This week we are using the meat that we have stored in the freezer and pantry. My husband is on board with the whole family eating healthy since we found out that he has Rheumatiod Arthritis and that cutting back on meat and saturated fat may help it. We are even going shopping together. I have a little more down time than he does so I find recipies and we go over them together. We also found out that the portion sizes we have been serving the kids and him are way to much so we are going to start cooking smaller amounts to keep all of us from over indulging.

I agree. I have stopped shopping at Costco because I have huge quantities of the same food that I don't want to eat again for a while. I was taking stuff to work so how was I saving money?? That is another reason I don't cook often. I freeze leftovers and they sit in the freezer forever. We will find our own individual arsenal in the battle of the bulge.

I am putting brown rice in the crock-pot today. It will be my main carbohydrate for the week. Once cooled, I have refrigerator containers for it: 1/2 c. serving-size.

I think I'll use my big crock-pot and add 3# of organic carrots, cut into chunks, and three sliced, organic onions, along with sage, though I often add chili pepper in some form instead, and about half of the salt that rice usually calls for. After this cooks, I can separate most of the vegetables for the fridge. This allows for a lot of quick food on hand.

I really like celery, though I prefer to stir-fry it up; it cooks quickly like that and adds good olive oil in the mix.

Hi, Sabrina. You meals sound delicious but let me know about the nutrition values for the ham, potatoes and mac & cheese dinner. Also, a goal of 25 lbs in 3 months may be a little aggressive. I wish you success.
