  • Easy Go-To Meals Your Whole Family Will Love

    Posted September 4th, 2020 by

    I think I can confidently say that in 2020, we all want one thing: easy go-to meals. Stress can induce overeating, and I for one have been eating my feelings a little too much lately. I mean, it was just March and now it’s almost time to put out Halloween decorations—how?!

    But I digress. Like I was saying, we all want easy go-to meals to ensure we’re not eating a bunch of junk food or incessantly snacking. Luckily for all of us, the Cooking Light Diet exists. And it is loaded with those types of recipes. At least, that’s what our Facebook Community thinks. Members there have been sharing favorite recipes, inspiring one another, and helping each other navigate 2020 through their shared love of healthy and delicious food.

    Below, we’ve compiled some of our favorite posts from that Community. Whether sharing easy go-to meals, recommitting to eating better, or contemplating leaving your husband over a chicken recipe, this is what Cooking Light Diet members have been talking about lately. For more posts, make sure and join our Facebook Community. And for easy go-to meals that will save you time, money, and hassle, subscribe to the Cooking Light Diet at the link at the bottom of this page.

    Happy eating!

    Community-sourced kitchen help!

    Our Facebook Community is not only a source of inspiration and motivation, but also great at troubleshooting. Ashley Belbeck wondered what the best way to prepare a recipe was, so she sourced the group.

    Using the information provided by other members, Belbeck said the cod was “really good” and “very elegant.” People helping people! It’s a beautiful thing.

    Community-recommended meals! 

    Sometimes the best ideas are inspired by other people. Cooking Light Diet superstar Cyndie Moran (read more about Cyndie’s success here) read one of the articles we posted in the Community and used it to schedule a mouthwateringly delicious-looking breakfast into her meal plan. Bravo on the food styling, Cyndie!

    And Donna West was inspired by another member’s dinner pics to explore a new recipe that she ended up enjoying immensely. We love it when this happens!

    Recommitting to healthy eating.

    2020 has been a tough year for healthy eating. Stress eating is a thing, you guys. But recently Patricia Lawrence decided to recommit to her Cooking Light Diet subscription and, judging by her shared reaction with her husband, she’s off to a great restart.

    And then there was Sue Given, another Cooking Light Diet superstar who, despite an incredible amount of adversity, has recommitted to her meal plans, too. You got this Sue! (To read about Sue’s inspirational success, click here.) 

    Meals that’ll make you reconsider your relationship.

    Liz Striegl and her husband, Nate, love Cooking Light Diet recipes (click here to read about their success), but Liz loves our Extra-Crispy Chicken Thighs recipe so much she might just leave Nate and elope with it.

    There’s more than one way to bake a muffin.

    It is common knowledge amongst CLD members that our Blueberry-Sour Cream Muffin recipe is the best muffin recipe known to man. So whether you’re a little short on blueberries like Patricia Lawrence…

    …or you want to mix it up like Kirsti Shaw did, we guarantee this is one breakfast you’ll want to eat again and again.

    Recipes worth repeating.

    Not everyone likes to eat the same recipe over and over. But Sue Given might argue that’s because not everyone is subscribed to the Cooking Light Diet yet.

    First time favorite recipes!

    Making a recipe for the first time can be risky: Will it be too time-consuming? What if it tastes bad? Well, Joyce Van Huis tried a new Cooking Light Diet recipe not once…

    …but twice, and the results were overwhelmingly positive. So happy to hear it, Joyce!

    One month later, the results are in…

    When last we heard from Colleen Margaret Tippie, she was one week into restarting her Cooking Light Diet subscription. After a month, she let the Community know how it was going. The results? Well, they speak for themselves…

    Meals the whole family will love.

    Whether you’re looking for a delicious recipe to feed your spouse and kids (like Michele Handal-Werner)…

    …or you’re looking for delicious recipes to feed your college-aged athletes like Sheila Keyes, the Cooking Light Diet has meals everyone will love!

    Soup in a can? Never again!

    Lori Dominick prepared a soup recipe so good she’s sworn off the canned stuff forever! To learn more about her Cooking Light Diet journey, click here.

    Lastly, we’ll just remind you that you can lose or maintain weight (or just save lots of time) eating delicious recipes like chicken and waffles. No matter how busy your day—and it sounds like Pamela Jane Thornton’s was busy indeed—we’ve got delicious meals you’ll love!
