Good Diet Reicpes

Ok, so my husband has finally agreed to go on a cruise. (yeah me. it only took 5 years) Anyways, we aren't going until next year, but we both have quite a bit of weight to lose. I have already lost 70 lbs, but I still have about 25 to go. He has closer to 100lbs to lose. My question is, does anyone have any good recipes that are very healthy, easy to make, and don't cost a fourntune to make. Also if anyone has any toning exercises that they would like to pass on, i would really appreciate it.
