jsx730 Posted January 31, 2007 Share Posted January 31, 2007 I have a question for all you health nuts out there, especially the busy ones on a budget. How can my girlfriend and I eat healthy, without spending alot of money, and without sepnding alot of time cooking/preparing food ourself? We both work full time, have long work commutes, and take 2 college courses at a time. We're on a somewhat limited budget, and have hardly any spare time. On top of that, we visit our parents out of town every Wednesday, so we either need to eat out or eat whatever our parents cook (my parents dont cook anything healthy, hers usualy do). Tuesday/Thursday we don't get home from work/school until 8:30 or so. By this time we're so hungry we dont have time to spend cooking a meal. She usually prepares a big pot of soup on sunday (chicken noodle, Portugese Kale, Chili, or Beef Soup). On Friday's we're back out of town (straight from work) to hang out with friends, and again get stuck eating out. We fit in excercise when we can. DDR during the winter, she has a cardio machine she uses sometimes, during the summer we run. Usually only 1-2 times a week though. We generally have time on the weekends where we could prepare food ahead of time for the week. Any ideas? We're both gainin more weight then we'd like to, and we know alot of it is diet related. Thanks for your help! Quote Link to comment
