photo food labels to track nutrition

tracking nutrition is essential for losing weight, but i can't always find the foods i eat. to be precise, i enter the information from the package labels, but the kitchen is not near the computer - so use an iphone/smartphone to take a photo of the label and then enter it in the nutrition tracker later. also works for when you are not at home!

Rice

Rice

Add a teaspoon of lemon juice to each quart of water used to cook rice. The grains will stay white and separated. If you want your rice to be light, fluffy and separated, try cooking with a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice.

Getting ready for a garage sale

As you start putting things together for a garage sale ( I usually start piling things into a spare room or downstairs), I price everything before I put it in a pile. Then, come early saturday morning, I just take it out to the driveway and organize it. One less thing to do!

Food tracker

To make tracking my food a bit easier, when I first log in to SP I add all the food I plan on eating that day this way I have an idea ahead of time of what my calories will be and if there is something I don't eat it is easy to just delete the item at the end of the day.

A Family Affair

Weight loss seems to go better if everybody in the house is working together. When everybody eats healthier foods and exercises together, it feels less like deprivation. Plus, the pounds drop faster when you have someone right in front of you to help keep you honest.
