Find interesting ways to combine ingredients

If you're getting bored with the same foods all the time, try combining them in different ways. For example, I got awfully tired of having grilled chicken salads, so I decided to put grilled steak in my salad instead.

Lowering Fat in Ground Meats Further

In addition to draining the ground meats, beef, turkey, chicken, pork, etc. Take the pot and put a wire strainer over it then run it under hot water and drain. This will wash away most of the fat. If you season while you cook, you'll need to re-season, because it washes your seasoning away too.

mashed potatoes too runny?

Keep a box of instant mashed potatoes in the pantry, to add to homemade mashed potatoes, that need thickened up a little. Just add a small amount at a time 'til desired thickness.

Low Calorie Protein

I have learned to eat egg whites or egg white substitutes along with shrimp as my primary protein sources because they are so low in calories--more bang for my buck!
