Creamy Salad Dressing--with the GOOD fats!

Sometimes creamy salad dressings are just better. But stop myself from reaching for the cesear or ranch dressing I just add a chopped egg and half an avocado, along with a simple balsamic vinaigrette. I put a plate on top of my bowl and shake or toss really well. The egg yolk and avocado add a creamy quality while supplying my body with the good fats and some protein! Yummy.

Fat Free vs Full Fat

Full fat wins! Natural fats from foraging, pastured, or wild animals and tropical oils (all non-hydrogenated) are the healthiest there is. It is what our bodies were designed to eat!

CHICKEN SOUP for the CRAVINGS (without the calories)

When I'm craving I grab a chicken Bouillon cube and heat up a hot mug of water. It's like having chicken soup without the noodles and chicken. It's filling, comforting, and satisfying. It is made by dehydrating vegetables, meat stock, a very small portion of fat, salt and seasonings. Plus you get that extra water in there!! emoticon

Cut Your Pasta servings in HALF with NO ONE missing the extra calories!

Make your sauce CHUNKY with LOTS of veggies( tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, spinach, squash etc) It should be like a stew..Don't let it get "runny" . Boil 1oz whole grain pasta per person and when done- use kitchen shears to snip into small pieces. Mix into sauce and divide into servings. The veggies make up for the lower amount of pasta. And because it isn't a mound under the sauce- no one can gage how much( or little) pasta they actually have.!

Baby Steps!

Usually, I would jump all into dieting: change everything to fat-free, get the yuckiest stuff just because it's low-cal, turn away from every "fattening" thing I saw. That can only work for so long. I have made my changes less drastic this time around. Some low-fat items are really good. Some things you just need to eat as is and count it in your calories. Moderation & baby steps will get us there!

Creamy without the Fat

Add 1 or 2 extra tbsp of fat free yoghurt to your smoothies or banana milk or any beverage of the type. It makes the consistency of your drink very creamy & adds flavour without adding fat! emoticon

Grilling and smoking is for everything.

Grilling fruits and vegetables, makes it them easier to eat. It heightens their flavors, and brings your dish to a whole new level. Try it with Fruits also, great dessert on their own this way. With out adding sweeteners and extra calories.

Clean up that George Foreman Grill!

A quick way to clean up your grill is to get a clean dishrag or washcloth, wet and put it on the grill right after the food is done. The steam from the wet rag will help soften the hardened "bits" making it easier to clean up after your meal.
