Personally, I would recomend starting one step at a time rather than jumping straight into an extreme health diet, extreme changes often don't last
Personally, what I started doing is to go online and find a quick and easy weeknight recipe, these are usually pretty inexpensive and take around 45
minutes to make.
A new favorite of mine is: www.epicurious.com...
I didn't want to add this as it sounds like some sort of plug, however, I feel it is a good example of the quick and easy yet healthy recipes you can
make at home.
I always feel 10x better after eating one of these meals as well, as apposed to pastaroni or some other quick prepare meal.
It should be pretty easy to take a multi person recipe down to a one person recipe if you want to, but what I do for the sake of simplicity is keep
the recipe for multiple people and that way I have enough for the next few days or so as leftovers. Personally, for me, it tastes and feels just as
great on the third day eating it as the first day.
To switch it up, I choose my most important meal to have these more indepth recipes for, which for me is dinner, and then for breakfast I may have a
toasted bagel with cream cheese, and for lunch I may still prepare a box of macoroni or hamburger helper, or have some of the dinner left overs.
I do get fast food on occasion also, but only maybe once or twice every two months, just because I like a nice artificial, fattening burger every once
and a while.
I find that this is a quick, easy, empowering, and cheap way to eat.
