Stews and soups are the most versitile (and healthy) recipes. Every Sunday night I make a stew and throw in all my leftover vegetables from the week before. I'll have something low-calorie and healthy to eat all week (making it easy to hit my 5 fruits and veggies every day), and saves me money as well - no more rotten vegetables in the trash!

Just a quick reminder I discovered when I ran out of groceries. The ugly can of black beans in the back of the cupboard wasn't so awful as I thought it might be. I put some brown rice with some salsa with it. I had some fresh spinach on the side. It was rather tasty. I was low on $ so that had to last for a couple of meals. I actually lost wt. on it. I had some orange juice to drink and soy milk and a multi vitamin daily plus lots of water. When it's rough going, the tough get going.
I found a little spaghetti sauce to throw into the mix for added moisture. When your out of everything it's amazing what you throw together. Everything but the kitchen sink!
I keep a 16 oz glass next to my kitchen sink. Every time I pass the kitchen sink I fill up the glass and drink it all down. So with the time I am in the kitchen during meal times I easily down 2-3 of these glasses at each meal. Also, when a craving comes on I have made it habitual to reach for my glass next to the kitchen sink instead of heading to the fridge!
