How to add Veggies to your meals easily

Thaw frozen veggies into microwave or a steamer & toss them into soups, Dreamfield's pasta or brown rice. Broil sliced vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, & tomatoes for just a few minutes until they blacken around the edges. Serve warm with a low-calorie dressing of lemon juice, low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise, and black pepper or you can add tomatoes, radishes, green or red peppers to a tuna salad made with low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise or just a little Oilive Oil.

Lentils Can Help Reverse Prediabetes & more!

Research suggests eating 1/2 cup of lentils daily gives you steadier blood sugar, because they moderate rapid fluctuations in glucose and insulin levels. Lentils are said to help reverse prediabetes in as little as a month. Other Studies have shown that people who eat a diet rich in lentils and beans are less likely to gain weight. Lentils are a good replacement for starchy foods such as pasta. Sneak them into soups and sauces. Lentils are high in protein and a good source of vitamins.

Take magical steps towards your miracle

I used to kick myself for what I should have eaten or should have done. Spark People has changed me. Now I imagine every positive step I take towards being healthy as magical.
-take my meds or do a blood sugar test
-choose a fiber rich snack
-go for a walk
-make a post on a Spark People thread
Some days I "run a marathon of steps" and some days are just one or two "baby steps" but they all mattter! They all add up. Look for an opportunity and run with it!
