Wash it...

Take your temptation of choice to the kitchen sink and run it under the water from the faucet for a minute. If it's still there when a minute is up eat it.

NO

A successful loser said to say NO to unhealthy, fattening foods at social events. I thought people would notice if I put a big N on 1 lens and an O on the other. So I decided to carry a worry stone, a smooth stone, with the word NO printed on in in my pocket or purse.

Fooling Hubby with Veggies.

I disguise veggies like cauliflower by mashing it in with potatoes (no different taste). I also mashed parsnips with carrots and now he eats them. Try mixing a new veggie with a veggie that they like, in order to make them eat it.

Beans, Greens, and Grains

For a quick and super-healthy meal, microwave one bag of frozen mixed veggies, then add one can of beans (any type, drained and rinsed), one cup of cooked brown rice or quinoa, and one can of tomatoes, + spices. A healthy and filling meal for two people, or one person with leftovers for lunch!

A weird but satisfying snack

When I am starving - but need to keep myself under control - I pop a small yam in the microwave. With some butter "spray" and pepper - it is filling, sweet, and energy building....

Premade lunches

If you pre make your lunch the night before, put your keys in the refrigerator with your lunch. You won't be able to get to work without your keys and when you remember where they are, you will remember your lunch too.

Night Before Reminder

We know this, but prepare your lunch and snacks the night before, preferably when you're in the kitchen making dinner. You're more apt to grab healthier foods if you don't have to worry about morning rush. You won't be tempted to go fast food if it's right there. Just don't forget it in the morning.
