10 Simple Weight Loss Tips & Tricks!

Posted by , April 20th, 2016

Did you know cutting out just 100 calories a day can help you to lose 10 pounds a year? While that may not seem like much, it can be all it takes to kick start a healthier daily routine!

By Diana Fransis, Retail Dietitian Supervisor

Here are some easy tricks to cut calories daily.

1. Choose popcorn over chips. A single serving of chips has over 150 calories, but you can have five cups of air-popped popcorn for only 100 calories!
2. Try swapping egg whites instead of a whole egg in the morning. Three eggs (egg whites only) comes in at 100 calories, whereas three large eggs can come up to 215 calories.
3. Instead of a bagel (300 calories and up) go for a whole grain English muffin, which has only 130 calories.
4. Use nonstick spray instead of oil. One tablespoon of oil can pack up to 120 calories, while nonstick cooking spray is practically calorie free.
5. Say no to sugary beverages and choose water or seltzer when possible.
6. Swap out whole milk with skim for your coffee or cereal in the morning.
7. Craving chocolate? Swap out chocolate ice cream for a low-fat chocolate pudding to save upwards of 70 calories or more.
8. Love the taste of peanut butter? Try the powdered version! It provides the same taste without all the calories. Stir it into a smoothie or add to muffins, pancakes, pretty much anything.
9. Decrease alcohol intake by one drink and there goes 100 calories right there.
10. Use cauliflower! Cauliflower is a great swap in recipes that need a creamy texture or a doughy feel. Did you know you can blend up the veggie and swap it for rice or even pizza dough? Here is a delicious recipe provided by our culinary dietitian!

Easy and Flavorful “Baked” Apples

Posted by , December 19th, 2011

I’m not a breakfast person. I just don’t like to eat early in the morning and heavy foods make me feel sluggish and slow.

It’s a problem because, as they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I need something in my stomach that will give me the fuel I need to get through the morning but that won’t make me feel icky. Read More »

Imported Specialty Pasta From ShopRite

I have a confession: I don’t always go into the grocery store with a plan. I try to menu plan, make a list of the things I need and then stick to the list.

But you know how it is. One of the kids gets sick or work gets crazy or the basement floods or you’re just too tired. Sometimes I find myself in the store with no idea what I’m making for dinner that week. Read More »

Summer may be ending, but grilling season isn’t over yet … at least not at my home!  We grill year-round on our small charcoal grill.  We love cooking outdoors on charcoal because it’s fast, it imparts a smoky flavor on our food, and it keeps the mess out of our small kitchen.   Read More »
