Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
This is a great website that lets you choose how many calories, carbs and fat you can have and it gives you recipes under those guidelines.
Instead of pouring oil in the pan when you're cooking meats, brush your meat with oil instead.

1 bananna, 1 cup of plain greek yogurt, half a cup of milk combine all ingredients in a blender to make this smoothie/ bananna yogurt.
If you prepare a new recipe and share it with SP, PLEASE indicate the serving size in the recipe! If you just say your recipe "Makes 12 servings of 147 calories each" without specifying you meant 12 1/2-cup servings it may ruin the day for someone who guessed you meant 1-cup servings!
Grilling allows the fat to driop out of meat as it cooks. Saves alot and grilling tastes GREAT!!
I hard boil eggs a dozen at a time and keep them separate from the other eggs, so I don't mix them up.
They keep for a long time and I can grab one quickly and peel and eat rather than another more high calorie snack.
When we lived in AK, we were shown how to cook salmon in the dishwasher. Wrap it up in double thickness of aluminum foil, adding lemon and other seasonings, place in the top rack of the washer (no dishes or soap) and run on your steam cycle.
Cut sweet potato in very, very thin julienne strips - par boil for a few minutes... heat wok on high, spray a wok with olive oil, add sweet potato strips... stir to evenly cook sweet potatoes...season with any type of spice that you want. (you can also wrap in foil and put on the grill!)
Take the boredom out of salads. Keep a variety of different salad fixin's to vary up your plate. I keep craisins, low fat feta cheese, low sodium - low fat grated cheeses, low sodium turkey breast, as well as broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, celery, frozen baby peas and healthy salad dressings.
