Breakfast

I discovered a new and healthy breakfast that not only taste great but it is healthy too. I mixed 1 packet of Plain oatmeal and 4oz. of Unsweetened applesauce together. It was healthy and it filled me up for hours afterwards.

Up Your Whole Grains

I found that by adding more whole grains, particularly with pasta & bread, I feel full longer & don't snack as much as I used to.

More Fiber

I have been adding more fiber to my diet. I have even added it to my nutrition tracker. I aim for 35 grams per day. I try to get my fiber from both soluble and insoluble sources

Freezing grapes

I have found that frozen grapes are a great treat. We don't even refrigerate them anymore. I rinse them and they go straight to the freezer! Try it ! I think you'll love it! And... no waste if you don't get them eaten right away!

Carrying a Sliced Apple without turning brown

When I travel, I prefer eating sliced apples. So before I leave, I use a apple corer/slicer. Then I put a rubber band (like from asparagus) around the apple keeping the slices in their original place. This holds the apple together all day and prevents the slices from turning brown without additives.

Freezing, walnuts, almonds...

I usually not able to eat as much nuts and I like to freeze them for future use. Place them in a freezer zip-lock bag For baking, or eating...freezing keeps them longer.

I found a new item to eat when a chocolate craving comes. Cookie Crisp cereal!! The chocolate chip has only 100 calories, 1 gram of fat in a 3/4 cup!! This really helped me Saturday when I wanted chocolate and the 3/4 cup was enough!!

Freeze Old Bananas

We used to let a lot of bananas ROT and then we would toss them. But now , once they get ripe enough, I just freeze them. They are great in smoothies or, just sliced frozen banana is a great dessert if you mash them up a bit. It tastes just like an ice cream treat to me.
