Saving Pizza

When we order a pizza we eat less than half so I wrap it well and freeze the leftovers. Then we heat it when we want pizza again either for dinner with a salad or a slice for lunch. We don't like a lot of cheese or sauce at all so we mainly get fresh tomato, broccoli and onion with a little cheese

Learn Your Staples for a Fresh 10-Minute Meal!

I know exactly what I need to insure I have enough to cook my quick, cheap, healthy meals on the fly. If I have frozen chicken breasts and pork chops or tofu and microwaveable bags of veggies, I can usually interchange with salad mix and a starch and have a fresh meal in 10 minutes!

a little bit of cheese goes a long way

emoticon I love cheese and I could easily eat too much of it ,so I select a small piece of parmesan cheese and use a lemon zester to grate it over my vegetables- It grates the cheese into much smaller pieces, than a regular grater and I get the taste I want (crave),from a small chunk.

Cooking Extras Saves Time

When I make dinner, I make sure to have enough for my husband and I to have the same meal for lunch the next day. I only cook once for two meals. This way I know it is healthy and affordable.

Making your own low sodium vegetable broth

Since I cook fresh vegetables at least once a day now, I save all the ends and tops in a container in the fridge. Every couple of days I boil them to make my own vegetable broth.

Substitute Raw Sugar for Honey

Most recipes that call for honey can substitute sugar. Instead of using refined white sugar, use Sugar in the Raw. This will greatly decrease your overall sugar and carbohydrate intake while giving your body something it can digest more easily. Natural is always the best option!

fresh herbs

In spring, I head to the nursey and stock up on fresh herb plants. They really bring out the flavors in salad dressings. My favorite is mint which I boil with two large tea bags and 10 quarts of water for my iced tea supply.

Food measuring time saver

I eat oatmeal for breakfast and I know that 1/2 cup is a serving. So, I leave the 1/2 cup measure in the container and I can measure it out quickly.
