I am going to pre-plan a whole lot more. This saves me the issue of going out at the last minute. I enjoy going out but now I think it should be more of a treat than simply meal replacements that allow me to go over my planned calories for the day. Once in a while is okay but I need to keep my goals at the forefront.

My long term cooking goals are to continue cooking using low to no salt. Also to continue to cook low cholestrol and to use greek yogurt instead of sour cream when possible. Also to continue to make soups and stews and salsas in large batches so I can freeze them also make beans to freeze so we can have beans and rice as a dinner. I also find that it is helpful to keep a sheet of paper on the kitchen counter or refrigerator so as when I run out of things I can write it down immediately since I have a bad memory as I grow older. :)

Long term goals for me are to plan meals, keep a well stocked pantry for quick and easy meals using less processed refined ingredients.
More fresh vegetables

More will follow but this is the first day of week four and I am still processing this! emoticon emoticon

Since joining this challenge I learned so much about making healthy choices and sticking to the lifestyle that has so many benefits. I have been cooking at least 2 or 3 times a week with healthier versions of old favorites. I plan to try the turkey burger sometime this week and have to find a recipe for it. No problem here, though, there's no shortage of good health conscious recipes at this website. I am staying motivated because I know I don't like the old me that I see in the mirror and I want to look better and be healthier now more than ever. Week 4 is in process now and the things I have learned will carry on thru. Reda

I've been adding new low-fat, low-carb grains to our diet. I've tried quinoa (I make it with low-fat chicken broth instead of water, and we LOVE it. Rice never tasted that good. Nice nutty flavor.) and barley, and want to try amaranth some time soon. I want to keep our diet healthy, low-fat, low-carb and delicious. When I told DH that I was putting us on a diet, he says, he thought, "Oh, no!. Nothing will taste good." Now he says that our food is better than ever, and he loves eating well.

My long term cooking goals are to include a lot more fruits and vegetables in my families meals. Breakfast and lunch are not a problem but it's dinner that usually ends up being fast food because I'm too tired to cook. But I'm spending more time on meal planning and making sure it's healthy for all of us.

My long-term goal is to reduce mindless second helpings to zero, and to cook more with different grains and flours - so far, we've enjoyed all the new combinations, so why not keep it up!

What I love best about the challenge is creating healthier versions of my recipes. I plan to continue cooking that way. It prevents that diet thinking that I want to eliminate. Also, I like adding new recipes.

One of my New Year's resolutions was to make at least three meals at home per week. So far I have been doing this and I am really learning to enjoy cooking! I also like trying no meals on SparkRecipes.com. So my long term cooking goals is to keep on track with trying new recipes and making meals at home, the only possible road block that could sabotage me would be if we don't go grocery shopping one week. This typically causes us to go out more. So grocery shop on time, make a list, and try new recipes!

My long term goals are to keep trying new healthy foods, especially different vegetables and whole grains. I've been trying to get one new kind of vegetable each week and figure out a healthy way to cook it, and I want to keep that up.

I have been using much less processed/prepared food and I really want to keep that up. I make lunch and dinner 5 days a week for my family, and I'd like for at least 80% of that to be whole foods.

As we move into warmer weather, I want to try some new smoothie and salad recipes.

I also want to find a YUMMY, healthier recipe for baked mac&cheese. I've tried many, but they either aren't healthy enough for me to cook/eat on a semi-regular basis or don't pass the taste test for my family. I'll keep looking :)

It has taken me months instead of weeks to complete this challenge. I allow myself to get sidetracked by other things constantly. This is what happens with preparing healthy meals. I get sidetracked, don't plan and eat out instead. My long term goal is to (1) use the information that I have learned in this challenge to plan, shop and prepare my food, (2) restrict eating out to a maximum of 4 times per month, (3) stop feeling like a martyr because I am not consuming junk foods.

Long Term Cooking/Eating Goals:

I want to continue to make better choices while being able to eat all of the delicious things I want. Knowing what I can substitute for the "bad things" makes it easier to eat healthy & still enjoy what I have made.

I need to remember that even though the smorgusboard of food is available, it does not give me an open invitation to gorge myself, no matter how delicious!, to the point where I cannot breathe.

My major long term cooking goal, is to learn at least 100 new healthy recipes, to be able to setup and revolve a healthy and nutritious meal plan for the Hubby and myself.

Another long term cooking goal, is to learn to eat at home at least 29 days outta the month!!!

My major goal is to check nutrition values of restaurants before going out to eat. I blew out almost a whole day's worth of calories on one meal.
My second goal is to make sure I leave wiggle room in my menu plans for emergencies and plan changes.

1. Eat out less often. This is a big one for me because my hubby and I like to eat out every weekend. I will reduce that to once every two weeks.
2. Include more fiber in my diet.
3. Prepare more meatless meals.
4. Include the right number of fruits and veggies to my diet EVERY day.
5. Continue to track my nutrition daily.

My long term plans are very similar to the majority of the challenge participants. Many of the challenge items are like second nature to me but they were not always so. I have picked up many good ideas to try in this challenge from reading suggestions and as always am thankful for the wonderful communities and ideas Spark brings together! :) I am getting away from artificial more and more and find I feel so much better. We do meatless Mondays, have fish once a week, always have at LEAST one new recipe a week but we bore easily and there are so many recipes that we seldom have a recipe repeat in a rotation unless we LOVE it so we are always experimenting. Finding and researching new recipes is a hobby of mine. Eating out less continues to be something we work on. I love to eat out but it is so expensive and really so unhealthy in most cases that it's better for us as a family if I prepare it at home and then it's like a celebration. I do full multi course meals which become celebrations and lessons about the cultures we are cooking.

Bon appetit!!!

I really feel your goals!
I was raised in the "clean plate club," and I have a really hard time NOT eating everything on my plate, even when I am miserably full.
For me, I need to eat more protein with too many additional calories, so I am going to find and regularly cook more lean meat recipes.

It was really helpful to read everyone's goals...I came across a couple of things I hadn't considered!

My long-term healthy cooking plans are:
1. Plan a weekly grocery list and flexible meal plans for every day;
2. Pack a lunch at least 3 times a week;
3. Try at least one new healthy recipe every week;
4. Try to eat seasonally throughout the summer and fall; and
5. Eat purposefully and savor my food!

I've gone one step further. I started buying my meat at Costco and packaging it into meals. I still shop once a week for staples but I plan on correcting some of that. I feed seven people. I find that buying the meat like that I plan better menus. It forces me to keep within what I have on hand. I run on a 2 meals beef, 2 meals chicken, 2 meals pork & one meal Italian (Pizza or casserole.

I've greatly enjoyed this challenge. I've been sticking to the Spark Plan. Cooking much healther meals for my DH, my M-I-L and myself. It has made a great change in our house hold. My DH has lost 8 pounds and I've lost 12.

My long-term cooking goals are:

1) Keep the pantry and refrigerator in order.
2) Make weekly meal plans. ( Of all my goals, this will be the bigest challenge. I can do this.)
3) Make grocery list using the meal plan. (Lots of fresh fruit & vegies and whole grains.)
4) Cook more meals at home ( 2 crockpot meals a week. Who knew??)
5) Continue using the nutrition tracker ( I love this and use it every day.)
6) Use the internet to help me make healthier choices when dining out.
7) Continue to search for new and healthy recipes.

I've always enjoyed trying new recipes but now there is a greater emphasis on "healthy"! Going forward after the challenge ends I plan to continue trying a new recipe at least once a week and I really want to use more healthy grains and legumes. I'm so pleased that my husband has also enjoyed trying new foods with me. I also plan to continueing logging my meals; I really need to SEE that I hit my goals on calories, carbs, proteins, etc. in order to stay balanced. I've learned to save time and money with good shopping lists and I will keep making lists as well as shop only when I'm not hungry. That is difficult since I feel like I'm ALWAYS hungry.

this challenge has been great! all the new recipes! i really have enjoyed trying new, healthy recipes, so i think i will continue to try out new healthy recipes regularly. i like learning about how to use all sorts of different good-for-you ingredients, like strange veggies, grains, etc. i have found food blogs online to be great resources for tried and true and innovative recipes, like 'La Tartine Gourmand'- great blog! I also want to continue learning when and where and how to make good healthy substitutions, like when a little bit of butter is best, but when also i would do better with olive oil, or even apple sauce :) finally, i want to think more strategically about how to keep my fresh things, well, fresh. i find i eat better when there are loads of delectable fresh items, spices, but they spoil so easily! so learning how to keep fresh things fresh is my last and final goal. thanks healthy cooking challenge!
