Hi, Samiioreally, and welcome! I encourage you to use our shopping guide for some direction – http://www.trimdownclub.com/where-to-buy-uk. As for cooking, there are some tips in our main Program Guide (see in the “Downloads” area, link at the top right of each site page). You can also simplify by choosing recipes with “classic,” “basic,” and “simple” in the name. If you want to select foods with which you are more comfortable in general, you can try the personal version of the Menu Planner application (the right-most option here – http://www.trimdownclub.com/menu-planner). Cheers.
