I typically try and cook large meals when I can so that we can eat them twice or I can take them to work and eat. Depends on the weather and sports really. My long term goal is to continue meal planning (tonights project) and cooking in large amounts when I can.

Leftovers are great unless you cannot freeze them or if you get sick of them. As it is, it can also be hard to make smaller batches. Good lluck with the long term goals.

I have to quit cooking such large meals that I am stuck with leftovers that I get sick of eating. Some freeze quite well, but others don't. I need to plan better to cook more often, but in smaller portions.

When I organize my time better, I cook at home more. This keeps me from stopping on the way home to pick up this/that(usually processed and over priced).

My long-term goal is to keep making dinners rather than saying, "I'm too tired" and grabbing something. That's really it: cook at home 6 days a week. :)

My long term goal is to continue to batch cook so I always have at least 3 or 4 choices of meals in the freezer. I also want to try at least 2 new recipes each month.

I am at the point now that proccessed food does not seem appealing at all, still have some difficulty with staying 100% with it but by cooking my meals in advance helps so much, I made garden chicken salas for my lunches next week and chicekn alfredo for dinner using whole wheat paste and light alfredo, have fruits and veggies for sides and to snack on, a few water bottles in fridge and larger ones for workouts and while I am at home.

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.

My long-term goals are:
Plan my meals a week in advance taking advantage of what I already have in the house.

Stick closer to my list when I grocery shop

Try at least one new recipe a week.

I will continue to plan my meals, find ways to cut fat and sugar from the recipes, using substitutes. We eat out a bit, so will have to make healthier choices when I do. I have been trying a new Spark recipe every week and I will continue to do this,I have also been choosing fruits and veggies I haven't tried before, adding some variety to my menus! emoticon emoticon emoticon

It seems to be a common theme with the long term goal to continue with the planning of meals. I have to admit that it's the thing that I've not mastered and need to continue to work on. I need to account for more "left over days." I find that I have food that needs to be eaten before I have to toss it and then my meal schedule is thrown off and I get discouraged.

I'll continue to refine the process until it feels like second nature!

I also cook at home. It's rare when we eat out. I'm just going to keep cooking healthy and hope to learn some new tricks down the road!

That's my goal, too! Planning everything from breakfast to dinner including all snacks insures that i will have all the food i need on hand. it makes life sooo much easier, takes out all the guess work and helps me stick to healthy choices.

I already cook at home a lot. It just isn't practical to take 5 people out to eat very often. It costs way too much. So my goal is to continue to plan my meals for the week. If my meals aren't planned, that is when I end up eating out or fixing a quick unhealthy dinner.
