want to cook. Works great for one and I can add as much lettuce or spinach I want to fill my tummy!

Hi Kate, sounds like you a great start! I have recently started cooking at home in bulk too for the week, because my husband and kids are not into diet food at all. I've been making breakfast and lunch for the week on Sundays, and sticking with that seems to be best way for me to go. I'm veeeryyyyy picky, so for example I will make turkey chili without beans. My slip-ups always come when my husband wants to eat out for dinner, or when I have nothing in the house, so make sure you keep your house stocked up with healthy items!

Hi,
I'm Kate and I am looking for any way to lose weight. I have figured out over the past couples of weeks that my biggest issue is that I love the convenience of going through that drive through! Even when I am exercising regularly, I wasn't losing any weight, and I had myself convinced that I was working out so I HAD to be losing weight, never did I give a second thought that I ate a 1,400 dinner at McDonalds, forgot breakfast, and ate a pizza roll for lunch.
SOOOO I started cooking meals at my house. I live with my boyfriend but he never eats at home (he manages a restaurant), so basically I thought it was a waste to cook for one. So I figured out a way around that, I bought great tupperware, and started making meals that would make four servings, 3 for the fridge and 1 to eat right away. So on days when I don't want to cook I have a wide variety of foods to chose from in the fridge. And when I have extra time in a day I cook (the other day I made a chicken meal, homemade chicken noodle soup, and chocolate chip cookies enriched with fiber).

I wanted to join this challenge because since I have been cooking at home I have started to see the weight come off and I feel so much better during the day. I lost 2 pounds last week which has NEVER happened to me. I'm still very new to cooking and I will readily admit not everything I have cooked is as healthy as it could be, hence this challenge.

I'm a recovering cancer patient who needs to lose 60 pounds as well as help my body recover from treatment, so here's to hoping this challenge will kick my butt into gear!
