We can all get stuck in a rut from time to time and find ourselves eating the same old dishes week in and week out (day in and day out in some cases). I'm making it a habit to try a new Spark recipe at least once a week. This helps to cut culinary boredom and adds variety and interest to my meals.
Go to eatbetteramerica.com. They have hundreds of fantastic recipes and show nutritional information for each and every one of them. As a bonus, they also have "Healthified" recipes - think meals that are traditionally not good for you, but modified to be better. As a carb and sauce loving Italia...
Use a tablespoon instead of a serving spoon . Also put food on your plate from the stove instead of in bowls where you see ALL that food that needs to be eaten.

I love creamy food and cheese WAY too much. I have found that adding fat free cottage cheese to many dishes adds protein and gives it more substance. Not to mention if it melts it makes it seem like a sinful treat! It is really helping me to fill up at meals and stay in range! 20 lbs gone now!
