There is a book called Shopper's Guide to Healthy Living. It has recipes for how to make regular recipes into healthy recipes. It also has many of its own healthy recipes and contains money saving tips on how to shop and eat healthier. There are tear-out shopping lists and easy explanations on why to eliminate poisons.

YOu could try out sparkpeople.com, I have been on the site for about 4 months and I have lost almost 20 pounds. It is a great site for more than just recipes.

I ran across this website when I was doing LA weight loss, dont let the name scare you away. I have found a few recipes that were really good and my husband enjoyed. My girls are to picky to eat what we are eating half the time. Good luck to you and your mother in law. I know how hard it is to get started.

www.kraftfoods.com I love this website and you can sign up for a free magazine that comes a few times a year with tons of recipes. Most items in the recipes are kraft brand but you can substitute for a generic brand. The recipes are simple and most ingredients are things you would carry in your kitchen anyway. I think most of them are fairly healthy but you can alter them to make them healthier.
I hope you love it like I do. It helps me get out of the taco, spaghetti rut.

Since it is now summer....a quick way to eat cheap and healthy is to buy large packs of meats (chicken, pork, and beef) and divide them up into meals. You can do quick marinades with a little bit of olive oil and flavored vinegars.
Then the key is to BBQ! All the fat drips off the meat and you have a very clean, healthy main dish. Then for side dishes lose the starchy items and introduce vegetables that you can cook on the grill or steam in the house.
This is a quick and easy way to eat healthier without all the mess in your kitchen.

My friend, Jane Colby, is a natural health consultant.
Go to http://realpeople-realhealth.com
Also, Sunset Magazine has a website with recipes. You can search healthy recipes, too.
Groceries are really expensive these days, so it's tough.
Do you have a deep freeze? Generally speaking --- I recommend buying stuff when it's on sale and freezing it. For example --- meat and frozen fruits or vegies or bread. If you get canned goods make sure it's low or no sodium and that there isn't any kind of syrup in it. Actually, that's a good rule for any kind of prepackaged food. Get whole grain products and avoid white flour products. Try to avoid products that have sugar in it. Limit or eliminate pop, chips, crackers, sweets. I'm on a low sodium/low carb diet for health reasons. I let myself cheat on the weekends as a reward for being good during the week. And don't forget to exercise. Good luck. Good for you!

I've gotten some pretty good ideas off of Urban Homemaker's website. Marilyn Mohl operates the Urban Homemaker and she is very much into healthy eating/healthy lifestyles. God Bless!
