When shopping for groceries, stick to the ouside perimeter of the store... this is were all of the good, unprocessed foods tend to be, like milk and fruits and veggies!
I love the vegetable steamers you do in the microwave. Our local Wal-Mart carries different brands. I work long hours and I can have a hot mea1 ready in minutes. The rice and broccoli and mixed vegetables are great.
Vacationing is not a death to diets! Stick to a plan, make smart choices, bring healthy snacks, and when you can't online log, a notebook works just fine!
I add 1/4 scoop chocolate whey protein powder to 4 egg whites, and 1/4 c oatmeal...
Keep a measuring cup in your cereal container. Most cereal bowls can hold two or more cups. Actual serving size of most cereals is 0.75 -1 cup.
When I got gestational diabetes, I became scrupulous about weighing my food. But after delivery, I got lazy about my own diet. Now I'm back to weighing, measuring, and tracking my food. My life depends on it, and weighing helps. My healthy 19-yr-old son is proof positive!
Good eating habits start with the food we choose at the grocery store. Make a list and stick to it. When you get to the register, do a quick inventory to see what percentage in your cart is junk. Put it back.
When I am making homemade chicken 'noodle' soup I sub the noodles for a good few handful of beansprouts instead. It looks virtually the same but it can cut some calories.
I learned about the chocolate Cheerios from reading these secrets and I LOVE them! Today I picked up a box of Banana Nut Cheerios and I think I like them even MORE! They remind me of a banana nut muffin! I now have my Grandson and Husband hooked. Hmmm...maybeI should buy stock in General Mills...
