...larger-than-necessary restaurant portions...
I find it satisfying to prepare my own meal, sit down, and enjoy it. I know what I'm eating and I feel better afterwards. Do this for 30 days and you find that you actually save money and eat better.
Eat-in for 30 days.
Get to the grocery store and by some ingredients. Stay away from the freezer section. Become one with the produce Dept. You do not need to be a master chef. 50% of my food intake is salads and steamed veggies. Other than that, I eat all kinds of stuff that I prepare relatively quickly using fresh foods and ingredients; sandwiches, tortilla pizzas, cereals with fruit and yogurt, on and on....
I still like to eat out at least once a week. Sometimes not even for the quality/taste of food but not to have to clean up afterwards.
I still eat out. I occasionally have trouble finding something acceptable on many menus. I also have a much greater appreciation for just staying home and eating in.
Everything in moderation is my mindset.
I've eaten many bizarre foods and love my veggies, but I don't think I could last more then a week on only veggies Lately i've been exercising too much and eating not enough I think. I'm getting lighter and lighter each week. It needs to stop! I would like a big portion right now actually to be honest. Cafe Picassa in somerville tonight! whoot whoot!
30 Days of Cloth Diapering: the initial outlay of expenses might make this one impractical, but I want to see if I can do it.
the way my kid sh*ts, i will gladly stick with disposables. Also, take into consideration that extra water, electricity and detergent for the cloth diapers. While I am sure you still come out ahead with cloth diapers, unless you wash the diapers in a bucket, you are really only saving the landfills.
