Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
A quick, easy. go-to breakfast:
4 egg whites
1 wedge Laughing Cow Lite Cheese
Cook egg whites until almost done. Add cheese and salsa. Continue cooking until eggs are set and cheese melts. About 118 cals (depending on how much salsa you use).
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!
