Eating at Home

I was reading Krys' blog post about cooking with her kids and eating out. She mentioned that she eats out only a few times a month. I mentioned that I eat out way too much. How much is too much? I would guess that we have been eating out twice a week. That is too much. We are trying to get back to a healthier lifestyle, not to mention save money for our vacation. So... I am going to start an Eating @ Home Challenge for myself. My short term goal is to eat at home every meal for 10 days. I am currently on day #5. Once I complete 10 days I want to shoot for 15 days, then 30. That means no drive thrus, pizza buffet, or Beef O'Bradys.

You can do it. We never eat out...it is way to expensive for us and when we do eat out it is a treat. We eat out maybe once every couple of months. Good luck on your challange, and you can do it!

We used to eat out 2-3x/wk. The thing about that is even if you choose something "healthy", serving sizes at restaurants are always way too big and regardless, I would eat the whole serving anyway. We eat out maybe once every 2 or 3 months now. It has saved us so much money and I have lost weight, so it's worth it!

I think I am going to start the 60 Day Not Eating Out Challenge the Monday after Father's Day.

I really like your blog.
