Let me tell you a volumetric trick. When high bulk low calorie food (salad!) is added to something typical and appetizing, you feel satisfied. If you’re in the mood for Mexican but in a super hurry, buy a low fat frozen quesadilla entre. So much of the seasoning is done for you, and precise portions are key. A lot of us need help in this area.
While you microwave according to directions, saute some mushrooms in a butter-sprayed pan, insert them, and then serve it over a big bowl of chopped Romaine lettuce and a sliced tomato.
