Now, if you've been reading my blog, you know that I love to cook - usually high calorie comfort food! So for lower calorie inspiration, I've been perusing Pinterest and have discovered so many incredibly creative and delicious ideas. Here are a few that are on my list to try:
Start with dessert first! "Chocolate Covered Katie" has got this recipe for No Sugar Cookie Dough Dip that has a surprise secret ingredient! That's not all she's got - her blog is has a wealth of low-cal contributions!
For a delicious alternative to the potato variety, how about these Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes from "A Good Appetite?"
"Chef In Training" is one of my favorite foodie blogs to follow. She's whipped up a Weight Watchers 6 Point Bubble Up Enchiladas! OK, my mouth is watering now!
Family friendly Baked Ziti with Spinach is a great meal to make and freeze for those days that you just don't feel like cooking, but want to stay on budget and healthy. "Skinny Taste" has got this and TONS of recipes listed by Weight Watchers Points Values!
What if you're looking to eat a whole bowl of something crunchy and salty? Try "Delighted Momma's" Baked Kale Chips! Since Weight Watchers doesn't assign Points to fruits or veggies, you can chow down on these and get some good vitamins and iron into your diet as well!
Eating right is definitely important when trying to lose weight, but the other part of the equation is exercise. On that point, I will remain Forever Frugal - Walking Is Free! Check out "Felicia's Blog" for great information about How to Burn Calories by Walking. You can walk outside when the weather is nice as it has been on these crisp autumn days, or inside of a mall during the winter months.
I need as much inspiration as I can get! Please share YOUR Frugal Diet and Exercise Ideas in the comments section below! Cheers to your health!
