Using SplashShopper (or any phone app) for a master to-to list and daily selecting the to-dos off the master list.
Many tasks need repeated on a weekly/monthly/quarterly basis. I am find I eed a separate work and home list. By using a list program to enter master tasks, e.g. dish washing, I can review my master list and select what tasks need attention today. My phone is always with me to keep me on track.
No extra calories in this quick idea using ingredients already in your meal. When you've finished cooking potatoes with your roast beef, pork tenderloin, chicken or turkey, remove all of the vegetables from the drippings. Return some potatoes to the drippings & whizz them up with a hand blender. The consistency becomes just like gravy & doesn't add unnecessary flour/cornstarch etc calories. Just plain good food that you were already going to eat!
If you don't have a hand blender, a regular counter top blender will do just fine.
I couldn't live without my stick blender (immersion blender)- Makes smoothies and soups so much easier to prepare when you don't have to transfer from the blender and clean up is a breeze!
