Cheat Day?!

Everybody here has probably tried having a cheat day, a day where you're free to indulge (hopefully still in moderation). Of course there have been concerns about how healthy- and if cheat days are even healthy- they are. I don't agree with cheat days, I personally cannot handle doing them. But I reccomend that if you can handle having a cheat day, that you do it during the week!

Eating A sandwich

Take the top off your sandwich and just throw it away, you save at least 100 calories and the sandwich is still very good

Greek yogurt for extending salad dressings.

Use non fat greek yogurt to extend salad dressings or salsa to add volume - not fat.

Tuna

It's a phenomenal protein. Lean, healthy, portable. I could be anywhere (work, home) and eat healthy protein with good fats to help satisfy my hunger and help prevent a fast-food run.

munching

I have a terrible urge to munch on something crunchy! I used to eat chip and switched to veggies but sometimes I get tired of veggies! so I started crunching ice cubes! zero calories and it really helps with the munching motion that I seem to crave! keeps you cool in the summer too!

snack secret

I've always loved to snack, and recently my physician advised me to eat 2-3 snacks a day in addition to 3 light regular meals. Whoopee! But how to keep the calories in check? I've learned to prepare 50- calorie snacks of my favorite healthy snack foods ahead of time. Just now, I ate a 30-calorie slice of light cheese. Tonight I'm looking forward to my homemade 50-calorie trail mix baggie right before turning out the lights. And my favorite is barley mixed with sugar free strawberry syrup. Yum!

Honey Roasted Peanuts and Banana Hummus

My new favorite snack. Puree 2 cups honey roasted peanuts (or almonds) with a banana. Makes a super healthy hummus dip. Dip with celery or carrots.

First Track Then Eat

Before eating use your Spark Tracker to find out the nutritional numbers and know the calories you are about to consume. If the numbers are too high then make a different, healthier choice.

Taste and See!

We know that those who eat slow give their bodies time to realize satiety and eat less. I eat alone a lot and find this a challenge. Here are two ways I slow down:

1. Look at my bite before I put it in my mouth. Realize what it is and looks like. Be grateful for the benefit I am about to receive.

2. Chew for a count of 20-25, noting taste and texture.

I find I eat more slowly and actually enjoy what I am having.
