Walk to the grocery store instead of eating at the Caf

If i didn't have time to pack my lunch (which rarely happens), instead of eating at the cafeteria I will walk to the grocery store. I am fortunate that there is one just about 10 mins away. I find I am able to get less processed foods...that cost less!

Buttery Spray

Smart Balance Spray is an excellent way to wean off butter and margarine on potatoes, corn, and veggies. It makes toast kind of wet, so spray one bite at a time to avoid sogginess. Watch out for some brands of butter spray that include trans fats. No partially hydrogenated oil should be listed.

Almond Breeze - not for pudding

I'd heard so many positive things about Almond Breeze I bought some to make my favorite treat - SF Pistachio pudding. Pudding will not set up with Almond Breeze.

Secret?

My secret is that Iím sure there is no secret. I think most of us know what we have to do, but fail to do so. We need support and friends for that. And this is the most important secret, isnít it?

Use spinach instead

I put raw spinach on sandwiches instead of lettuce. In fact, I substitute it for lettuce everywhere. It has the same crunch factor, doesn't taste different, and is way more nutritious.

Snacking Without Slipping

When I'm really craving a sweet treat, but don't want to blow my day, I make my own "ice cream sandwich." Spreading low (or no) fat cool whip between two cinnamon graham crackers and throwing it in the freezer for a few minutes is just perfect!! And, about 4g of fat. WIN!

Eat vegetables, and then eat even more vegetables

It is easy to add veggies into your day. They are low in calories, versatile and make for great snacks. Stock up on celery, carrots, baby bell peppers, cauliflower and broccoli florets, grape tomatoes and baby cucumbers. Then you can munch away without the guilt.
