I love the taste of food but most of it is fattening foods from delivery. I like the idea of cooking but it is hard for me. I say my relationship with food is 3

    I love to cook

    Not all meal preparation has to be hard. Today's grocery stores have lots of shortcuts to healthy eating. My husband just brought home a bag of pre-cut broccoli and cauliflower that can be steamed in the bag. I am just eating them raw, but I like them that way. If you can take your time reviewing what the store offers, you can find lots of treasures. And the bonus is that it cost way less than your deliveries.
    Good luck to you!

    It's hard to get away from those "fattening foods" because they do taste good, however, you can also find some way to avoid them. On the August chat I listed some things to substitute, which aren't as fattening, but may quench those cravings. I'll post them here, I hope it helps you out. :)

    Substitutes to curb those cravings:

    1) Dried fruit for candy cravings, you can even dry your own with a dehydrator!

    2) Whole wheat/low fat banana bread instead of cake.

    3) Roasted sweet potato fries instead of french fries. (less fat, use olive oil and just a touch of salt)

    4) Low cal sports drinks instead of high energy drinks.

    5) Mineral water, add lemon or lime, instead of soda.

    6) Frozen yogurt instead of ice cream

    7) Oatmeal instead of cereal with sugar in it.

    8) If you crave chips, make you're own; baked chips you have created can have less salt, smaller amount of oil, and are better for you.

    9) Olive oil instead of high fat oils.
