Sugar vs. Water

Because of my prior dependence on "sweet drinks" when thirsty, I have come to feel like I want sweets when I am thirsty. I have gotten into a habit of drinking 8 oz of water and waiting 10 minutes before deciding that I need a snack.

Face the Nutrition Facts

When storing food in the cupboard, turn it around so that the nutrition facts are facing outward instead of a picture of the product. That way, your first thought will be "are those calories worth it?", instead of an appetizing picture that might make you lose control of your food choices.

Great Way to Substitute Applesauce for Oil!

I try to substitute applesauce for oil every time I can manage it. I buy the 1/2 cup snack sizes of unsweetened applesauce, and it is usually the exact amount I need. That way, no extra applesauce spoils in the refrigerator!

Fresh Crisp Lettuce

I hate taking the time to make a salad but I found if I cut up my lettuce ahead of time and place it in an airtight container with paper towels on the top and bottom, the lettuce stays crisp and fresh for days. Whenever I want a salad, I place a little on my plate and just add the extras!
