One of my greatest weight loss secrets is cooking stir fry. Stir fry is simple to prepare, you can use almost any foods, and is generally very low calorie.
Spray a Wok with cooking spray (about 15 calories to coat a medium pan), toss in all the veggies you want (onions, peppers, zuccini, broccoli, really anything), add some lean meat (beef, chicken, pork) and stir, stir, stir.
You can add garlic, soy sause, a bit of bbq sauce, etc. for flavor if you want!!

A great tasty substitute for oil when doing stir fry or browning meat
My husband likes to take 1/2 to 1 whole onion and slowly cook it until it is translucent and there is a good amount of fluid. We like to use his "onion juice" for stir-fry and for browing meat. It tastes great and adds no fat!
I have Stir Fry veggies at least 3-4 times a week for my main meal, usually dinner. I always make extra and the next day I put a cup of leftover stir fry in a whole wheat wrap, add 2 oz of cooked chicken, baked fish, salmon or tuna. Nice and moist and yummy! P.S. I have lost 135lb so it must be working.
