Having to whipe down your scale after each use can be a pain. I find that placing saran (plastic) wrap over the scale, including the key pad does the trick.
Try slicing cucumbers and using them as a "chip" with salsa. Very tasty, crunchy and very low calorie. Just be careful about the sodium on the salsa you select. This fits the bill when others are eating tortilla chips with salsa.
I don't have a secret just a comment. I'm going to create a new cookbook from the recipes here on the Spark website. I cannot afford to buy anything at the moment due to very low funds but I can save the recipes that look good to me that my family will eat. I will print them out one at a time and if they are liked I will put them in a page protector and put them in a 3 ring binder. I can't believe there are so many wonderful recipes here that are good for you that my family will eat.
For the past 6 months I have been cooking with shirataki noodles instead of regular pasta. Depending on which shirataki noodle you get, they can be anywhere from 0 to 20 cal. per serving instead of the regular 200 cal per serving for regular pasta.
I keep a zip lock freezer bag in my freezer that I am adding veggies to each day. If I have a 1/4 cup of green beans left over from dinner,etc. I add to the soup bag. I do this with every veggie, bean, celery leaf, etc. When I'm craving a pot of homemade soup I already have enough ingredients and also do not waste any food during the week. I accumulate and keep frozen until ready to use. This works well for 1-2 person households that have a little left after each meal but not a serving size.
