Pick an easier meal to cook, maybe chilli. Cook a batch on the weekend and freeze some for use the next week. Your only cooking once, but get the benefit of home cooked food at least twice. I've cooked fajitas this weekend

wouldnt it be nice to start all over again . eat like a child and learn to love new foods . our new found foods would be healthy and not full of processed foods and chemicals . the companys are only trying to get a profit . and not worried about your or my health .when it comes to the bottom line you lose . they will sell you short and not give a care about the pain you suffer .
I gave up frozen dinners about 3 months ago and that's morphed in to be very cautious about everything that has preservatives and is overly processed. I think cooking more is a step in the right direction. Snacks - well, I bake my own muffins for the morning and get organic cereals (I really Kahsi's shredded wheat as it also goes well to work). I still eat some pretzel's in the afternoon, but sometimes mix it with string cheese.
I'm not all the way there yet, but the longer I do this, the easier it gets. Good luck!

Love my sun flower seed bread for breakfast, low fat butter and honey. Oats and fresh fruit with natural yoghurt on them days when I have more than 30 minutes in the morning. I hate to leave the house on an empty stomach.

I am very careful when buying bread because there are many brands out there that are "faking" it. So many say"wheat" when the only "wheat" is processed so much that there isn't any value to eating it and it just looks like whole wheat. I love 100% Natural Earth Grains Eco-Grain breads. the 7-Grain has whole grain wheat, whole grain rye, oats, barley, ,corn meal, millet, and sun flower seeds. Their claim is that their farms in Idaho grow Eco-Grain that is farmed using sustainable farming practices. I first read about this in a health food magazine. Any other brands I make sure it says 100% whole wheat.
I know many of you are eating more natural food - less processed. I would like to do this but I am a bit lazy. Also, I am very child like in that I do not eat many veggies or beans because I really do not care for them. What other foods can I focus on? I do eat my fruits and whole wheat bread. I am also starting to cook (easy quick recipes) now that I am home for more than weekends. I love breakfasts.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have.
I AM STRONG!
