I try to make a bag of frozen veggies with every dinner. I eat the veggies first, before moving on to any other food. After I'm done with a bag of veggies I am almost full, and therefore I don't eat too much of anything else. Pig out on the veggies, and then you won't be able to pig out on the dessert and other fattening foods!
Instead of drizzling oil over veggies in the pan you use to roast them in, first put your veggies in a bowl with 2 Tbs. of oil. Mix veggies to coat. Then put the veggies in the roasting pan. Excess oil stays in the bowl, and you know exactly how much oil was used.
