Is your resolution to lose weight?

Is your New Year’s resolution to lose weight? Didn’t you have that same resolution last year? So, what are you going to do differently? Are you going to limit beverages that have calories, exercise more, and cook more at home? Great! Depending on the recipe, some home-cooked meals are laden with fat and calories so try these two tricks I use which cut the calories down and still taste good:

  1. For stir-fried vegetables, use only 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil in your skillet and stir constantly. When the oil is absorbed, add ¼ cup of coconut aminos (which is like a light soy sauce, but more flavorful and less salty) and cover with lid for 3-5 minutes on medium heat; this steams the veggies. When the coconut aminos are absorbed, add ¼ cup of water and cover again. Serve with your grilled, baked or steamed protein of choice.
  2. For baked vegetables, use only 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a glass rectangular pan and toss. Cover with aluminum foil. Cook in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Take off foil and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Stir. Cook another 5 minutes or until edges are slightly crispy and serve with your grilled, baked or steamed protein of choice.
