Genius Calorie Cutting Trick

Simple..to shed pounds, get your veggies in!  Add pureed cauliflower and squash to your classic recipes such as chicken casserole and macaroni and cheese.  By doing this you can cut as many as 357 calories from your day.  All this is according to a study at Pennsylvania State University in University Park.  When you pack in veggies in place of other high calorie ingredients it cuts your calories, says Alexandia Blatt, lead author of the study.  Another way to do this is add more sliced/chopped veggies to your meals.  So if your rice pilaf calls for one cup of veggies, try doubling it and cut back on some of the rice.  The result is great flavor with an extra boost of fiber which helps fill you up faster.
