My best tip is just not to buy what you don't want to eat - no ready-made food like frozen meals, no junk food like crisps or chocolate. No coke or juice. Always keep a bottle of cold water in the fridge for when you're thirsty. Always have plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially the frozen kind - they keep for longer and you can add them as is to whatever you're cooking without need to chop anything. I don't buy bread - I make a big batch once a week on the weekend, when I have time. That way I don't eat too much bread and I also know what I eat - store-bought bread is full of awful stuff. Don't buy anything that has ingredients listed and you don't know what they are (all the E-something and so on). Try to get used to drinking coffee and tea without sugar. DON'T buy any of the diet stuff - it's poison and also you're cheating your body into thinking it's getting something but it knows it doesn't and then you just end up eating more. Try to cook ahead - for example make a big pot of brown rice that'll last a few days and then you only have to mix the toppings. It saves time and also means that you have healthy alternatives ready if your really want to eat something in a hurry.
So yeah, these are my tips.

Spent 4 days in the kitchen canning so far, got another day scheduled tomorrow. Quince preserves, green tomato chutney, and possibly apple sauce. Done quite a bit of dehydrating too, lots of dried food in jars in my cupboards! I scored over 5 dozen jars at the thrift store the other day, no rings but still a pretty good deal. I can't believe how many jars we've gone through already! It's astonishing, really really a LOT.
Anybody ever use a pressure canner? We've been doing hot water baths with high-acid foods so far but I'd really like to do some low-acid foods too, no vinegar or lemon. I'm going to look for a pressure canner online, I need some advice about what sort to buy though... too many to choose from!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
