I LOVE mexican food so I freeze pinto beans w/boiled pork in 1/2 cup servings in Ramekins. Thaw beans. On a flour tortillas I spread beans, cabot Light White cheddar and broil until heated. Then top with at least 1 cup of shredded Romaine, and salsa! If you want add light sour cream and 4 chips.

Salads are a great addition for helping dieters, it keeps you full-feeling and you can add great nutrition to your diets. Throw in some grape tomatoes, add fresh spinach (for the iron) and sprinkle craisins and nuts on it for texture and taste. Most importantly, put your dressings in a ramekin on the side - dip your fork into it and take a bite. It really helps and you will notice how little dressing you really need on your salads! 30
Plain ice berg lettuce gets very boring, don't hesitate to change up what you use. There is no rule that says your salad needs to have somethings you don't like. Put vegetables that are fresh and that you eat in them!
Before I had a look at Stage two and saw it was all about Measuring and being sure the portions were accurate, I decided to measure a few items I use in the kitchen. The ladle for beans plus. A few other easy serving utensils, ramekins, bowls, plus. Just keeps things a bit simpler.
Buy a set of Ramekins (or other bowls) that hold just 1/2 cup or 4 ounces in them. Use them to easily measure ice cream and yogurt. You can baked an apple crisp in them and have the right portion size.
