Turning Wine Into Water

Drink your water out of a wine glass. It makes a "chore" seem fun and a little naughty. Mix it up with sparkling water for a fizzy treat! I find anything goes down easier if it's in a wine glass!

break the breakfast routine

I love breakfast bars but most recipes and store bought ones are loaded with fats. This week I discovered that just a bit of peanut butter with some total cranberry pomegranate cereal and a little bit of applesauce has the same taste. It's nutritious too!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Make some yummy pumpkin pie pudding. All you have to do is take 1 vanilla pudding cup, or make fat free, sugar free instant pudding and divide into 1/2 cup servings.

Date Plate - Eating out at Restaurants

Next time you are out at a restaurant instead of getting 2 meals, pick something you will both enjoy and get a "Date Plate" Most restaurant portion sizes are 2, sometimes even 3 times the correct size. Share your next meal, and make eating out a little less guilty! Enjoy!

Drinking Water...sort of.

I hate water because basically, it tastes like water. So to get my 8 glasses in a day I've bought into the flavored bottles to take on walks and at home always keep some lipton tea mix packets around. It also helps me avoid going back to soda!
