1. Eat Soup Before Meals: Starting your meal with a broth-based soup can help you feel fuller faster, reducing calorie intake during the main course. Soups are low in calories but high in water content, which increases satiety.

2. Use Vinegar in Your Meals: Adding vinegar to meals can help control blood sugar levels and increase feelings of fullness. It slows down stomach emptying, keeping you satisfied longer.

3. Keep Healthy Snacks Visible: Place healthy snacks like fruits and nuts in clear containers on your kitchen counter to encourage healthier snacking habits.

4. Flavour with Citrus Instead of Salt: Use lemon or lime juice to flavour dishes instead of salt. It enhances taste without extra calories or sodium.

5. Chew Gum While Cooking: Chewing sugar-free gum while cooking prevents mindless snacking.

6. Use Scented Candles or Essential Oils: Scented candles or oils with vanilla or cinnamon can curb appetite.

7. Cook with Coconut Oil: Coconut oil boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss.

8. Eat in a Well-Lit Room: Well-lit rooms make you more aware of food choices.

9. Add Fibre to Your Meals: Increase fibre to feel fuller for longer.

10. Practise Portion Control with Divided Plates: Divided plates help with portion control.

Cooking at home allows you to control the ingredients and portion sizes, reducing the intake of unhealthy additives and oversized portions often found in restaurant meals. Start by planning your meals for the week and creating a detailed shopping list to avoid impulse buys. This not only ensures you have everything you need for nutritious meals but also helps you stick to your budget by avoiding unnecessary purchases.

Switching to generic or store-brand products is another simple way to save money without sacrificing quality. Many store brands offer the same nutritional value as name brands at a fraction of the cost. Compare labels and prices to make smarter choices that benefit both your wallet and your health. By being mindful of these small changes, you can create a more cost-effective and health-conscious kitchen environment."
