Spices,Spices,S
pices!!

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.

Have the right tools!

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.

Low Carb Substitutes for Pasta part 2

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.

Stretch meat with lentils.

To cut back on our meat intake, I add cooked lentils to dishes that I use ground beef or ground turkey in.

sneaky vegetable (kids and me)

When making chili, curries, or other seasoned meat sauces. mince vegs to a very fine level, or puree. Then and to sauce. You may need to add some additional seasoning.
