Planning Ahead When Eating Out

Almost every restaurant has their menu online these days... so before heading out to eat, check out the menu and decide ahead of time what healthy options you have available to you. That way, you'll be less likely to be "tempted" by some favorite dish you see on the menu!

Sprouted Grain Bread May Prevent Stomach Issues

When I switched from white bread to whole grain bread I started experiencing upset stomachs. But when I tried sprouted whole grain bread instead, my stomach did not object. And another benefit is a great nutty flavor and hearty texture. I don't eat any other kind of bread now.

Pre-plan your lunches for work

I always pack my lunch and snacks for work the night before. That way I don't have to think about it when I am rushing around in the morning. It allows me to stay within my nutrition goals, and then I have plenty of healthy choices while I am work which helps me stay away from the vending machine!

Gasp

I save some calories every day for sweets or ice cream in the evening. I know, GASP! But, I don't feel deprived, and I'm still within my calorie range. And, I'm quite a healthy eater during the day.

Meal Plan

If you cannot live without it - work it in.

You don't need to feel deprived. Work in the foods you think you cannot live without - in the long run, this will keep you on track.

This is a "rest of your life" lifestyle change.

Keep Grated Carrots and Cabbage Around!

And add them to everything! They add crunch and nutrients to sandwiches, tuna salad, stews, stir fries, eggs, and a whole slew of other things!

I buy mine pre-shredded, as I'm lazy, but you definitely can DIY!
