Flatout Flatbread

Flatout Flatbreads (I get mine at Costco). 100 calories for a really big serving (8 or 9 fiber grams). Use them for wraps, pizzas, quesadillas, home made pita chips - endless possiblities. They really help me get enough fiber.

Shred Head

We keep a bag of shredded cabbage on hand to add a healthy kick to meals. Very good on sandwiches as it adds bulk and a good crunch (remember putting potato chips on your sandwich?) Toss a handful into a stir fry or soup. Toss a little with rice wine vinegar for a quick pickle.

Picky Eater!!!

I am a very picky eater so for me I have a few things I like such as sweet potatoes,eggs,turkey & chicken. I'm not a big fruit & veggie eater (texture is a big deal for me). So It is a challenge to try new things. Tried a pear for first time in my life!! Not too bad tasting either

Momma Was Right When She Said To Eat Your Veggies

Make an effort to get as many fruits & veggies in by lunchtime so as to reach your 8 servings daily. Put extra veggies in an omelet, make a large salad, a loaded veggie sandwich or even a nice homemade veggie soup. Even snacking on raw veggies & fruit adds up quickly & helps aid in weightloss

Special Drink...

I'm a private chef so pairing wine with food is a must, except not for me trying to lose weight! Instead I put sparkling water in a wine glass with a tiny bit of Pomegranate juice and some fresh slices of lime, lemon and orange and a few fresh berries. It's fresh and delicious!

Serving sizes

I check the serving size on chips or crackers and put that amount into individual bags, so I always eat only one serving without having to check each time or be tempted to eat more.

Slow down your eating

Slow down the speed at which you eat your food. It takes about 20 minutes before the brain tells your stomach that you are full. So if you eat in a rush you'll eat way more than the amount you need to feel full. This is why you often feel "stuffed" after you eat.
