Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker!!!

This one dish has been a lifesaver for me in terms of preparing quick, healthy meals - if I'm short on time, it keeps me from ordering bad food!

2 Chx Breast, red and yellow peppers, garlic, lime juice and low sodium taco seasoning - 12 minutes in the microwave for low fat chicken fajitas for 2!

Nightime Eating

If you are like me and get hungry at night here is what I do. I plan out my food in my nutrition tracker and always leave just enough for a night time snack which is a bowl of cheerios. That satisfies a craving if you re really hungry and has no guilt attached because it fits in your tracker.

Onions for Flavor

I like to sprinkle a few fresh chopped onions into many of my recipes. To save time, I cut up a whole onion and put the unused portion into a small container and put it in the refrigerator. When I need a little onion the next day, it's ready and so am I.

Low Carb Substitutes for Pasta part 2

My other new weapon in my fight against weight gain and Diabetes is shirataki tofu noodles. These are *incredible* and only 20 calories and 3 g of carbs for a 4 oz serving! They only take 2 mins to prepare and are excellent not only for Italian dishes but soups, casseroles, stirfry, etc.

Low Carb Substitues for Pasta part 1

I love pasta, and make it frequently as it's a favorite in my household. The best part about my pasta however is my homemade sauce (and all the ooey gooey cheese!). I swap out the pasta with roasted eggplant or shirataki tofu noodles and have a very indulgent dinner for about 300 calories!

What's for Dinner (Breakfast, Lunch)?

I keep my digital camera handy and take pictures of my meals before I eat to refer to them when I'm met with the proverbial question, What's for Dinner? Once full, I simply download them to my computer. Bon Appetite! emoticon
