Fresh Veggies

In my lunchbox, I always have 3 different veggies with me. So when I get snacky, I grab some cauliflower, celery, green peppers, carrots or cucumber. The crunchy aspect of those vegetables is great for people who are trying to stay away from chips.

Solving your portion problems

If you have a portion control problem, make your serving bowl a measuring cup. Pre-count snacks and store them in snack bags. Make up your burgers ahead of time by weighing the meat, prepare your patty, then freeze.

One day at a time

My body has many ups and downs. Some days a lot of pain and unknowns. If I focus on the pain and the trails or worry about tomorrow it can wreck the whole day. emoticon
But if I focus on others I can enjoy the day and what it has to offer. emoticon
I would rather enjoy the day

Little trouble can be experienced when cutting a standard cake baked in one container into two halves for spreading with cream or jam. Just bind a silk or cotton thread around the cake and draw it right through. Result clean cut and no mess.

White vinegar (possibly apple cider vinegar as well, I haven't tried it) is great for dissolving hard water deposits.

Fiber Hard to get in?

I found a WONDERFUL new cereal - Fiber One Caramel Delights....9 grams of fiber in 1 cup. Calories & carbs not too bad, either. That, combined with 4 servings per day of Crystal Light Live Active with Fiber, and one serving of Yoplait Fat-Free Fiber One yogurt....and I'm set for fiber intake!

Popcorn Tricks

For air-popped popcorn, instead of salt and tons of butter, I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend and a table spoon or so of heart healthy spread, melted. Put the popcorn in a storage bag, shake in some Mrs. Dash and the "butter" and shake it until it's all blended. Yummy and still healthy!
