Snacking

Spend some time making fruits and vegetables easily accessible. As soon as possible after bringing your produce home, wash, cut up, and store in clear containers. You (and your family) are more likely to reach for these ready-to-eat healthy choices. I also found we have much less spoilage.

10 rasberries
10 blackberries
4 Trader Joe non pareils- cut in half

Mix together in a bowl- EAT.

Total calories - roughly 165- per my labels, etc.

Rinse Veggies/Beans From Cans!

A 30 to 45-second rinse under cold, running tap water gets rid of anywhere from 35 to 40 % of sodium in canned beans and veggies.

Snack on Suckers

When you're stuck in an office and just need something sweet, grab a sucker. They're not super low in calories, but they take a long time to eat and keep your mouth busy. As a former smoker, I have a serious oral fixation and this works great to get me though my afternoon slump. Plus no mess!

Salads Go BETTER With FAT-FREE Dressings For ME!!!!

I LOVE to eat a prepared salad with at least 3 or more veggies! Restaurants serve them, BUT WATCH OUT for the dressings!The dressings offered are usually HIGH IN FAT! It makes NO SENSE to eat a healthy salad with an UNHEALTHY DRESSING! [I DON"T LIKE Italian dressing or vinegar-types or lemon].

It's okay to throw away!

I was brought up to always clean my plate. Throwing food away was completely unacceptable. I have even found myself eating the leftover food off my kids' plates to not waste. NO MORE! I now live by the motto that it's okay to throw things away if I am full or if I don't like something.

Tasty Vegetables

While grilling meat, toss some veges into a grilling pan (mine looks like a wok with holes in it) and cook side by side. Saves time, doesn't heat up the kitchen and adds a nice toasty flavor to your veges.
