Hi Holly,
I am single and only work part time. I shop at our local farmers market. It is a lot cheaper than the grocery store. I usually cook in bulk and freeze in single servings so that I can just pop it into the microwave so that I do not have to do major cooking every day. Homemade soups are a great idea. You can make them healthier and they are a lot cheaper than canned. And can be frozen as well.

Beans! Canned are super easy! I like putting them on a salad or in a soup..or mashed and spread on veggies or a sandwich thin. I like sweets too...Greek yogurt with fruit instead of ice cream...dried fruit and a few nuts instead of cookies..spread peanut butter on fruits or celery...I shop on the cheap..my Aldi has all of the foods I mentioned. I also shop at my local ethnic markets...they have herbs and fruits vegetables and beans super cheep in bulk. I also go to a thrift bakery for breads...so I can get whole grain light breads for about a third of the price.

Good luck! Remember, little changes can really make a positive difference! emoticon

Hi Holly,

I don't know if you have one (or perhaps could get one from Freecycle), but making slow cooker meals is a great way to make healthy meals (especially with lots of beans). The best part - the SC makes so much that you can usually freeze 1/2 for dinner another night.

My name is Holly and I would love to get back to my healthy weight.
I love to eat sweets and sometimes don't get all my veggies in.
So, I thought I would give your challenge a try.
Do you have any tips for someone who doesn't have a job and need easy meals?
Looking forward to getting healthy with you guys in 2013!
