Cut 100/250/500 Calories A Day Without Feeling Hungry

Even minimally cutting your daily calorie intake can trim fat from your body. I mean so minimally that you likely won’t even notice the difference. Feeling hungry? Forget it! How minimally? 100 calories. Translation? About 1 apple. Yup, scientists at Harvard and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge discovered that those who cut their calorie intake lost weight regardless of the diet they were on.

Pasta Alternative: Squash and Tofu Spaghetti Quickie in the Kitchen

I LOVE pasta, but I don’t like to eat SO many carbs. Instead, I have found these two fab alternatives to pasta that have super low carbs, are low in fat, and still fill you up and feel like you ate a big bowl of noodles… well, almost ;)

Green Fry: Okra, Collards, Potatoes, Fennel, Onion, Jalapeno, Garlic

Just to clarify, a green fry has nothing to do with frying food. Instead, it is a combo of anything healthy and green in your fridge that you throw into a pan and cook into one of the easiest, healthiest dishes you can make. Plus, you are cleaning out your fridge so that those veggies that you bought last weekend don’t go to waste. And here’s the best thing, your meal is a total Bites with Benefits meal and you’re only consuming about 40 calories per cup! Yes… that’s it!

Easiest Ever Quickie Meal: Franks Red Hot Buffalo Tenders

This is one of my favorite go-to dishes because it’s super easy, filled with flavor, low-fat, low-calorie, hot & spicy and budget friendly. It’s pan-poached chicken tenderloins with Franks. That’s it. Top it with some cold avocado to cut the spice, add some creaminess, and you’re good. If you want, toss them in a taco, atop a salad, or with a side of steamed veggies. It’s such a simple and tasty base meal that I eat probably way too often… hey, it’s easy and tasty. I like it that way! ;)
