almonds

I once heard a health guru say that for breakfast they ate 28 almonds (194 calories). They are a healthy alternative to just snacking on sweets. A jar sits on my kitchen counter top for when the munchies are taking over. And they're good for you!

Crockpot

Using a crock pot is a great way to stay healthy when you have a busy hectic lifestyle. You get great flavor when you let the ingredients meld together all day long. You can monitor what you put in, and because it cooks all day you don't have to put as much salt in to get the flavor you want.

Sweet substitutes

Replace the butter and whole eggs in cookies with equal amount of white canned beans and 2 egg whites; in brownies with equal amount of black canned beans and 2 egg whites. Rinse beans well and then put in a processor or a blender with the egg whites until smooth Less fat, more fiber and protein!

Cooking in Advance

I buy what I need and take a day to make meals in advanced. I portion out meals and put them in the freezer and thaw as needed. I also make breakfast in advance for a week (5 days for work) so I can just grab a container and head off to work.

cooking in batches

If I can make double a recipe and freeze it I do. I also make portions for my DH so when I am out of town he has a good homemade meal and doesn't have to resort to TV dinners.

Healthy Delicious Snack

My new favorite snack has become an 80 calorie yogurt with 1 TBS of grape nuts added. I fine it is best in the red or blue yogurts. (instead of lemon, lime etc.) The grape nuts have 33 calories, but it's much more satisfying than just yogurt.
