Increase Nutritional Value and Save Money

When you will not be able to use all the milk before it spoils, freeze in ice cube trays or in something that will allow you to easily break it up. Use in place of ice in smoothies, shakes & other recipes that call for ice cubes. Can also be used to keep a glass of milk cold.

Spinach and Mushroom pizza = Tasty Protein for Vegetarians

Lean Cuisine has meatless personal pizzas that do double duty for me. #1 - they satisfy my craving for pizza with only 330 in cal and 7g in fat and #2 - the spinach and mushroom has 16g of protein.

I just bought 97% fat free ground turkey to make turkey burgers (add chopped onion, garlic, spices, etc.)I had a little left over and made 4 or 5 mini burgers (2" around)... Baked as regular, then froze them... Perfect snack when I want substance and protein...but not a full meal...delish!

pecans

Pecans are good for you. They are delicious, especially toasted, and if you COUNT them out, you won't binge. I believe that unsalted nuts are less addictive, so skip the salt . Pecans are high in protein and healthy oils.

Dessert

If you want to avoid over-indulging in dessert wait for about 20 minutes after finishing the main course: you won't feel nearly as hungry.

Stop blaming the food!

There is no such thing as a good or bad food. Food is fuel. Depending on what you put in your body will help you lose or gain weight. Some food will give more energy than others. Find out a good combination so you don't deprive yourself and gorge later.

Quick meals

I buy bags of individually flash-frozen chicken breasts and frozen veggies and keep them on hand for nights when I don't feel like spending much time cooking. I can cook a healthy, filling, low-cal, low-sodium meal in 10-15 minutes.
