During season, we go to the Farmer's Market and try to find something new and in season to add to our veggies for the week. I love learning to cook something new and dinner is never boring.

croutons trick

When I have croutons with my salad, i crumble them to make it look like there's more on a plate. I'm such a visual person and it really does the trick of convincing my mind that there's plenty croutons in there where in reality it's only a couple. You'll save a lot of calories in your salad doing so

INFO CAN CHANGE ON PACKAGES

Every so often double check info on packages. I manually entered nutritional values for an item and about 2 month later the company must have changed the recipe to cut cost and it changed the nutritional values to lower values.

Economic Portions

I've found that even though buying the pre-portioned ice cream servings from Weight Watchers, Skinny Cow, etc. is much more economical. One box of 6 bars for $5 may cost more than the $3 I'd pay for 12 servings in a half-gallon of ice cream, but those bars last 6+ days; reg ice cream lasts 2-4 days.
