Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
I make Oatmeal every morning. I use the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats but I still microwave it. I use 1/2 cup Oats and 1 cup water and cook for 2 minutes. I have a canister that I store the Oatmeal in and I also keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in there too..makes preparing it that much quicker.
Cooking and eating at home saves calories
When I am making tuna noodle casserole....or Spinach stuffed turkey meatloaf....mac & cheese....I make two....and freeze one so that I always have a delicious meal...even when I have no time to cook. I freeze it in the small casserole dish that I am putting in the oven.
Instead of mayo, I use low or fat free ranch dressing and mustard with the tuna. I dice cucumber with skin into it. It makes for a refreshing, low calorie and flavorful dish!
I peel the fresh ginger, wrap it up in cellophane in big pieces, and then when I need it, I just GRATE some of the fresh stalk into the pan. This works very well. I always used to let the fresh ginger ROT by mistake. I heard this from Doctor Zorba Pastor on Your Health (Radio Show)
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.

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!
