If you have a baby that is starting to get solids all starter baby food is healthy. So if your baby is having puree mango for snack then you have a fresh mango as well. It really helps if you make your own baby food while doing this. This helps me get back to the basics of food and clean eating.

Some of us cannot help but eat mindlessly while watching tv or even just sitting down thinking!
I grab my small bag of organic carrots, sit down on the couch, and next thing you know I ate 10-20 baby carrots with no dip in 30min to an hour.
Use carrots, celery, anything coarse to slow down from eating a huge quantity of chips or crackers.
nuts are good, but only in moderation if you are trying to lose weight. I had to stop buying pistachios and almonds b/c I love them so much I would eat TONS of them a day AND they do not curb my appetite.
I normally do not like the taste or texture of hummus, but this stuff is amazing! It tastes just like pizza sauce with cheese mixed in. I've eaten it with baby carrots, celery sticks, or pita chips, or I"ve spread it on a pita bread and topped with onion and mushrooms. And 2 TBSP has only 30 calories! Its a great snack alternative if you need a break from salsa.
The brand is called "Tribe". I live in MN, and I found it at my local grocery store (Cub Foods). There are also other flavors like roasted garlic, chipotle, and regular, but I haven't tried those yet.
