Am I really hungry?

Sometimes I use this little trick to stop senseless snacking- I tell myself I can have an apple (or something similarly healthy) if I am truly hungry. If I don't want the apple, just the "other snack" I had in mind, then I am not really hungry, and don't allow myself a snack.

CHANGE HOW YOU COOK YOUR VEGETABLES

I had to change how I cooked and ate to maintain my weight loss. Gone are the casseroles and mushroom soup sauces and cheese sauces that drowned my vegetable dishes. I added variety too! No more boring mashed potatoes and gravy and peas!

Prepared Meals

In order to simplify meal preparation, I keep several often used veggies chopped and stored in 5 cup containers in the fridge. When I begin a recipe, it's great to have the onion, celery, bell peppers, etc all ready to go!

Make extra food at dinner for lunch tomorrow!

This is one of my best healthy eating and cooking tips. Every time I cook dinner, I want the time and effort put into it to last. So I double my recipes in order to have enough for dinner that night and leftovers for at least the next day's lunches.
