Veggies

I found a helpful way to start eating veggies.
I went to PC.ca and there you can download and print a list of vegetables and fruits. I post that on my fridge and highlight all the ones I love. Then, when I go shopping, i make sure to get as many as possible(fresh, frozen or canned)

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

You can do anything when you have the time... but so often there is no time. So PLAN quick snacks and meals. Prepackage portions you make yourself and then freeze or put on the shelf or buy the preportioned packages. The foodtracker can be used ahead of time... not just after eating!

How to Eat Healthy and Lose Weight With... Spaghetti?

OK, not truly "spaghetti". But shiritake tofu noodles have a look, texture and taste that are fairly close to pasta noodles -- delicious! And a 4-oz serving is only 20 calories.

Changing to organic and clean foods

When ever I can I only buy whole foods. Organic and I always seek out the local Farmers markets.

Keep a healthy snack with you

Sometimes I get stuck in places or situations where I don't get to eat lunch or something else as planned. I carry a protein bar in my purse all the time. Then if I get tied up I can eat that so that I don't let myself get so hungry that I eat things I shouldn't or stuff myself.

have a treat

allow yourself a small treat daily or weekly. I never used to be able to have one of something, let alone one small of whatever. But I have found that ONE hershey kiss at bedtime gives me a special treat, i let it melt on my tongue. iLike a fancy hotel sith chocolate on the pillow!

Meal Planning

I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.

Add some protein

The more you eat earlier on, the less you eat as the day wears on, research has shown. So after your cereal, add a hard-boiled egg or a part-skim mozzarella cheese stick to keep you feeling full -- and away from that pre-lunch brownie. Saves 200 (or more)
