Tips and tools
Here are some great tips and tricks, as well as tools that I use daily in my kitchen to help me make living a healthy lifestyle easier and enjoyable.
Track a few days in the app My Fitness Pal (see below for specific instructions on how to customize the settings and become friends with me through the app)
use a food scale to measure portions (women 4 oz or 1/2 cup protein and carbs / men 6 oz or 3/4 cup protein and carbs)
use dijon mustard container to mix salad dressing (lemon juice or vinegar, spices and mustard)
use pizza cutter for chicken, pancakes, rice cakes, anything!
I love my Vitamix for making multiple servings of smoothies, shakes, soups, desserts, sauces, hummus, etc
I love my Magic Bullet for making individual servings of protein shakes, smoothies, dressings, etc
divided containers are great for school lunches!
Rubbermaid Containers for easy stacking and storage
Soda Stream for bubbly water
Toaster oven for baking / toasting / roasting / etc smaller batches of food
Break asparagus, don’t chop
Boil eggs 12 minutes, drain, cool over ice water, peel with spoon
peel ginger with spoon
keep a scoop of protein in a Take-n-toss kids’ cup with straw in your car, just add water.
freeze muscle muffins and protein pancakes for easy grab-n-go breakfasts (toaster oven great for reheating)
pour smoothies / protein shakes into Squeez-ie Freezie pop molds for a quick grab-n-go meal
try chocolate protein powder mixed into hot coffee to make hot chocolate
PBFit - powdered peanut butter
Never throw out bananas! When they start to turn brown, peel them and stick them in the freezer. Next time you go to make a smoothie, no need to add ice cubes. Just use a frozen banana!
