Dip your fork in your salad dressing.

Helps you to eat less dressing. Still get the taste of the dressing, get to taste more of the salad, and less calories. :)

Minimize the negativity

I have never been a positive person. Lately, I have been focusing on the positive things that have occurred since beginning my healthy lifestyle instead of the negative. This has profoundly changed my outlook in life in general, not just with weight loss and healthy living.

Use Recipe Calculator to create a healthy recipe

I use the Recipe Calculator to determine calorie count of a new recipe. I check the recipes on file to see if someone else has made it yet or create my own recipe and add it to my Meal Planner

Join a CSA!

Community-Supported Agriculture is good for local farmers AND your waistline! By investing in a farm for a season, you, get a weekly share of locally grown fresh - often organic - veggies and fruits (many farms offer beef, poultry, and dairy as well). I've learned to love a huge variety of veggies!

Shirataki

Get the pasta feel without all the pasta. Drain it, rinse it and parboil to get rid of the odor. You'll get used to the texture - I promise

Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker!!!

This one dish has been a lifesaver for me in terms of preparing quick, healthy meals - if I'm short on time, it keeps me from ordering bad food!

2 Chx Breast, red and yellow peppers, garlic, lime juice and low sodium taco seasoning - 12 minutes in the microwave for low fat chicken fajitas for 2!

Nightime Eating

If you are like me and get hungry at night here is what I do. I plan out my food in my nutrition tracker and always leave just enough for a night time snack which is a bowl of cheerios. That satisfies a craving if you re really hungry and has no guilt attached because it fits in your tracker.
