I found a replacement to reduced fat PB...it's called Better'N Peanut Butter - can be found at Super Targets, Bi-lo, Harris Teeter...only 100 calories and 2 fat grams for 2 tbls!!!
That's right I said only 2 fat grams...Woohoo!!
1/2 fruit and veggies, 1/4 protein, 1/4 starch
1 cup pineapple (or blueberries or strawberries)
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
2 tbsp. flax seed
2 cups water
Blend all ingredients and ENJOY!
I save a few calories for a treat at the end of the day. Tonight I had a cup of blackberries with a tbsp of raw sugar and a cup of decaf flavored tea. It satisfied my sweet tooth and the tea was warm and made me relaxed!
count calories on here in the food tracker, it wakes you up big time as to what you're eating. I was easily eating 2500 or more, and adding in drinks is why I am where I am today. Keep tracking!!! Every taste, drink etc.
The entire spring, summer, and fall season I peruse farmer's markets to get the absolutely freshest fruit and vegetables. I even go pick my own strawberries!
I tried a new quick meal tonight for dinner. I reheated 1/2 c. cooked brown rice with 1/2 c. rinsed and well drained canned black beans. When it was hot I topped it with 2 tablespoons of medium hot salsa, and it made a tasty meal with some roasted asparagus spears and a tossed salad.
30 minute shows actually help me SLOW DOWN. Time meal to begin & end with show.
Eating alone & in silence = amplifies the aloneness.
I eat faster to be through and out of the silence. Emptiness, missing people cycle that sends me to Emotional Eating.
Pick up a block of Tempeh, a soy-based meat substitute. Cut it into small chunks and steam it for 5-8 minutes. You can chill it and add to "Chicken Salad" or any type of chicken casserole. No animal products, no cholesterol, low fat.
My favorite so far is the starbucks frappucinno "anyway you want it" special going now at "Happy Hour"--3pm-5pm--at least where I'm living it is. I had strawberry with lots of ice and coffee nut syrup-- all SUGARFREE!!!Delicious!!
