Secrets of Success

I saw your question on snacking after the kids go to bed. I would suggest trying to not snack too much but if you must then go with high protein foods so you feel full longer. I make smoothies with skim milk, low fat greek yogurt and mixed frozen fruit. I have a hand held blender thingy. It comes up to about 2 cups and I sip it and it definitely fills me up. Other high protein foods are string cheese, almonds, chicken breast, eggs and/or liquid egg whites, ricotta cheese, celery and peanut butter, turkey, other nuts, pork tenderloin asparagus, broccoli and brussel sprouts. Dandelion greens, cauliflower, pumpkin, mushrooms, sweet potato or yam. Beans such as kidney beans, lentils, black beans, navy and pinto beans and brown rice. Pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, halibut, salmon, trout, sole, chicken, grilled pork chop. Coconut, avocado, watermelon, peaches and papaya, prunes and apricots too!
So I know this is a huge list and I hope not overwhelming. I take from it what I like and pre-make the things that need to be cooked. Try to portion they into serving sizes. I use like tupperware and/sandwich bags. That way you don't snack on too much.
