Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
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.
I love the dishwasher safe cutting boards. Usually made from Plastic, glass or any other surface that slips. If you heavily dampen one ( two paper towels if thay are thin). Place them under your board for rolling or hand chopping. The board will stay in place.For a long job, wet it again as needed.
Spicing up food makes me feel as if I am not being deprived, since certain spices make food taste great & high quality.
Canned refried beans are either high in fat or in sodium and usually both.
I found a receipe that uses dried beans and has very little fact and no sodium.
I can't stand eating food that's too bland, so my secret to eating healthy is cooking with spices! It's the best way to add calorie free flavor. Cumin is my absolute favorite for everything from burgers to tacos to marinade! Yum!
