Online resources can be a fun place to start, especially if you can't afford a cookbook.

TasteSpotting aggregates recipes from different users and websites. And the neat little thumbnails can help you figure out what exactly you want for dinner.

The Food Network's website has lots of pictures and, more importantly, videos. They even have full episodes.

FoodBlogs will direct you to what you need to get inspired.

Eating on the cheap is easy: All you need is creativity.

First, figure out what you want to eat and what your body needs. Then, go shopping. Get inspired by some cool people, and make sure you know why it's so important.

Then just put it together.

Even if you are, like my bestie always says, "Lazy, crazy and exhausted," eating well isn't too hard.
