Ice Cream Serving

Use custard cups to serve up ice cream. I have always struggled with overeating icecream, so I just wouldn't eat it. Now, rather than deprive myself, I can't fit much more than a proper serving of icecream in a custard cup. Now I can enjoy my favorite treat without fear!

Anyone can make a container garden

I go to school and work full time, live in the city with only a tiny deck (no time, no space). I put up a 3' deck railing planter and planted beets and soybeans! Since it hangs on the railing, it takes up no floor space, and it is motivating me to care more about local food!

Spaghetti for them, cabbage for me!

My family loves pasta, and I don't want to deprive them just because I'm not eating it these days. I make cabbage for myself and eat it like spaghetti, with tomato sauce.

Smaller plates

When trying to maintain a healthy eating regimen,I find that it helps to use smaller plates. You can't fit as much food on a smaller plate so you eat less. Just make sure that you don't try and overfill a smaller plate. The goal is to make your mind believe you're eating the same amount

Delicious no salad with no dressing

I just discovered that I can "dress" a salad with a couple of ounces of feta cheese and lots of tomatoes. I can have a big salad (that's really tasty) for only a couple of hundred calories. The feta and the juices from the tomatoes make a really amazing taste together!

Split your breakfast

If you have to wake up early you might see yourself skipping breakfast. There is no need to. Split your breakfast. Have part at home/car/train and the rest in the office. E.g. if you have yoghurt with cereal and a slice of bread, take either one of them along. Two eating moment no extra calories!
