Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
Add mushrooms in your sauces and everywhere else you can. They contain very few calories but much protein taste awesome too since they absorb the taste of anything you've cooked like little sponges!
I add ginger to a lot of the foods I cook. Ginger is a good remedy for most stomach ailments and adds a spicy kick to foods. It's great with chicken, veggies, and shrimp. I also like to add it to my marinara sauce. It adds kick and cuts down on the heartburn, too!
I add chili sauce to almost everything that I cook.
Eating healthy doesn't have to mean boring blah food. Using herbs and seasonings to their best advantage will make things taste great!
Yesterday I used a mini cupcake pan to make cupcakes. The cupcakes are tiny so I can have a sweet treat without piling on the calories!!!!
my magic bullit helps with grinding regular oats into oat bran so that i can add that to almost everything i cook. oat bran adds a great deal of both the fibers. it will puree fruit so that i can add that instead of butter, oils or sugars. it is a very small appliance that saves me calories. :)
To get the most juice out of a lemon, put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds then roll on counter with palm of hand. You will get everydrop to the delicious liquid.
I make up a batch of" Chicken Kale Vegetable "soup and "Turkey Veggie Joe "mix served on whole grain slim buns. Alternate lunches for a few days. I add one seving of whole grain crackers with soup and plate of fruit with the Joes.
Line the 2nd casserole dish w/ heavy-duty foil, leaving enough to fold over the top, then fill, close up and freeze. When frozen, remove foil package - you get your dish back, and when you want to eat the frozen casserole, just put it back in the dish and bake. To clean up, just toss the foil!
Divide cookie dough into cookie sized portions. Quick freeze these in a single layer on a cookie sheet and once frozen, portion into freezer bags. After sealing, write baking directions on each bag. Bags of one or two are great for a quick fix, bags of 6 to 8 are great when you have company!
