Same food; different presentation

The basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and cheese can be presented so that it appears to be quite different meals.
Chop up your veggies and bacon and heat in skillet, pour over the scrambled eggs, put lid on top, put on low for 20 mins is a fritata. Add cheese at the end of cooking.
Or line a muffin tin with cooked strip of bacon, add the scrambled eggs, bake for 20 mins at 400 -- now you have a breakfast muffin. Top with cheese.
Or keep it simple and just scramble the eggs and bacon

Exploring Super Foods using Sparkrecipes

When I come across foods that are so-called super foods, I go immediately to Sparkrecipes to find ways to use them. The latest super foods are quinoa, chia seed and kale. I've never cooked with those foods, so it's a new culinary adventure. It's great that I have a husband that will try anything new! emoticon

Shredded Parmesan vs shredded cheddar

Parmesan has about 30 less calories per 4 Tablespoons, and half the fat. For me it's a better choice for an omelet.
Also I've noticed that already shredded cheddar frequently is coated with something that has carbs.

Never beat yourself

Never tell yourself you made a mistake, you really just gave your body a greater challenge and your mind more motivation to work harder in the gym! Calling yourself out on double snacking or what not will only bring you down and ruin your mood with your friend or family when really ther is nothing you can do but to work harder in the gym and/or let it go. Stay Positive! :)

Hypnosis

When I decided that I had to lose weight and get healthier I had several visits with a hypnotist. We worked on helping me to commit to healthy eating most of the time, tracking what I ate, staying at my calorie goal and moving every day. This is a lifestyle change that I've stuck with since October 2011 and down 80 pounds. emoticon

Asian Hot Pot is easy to do at home

I like that Asian hot pot means you can eat for hours and nibble on small pieces of food, and large veggie portions and the leftovers are soup for lunches.

The hot pot pan was only $40 at my asian market that also sells the specially sliced shabu-shabu meats.

Nutritious and frugal

cocoa/chocolate packets- use half- and save the rest for later in the day!

I discovered Carnation Instant Breakfast packets at the gym when they gave them away for free in the locker room. I happened to have a 16.9 oz bottled water and shook it up on my way to my car. I felt great after! I only buy two boxes/year. One of the variety pack and one lower sugar. So... when i'm below my goal of 6 cups of water/day- i mix half a packet and the water is down in a minute and I'm saving 1/2 the calories. I personally think we pee out most the added nutrients.

eat lots of veggies before going food shopping

Just that. You're full, so hopefully no impulse buy and you are full with the right kind of food.

Hot Lemonade

I love coffee but am not a tea drinker and know it's not a great idea to drink coffee right before bed but I do love a hot drink in the evening so I came up with a caffeine free alternative. I squeeze out the juice of a lemon (a Meyer lemon is best if you can find it). I add boiling water and calorie free sweetener. This hot lemonade is very satisfying on a cold winter night.

Weekend Cooking

Cook several meals for the upcoming week. I cook at least 2-3 different meals (and usually 2-3 of each meal and put extras in freezer) for the up coming week and all you have to do is add your veggies!
