Eating A sandwich

Take the top off your sandwich and just throw it away, you save at least 100 calories and the sandwich is still very good

Less is More

Most foods it seems are loaded with sugar, fat, or salt. Who says everything has to be "super duper delicious". Learn to cook from scratch. Keep it simple, just use a few ingredients. Use salt free herbs & spices to flavor meals. learn to enjoy the natural flavor of a food. I use cumin for meats and chicken, paprika & pepper with lemon zest for chicken. Cook veggies and meats on low heat to carmelize and sweeten them.

I use no cheese, butter, salt , oil at all. I don't even miss it.

Carry a healthy snack at all times

I always carry a protein bar in my purse. I choose Pure Protein because it's a little lower in calories than some, about 180 depending on flavor. Things do come up where we don't get to eat as we planned and when I have this it helps fill me up and keep my protein up until I can get a regular meal

Taste and See!

We know that those who eat slow give their bodies time to realize satiety and eat less. I eat alone a lot and find this a challenge. Here are two ways I slow down:

1. Look at my bite before I put it in my mouth. Realize what it is and looks like. Be grateful for the benefit I am about to receive.

2. Chew for a count of 20-25, noting taste and texture.

I find I eat more slowly and actually enjoy what I am having.

Curbing late night hunger

One of my goals is to not eat after 7pm, however I sometimes get hungry or want a snack about 9-9:30p. Instead of ice cream, cookies, etc I will have a glass of unsweetened coconut almond milk (45 calories) and sometimes add 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries or strawberries and ice and blend for a quick shake of less than 100 calories.

Shop Aldi's - They Have Healthy Options, I Swear

I used to think that Aldi's was only full of super processed junk food. However, I have found my favorite things there like hummus, light cheese sticks, produce, low sodium/sugar canned fruit and soups. While there are certainly temptations if you are looking to lose weight and save money Aldi's can't be beat!

Put healthy snacks in your way

I have been making healthy snacks mostly cut up fruit & veggies and putting them in attractive bowls everywhere in my kitchen & dining room. So when I want to grab something to pop in my mouth it's the first thing I see. This is helpful when I'm cooking so I eat healthy snacks instead of looking for something not so healthy. It's just more convenient not to get something else out.

Cravings

If a person says "don't think about this. don't think of that." That is exactly what they think of. I try to make an effort to think about the healthy foods that I want to eat, instead of restricting any kind of food from my diet. For example if I want to eat more oranges, I think on purpose daily of citrus, yummy fruit, and how much I enjoy the particular taste. Suddenly I find myself craving an orange. Our thoughts are very powerful!

Getting veggies for breakfast...

I have been using Green Giant frozen veggies that already have seasoning on them in my eggs this week! For delicious scrambled veggies that are quick and easy.

(I use Aldi's Fit & Active Egg whites)
