By the time we get home from the store, I barely have enough energy to put the food away, let alone prepare anything. My husband controls my schedule.
As for meat in the recipes, it is easy to cook double whenever you prepare it and 'throw' some into most of the meatless dishes. Another trick I heard on 'The Biggest Loser' - grind the vegetables into the meatloaf and it is easy to eat.

Shop online! Some supermarkets actually do Sunday deliveries...as recommended, make the list on the fridge, then load up a pc, do your shopping and arrange a delivery on your day off! Its great because its easy to find better priced items and you aren't distracted by things that aren't on the list so its easier to not by chocolate and other unhealthy food that you will see in store :-)

I appreciate the meatless ideas. We are on a very strict budget and can afford meat a couple of times a week. Thanks for expanding our menu!
I love these ideas, just waht happened to the meat, like TLEVENTER said. We are dairy farmers so we tend to appreciate what we can raise on our own and that includes alot of very, very lean beef. When I cook it, there is hardly any fat to drain off. It's alot mroe healthy than ground turkey that is whie with fat alot of the time. Just a thought.
I just can't shop without a list!!! It is hard to try to convince others that eating healthy does not take a lot of time. I do spend an awful lot of time in the kitchen because I do almost everything from scratch such as cook dry beans, make my own dressings for salad, wash and spin dry heads of romaine, and the list goes on. We have to prioritize.
