I find that by adding 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon to the oatmeal as it is cooking with a Tbs. of dried cranberries (Ocean Spray Cranaisons) I can eliminate the salt entirely.
Place dressing, pancake syrup etc in a saucer and dip the food one bit at a time. You end up using less but still get the taste You want with each bite without drowning Your food. With dressing dipping the fork into the dressing before each bit also helps to give You the taste You like.
Add lemons, limes, orange slices, cuccumber, or mint to water to make it taste super yummy!
I have a horrible sweet tooth so I buy a 3 pack of Russell Stover's Sugar Free Turtles and eat one when I have an attack. They taste just as good as the sugar full ones.
When I have food cravings and I know I'm really not hungry, I brush and floss my teeth....who likes to eat after you have clean teeth!
Drinking a cup of fat free/skim milk with breakfast or a snack helps amp up the protein and calcium for your day.
I read a sparkle people article and started reaching for 5 fruits and 5 vegetables a day
I adapted a Jillian Michaels quote to help me overcome emotional eating and start eating better. The new quote is:
"Nutrition, to me, isn't about calories, fat grams, and carbs; it's about taking my power back."
Now I make empowered food choices. I no longer feel like food overpowers...
