What cheap catering ideas would you recommend?

Question by Curious George: What cheap catering ideas would you recommend?
Hi. I am looking to cater lunch to about 15 people a day for 5 days. I am in Hollywood with an ultra-low budget.

The goal is super inexpensive food that tastes good and is pretty healthy.

ANY and ALL food ideas are appreciated.
Just so yo know, for the most part, I am looking to outsource this, not cook it myself.

Great answers so far! Keep them coming :^D

A veggie tray each day…. you prepare it yourself to save money…..
Dip.. a different one each day…
Bottled water to drink or a punch… different color and flavor of punch each day

Day one….. turkey, ham and cheese trays….. condiments…. buns…..

Day two… Meat balls, sauce and Italian buns

Day Three…. Make spaghetti (use left over meat balls)
Serve garlic toasted rolls left over from first two days.

Day Four…. Cranberry Glazed Chicken Breasts (you can buy big bags of them at Wal-mart….cheap) Serve with mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables. Serve with corn bread.

Day Five…. Make a turkey dinner…. all the trimmings….

Make sure you have plenty of napkins, cups and plates.

Can you recommend a healthy eating plan for weight loss?

Question by Jane Marple: Can you recommend a healthy eating plan for weight loss?
So I’m ready. I have the treadmill, the running shoes and the mp3 filled with good beats….the only thing missing is a healthy eating plan. I called a nutritionist and she charges $ 95 per visit! What kind of non sense is that! just so she can tell me to switch my potato chips for carrots sticks!

I’m looking for a eating plan that would break down meals and snacks, list calories etc.

If you know a book like this it would be great. Thanks!

I cant remember the name but oprah was talking about a guy who just released a book about nutrition. check that out.

Another thing that it really worked for me (lost 10kgs in 2 months) only eat when ur hungry and avoid anything you wouldnt give to a baby (sodas, chips, fried food, etc) it worked for me…couldnt believe the scale.

And one more thing…everytime you crave something fattening, imagine that a greasy dirty person prepared that. Good luck!

Can someone recommend a diet/exercise plan that works for someone who works constantly?

Question by Paddy: Can someone recommend a diet/exercise plan that works for someone who works constantly?
I’d like to find a diet/exercise plan to fit my needs. I have seen a dietician, but all she said was to follow the food guide pyramid, like I have heard all my life. I need a plan to follow, but not one that has me eating expensive foods all my life.
I guess I should have added this. I stand for most of my working time. I work at 12:30am until 6am and then I come home sleep until noon and then go back from 12:30 pm to 6pm. I go to bed around 9 and get up at midnight. I don’t have time to eat 3 meals a day, let alone 5.

Eating salads is quite an easy diet if you like them. Even fast food resteraunts serve salads, and places that serve lunch to their workers often have them.

Jog/run 1-2 miles a day: time should probably take 25min max.

Drink lots of water and try experimenting with healthy snacks that taste good and are good for you. You should probably wait awhile after you eat to go and exercise.
