If you are tired of spending all of your money eating out, throwing away food that ends up going bad because you didn't get to it fast enough, and not eating as healthy as you know you need to be, then it's time to join the Eat Out at Home Challenge.
What is the Eat Out at Home Challenge?
Eat Out at Home is a FREE 14-Day guided challenge of no eating out, no drive thru's and no delivery, to help you get in the habit (or back in the habit) of cooking at home, consistently.
How Does the Challenge Work?
For 14 days, you and I will #EatOutAtHome. What does that mean, you ask? Simple.
Everyday from May 1st to May 14th, we will only eat what we cook. No going out to restaurants, drive throughs, no prepared foods from your local health food store, not even a frozen dinner. You and I, in the kitchen, cooking it up!
I’m talking Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks. That’s it.
Each Day of the challenge, you will receive an EMAIL from me with a USEFUL TIP, helping you to eat out at home and how to make it realistic and easier. The goal is to form the habit of cooking at home. Going out for a meal becomes the exception, not the rule.
Throughout the challenge you will also be receiving some COOKING VIDEOS so that you can stay motivated and get your creative juices flowing. In those videos you will also learn some cooking tips to help you move around the kitchen a lot faster and make cooking less of a chore.
You will also receive 10 PRINTABLE RECIPES to add to your collection so that when you are in a recipe rut, or you are out of inspiration, you have something new to try. #ChewWithYourMindOpen
Throughout the challenge I will also be hosting a few LIVE COOKING WORKSHOPS, Q&A's and some pop up live streams. Make sure you stay tuned!
You will also become a part of the #EatOutAtHome family inside our PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP. That's where I will be going live and sharing daily tips. You will also get a chance to chat it up with your fellow challenge members, exchange tips, recipe ideas and just lay back, kick it, and enjoy the ride. (see what I did there? LOL)

WHO IS YOUR CHALLENGE HOST?
Hi! I’m Evelyn from ChefEvelyn.com where I teach people at every level how to improve their cooking skills, grow their taste and #EatOutAtHome with ease. I started cooking when I was six years old, but I didn’t become a professional chef until years after working as a Chemical & Environmental Engineer. (But that’s a story for another day)
I’ve been teaching people to cook for almost seven years and I have taught over 3,400 students.
I loved my life as a chef, but I had one small problem, I rarely cooked for myself. The workers at Chik-fil-A literally knew me by name. #SHAME After being diagnosed with Cancer in 2016, I knew I had to get my diet under control and the only way to do that was by cooking at home. So I created this challenge to help busy professionals create realistic, stress-free plans to help them eat healthier and cooking at home. I wanted them to know that cooking at home doesn’t have to feel like another item on an already long “to-do” list.

HOLD UP. WAIT A MINUTE.
This is the part where we give a "SLOW CLAP" and a "SIDE EYE" to some of the random thoughts that just might have run through your head.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I need to eat healthy and cook at home more, but I'm just soooooo busy. I've got a lot going on. I don't even know if I will have time to do this challenge."
If you can finish one the following statements, I guarantee that you have more time than you think you do.
- Cash me Outside,___________?
- I've got green, beans, potatoes,_________.
- Game of ______________.
- Olivia ____________.
If you answered: 1. How bout dat 2. Tomatoes 3. Droptops 4. Thrones 5. Pope You have PLENTY of time. #YouTriedIt
Plus inside the challenge I'm going to show you how to plan, shop and cook QUICKLY!
"I can't afford to do this challenge and eating healthy is crazy expensive."
I'm going to need some receipts on this one. The Challenge is FREE and I'm literally going to need some receipts about healthy food being expensive. I've got questions. Lots of questions. As a matter of fact, I have ALL THE QUESTIONS. I shop for one person and spend about $45/week on all natural/organic/grass fed/free range/hormone free food.
Plus, if you are spending too much, I'll show you how to trim it down in the challenge. I got you!
"I mean, the only reason why I eat out is because I hate to cook."
In all the years that I have been teaching people how to cook, there are only a few reasons why people don't like cooking.
- The don't know how.
- They don't have the right tools for the job, so it becomes labor intensive and takes forever.
- They run out of ideas, get bored eating the same things over and over again and are tired of searching for recipes.
- They have convinced themselves that cooking for one or two people just isn't worth it.
All of these can be remedied, and quickly. That's why I'm here to show you the way.
