Getting Infants To Eat What they Don't Like

When feeding my infant, I was told to put a little of the dessert last on the spoon and the vegetables first. Once she tasted the "dessert" she would continue to eat with no problems!

Save $s and Calories while giving your meal a crunch.

If you're on a budget, or trying to drop a few pounds,why not give this a try? Make up your bolognese or curry etc as usual, but substituting a diced potato, chick peas or beans for 1/4 of the meat. This saves calories, and money or it may just stretch a meal for an unexpected guest.

Sticky Situations

When I'm in a food situation that seems impossible to stay focused on my healthy diet--parties!--I keep reminding myself that the party will be over in just a couple of hours, and I can leave feeling really good, or leave feeling bad...Knowing the temptation will be over soon helps me stay on track!

The Skinny Cow

I just tried the White Mint Truffle by The Skinny Cow. The serving size is very satisfying for only 100 calories and the taste is great.

Beat feeling down and the blues.

No matter how you feel on the inside, if you dress to look great on the outside, people will respond to you with positive comments. That will feed you with positive reinforcements, and you will feel better on the inside and about yourself. Your mood will lift.

Partners in line

Keep more than one workout partner. Whenever possible, use all of them, but when someone can't make it, you still have a partner to work out with so you won't have that as an excuse to not go. It helps all of you to stay motivated to go to have more than one person to answer to if you don't go.

Keep Grated Carrots and Cabbage Around!

And add them to everything! They add crunch and nutrients to sandwiches, tuna salad, stews, stir fries, eggs, and a whole slew of other things!

I buy mine pre-shredded, as I'm lazy, but you definitely can DIY!

Healthier Alternative to Ice Cream is Frozen Peanut Butter

Recently saw on Dr. Oz that he recommends frozen peanut butter as a healthier alternative to ice cream.

I have also heard that mashing/blending frozen bananas is also a good "base" for making flavored ice cream without the fat.
