Pamm's Food Finds

 
 
"Tell me what to eat, and I'll eat it." If only it were that easy--having someone just tell you what to eat. The problem is, we have too many choices and not enough of the healthy choices.

I find to stay on track, not only with a diet to lose weight, but with making healthy choices, I must set up my kitchen for my success. I cannot keep chocolate and potato chips around or I will eat them. I'm definately a Cookie Monster, so keeping Oreos and chocolate chip cookies on hand is out of the question for me.

Being home all day long with total access to my kitchen and a requirement to feed hungry toddlers doesn't' help my situation, either. Being required to cook really adds to my temptation.

If I am going to have a successful diet and/or healthy eating habits I set myself up for success by stocking my kitchen with easy to grab, healthy choices. So, what's in my kitchen?

Quick Meals and Snacks
Quick Pizza

Use an English muffin, rice cake, pita or tortilla for a crust. Spread with spaghetti sauce and sprinkle low fat cheese. Top with chopped vegetables. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Quesadilla

Sprinkle low fat cheese on a tortilla. Add a dash of seasoned salt. If desired, you can add some salsa or chopped vegetables. For a more hearty meal, add chopped chicken or ground beef or turkey. You can either warm in the microwave, fry in a skillet (use cooking spray), or heat at 400 degrees in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

Scramble Bowl

Crack one large egg into a microwave safe bowl and beat with a fork. Tear up half a slice of lite cheese and add into the beaten egg. Microwave around 90 seconds. Salt and pepper (and ketchup?) to taste.

Turkey Roll-Up

Place sliced turkey breast on top of a flour tortilla or Flat-Out Wrap. Spoon on some Dijon mustard and roll it up.

Banana Bowl

Slice a banana into a bowl and cover with a blanket of Kashi Puffs Cereal. You'll need a spoon and something to drink.

Big Salad

Put a bagged salad blend in a large salad bowl. Add chopped, cooked chicken or turkey, shredded cheese, imitation bacon bits, and your favorite low calorie dressing.

Hot Pastrami

Fry Budding-type (thin) pastrami in a little spray butter or cooking spray until heated through. Serve with mustard on reduced calorie hamburger buns, bread, pita or wrap. Add a side of pickles.

English Muffin Broil

Place a toasted English muffin on a cookie sheet. On one side place some low-fat lunch meat, or a crumbled slice of cooked bacon. On the other side place a slice of low-fat cheese. Broil in the oven until heated through and cheese is melted. Can add a squirt of mustard, Heinz 57, or a dollop of low calorie mayo.

Muffin Cluck

Toast an English muffin. Put one egg (fried in Pam or microwaved) between the muffin slices with a squirt of mustard.

Ready Ahead Chicken

For quick diced or chopped chicken, buy a rotisserie chicken at the store and debone when you get home (after you've had a slice or two for supper). I store in portion-sized baggies in the freezer. It's inexpensive and fast. I add chicken to pasta or rice dishes, salads, or make sandwiches or tacos out of it.
