Red-letter foods

You know what red-letter foods are: the ones that - if they are opened you will eat them all, or until you throw up, just because they are the foods or snacks you love....for whatever reason!

My Blender!

Having my blender and making really good tasting protein drinks helps me feel like I'm having a treat but it's good for me. I keep frozen berries of all kinds in my freezer.

Healthy Eating and Storage at Work

While I like to take leftovers to eat for lunch at work, sometimes it just doesn't work out. On those days, I'll open a can of soup that I keep in my desk along with a plastic storage container. That way I have a bowl in which to heat up my food and a lid for storage if there are leftovers afterward

When I want to eat out of stress

I found out that when I want to eat out of stress or boredom I will read. This way I am keeping my mind off of food and doing something that will reduce my stress.

Make sure each meal contains protein

I found that when I have a breakfast high in protein, I am hungry for lunch later in the day and don't scarf my food down because I'm so famished! I go for meals (within my calories) including eggs, yogurt, milk; even Lean Cuisine and Smart Ones make some yummy breakfast meals with lots of protein!

Wheat Free

Ever since I have dropped anything containing wheat or gluten my weight has started to come off a lot easier. My blood sugar has balanced. My thinking is clear. I have ten times more energy than I have ever had.

Portion control when eating at work

I usually eat breakfast and lunch at my desk, which makes portion control a bit challenging. I invested in one of the Fit'n'Fresh kits from the Spark Store and keep a small portable scale from the set in my desk drawer, along with an inexpensive set of dry and wet measuring cups.

Soup is good for the "Spark"

Progresso - Light, Southwestern Vegetable soup and other items from their light line of soups is great for high fill, low calorie additions to my meals. Pick a favorite brand, find their best nutritional options and add one with your meals.

TRY NEW FOODS!!

Healthy eating can seem boring but it doesn't have to be! Thanks to SP, I'm trying new recipes several times a week--learning to use different spices, enjoying different flavors, etc. It keeps it interesting and with all the recipes here, it's EASY, too!!

Make yourself shop only at your local organic grocer

I only shop at Trader Joe's. Compared to chain store grocery stores, their products have been instrumental in helping me remove chemicals, pesticides, bio-engineered/modified, antibiotic enhanced, etc. foods from my diet. It's easy to only shop there and feel better... Just don't shop anywhere else!
