Fruit and Veggies

I spend some time when returning from the grocery store to wash, chop, dice, slice all my fruits (berries and melon) and veggies (especially lettuce, carrots, celery, jicama, tomatoes) and lemons and limes for my water. They are all ready for me to grab when making meals or planning snacks.

Cravings

It seems that if I eat a snack (usually popcorn) at night, the next night I crave it terribly. After a few nights of not eating it, the cravings subside. I think cravings sometimes are a result of habit, not hunger.

Beets in Chopped Salad

I have been enjoying canned beets in my chopped salads. To cut down on the salad dressing, I have been pouring some of the canned beet juice over the salad and adding Mrs Dash or another spice mix on top for added flavor.

Managing food

I used to worry about eating at night, but now, I break my food into mini meals. I can eat guilt free without messing up my metabolism. Coupled with tons of water, eating has become the key to my success.

Cut Juice with Water or Club Soda/Seltzer/Sp

Water

Juice can be high sugars and calories. However, if you cut it with water, it lasts longer, tastes less sweet, but just as satisfying, and keeps those calories in check. Instead of water, use club soda for a great soda substitute! I now only use a splash of juice for flavor.

Chips and Salsa Craving?

When I find myself craving chips and salsa, I make myself a big lettuce salad and cover it in salsa. The lettuce has the great crunchy satisfaction as tortilla chips - without the bad stuff. Honestly, I like it so much I do this at least three times a week now!
