Love long-cooking oatmeal? Hate stirring? Use your crockpot

My hubby loves the oatmeal that takes 40 minutes of constant stirring until it's cooked. (example is McCann's Steel Cut Oat Meal).

Now he can use a small crockpot, 4 cups cold water, 1 cup oats and set it on low just before going to sleep.

6 hours later, an entire pot of perfectly cooked oatmeal.

Kitchen Workout!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!

If you cook wearing your work out clothes; you'll be less likely to keep on tasting; therefore saving calories. Sounds silly and it may just be. But it works. lol
Plus it also may remind you to squeeze your booty muscles! emoticon

fats

well instead of making goodies with sugar or bad fats I use very little or add things like unsweetened applesauce, or bananas, coconut milk, whole wheat flour, nonfat milk if called for, nonfat cream cheese, etc. little tricks that help lower fat and sugar too.

The Weekly Purge

Once a week, I 'purge' the refrigerator, getting rid of all limp or wilted foods, wipe down the shelves and drawers; then I can see what we need to replenish and it helps me w/ my grocery list as well as menu plan for the week. (It only takes minutes)

Cheater's Cupcake

To make a most decadent cupcake without the calories and fat, select your favorite cake mix and add a 15 oz. can of pumpkin and 1/4 cup of water to it. Bake as the package instructs and you will have cupcakes so moist and gooey you will not need frosting! Good with chocolate, and especially spice flavored mix! emoticon
