Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
Toss your blueberries in flour before putting them in your mix. they won't sink to the bottom.
Applesauce can be substituted for vegetable oil. It contains less than half of the calories and almost none of the fat grams. It's also very, very easy to make yourself.
i HAVE FOUND THAT IF YOU CLEAN AS YOU GO WHILE MAKING A MEAL YOU GET YOUR CHORE OF CLEANING DONE IN HALF THE TIME
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. :)
