A family that cooks together stays together

One of the biggest contributors (if not the biggest) to your success for losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle is your environment.  If everyone in your household or immediate social circle is focused on healthy living, it makes it much easier for you to stick to your commitments as well.

For quite a while, my husband has been struggling to lose weight (aren't we all??!!).  I'm so proud of him, because he's lost about 15 pounds this month.  It's really helped me out quite a bit because we've been planning meals, shopping and cooking together.  It's been a long time since we've done this together and it's great to have a partner so we can keep each other in check.

I've started a recipes page here to share some of the great things we've been eating.  My husband is a good cook, but neither of us like to spend a lot of time cooking, especially on weeknights.  Our recipes are healthy, but don't taste like you are on a diet.  Most can be made ahead of time or you can make extras for leftovers the next day.  Give them a try!
