Can You Fill Up With Fruit? YES, Here's How...

I eat this for lunch quite a bit & find it delicous, filling & nutricous. What to do is get 1 cup of yogurt (i use Giant brand-90 calories per cup) & slice up 1 medium banana, 3 medium fresh strawberries & i add 3 Tbs. of Ann's House brand, mother nature's reward mix of nuts & fruit. Mix it all up.

Don't Expect Yourself to Always Be Perfect

In my main profession as a healthcare provider, it's so easy for me to feel down when a procedure doesn't go perfectly or even when a patient doesn't accept treatment. I tell myself I'm a good person who really cares about my patients and their health and that I'm am doing the very best I can.

Weights and Measures

I bought a decent digital scale that measures in both kg and ounces.

I weigh out all my foods for accurate accounting.

almonds

I once heard a health guru say that for breakfast they ate 28 almonds (194 calories). They are a healthy alternative to just snacking on sweets. A jar sits on my kitchen counter top for when the munchies are taking over. And they're good for you!

Crockpot

Using a crock pot is a great way to stay healthy when you have a busy hectic lifestyle. You get great flavor when you let the ingredients meld together all day long. You can monitor what you put in, and because it cooks all day you don't have to put as much salt in to get the flavor you want.

Sweet substitutes

Replace the butter and whole eggs in cookies with equal amount of white canned beans and 2 egg whites; in brownies with equal amount of black canned beans and 2 egg whites. Rinse beans well and then put in a processor or a blender with the egg whites until smooth Less fat, more fiber and protein!
