Face the Nutrition Labels Out

When storing prepackaged food containers in the pantry or fridge, face the Nutrition Labels out. That way the nutrition facts are immediately available as you begin looking for what to eat in the pantry or fridge.

Try gardening

Even if it one tomato or pepper plant in a pot on your porch, give it a try. Gardening and eating fresh vegetables is addictive. Start small and build on that from year to year or just stop at one. Happy gardening to all!!

Great Recipes from Cooking Light

At the same time I started Sparkpeople, I subscribed to Cooking LIght Magazine. There are tons of great recipes in these magazines! Every recipe I've tried has been delicious. Even my formerly picky 9-year-old has liked everything I've made. The food is absolutely wonderful - restaurant worthy!

A great low calorie snack

One of my favorite low calorie snacks is frozen pineapple chunks. They sell them at target. I find them great to munch on. They take awhile to eat & taste great.

Better (for me) Oatmeal

No more butter and brown sugar for me! I switched to steel cut oats made with Vanilla Almond milk.

Freeze Bananas

I don't like bananas once they "over-ripen". So I freeze my bananas if I can't eat them in time. Frozen bananas are a great treat and they work well in a fruit smoothy too!
