Introducing New Veggies

If you are like me, there are a bunch of veggies out there that I have yet to try and am afraid to because of waste and cost. So do what I do and mix them with other veggies you love, like parsnips with carrots, broccoli with cauliflower, etc.

Live like a peasant

Yeah, it doesn't sound that appealing. But really, if you ever want to figure out something quick, cheap, and healthy to cook, look to the peasants of the world. Whether it's a hearty french vegetable stew, or a lentil curry from the far east, or even just some rice with stir-fried vegetables...

Sour Cream Subsitute

Instead of putting sour cream on a baked potato I put a dab of non fat plain yogurt. It may sound a bit weird, but I think you would be amazed how close in taste they are.

indulging in delicious dessert

I love ice cream so instead of feeling deprived I treat myself to a low fat healthy sundae, I buy low fat sugar free ice cream (80 calories per 4 oz) put 2 layers of ice cream, sliced strawberries and bananas, 1 tsp slivered almonds, 1 tsp low fat choc. syrup. Only 180 calories!! Yum!!

frozen grapes!


If you love grapes but like me, tend to eat too many of them,
put a portion of them in a plastic bag and throw them in the freezer. They are the most delicious little parfaits when they are frozen, they take longer to eat and they are SO refreshing after working out!!

Sunbeam Rocket Grill - no clean up at all!

I love grilled meats and fish and own a George Foreman grill, but I hate the clean-up involved after grilling or sauteing meats. While searching for something else, I came across the Rocket Grill.
