  1. Hang in there BB. When everything else is out of control, remember that you can control what goes in your mouth. Knowing that you can control just that one thing can be a big help.
  2. These are all excellent ideas, and they combine well. Chicken thighs, pre skinned and boned only need to be be cut in half. Ideally you would brown the chicken in a frypan, but you can skip that if you're prepared to sacrifice some flavour to make the cooking easier. Dump them in the slow cooker with pre-cut vegetables (frozen veg tends to go a bit mushy in a slow cooker), add large tin of diced tomatoes as the base for the gravy/sauce, add a pile of dried herbs or some spices (you need to be fairly heavy handed with flavourings) when using a slow cooker), and let the cooker do it's magic
  3. If you're using the stove top, and you have a large pot with a pasta insert, but all the solids in the pasta insert. It makes removing them at the end a cinch.
  4. Congratulations on the 20lbs (mentally translates that into 9kgs, or about the weight of my touring bicycle). Keep this up and you're going to be spending a fortune on ever smaller belts.
