If you're anything like me, you like to cook and chew. This means that as you're cooking you're also eating. The thing is that a bite here and a bite there (plus that glass of wine) can quickly add up until you’ve consumed a meal’s worth of calories before you've even sat down for dinner. Oops, guilty as charged, especially when I am baking dessert or boiling pasta. So instead of cooking and chewing on your dinner-in-progress, keep your mouth occupied with something else. Chewing gum always does the trick for me but if I'm absolutely starving, I cut up some bite sized veggies to eat as I prepare my main meal and treat them as my appetizer.
Do you cook and chew? If so, what do you do to avoid it?
