Vinegar

Instead of salad dressing, try pouring a little plain Balsamic Vinegar on your salad. It's only about 5 calories per Tbsp & No Fat! And it's very tasty. :-)
(It's also good poured over sliced strawberries & grilled veggies)
Added bonus...vinegar can help reduce cholesterol

Getting 8 cups of water a day

Drink one cup of water before a meal, and one cup of water after the same meal. It adds up to 2 cups with breakfast, 2 with lunch, 2 with a snack, and 2 with dinner, all added up to 8 glasses a day! You'll meet the goal no problem! ^_^

Breakfast

I used to never eat breakfast, partly because I couldn't be bothered thinking about what to eat. Now I make the same thing every day - oatmeal. It's a bit boring, but I dress it up with cinammon/vanilla/nutmeg/raisins, and I don't miss breakfast and sabotage my efforts.

Sushi is a great, healthy meal!

Sushi is a great alternative to fatty, high calorie meals. Believe it or not, it isn't that hard to make. Try making Cones or sashimi if rolls intimidate you. Temaki is the cone and is more commonly eaten in Japan.

Pre-Washed Baby Spinach

I keep a box of prewashed baby spinach in the fridge. If I'm having a can of soup, I throw in a couple fistfuls. Same thing with pasta sauce, scrambled eggs, and I also use it for sandwiches instead of lettuce. Great way to get iron and a serving of veggies!

Making food taste good and healthy

Your food can taste delicious and still continue to be healthy by using Mrs. Dash seasoning, and herbs like onion powder and garlic powder. I love the table blend to put on my chicken.
