I wish...

I wish that every day when I woke up in the morning and check my email there would be a meal plan for the day sitting there in my inbox. Ideally, I would open that email and gasp at the wonderful things I would get to eat that day, all the while staying within a certain calorie range, let's say 1200 - 1400 calories per day.

This website would also use normal, every day ingredients, not fruits and vegtables that need to be flown in from all corners of the earth. Just typical, every day stuff that I can find at my grocery store.

This would also help end the age old dreaded question of "what's for dinner" because some brilliant little website will have already answered it for me. I could just look at my husband and say "looks like grilled salmon, lemon pepper cous cous and steamed cauliflower tonight sweetheart" instead of my typical (while rolling my eyes and audibly gasping) "oh I don't care, just whatever you feel like, wanna get pizza?".

(surely with all of the crap floating around on the internet and all of the millions of websites out there something like this exists and I am just too foolish to find it via my google search?)

sparkpeople? I find it easier not to use their meal plans, but they do have meal plans and you can print a shopping list for the week. You can also go in and substitute other foods for things you don't have/like.

And it's free.

I wish that someone would *make* (and clean up after) those meals too;)

Yeah, spark people has decent pre-made plans, I think.

It takes just as much energy to eat badly as it does to eat healthy. It's just a matter of habit.

Thanks for the suggestions. Savingdinner.com seems to be exactly what I meant. I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay for it, just yet at least!

I tried spark people in the past but their website was a bit congested and overwhelming for me. I could never find the foods that were exactly (or even near sometimes) what my package was saying. I guess it's because it's US site vs. living in Holland.

And yes, Erin, somebody to make and clean up would be perfect!

Madame, I'm buying what you are selling! It takes no more effort to cook a healthy meal than it does an unhealthy one, it's the planning within a certain calorie range every day that I'm really at odds with.

I wish there were Seattle Sutton in Europe. They don't clean up, but they do make it!
