We talk about buying things in bulk, but sometimes hesitate when there is just one in the house. Even though salsa is a GREAT condiment to use/ low cal and adds great taste, sometimes I don't use it fast enough. I CAN put it in my chili or soup to add punch and a bit of FRESH, too so there is no waste.
Hmmm i love sodas and even juices, but of course those things are not so good for me. So as i cut down on them and up my water intake, i experiment with adding different items to my water.
When I'm having problems balancing my Carbs/Fat/Protein I go to my fave new discovery, Flatout Flat Bread Wraps. 100 Calories for a good sized wrap that tastes sorta neutral so works well for a nut butter, tofu wrap, or any kind of sandwich and can also be used with some ricotta cheese and a nice strawberry topping (homemade from Chef Meg's recipi) to make a kind of crepe/blintz. Buy One Get One=Freeze Well!
Before I had a look at Stage two and saw it was all about Measuring and being sure the portions were accurate, I decided to measure a few items I use in the kitchen. The ladle for beans plus. A few other easy serving utensils, ramekins, bowls, plus. Just keeps things a bit simpler.
If I brush my teeth after I've eaten, I'm a LOT less likely to eat again for quite sometime! Helps curb that EYE hungry and munching munching between planned meals.
