These 3 easy steps can save you anywhere from 100-200 calories.
- When making hamburgers just use half of the beef. Instead mix 1.5 cups finely chopped mushrooms with half a pound of lean ground beef and serve it in place an all-beef patty. This simple act will save you about 100 calories.
- If you think all soups are the same, think again. By trading the milky or creamy soups, like chowders, for a soup with a tomato base or clear broth, like vegetable soup, you can save yourself about 100-200 calories per 12 ounces.
- Trade in your wineglass. Instead of using the larger bowl shaped wine glasses try using a slimmer champagne flute to help with portion control when drinking. You will feel like you are drinking the same amount but you will be cutting 100 calories.
