Fasting

Some times I fast for one meal once a week. It helps me know that I CAN control my snack habit. emoticon Also love trying new veggies too.

Set my alarm across the room

To help me get up and go to the gym in the morning, I set my alarm and place it all the way across the room. I also leave my exercise clothes beside my bed. When my alarm goes off I have to get up to shut it off so since I am already up I just get ready and go right to the gym :)

Clean up

I clean as I go when cooking then when I'm done, there isn't too much to clean! When done with a pot-served on a dish--either soak it or clean it--one less pot at the end!!

Batch Cook

Cook up a big batch of SOMETHING when you have time. I particularly like things like soups and stews. You can freeze some and keep some in the fridge - that way, there is always something healthy at hand!

Try something new

I'm finding different ways to cook things that I don't particularly care for to help me get veggies into my diet.

Love for the Slow Cooker

Fire and language are nice, but the greatest invention of all time is the slow cooker.

CHANGE HOW YOU COOK YOUR VEGETABLES

I had to change how I cooked and ate to maintain my weight loss. Gone are the casseroles and mushroom soup sauces and cheese sauces that drowned my vegetable dishes. I added variety too! No more boring mashed potatoes and gravy and peas!

Prepared Meals

In order to simplify meal preparation, I keep several often used veggies chopped and stored in 5 cup containers in the fridge. When I begin a recipe, it's great to have the onion, celery, bell peppers, etc all ready to go!

Make extra food at dinner for lunch tomorrow!

This is one of my best healthy eating and cooking tips. Every time I cook dinner, I want the time and effort put into it to last. So I double my recipes in order to have enough for dinner that night and leftovers for at least the next day's lunches.
