    Ok ladies (and the random significant other that might be playing along):

    The big challenge is balancing what you eat with the exercise you do right? So how many of us have a personal chef to make sure we don't live off of microwave dinners and Tortino's Pizza....??

    Yeah, me either.

    Check out this website All recipes ? complete resource for recipes and cooking tips. I met with a nutritionist last year and this was a resource she showed me. It's a free community where you can find and use recipies posted by other uses. Go to the section marked Healthy Cooking.

    I like this site over the others I've found for two reasons: One, it allows you to view the nutritional content of the meal (calories, fat, carbs, sodium, ect). Two, you can throw together a list of 4 or 5 meals for the week, change the portion size down to reflect how many people you're cooking for and it puts together a grocery list. You can modify the list to add different items or remove items you already have.

    Besides saving a ton of money (by not buying more than I need or getting food that doesn't get used) the quality and variety of food we eat so good!

    Some of our favorites:
    Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing (with grilled chicken added)
    Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers
    Raspberry-Glazed Rosemary Chicken
    Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

    I would love to see what meals you all are cooking so if you have an easy, light recipe to share please post it here!

      Chicken sauteed with blackbeans, taco seasoning, corn, and red peppers put on top of a a bed of lettuceand salsa, topped with lite sour cream and broken up baked tortilla chips for some crunch. A favorite of my FI and I
