Nice plates!

I spent about $20 on a set of pretty white ceramic square salad plates at Kohl's (Food Network brand). I use them for all my meals. One, because everything looks tastier on a pretty plate. And two, since I bought salad plates instead of dinner plates, I eat a lot less even if the plate is full!!

Make ahead breakfast

I bought a Stanley food container (like a thermos) that keeps food hot or cold for 12 hours. At night I put 1/2 cup of steel cut oats in it, and add 1 cup of boiling water, and close the container. In the morning I have a no-fuss breakfast, which comes in handy for mornings when I'm running late!

Multi-tasking your oven

If I'm cooking something in my oven, I'll throw in a few split breasts with the skin removed while I'm baking my casserole or whatever. Then, when the chicken cools, I shred it for later uses. That way, I'm not using my oven just to bake the chicken and I always have cooked chicken on hand.

Pasta Pot = Stock Pot

Use your pasta pot when making home made stock or broth. Quick and easy way to strain out vegetables, bones, etc... with out the danger of pouring a hot liquid through a strainer.

Chew Gum!

Chewing gum is quite possibly, and quite literally, a lifesaver for me. Whenever I feel that craving coming on for something I don't need, I pop the gum in the my mouth and move on.

Easy, healthy breakfast

When I return from the store I chop a green and red pepper and put on a cookie sheet in the freezer, then I chop green onions & spread on top of the peppers, followed by chopped ham, mushrooms, asparagus and broccoli. After all are frozen, they go into a zip lock bag, I can use 1/2 cup in my omelet

Eat Slower

Eating slowly can also help when you are trying to lose weight because it can make you fuller faster. When people eat to fast they consume too much and therefore expand their stomachs. Eating slowly can also look more appealing to the eye than gorging down your food at a table.
