Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
I ahave been sneaking truvia in my hubby's oatmeal and he cant tell the difference
I know this sounds a little obvious, but the more boring meals become, the less likely we stick to a healthy food plan. Chicken breast and fish can be sooooooooo boring after awhile. Add spices and herbs! (fresh and dried). Change it up to change the tastes. Watch the salt however.
I try adding a salad in with lunch its a great fiber and also fills you up faster tooo so you dont want to pick
I put apple sauce in my brownie mix instead of butter and eggs!
Make sure you understand and control portions by having measuring cups and spoons handy, smaller bowls and plates (custard cup, salad-sized), and, if you find it helpful, a food scale.
My other new weapon in my fight against weight gain and Diabetes is shirataki tofu noodles. These are *incredible* and only 20 calories and 3 g of carbs for a 4 oz serving! They only take 2 mins to prepare and are excellent not only for Italian dishes but soups, casseroles, stirfry, etc.
I buy only the things that are low carb and even hubby eats them now.
To cut back on our meat intake, I add cooked lentils to dishes that I use ground beef or ground turkey in.
Preparing meals for your family the night before help save time and makes the next day a little easier.
