Look up your "mutual friends" easily!

Have you ever wondered if you have remembered to "add back" all of the people who have added you as a friend?

Go to your Friend Feed. Right above the Friend Feed is a paragraph that says to "click here" to see your mutual friends. You can also see people you have added (but didn't add you) and people who added you (but you haven't added them yet).

Here's another way to get to that page - copy and paste this link into your browser:

Protecting Your Digital Food Scale

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.

With clean hands, simply place a large enough piece of plastic wrap over the scale and keypad.

Low fat snack

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.

Cookbook

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.

Pasta Lover

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.
They taste like any other pasta...especially love using them with the "Hungry Girl" recipe for the Fettuccine Alfredo and adding chicken or shrimp with tons of veggies!

Soup Over Time

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.
