Plan Ahead - Shop for several meals at a time and plan out your week. Double or triple recipes to freeze and/or eat for another meal.

Use Shortcuts - Use prepackaged veggies and lean meats. Try out "see recipe on back" options. Try a healthy frozen stir fry mix.

Make meals you know healthier- Try baking instead of frying, using low calorie cooking spray or oil instead of butter or high fat oil. Try ground turkey instead of beef. Remember, your "easy" recipe is probably easy because you've made it a lot. New, healthier recipes will soon become easy too!
