I was just curious, since I suck at cooking, but nonetheless will still try, but it is nice to be able to throw some quick and easy frozen food into the diet if possible...I know there are actually The Zone official frozen dinners, however, my WalMart only carries two varieties, which get old fairly quick! I was curious if anyone had any suggestions on the subject! Thanks a million in advance!

Frozen veggies, frozen chicken, frozen fruit...I have come to find that, without much exception, eating well costs money and takes time.

I have a feeling that's not the answer you were looking for.

I tend to eat every vegetable raw now a days... eating well is expensive.

Carrick,

No worries man, sometimes the truth hurts! I need to just suck it up and learn how to have the patience and skills necessary to cook or at least prepare meals! Thanks for the input, I had a feeling there wasn't an easy way out!

You can eat healthy without it being complicated -- eggs and chicken are both very easy things to cook and can be made in a variety of ways. Steaming veggies is pretty easy, too!

Plus you won't get all the chemicals and sodium and things that come in frozen dinners.

I eat my eggs raw too. :-) I really think nutrition is the most important thing about crossfit. That said, it is not something one can skimp on very easily.

I agree. Luckily my wife cooks really good (so far it's been my downfall) but she is really supportive and will cook healthy if I ask...so maybe with some teamwork it won't be as bad I thought.

spend some spare time cooking a big batch of something, bag it up and put it in the freezer...
pop one in the fridge in the morning and heat up when you want it.

a bit more effort than a shop bought frozen meal, but cheaper and better.

Cooking is a required skill in today's world. Important as learning how to type in my opinion.

Eating healthy is} expensive, however, eating unhealthy is much more expensive in the long run...heart disease, diabetes, etc.
