I'm a stay at home mom cooking for 2 adults and a toddler mostly. I love my crockpot, so most of my recipes are slow cooked or grilled. Last night I made greek chicken in the crockpot. (chicken, lemon pepper, allspice, oregano, onion and garlic-shred it all and add 1 greek yogurt before serving). Our dinners always make enough leftovers for me to have it for lunch at home later in the week.
We also have a CORN (clean out refrigerator night) on a busier night of the week, so it gives me a day off cooking and eliminates leftovers.

I made the Lemon Herb chicken in the SparkPeople cookbook, and some of the ways I used the leftovers were:
- made healthy chicken burritos on a whole wheat tortilla, lettcus, tomato, a little nonfat sour cream, low fat cheddar cheese, and the chicken, of course.
-I also sautéed the leftover chicken with non-stick spray, a few onions slices, and chicken stock. I put it on some brown rice with mixed veggies, and it was delicious!

when we have leftovers, they are almost always used as lunch the next day, either by my husband or myself, or in same cases both of us.

Im single i use frozen or fresh veggys so i steam as much as im gonna eT for that meal. If i fix tofu same an naturally with a grain. But when i make dried beans or soups. I always make extra to freeze for thoughs days i need a quick meal. Plus there usially good in freezer for up to 6 months. If i make hummus its enough for a few meals an or snacks. So with hummuse more is always made. Of course iv got plenty room in my freezer. It has dried beans iv cooked to freeze, tofu an frozen veggys plus left over home made soups.

I am usually cooking for one so I rarely have "left overs", its just a general revolving door of veggies. When I do have something that I can use later I use it right away and in a different way than I did initially...

The half green peper that I didn't use in stir fry now becomes the green peper that I use in my omlett the next morning.


Makin it happen!!

I combine leftovers so they are served differently than they were at the original meal. Leftover pepper soup becomes sauce for the mild white fish.

The leftover brown rice is combined with another meal's leftover meat to make a quick heating stew for someone's lunch.

My husband and I have recently switched roles when my temporary job ended. I am the stay-at-home mom for the moment. I was raised with my mom staying home, so I learned quite a bit of making the most out of food from her. My hubby has been amazed that I have been experimenting with turning leftovers into soups and casseroles. My crockpot has also become one of my favorite gadgets.

Salads, rice and pasta dishes can be eaten cold the next day.

Meat left overs I will use in other meals. Often with tomatoes and added vegetables.

My children will eat fruit crumble for breakfast!

I do what I can to minimize leftovers, but I almost always wind up with little chunks of veggies left over...

So, I figured out a way to use them!
I make what Martha Stewart would call a 'relish', and put it over grilled chicken.

Dice whatever veggies you are using (I've used tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, zucchini, onion...), and toss them in a bowl with some white vinegar, salt, pepper, and basil.
I marinade the chicken in white vinegar, salt, pepper, and basil (a little lemon is good, too--juice and zest), then grill it and top with the relish.

It's delicious, and great with brown rice, wild rice, or even a quinoa salad.
Enjoy, guys!

I try to reduce leftovers and plan my meals so that I can build on the leftovers I have.

I am usually cooking for one, so I plan to reduce leftovers by reducing recipies to at least half most of the time. Fresh ingredients give you even more flexibility in the size of the recipe.

I tend I also go ahead and cut up a whole onion or pepper and either refrigerate or freeze the extra for quick and easy use in another recipe. Canned and boxed items can often be split and saved for later also. I would much rather have base ingredient leftovers than a ton of a finished product that I have to eat over and over.

I try to plan meals that build upon the leftover ingredients I have so I can make another smaller quantity recipe with the ingredients I have left over.

Finally, if you have leftovers consider taking them for lunch that week so you can save money on going out or have delicious home cooked meals at work!

I have a container in my freezer that I now call "soup starter". Any time we have little bits of leftovers that aren't really big enough to save for another meal, I put them in my "soup starter". I put all kinds of veggies, casseroles, meat, spaghetti sauce, most anything. Then when the containers get full, I add some fresh veggies, cabbage, onion, celery, etc and spices and we have homemade veggie soup. It's never the same twice, but it's always good!

Today I took leftover chicken and shredded it and mixed it with salsa and plain greek yogurt, and put it on top of a baked potato for dinner. Heated it all up with a little low fat cheese melted on top. emoticon

All the tips and ideas sound fantastic. Thanks. I'll take leftover brown rice and chicken and vegetables and mix in together a can of Healthy Request mushroom soup and make as a casserole either in the oven for 350 for about 20 or 30 minutes, or just mix all together and heat on the stove. Sometimes add some shredded lowfat cheese on top.

I've gotten much better at incorporating leftovers into my meal plan. I don't like waste! Here are some of my favorites:

Leftover rice combined with leftover chicken and veggies to make Fried Rice. Just add a little soy sauce. Or if you have a lot you can make Rice Pudding. A quick breakfast my mom used to make was rice, milk and cinnamon/sugar. Simply heat in microwave.

Add veggies or chicken to canned soup.

Leftover onions get chopped immediately and frozen for use later when I'm stretched for time.

Bananas beginning to spoil are peeled, cut and frozen for smoothies.

Apples going soft are cut and cooked for Fried Apples. Use a little apple juice to cook, and add cinnamon and sugar after apples are soft.

Fresh vegetables sauteed for omlettes, salad, quiche, stir-frys, pizzas or spaghetti sauce.

Leftover ham makes a great Strata. Check out recipe at SparkRecipes. This is a great way to use leftover bakery bread too.

Leftover mashed potatoes make great potato pancakes.

I also tend to eat leftovers a lot for lunch, but there are times that you just have to get creative! Hope this helps.

We do the same thing.
I'll usually cook enough so that my DD and DGD can take some for lunch the next day. I'm a stay-at-home, so sometimes I get to eat the leftovers for lunch, but not often.

usually, leftover veggies get used as a starter to spaghetti sauce for any pasta dish. We especially like baked ziti with meatballs, baked spaghetti pie, "chunky" sauce without meat sometimes with angelhair pasta...also egg pasta frittata.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

Last night I put together a menagerie of left over veggies (all were oven roasted w/Pam), chicken breast, and rice and then topped with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Worked great for today's lunch! Tasted great, very filling, and I got a lot of vegetables in for the day.

When my kids have activities that are scheduled for early evening (right after I get off work) the leftovers come in handy. They reheat them, eat it for dinner and are ready to go when I get home to take them where they need to go. Better than store bought nuke-a-meals and since it's usually reheated in the container it was stored in, no real dishes to clean. emoticon

Grocery day is Sunday, it's also fridge cleaning day - simple start to the process by clearing out last's week's veggies into a stock pot, and then I clean and prep this weeks. Everything goes in the pot, simmers for a few hours then I have enough stock for the week.

I use the stock on a daily basis almost - either for poaching meat or making really low calorie dips (my favorite is a roasted garlic one, 2 cloves of roasted garlic with 2 tsp of stock, mix together and I have a veggie dip)

Wraps are a great leftover saver - whatever protein (fish, egg, or meat) gets ground or minced up with some celery and onions, add a tbsp of light ranch dressing **fewer calories, more flavour than mayo** and added into a tortilla, and of course, I always pull out some lettuce from the bag of salad I have in the drawer.

Since starting this diet, I can't remember throwing out any food.

I actually had left over steak the other day - easy peasy - went to the pre-cut veggie, grabbed a handful of peppers, some pre-cut onions and sauted them with some salsa and the leftover steak - add some lettuce and voila - instant fajita (fantastic, except now I'm expected to have leftover steak again lol)

Left over fresh soft tortillas make a great lunch or snack for my kids. They love to put peanut butter & jelly or peanut butter & banana in the tortillas to eat. (I don't like to freeze them as I find they can get "brittle" once they have been frozen)

many leftovers can be combined to make a buffet for the family. Just freeze them as you get them & once in awhile defrost & assemble for all to share

Those leftover vegetables can add up to a good soup or fritatta.

Regularly make 'extra' so that we will have another meal, usually by adding different vegetables & salad.

I have used some of my left overs to add to salads. If I don't have enough chicken to make a 2nd meal, it will make a lovely addition to a salad.

I like to make wraps with our leftovers and omlettes so we rarely have anything spoil or get forgotten. Leftover veggies I put in a Zip Lock bag and make soup stocks and veggie soups and sometimes add chicken or beef to them. We think many of our meals taste better the second time around. Learning to cook for two has been really hard for me. If I can't resist making a big pot of something, we have three neighbors that love to join us for a meal. They are widows and widowers and they usually add something from their frig to the meal. Then any leftovers go home with them!!

This sets the success bar on an even keel. You can more readily stay on track if everything is ready for you to use.

It is so nice to take out those pre-cute veggies from the fridge to use them. It makes all that cutting and prepping pay off.
