Aged Balsamic Vinegar - it's worth it

I highly recommend finding some REALLY good AGED Balsamic Vinegar and using it for salad dressing. I know it can get expensive, but we are worth it and the taste is so good you don't need olive oil to make an awesome salad. There are flavored ones as well. This is NOT your everyday vinegar.

Pasta for Breakfast

Sometimes when I wake up and my tummy is upset or I know I have plenty of time for breakfast, I eat something unconventional. To me, breakfast just means breaking the fast, not necessarily eating oatmeal or egg whites but whatever I like. Later I may even eat cereal for dinner!

Add Nuts to Boost Protein!

I add chopped nuts or ground flax seed to oatmeal, cream of wheat or cold cereal to add healthy fats and boost protein and fiber in the morning. Easy and tastes great!

Smaller Sized Pieces = Slower Eating

I have found that cutting up my fruits and veggies, and meat when possible, into smaller pieces forces me eat more slowly because of the smaller bites I have to take and chew. The small pieces are also a visual reminder to me to slow down when eating.
