A wise woman once told me, "Stop saying "no" to foods that aren't the healthiest choice; instead say "not now" or "not today". "No" only leads to your feeling deprived and gives power to the forbidden food which has become so much more appealing. On the other hand, if you say "not now," you are taking the power back in your hands. It allows for the possibility that at some time in the future, you will let those empty calories in but not here and now, not today - not for ever, just not now!"
To save money, meal preparation and clean up time, I purchase 2-3 pkgs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts when they go on sale, wrap 2-3 breasts with my favorite seasoning in foil and freeze all foil pkgs in one large freezer bag. When you feel like it, take on pkg out of the bag and cook (from frozen) in oven @ 250ºF for 3-4 hrs while you go about your business (best if also baking potatoes or squash.) Meat always tender and you have low cal meals ready for the rest of the week.
