I'm not much of a cook, and I live alone, so eating out is the easy solution for me. To talk myself into eating at home more often, I made a SparkStreak goal for myself: "Cook dinner at home" 4 out of 7 days. The last two weeks, I've made it 7/7, and I've lost three and a half pounds! Can't help but think there's a correlation.
Shrimp is protein, low-fat, low-calorie, tastes great, cooks super-fast, and if you buy it and cook it at home, you can have a great meal for a fraction of what the same meal costs at a restaurant (one pound of cleaned, shell-on 31/40 count shrimp cost about $6.49 at my supermarket today). Check SparkRecipes or your other favorite food sites for ideas! 4
