Make your own bread to control the carbs

By making my own whole wheat bread at home, I can control what goes in it and the size of the slices. This way, I can manage my carb intake better while still enjoying a "two slice" sandwich!

Make Homemade soup

Homemade soup is a great way to have a full meal that is low in calories. I typically use beans, lentils or barley, along with a bunch of veggies, some seasonings, and healthy bullion or stock. Have a salad with it to have an awesome nutrient packed meal! Also, soup is cheap, easy (chop your veggies and stir) and a batch can last a few days.

Homemade Body Scrub

I'm not very crafty or do it yourself, but I have a body scrub addiction and it was starting to cost too much..so I looked into doing it myself and it was so easy! I use good ol' white sugar (you can also use salt or brown sugar for varying textures - I like it rough) and I mixed it with lime infused olive oil. I had that as a gift and am unsure of how much it would cost to buy, but you could use plain olive oil also and then just add some essential oils for yummy scents.

Freezing Baby Food

Whether you're making your own baby food or trying to figure out what to do with the remaining food in the jar you just opened, get shallow specialty-shaped silicon ice cube trays to freeze the baby food. Silicon makes it easier to get the food out of the tray & you don't have to worry about BPA.

Don't guess how many calories! Add your own Recipes!

If you like to cook from scratch or just want to know how many calories are in the way YOU mix it together, add your own recipe! You only have to measure it once and then you know. Also, add the serving measurement to the title so you know exactly how to enter it in your tracker.
