I keep an ample supply of fat free greek yogurt that I grab when I get home from work. I used to be ravenous when I get home and would eat "whatever" but proper planning is the key! The greek yogurt is high in protein and rather filling...quite a bonus!
I get bored with the same foods at the same times so switching them up can be fun. Soup & sandwich for breakfast, veggie-cheese frittata for lunch, whole-grain, lowfat pancakes with fruit for dinner. My family loves breakfast for dinner while heartier meals at breakfast keeps my hunger at bay.
I remember thinking hummus was for weird people years ago, LOL. I got brave and tried it and have been hooked since. You have to make sure you get a good brand and not one that has a lot of artificial ingredients. You may be surprised that you get hooked on it and it becomes a staple in your diet
I havent used mayo since I started spark always loaded my sandwiches with it now i use mustard, fat free italian dressing or honey mustard and still looking for other low cal Items to use. I also dont use butter on toast I use 1/2 tbls peanut butter per slice cook w/ pam or olive oill or bake broil.
My kids loved this and it's a great snack or treat. Take fresh strawberries or grapes, wash them well, store in air-tight bags and freeze. I usually add a 1/4-1/2 cup per bag; the kids can grab and go! You can also use berries, bananas, kiwi, oranges or pineapple.
i eat a variety of healthy,tasty foods.i enjoy foods such as mangoes, bananas, chickpeas, other fresh fruits and vegetables. i do eat some meat. this helps me to stay on track and to keep the weight i lost off.
I plan my menus for the week, shop only from my list, and cook all of my healthy meals on the weekends so my DH and I have healthy lunches and dinners ready when we are during the week. I add recipes to my nutrition tracker and track my food every day so I stay within my limits.
I used Xtra sugarless gum to help me overcome my chocolate addiction.
I crave something sweet after dinner and to avoid the extra calories I drink Good Earth Tea. It is naturally sweet so it satisfies my craving with 0 calories. It has become my "favorite" dessert. And they sell it at Costco in packs.
I found a substitute for the milk shake habit that I was often heading to the deli for--applesauce. I keep a jar in the refrig now, and I put some into a glass and then drink it through a thick straw. The texture is the same, and I'm comfortable with it.....less calories for sure.
