Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
I can't stand eating food that's too bland, so my secret to eating healthy is cooking with spices! It's the best way to add calorie free flavor. Cumin is my absolute favorite for everything from burgers to tacos to marinade! Yum!
I am trying to keep up with the nutrition list.
Eating fresh usually means a bit of veggie prep. I find that doing all the prep in the morning/afternoon and putting it in a bowl w/ a lid saves me tons of time in the evening. I marinade my proteins then too. In the fridge w/ it, & when I get home from work late in the evening dinner is a snap!
I've been able to make more time in my day by utilizing my Crock Pot more. Starting with fresh veggies makes dishes healthier too. I've been able to fit in more exercise time and more time with the kids by doing this. Try it!!!
I bought a Misto from Bed Bath and Beyond a few weeks ago and absolutely love it!! You just fill with any type of oil you like, pump a few times for pressure and spritz! It makes it so easy to lightly spritz veggies before roasting or spritzing a pan lightly instead of drizzling too much!
I like to add vanilla flavor to my fat free pudding along with banana almost like real banana pudding
I love using stainless steel bowls for all my mixing and prep work. Food doesn't stick to the sides and cleanup is such a breeze! I've used all types of bowls over the years: ceramic, pottery, plastic & glass. The stainless steel bowls surpass them all by a long shot.
I used to hate having to cook just for myself. After a long day of work and the gym, the last thing I wanted to do was cook a meal for myself. So then I discovered that if I can cook a couple of large meals on Sunday, divide them up into containers and freeze I will have dinners for the whole week!
Save a few dollars and space in your kitchen drawers by not buying a strawberry huller. To remove the hulls and tops from the berries, take a plastic drinking straw and insert it into the bottom of the strawberry. Push the straw through the top of the fruit and the hull will just pop right out.
