Wow.
Thank you all for the wonderful responses!

And, you all are absolutely right. It is highly imperative to eat healthy. I just want to point out that I am very frugal with my money...it goes a long way. I never eat out. Only if I get invited somewhere. And, I live a complete modest life. I only buy necessities. How do I splurge and have fun? By taking my girls to a matinee like twice a year. Or, hooking up with some friends for a playdate.

So, I still find it very hard to buy healthy. For all the fruits and vegetables I buy...I have to buy it again, and again....I'm literally spending over $200 a week on food! It used to be $100 when I ate nothing but junk.

My husband the tough one with this. I send him out shopping, and then he "adds" to the list. What does he add?

Frozen Pizza
JAX
Chips
Ice Cream
CheezIts
hotdogs

and then, what do my children beg for? All of the above. They pass on the apple, clementine, or pear for the JAX!!!!!!!! AARGH!

It is a necessity. And, I want to at the very least, introduce these healthy foods to my girls so when they grow, they are familiar with the tastes.

I'll keep on doing what I'm doing.

A recipe thread sounds great!

If I have spare broccoli, or an extra carrot..........where should it go?
I made the cheapest meal today - lentil burgers!!!
Total cost: about $3 for about 6-8, healthy, delicious burgers!

I cooked 1 cup of lentils and another pan i sauteed onions, garlic, celery, chipolte pepper and carrot for 10 mins until soft and translucent. Added a tsp of cumin and coriander, and a tbs of lemon juice and 2 tbs of soy sauce. Put in processor to chop a little finer and mixed the lot and made patties - adding dusting of flour - and cooked them in a little oil!!! Served on bed of baby spinch and cut up a few tomatoes to top it off. Delicious AND nutritious!!! And AMAZINGLY filling!!
