Chocolate Cravings

I discovered the Jello Chocolate Mousse Temptations - near the other Jello items in the dairy section. They are just 60 calories and yummy! They satisfy my chocolate cravings without making a huge dent in my claorie intake.

Counting Calories

If your tracking your food intake, track it in grams. It is so easy to make mistakes by guesstimating portion sizes such as (large,medium, small or cup). If your looking to lose weight, or gain muscle this is where you need to make the most emphasis.

Eating at work!

If I have an early start to my day, I try to remember to organize my lunch and snacks the night before and stick them all in a bag in the fridge so I can just grab it and go!

veggies and dip

A few days ago I bought precut veggies, (only because they were on sale). I made a light dip last night, and this morning was able to put some into a smaller container portion out veggies and go. I also grabbed a V8 low sodium to help get the veggies my body is craving!

Spread my calories throughout the day

We're all different, but for me, the hardest time to control my eating -- both what I eat as well as portion control -- is after work if I skimped on breakfast and/or lunch. By tracking, I have learned that I need to evenly spread my calories throughout the day.

Ranch Dressing

I LOVE ranch dressing, but its one of the worst calorie & fat offenders. Many years ago I discovered the perfect alternative. Its from Trader Joe's & its called Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, you can find it in their refrigerated section next to the salads. I believe 2tbsp is 30 cals!

Staying On Track When Eating Out

My husband and I split a single entrée when we eat out. We save money and calories, and you can't eat the whole plate even if you want to!

Protein Up

Meet your daily requirement of protein! It seems I never have trouble meeting fat and carb requirements but protein is elusive. I bought protein powder and enjoy protein smoothies with frozen fruit and skim yogurt after the gym!

Fruit to go!

At least once a day, I have to drive the kids somewhere, so I make it a habit to grab an apple, pear, banana or whatever I have handy for the ride. Its an easy way to help get in the 5 fruits & veggies and a healthy snack to curb hunger.

Vegetarian for a Day

My husband and I have made it a point to eat vegetarian for at least one day each week (Tuesdays at our house). We used to think about eating vegetarian more often for the health benefits, but this gives us a way to remember to do it.
