Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
LOVE IT, HATE CLEANING AFTER!
I just discovered that if fat on a piece of beef is tinged w/yellow, it usually indicates the stear is grass-fed.
Usually by the end of my day, I'm so hungry that it's all I can do to not consume a meal's worth of (albeit healthy) snacks while I'm cooking. I have discovered that chewing a piece of sugarless gum while I'm cooking keeps my mouth occupied and my hunger under control until it's time to eat dinner.
It's spring - time to grill food. I fill the grill with chicken or salmon and vege's: onions, red & green peppers, corn, whatever you like. Make extra of the protein to use in salads or sandwiches or spreads or whatever. Enjoy!
I put raw spinach on sandwiches instead of lettuce. In fact, I substitute it for lettuce everywhere. It has the same crunch factor, doesn't taste different, and is way more nutritious.
Roasting a chicken on Sunday gives us chicken for salads, casseroles and wraps for several days. I have purchased deli chickens which really is a time saver. Take it home, remove the skin and put in serving sizes and freeze what you are not going to eat in the net few days.
I just found out if you keep a bunch of celery wrapped in aluminum foil that it stays crisp.
When I have a chocolate craving I make a fruit cup with 11/2 Tablespoons of Chocolate Sauce underneath it. It is delish, you can take it with you and really kicks the craving too!
I use cut up Apple, a few grapes, a slice of orange filet and maybe some copped up nuts. But all fruits fits!
I put it on everthing lol
Thinking about how much I dread going to the store or to a restaurant because of the distance and time it takes to get there prevents me from eating out and encourages me to stay home and cook.
