Healthier Choices- Part 3

Well, here we are, fresh into a new year. Just about everyone I know, including myself, its focusing on healthier choices. But it just seems so unbelievably daunting, doesn’t it? If you are anything like me, you want to clean out the kitchen of all the crap and start over at the grocery store, but that is wasteful and expensive.

This week, I’m focusing on three easy things you can do to save calories now, with the food you already have. Will these three steps solve all your healthy eating problems? No. But one step in the right direction is still worth more than a step backwards!

Today’s tip, add veggies to casseroles and just about anything else with a sauce! My cream cheese chicken and rice casserole received a bag of mixed vegetables this week; I simply added it on top of the rice and before the cream cheese chicken mixture, and it added a boost of nutrition. You can add frozen veggies to pasta sauce, into egg bakes….get creative!
