Healthier Alternative to Ice Cream is Frozen Peanut Butter

Recently saw on Dr. Oz that he recommends frozen peanut butter as a healthier alternative to ice cream.

I have also heard that mashing/blending frozen bananas is also a good "base" for making flavored ice cream without the fat.

Dress your salad

Instead of using salad dressing, dress your salad with freshly squeezed lemon juice. It's delicious!

Food is fuel

Eat when you're hungry then just eat till you're NOT hungry; (NOT till you're full). Remember the saying: Eat to live, don't live to eat! Sooner than later....this will be you....

Invest in Small plasic children sized bowls...

At most stores such as Target, Walmart, etc...they usually offer plastic wear in sets for pretty cheap, $1 or so...usually around the summer time. I purchase the small ones at are equivalent to 1 cup, I use these for cereal, snacks, even my main course at a meal, u get the right amount every time!

Proportioned plates

You can buy plates that have faint lines showing you how much of each food category you need per meal. Great to start with, when you are used to eating your protein as the largest portion.

Eating Slowly Helps

Eating slowly gives my stomach time to signal my brain that I am full. I don't eat nearly as much.

Sweetening

I really don't like the taste of artificial sweeteners, so I checked out the nutritional info on Berry Sugar (a very fine white granulated sugar). Only 15 calories per tsp! Because it's so fine, even 1/2 a tsp goes really far. I had some on my strawberries this morning!

3 Button Mushrooms?! Works for Me & I Get My Veggies!!!

I like snacking! I've found that when I wait too long and I'm hungry-there goes the cal.on just SNACKS! So, one day I had 3 button mushrooms after getting home from the grocery store and they FILLED ME UP! I got hungry later in the day & ate the mushrooms and a little snack-crackers-but LESS of it!

Drink Iced Coffee

If you're like me a good latte is one of those things that you look forward to. Switch your hot latte for an iced to shave 20-60 calories off your indulgence. It's also a sweeter treat for the summer months! Nothing better than an iced coffee with friends in the bright sunshine!
