Recipe for a 5 veggie soup that runs about 350 calories for 2 cups. Kids like it to0. Freezes for lunches
I love tofu in Asian restaurants but know that they deep fat fry the pieces. I asked a Chinese friend how her tofu comes out so perfect . She told me to drop the pieces into boiling water for a minute or two, then drain. Then fry the pieces with just a thin coating of oil in the skillet. Comes out perfect without the excess oil. The outside of the pieces are nice and crusty. I use firm tofu for this.
Once a week, I 'purge' the refrigerator, getting rid of all limp or wilted foods, wipe down the shelves and drawers; then I can see what we need to replenish and it helps me w/ my grocery list as well as menu plan for the week. (It only takes minutes)
I am a peanut butter lover could eat it all the time :) Well I recently found PB2 which is a pressed peanut butter. It basically removes all of the oil leaving you with a powdered peanut butter that you add to dishes or favorite drink!!! Way less calories and still get the peanut butter flavor :) Their website also has lots of great recipes. PB2 only has 45 calories so this cuts about 150 calories compared to regular peanut butter
If you are like me and get hungry at night here is what I do. I plan out my food in my nutrition tracker and always leave just enough for a night time snack which is a bowl of cheerios. That satisfies a craving if you re really hungry and has no guilt attached because it fits in your tracker.
