I'm always working my recipes to keep my calories down. Mixing lean hamburger and adding ground turkey, that still keeps the flavor of the hamburger. Your guest will never know and they are half ground beef and ground turkey, a crowed pleaser as well. My husband and I lost 80lbs. For us, just changing our mind set by always revamping recipes and working ingredients with out losing flavor. So I find by sharing what we create to keep and count every calorie, fat and carb, its like a challenge. Sandwich Thins Multigrain or a lettuce wrap is what we use unless we have guest over.
