My long term goals include:

1. To continue to menu plan -- based on the individual option lists I have created for each meal.

2. Trying new recipes or variations of my favorite ones more often.

3. Maintaining a basic pantry inventory and making sure to rotate pantry items -- using the oldest items first and/or using what I already have on hand before buying more.

My goal is to continue being excited about learning how to cook and shop better! I'm looking forward to all the exciting recipes that SparkPeople has to offer. I will continue to plan my meals ahead and put the ingredients together on a shelf so that it will be less time consuming when it's time to make dinner.

THANKS for the challenge - it was really eyeopening for me! :)

My goal is to keep trying healthy recipes, and to keep planning my meals out! Making lunches on Sundays, gives me 3 days of lunch at work and I don't have to worry about what to make calories or anything. I just put it in my tracker ahead of time, so it saves me time and calories! I also like the dry erase board in my kitchen, that way I know what to make, and my family doesn't have to bug me, what are we having for dinner! :)

This has been a great challenge, can't believe its almost over already!

My goal is to continue to do more meal-planning; I've noticed that I feel a lot better when I eat food I've prepared at home, as opposed to when I eat out at a restaurant. I'm also trying to be a little more adventerous by making new recipes so I don't get stuck in a rut.

My long-term goals are:
1. Continue to do weekly meal planning
2. Decrease the amount I eat out for lunch during the week to 1 time a week
3. Try a new recipe a week
4. Track my eating at least 5 days a week

I recently bought the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook, and it has given meal ideas which are heathy yet my family will still eat. This will help with goal #1 and #3. This challenge has helped me to make small changes that I can keep long-term. Thanks!

One of my goals, that I actually set last week, is to make at least 1 new healthy meal per week from Jillian Michaels Master Your Metabolism cook book. I look through the book at what I want to make for the next week so I can buy the ingredients before hand and have everything ready for when I do make the recipe. It helps me try new and healthy recipes.

My goal is to make at least 1 recipe in the slow cooker during the weekend that can be used later in the week.

I would also like to cook from scratch at least 3 times a week and bring my lunch to work daily.

My goals are to:

- Bring a filling lunch to work every day (not just something quick like a piece of fruit). Also, try to pack it the night before.

- Cook at least 5 days a week, and on days where I know I'm going to be late, make enough the day before so that I have leftovers ready when I get home.

- Experiment with at least one new recipe every week.

- Every grocery shopping trip bring home a fruit or vegetable I've never tried.

- Cut down my salt intake, because I still rely on it way too much for seasoning. I printed out the list from the Spark article and have it hanging on my fridge now!

My goal is to keep planning meals 4-5 times per week (this gives room for us eating leftovers), and to keep trying new and healthier recipes. I'm discovering that just b/c a recipe has ingredients in it that I've never used before...doesn't mean I won't like it. AND, usually all the ingredients in a recipe are meant to compliment each other....so eating the whole thing together....not just picking a piece off the top...is when it will taste it's best.

I loved reading through everyone's goals. Very inspirational! I hope you are all doing well with them.
My goals are to continue cooking at home the majority of the month, including all work lunches. I'd like to get back to doing one veggitarian meal a week, and sticking to that! And definitely more fish, less red meat. Thankfully hubby is a willing participant, and even gives suggestions!
Lastly, I'd really like to bake more, so incorporating more substitutions is in the plans. And searching SP recipes I think should prove helpful. :)

I liked seeing the amount of fresh veggies in my grocery cart this week. One of our meals will be fish. I'm excited about the change. I tried a Pumpkin Bisque recipe this week and REALLY didn't like it. My DD didn't like it, either....too plain. BUT, was proud of ourselves for having tried it, anyway.

Goal is to cook at home at least 5 days a week and I've trained my family to PREFER brown rice over white. The kids are always begging me to cook them asparagus! We all prefer healthy food now, which is nice, so I don't feel like I'm eating something different than the rest of the family! Love it! Thank you SP! emoticon

I am going to continue to cook some sort of seafood once a week. I had avoided cooking seafood because, some of my previous attempts failed. I know I can grill or do a low fat oven-fry method. I've also made shrimp creole. The other goal I have is to "slim down" some of our family favorite recipes.

Blessings! Dee

Before starting this challenge, I have to admit I did a fair bit of cooking at home. But it helped me more than I thought it would by giving me tons of additional information about re-making recipes and the various options I can use. I love it!!

I will definitely continue to cook healthy meals 5x a week and be creative. I bought a new huge spice rack and have been going mad since it's all filled up. Spices and herbs are my new best friends :)

I took two days and ate only fruits, veggies, and one cup of brown rice daily. I found it exciting to try new ways to eat the foods so I wasn't bored and surprised that I wasn't starving. I have come away with the realization that I should fill up on those things and add in the meat, dairy, carbs when I need a little extra instead of it being the other way around. I think I will make a huge batch of veggie soup in the crockpot weekly as a staple in my diet.

I really am enjoying the substitutions too. I am finding things I love more than the real thing (Boca meatless crumbles are delicious) and other things I would rather have the real thing. I loved the article on substitutions when baking and know that will come in handy.

My other goal is to try one new recipe weekly.When I get bored I tend to binge. I have loved discovery Hungry Girl recipes!!!

Speaking of spices. My daughter bought me a new spice rack and spices for Christmas. I am looking forward to using the spices that I am not familiar with. I too, will be freezing my own dinners and lunches. I bought a "healthy" frozen dinner at the grocery store to carry to work. I prepared the dinner and then found it to not to be to my taste liking. So I had to wait until I got home to eat. Long time...So I will be batch cooking and freezing.
Have a great holiday season. Joan

My long term cooking goals are:
--make my own frozen meals for both myself and my family and friends (I'm single so usually there's plenty to go around and this will help them stay healthy too!)
--host a dinner party once a month. My friends are all jazzed about eating healthier and trying new things - now's the time to capitalize on that enthusiasm!
--eat seasonally - we get fresh produce year 'round where I live. I want to experiment with new and exciting recipes for seasonal produce - especially various ethnic dishes!
--get to know spices better. Step one - go through the spices I have now and discard any that are old or I never use. Go to Sprouts and pick up new spices that I do use or are called for in new recipes. Visit various ethnic groceries for specialty spices or spice blends. Really - is there anything quite as lovely as wonderful SPICES??
--continue to grow my own seasonal fruits and veggies
--cook with different grains and make them a staple - there are so many good ones out there!

I will continue meatless mondays,eat more fish and poultry,lean red meats and load up on fruits and veggies. I will continue to use nutrition tracker and stay within my guidelines. Water & tea on the rocks!!!I plan in advance, when I eat out, and fit it into daily calorie intake. Utalize my cookbooks more and make healthy substitutes as needed. Keep a healthy pantry and fridge by restocking items weekly/monthly. NO JUNK FOOD IN OR AROUND THE HOUSE!!! Thanks to this challenge I have been able to bring my family closer to healthy eating.

I have enjoyed this challenge with you. I have made lifestyle changes which will serve me well. I am planning my meals, making sure I add variety, and remember to leave time for me and this cooking. Other things can not crowd out my efforts. If I don't plan and buy for the week, then I will end up eating whatever is here or handy. A couple of days of that kind of behavior and I am headed back to my old ways really fast. Have you noticed, that the trip back to bad eating habits is faster and you get there sooner than when you are following the road to successful eating. Thanks again. Joan

I have enjoyed being on this team! My long term cooking goals are to try at least one new recipe a week, limit going out to dinner to the weekends most weeks, cook a meal in the crock pot early in the week to have leftovers available, and plan the week and do grocery shopping on Sundays if possible.

Good luck to you all!

My long-term goal is to keep making healthy food regularly. Last week I ended up eating out most of my meals ... and I didn't feel good (and my bank account certainly did not appreciate it). So I'm going to keep this up!

One of my goals is to eat more fish and poultry cutting back on red meat. I make a menu plan every week and the first thing that I add are fish meals. Sometimes we eat out during the day because of the timing of running errands and getting things done. I've made big batches of different soups to help balance out our meals throughout the day - if we eat out at lunch, we have a soup supper and it's usually less calories.

My goal for me and my family is to change the traditional meals into healthy meals. We can still eat chicken nuggest but now they are baked instead of fried. I love the challenge. For Thanksgiving I made the Crustless Pumpkin Pie, it was so great.. I had my pie and ate it too!

I want to start making better use of the SparkPeople Nutrition Tracker. Not only will it help me with my menu planning, but it will help me make sure I am following a balanced diet based on my personal nutritional needs. It makes tracking protein, fats, and carbohydrates (along with various other nutrients) quick and easy.

My long-term goals are to keep planning meals for a week at a time, to try at least 3 healthy new recipes a week, and do at least two big batch recipes a week to divide into smaller portions and freeze.

This has been a great challenge for me. My long term goals are 1) To put together a set of healthy recipes. 2) To plan meals in advance at least 3 days. 3) To use my crockpot more and do more batch cooking. 4) To cook at least 3 dinners a week.

My long term goals are to cook at least 4 nights a week and to plan ahead for those meals. We usually go out with our band on Thursdays and weekends are anybody's guess as we're so involved with other things, but 4 nights is certainly doable.

I will do this challenge again and continue to plan meals out in advance although with freedom to flip things around if I want.

I'd also like to begin looking at the detail nutritional content of what we are eating. Some days the mix seems better than others - protein and veges wise. I need to focus also on ensuring I get enough protein.

My long term goals for healthy cooking start with continuing to plan my meals. I plan 1-3 days at a time. emoticon
