Cooking Notebook

I keep a notebook in my kitchen, and when I hear of cooking tips, recipes from others; so, when I am not near the computer, I jot them down and keep them in the notebook. I especially like the recipes from the baby boomers.

Shop ahead

comparison shop--as soon as I have bought that laundry detergent, I immediately shop for the next box and watch til I find the best deal and then buy it. Save each time

Hard boiled eggs

I hard boil eggs a dozen at a time and keep them separate from the other eggs, so I don't mix them up.

They keep for a long time and I can grab one quickly and peel and eat rather than another more high calorie snack.

Walking tours

I discovered a self-walking tour book at the library for areas within driving distances from where I live. By spending my weekends on these tours, it makes exercising fun as I follow the history and paths of these tours.

Sorting laundry

I keep two hampers. One for the white clothes and one for the dark clothing. It saves time sorting when it's time to go to the washer.

Getting Started over and over again.

Over and over again...remember to get back on the wagon at the very next meal by eating one of the Sparks menu meals. Don't wait until the next morning to begin with breakfast.

Many of us will fall off the wagon...it's a lifestyle change, so next meal begin again, and with a glass of water, too!

Applesauce instead of a milkshake

I found a substitute for the milk shake habit that I was often heading to the deli for--applesauce. I keep a jar in the refrig now, and I put some into a glass and then drink it through a thick straw. The texture is the same, and I'm comfortable with it.....less calories for sure.
