Plan ahead for Success

I plan all my meals the day before, I fix my breakfast and lunch the night before, and I always have something frozen in case something unexpected comes up.

New Way of Eating

I discovered SP Recipes and I love them. Tasty new ways of cooking and using spices as well as calorie counts.

Taste Testing?

Sometimes I find myself taste-testing a bit too much while I'm cooking ~ Chewing sugarless gum helps keep this in check.

Freeze homemade bread machine bread in portions-save $, no waste.

Drag that bread machine back out and make your own bread again. I use organic whole grain flours and save a fortune over store bought--only thing, the bread would go bad too fast for me to eat it. Now I cut and freeze it in one and two slice packs. Problem solved!

Don't be afraid to experiment

Don't be afraid to experiment with different foods and spices. If the food you're eating is good for you AND tastes good too, you're more likely to stick to your healthy eating goals.

Sugar

Perhaps many of you know about this but I only just found out. STEVIA is a natural sugar. It is used just like sugar and has ZERO calories.

Save $s and Calories while giving your meal a crunch.

If you're on a budget, or trying to drop a few pounds,why not give this a try? Make up your bolognese or curry etc as usual, but substituting a diced potato, chick peas or beans for 1/4 of the meat. This saves calories, and money or it may just stretch a meal for an unexpected guest.
