I had been frustrated with struggling to lose some weight. I was walking with my neighbors, who are also equally passionate about food, and trying to come up with a plan, a program that we could do ourselves to help each other reach our weight-loss and exercise goals. My neighbor, Judy, had a bunch of back issues of EatingWell magazine. And the great thing about it is, all the recipes were already analyzed for us; we knew how many calories per portion. And then dividing up those dishes between three of us, so we would end up cooking only once or twice a week for each other. The other nights, we were delivered homemade, delicious meals. We ended up doing it for almost a year. We were really enjoying it, and were able to try lots of new recipes, things that we maybe would've never tried before.
