Pre-cooking meat

I pre-cook a turkey and split in baggies for the freezer in 3 or 4 oz portions. This is great to grab and go to put in pasta, salads or just as your daily protein. I can then make alternative meat for my hubby and son if they don't want turkey and eat the same veggies and sides while lowering my calorie count. emoticon

Easy Way to Make Iced Tea

I use my drip coffee maker to make quick easy iced tea. Put 3-4 tea bags in the coffee filter and run through a carafe of water. Pour hot tea into a pitcher 1/2 full of ice and Viola... perfect iced tea!

Grilling Veggies

Use a cooling rack placed crosswise on your grill to keep vegetables in place and not falling through. Spray it with nonstick cooking spray to make it an easy job.

No fancy gear needed, nothing extra to store in the off-season.

Cooking Meat

When cooking meat or poultry, remove it from the refrigerator 5 minutes before adding to a hot pan. If you put it in right away it shocks it and it becomes tough.

Self made flavored water for 0 calories

Every once in a while I get sick of plain water, but the flavored waters here in Germany are either full of sugar or artificial sweeteners.
I found out how to make my own 0 calorie flavored water threw accident!
We have great fruit teas here in germany, I use 5 bags of fruit tea on a pitcher of hot water and just let it cool down. Then I mix it with sparkling water and finished. Flavored Water!
