Egg and Spinach Scramble for Breakfast

Starting my day with this simple recipe, sets the tone for better choices throughout the day. The basic recipe starts with 1/3 - 1/2 C. eggwhites and 1 C baby spinach. Add fresh or leftover veggies, sauteed in spray oil. I like zucchini/summer squash, mushrooms, onion, sweet red/yellow peppers. Add some type of lean meat (like turkey breast) - 1 to 2 oz. chopped. Other great additions, pico de gallo, black olives, or parmesan cheese. Any combination makes a great start for your day.

Follow food plan and avoid cravings

I'm in maintenance but still cravings and overeating bothered me. I learned that making a food plan and sticking to it+ eating everything slowly, mindfully and sitting down prevents cravings.

more veggies and whole grains

2 secrets - I took large bags of frozen vegetables into individual steamer bags with just 2 cups each - you can find these near the plastic sandwich bags in most stores. That way I can pull out a bag and make a serving batch quickly with no waste. (you could do one cup instead)

On Hand

I keep many different kinds of frozen vegetables on hand so I don't get sick of the same thing. Frozen veggies don't go bad and are more convenient than fresh. I do buy fresh in season. I live alone and had to learn how to have good choices on hand and not have to throw unused/spoiled food away.

Snacks at the ready.

I keep a small tray of measured snacks in the fridge for those moments when "I just have to eat!" Right now I have a bag with a few carrots and celery sticks, 2 bags of walnuts (1/4 cup each), and 2 packages of roast beef (2 oz each). I found some mini bagels at 100 calories each and have cheese sticks on hand. This is keeping me sane, somewhat!! emoticon

my go to snack foods when I get hungry (especially at night)

I try water first, wait twenty minutes, do something different, and then if I am still hungry I grab dense calorie foods like almonds, sunflowers and craisens to eat. I use the STOP program , I Select, Taste, Observe, Pause while eating. This way I can really enjoy my portion. Like always I stay faithful to staying within my calorie limit. emoticon

Stocking up on produce the inexpensive way

I recently re-joined a produce co-op in my area. I have also learned about a local "produce rescue" that allows the public to pay $10 for and shop for up to 60 lbs. of produce! I had no idea these options were out there. In addition to being inexpensive ways of buying produce, it rather "forces" me to get creative and find new recipes for healthy foods.

Eat Mindfully

Eat consciously and calmly, focusing on the flavours and textures of the food. With an attitude of gratitude and appreciation slowly savour every mouthful emoticon

Make a "Middle of the Store" shopping list to shop sensibly.

I have a hard time planning meals and making a shopping list because what I've planned for may turn out to be too expensive, or I unexpectedly find another (healthy!) option that sounds better than what I planned. However, mindless wandering ends in disaster! Instead, I let myself wander the perimeter of the store, where even impulse buys will be healthy, but make a specific list for items I need from the center aisles. It gives my more freedom when I shop, but still keeps me from buying cookies!!
