I am new to sparks, so if I may let me answer your question and introduce myself. I'm a 63 year old widower in Tucson. Have been with TOPS for 4 years and dropped my first hundred pounds and have 70 to go. For the last year I have not lost any weight and I am trying this.
Part of my problem is I like to eat, I like all the good foods but all the bad ones too :)
I have five kids and cooking for a mob is different then cooking for one or two. To save time and make it easer to do the right thing I prep in advance, i.e. dice three bell peppers and store them in a Ziploc
so just put per diced red bell peppers, onions, a little broth ( this fries like fat with out the cals) added one egg and the whites of two more. My cats get the extra yokes they need the fat more then I do. To finish it off some fat free shredded cheese. 236 calories. I ate it with cantaloupe chunks that came from another Ziploc
With my full Ziploc's I can do a stir fry in minutes, Or load the steamer. You could Microwave it too but I just use mine to heat coffee and soup or dry clay
If you are just looking for a quick snack load the plate with fruit or vegetables, all cut and ready to go. add a few crackers with turkey. Nothing wrong with crackers as long as you do not eat fifty of them
