Fiber Hard to get in?

I found a WONDERFUL new cereal - Fiber One Caramel Delights....9 grams of fiber in 1 cup. Calories & carbs not too bad, either. That, combined with 4 servings per day of Crystal Light Live Active with Fiber, and one serving of Yoplait Fat-Free Fiber One yogurt....and I'm set for fiber intake!

Popcorn Tricks

For air-popped popcorn, instead of salt and tons of butter, I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend and a table spoon or so of heart healthy spread, melted. Put the popcorn in a storage bag, shake in some Mrs. Dash and the "butter" and shake it until it's all blended. Yummy and still healthy!

Salad instead of fries

When I go out to eat, I order a house salad w/veggies only and then if I don't like any of the sides that go with my dish, I ask them not to put anything on there. If I don't have french fries in front of me then I am not missing them and w/the salad I'm nice and full.

Eating Breakfast

If you have trouble making time for breakfast in the morning, measure and pour a bowl of cereal the night before and leave it with the spoon on top next to the fridge.

The visual will remind you, and if it is already sitting there, you will eat it, even in a hurry. All it needs is the milk!

Horseradish is Low in Sodium

I've reduced a lot of sodium by giving up steak sauce and substituting horseradish on steak, roasts, and beef sandwiches. Be sure to check the nutrition label to make sure your horseradish is low in sodium.

Quick high protein breakfast

When I lam in a hurry in the morning, I often grab a handful of nuts (or pre-packaged ones such as Nut-trition) and a low-fat string cheese for breakfast. It satisfies me for quite a long time, and doesn't cause blood sugar swings.

8 Glasses of Water

I like to keep a cold bottle of 8 glasses of water with me at all times so that when I get thirsty I can just reach for my water. It's healthy and convenient!

Frozen Fruit

I love to buy frozen berries, pineapple chunks, mango and peaches. When I get a craving for ice cream or some other sugary treat, I reach into the freezer and grab my frozen fruit. I eat it frozen. It takes care of the craving and fits very nicely into my calorie allowances!

Holiday Candy

Have holiday candy staring you in the face? Find yourself grabbing your kid's mini snickers? 1) Put all the candy in the freezer or even ask a relative to hide it. 2) Cut up veggies first thing in the morning and keep the plate right out in the open. It will be the first thing you grab & not the last.
