Chocolate

Save time by melting chocolate in the microwave: usually 2 minutes on Medium will do it. If it doesn't look melted give it a little stir to finish off.

Rice Milk ice cubes

I make ice cubes with rice milk so my protein drink is cold and not watered down with plain ice.

Batch Cooking with Recipe Calculator

I enter ingredients measured in grams. After the meal is done, I figure out how many servings it makes and weigh one portion in grams. I then change the title to include the amount of grams in one serving. I can freeze in larger portions and don't have to remember serving size.

mashed potatoes

I find mash potatoes to be very boring and tasteless, so when I cook them now I'll add a head of cauliflour and boil them together then mash them. Put them in a casserole dish sprinkled with cheddar and broil till the top is browned, Great flavor and everyone loves them.

Making it better

I have found that substituting salt with red pepper and herbal seasonings take away the need for that salty taste.

I use applesauce in exchange for shortening/oil in recipes to lower the fat content.

What's for Dinner (Breakfast, Lunch)?

I keep my digital camera handy and take pictures of my meals before I eat to refer to them when I'm met with the proverbial question, What's for Dinner? Once full, I simply download them to my computer. Bon Appetite!

Clean Eating

Eating clean has changed my life! I eat as close to the source as possible and very little processed food. Clean Eating Magazine and Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook are staples in my kitchen!
