Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
My favorite butcher shop will run specials on ground beef and bone/skin-less chicken breast in 10# bulk.
We baked peanut butter, sugar cookies, cinnamon buns, large biscuits and I had to have at least 1/2 of each thing. I stayed close to my food intake anyway.
When making your own Greek salad use English cucumbers instead of field cucumbers. Field cucumbers have a bitter skin and you'd have to peel it before adding it to your Greek salad.
I have jotted down a months worth of breakfasts and all I have to do to post is to go back to that date and forward a similar breakfast to the current day. SPARK has given us this feature and I use it daily to save time on my food posting.
When your bananas get to brown and you don't have time to use them don't throw them away. Just put them in the freezer. i don't even put them in a bag I just set them in there. When you want to make muffins or bread just defrost in microwave. Delicious. They are white in the inside amazing!
Cook your own food and use olive oil very small amount. There is nothing better than the food that is made at home.
You can control the calories that goes in there.
I weigh my pasta dry and count the noodles to know my portion size. Once counted, I then add them to the pot with the rest of the noodles I am making for dinner. When I am ready to dish up, I count out the same number of noodles to make sure I have the correct portion size.
I love to find healthy recipes or develop my own subs for less healthy ones. I try to keep processed foods out of our home and diet.
Try to fix meals ahead of time. This will save you time for friends and other things I like to make double the portion of food that way you have food for two different nights. You could make dinners and freeze them too.
