Cooking will be a part of a healthy lifestyle unless you just want to eat salads. Make cooking fun. Cook smart and make meals that will have leftovers so you cook every other day. Think of crockpot meals. Think of all in one casserole dishes. You might have to plan a little so you will have an idea of what's in the fridge to eat. Use you microwave!

Every day is a GIFT!

Another good recipe site is fattoskinny.com. These recipes are posted by people, most are easy to make.

You can, obviously, feel free to eat the yolks, and yes they are healthy.

Why do you say only egg white in the omelet? In fact, all the nutritionists and dietitians still say only the egg white even though all the recent testings say that the yolk is good, not a cause of high fat in a person, and that it has most all the nutrients. I am just curious why everyone keeps saying that people should eat the white only. When I am doing low carb I eat the entire egg and it doesn't raise my cholesterol any. In fact, it has gone down.

Brkfst: could be a protein like cottage cheese (maybe 1/2 cup), some berries, an egg white omelet w/veggies, oatmeal. Really depends on your calorie range and what you like. But make sure you measure so your portions are proper. I definitely have to have a protein @ breakfast.

Snack: could be an appropriate portion of pistachios, walnuts or the like.

Lunch: could be a protein like tuna fish, chicken, a veggie or green, but I avoid sandwiches.

Snack: small apple w/peanut butter

Supper: Spinach salad, protein source (chicken? fish at least 2 times/week, beef occasionally, pork -- all in appropriate portions -- I never have more than 1-2 oz. of meat), veggies (onions, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower), beans (appropriate portion).

Those are some ideas. Most important to check your blood sugar to see what foods keep your blood sugar stable.

Good luck! I suggest a book like the South Beach Diet recipe book, which has lots of good recipes.

I happen to eat low carb, and if you google low carb you'll get lots of recipe ideas.

The other big thing I do is menu plan for a week. That takes the panic mode out of figuring out what to have daily. It's planned.

I need suggestions for where to go to find simple meal plans (with recipes included) for breakfast, lunch and dinner for Type 2 diabetes.

I've looked at the ADA, and emeals, and Diet.com (there's a charge for that one) and of course I've looked here at SparkPeople, too, but none of the meal plans and recipes fit my family.

I've even been to a dietician, but she just told me, "eat a protein and a bread and a fruit for breakfast; eat a salad for lunch, etc., etc. I need much more direction than that. I need to be told exactly what to eat and how to fix it and it has to be simple.

I really, really want my husband and I both to lose the weight, but it has to be simple and something we will eat. I'm not a very good cook and I don't enjoy cooking. We've relied on fast food too much.

Does anyone have any suggestions other than the ones I've mentioned above?

Thanks very much for any advice,

Miller
