I get emails from Self.com, myrecipes.com (cooking light), and Sparkpeople every day. I save the emails and then once a week when I get my grocery store ads via email I pick out the recipes I want to make. I also go through sparkrecipes and look for ideas to tweek to my liking/what I have in the house. It took some effort up front, especially since I have a crazy scheudle, but I have found that once I fell into the swing of having menus planned in advance that I already knew didn't need tweaking, I could just do my thing. In general, the biggest change I've made have ben using nonstick spray to cook with and just flavor my foods with olive oil instead of just coating my pan with an eyeballing of oil and cooking away. I am saving lots of calories this way, but not depriving myself. My hubby & I both love to cook and eat, so, being healthy still has to be delicious. One last thing - a HUGE thing for me has also been to use the recipe calculator feature on sprakrecipes to see just what my 'go to' meals really add up to that I make when I'm in a rush/rut/etc. Again, a little effort has added up to healthier meals that I can have in mind as regulars now. Hope that was a help!
