Ok ladies here is the links you've wanted. I use to do this all the time. Every Sunday. Be prepared it is a lot of work if you want to do it for a month, or a week. Plan on staying home that Sat or Sun, or whatever day you have. The initial expense of getting containers can be daunting for some. Suggestions, Buy aluminum foil, and baggies in bulk. You can wrap lasgna in foil (spray with cooking spray so it doesnt stick) then reheat. Or do single serving sizes in foil/or baggies and then just remove to heat in microwave! You have to do some creative thinking here for storage. But as far as recipes go there are soooo many web sites out there. Some of them are not "diet" but what is great about this kind of program is once you put these recipes in to the recipe calculator as long as you stick to your serving size you'll stay on your program!
Here some sites with recipes (no place to add a link so you'll have to copy and paste). Once you do this once or twice you'll adapt your own favorite recipes!
This one has for purchase downloadable cookbooks and newletter printable recipes. Also a lot more about the logistics of 30 day cooking
Here are some straight forward recipes
This is a once a month bulk food option. There are chicken, beef, ham "plans" For my getting smaller family this is a little much for my family and probably for those of you single/couples out there. 18 whole chickens geez! However, I add it for those of you who have large familys are who are creative enough to adapt the recipes down to your size!
This one is some truly healthy meal recipes - even though it has an icon telling you which ones are freezer friendly it doesn't give you any instructions about how to freeze or prepare after freezing. So it may be better for a more seasoned freezer meal chef!
Well, that's all the research I have time for. I need to get ready now!
