Make my own prepackaged foods

I save money and eat healthy by slow cooking large amounts of brown rice or beans and then saving meal sized portions in re-usable freezer and microwave safe containers. I also do this with chicken breast I use for salads and sandwiches and it saves me from buying the salty prepared kind.

Rice!

I'm sure this has been posted a million times, but: there is nothing rice can't be added to to create more of a meal. Can of soup + rice = meal! Can of beans + rice = meal! Chicken broth + rice = meal! Lentils + rice = meal! Potatoes + rice = meal! Frozen, fresh or canned veggies + rice = meal! I could go on and on. You get the idea. Rice is a lifesaver.

Brown Rice - Shorten the cooking time

Did you know you can pre-soak your brown rice and thereby shorten the cooking time? Just 1 hour of pre-soaking will cut as much as 10 minutes of cooking time and your rice will be fluffier too.

low cal "Carriers" instead of Pasta or Rice

Do you have a nice, low calorie recipe for a stew, chili, saucy dish, or topping, but find that once you add in the obligatory noodles or rice for it to sit on, its now way more calories than you wanted? Instead of pasta, try spinach. Instead of rice, try cauliflower rice!

Stretch your ground beef meals!

Brown ground beef, drain the fat, then rinse beef with hot water (use a mesh collander; see one of my other tips). (Using hot water congeals the fat, and it won't rinse out through the collandar.)

Then add cooked brown rice to "stretch" your yield!
