Natural Salad Dressing

When I order my salad I have them add a few pepperoncini and cut them up as I mix in my salad dressing. The liquid from the inside adds more flavor to the dressing and I can use 50% less salad dressing.

Switch Plates

Recently at an event for the weekend with buffet style meals provided I decided to use the dinner plate for large healthy salads and veggies and used the salad plate for the entrée, bread etc. I did this for every meal. I ate more veggies and less calories this way. Yeah! emoticon

To Ensure That You Drink Enough Water:

I place my two-cup drinking glass on the first of four colorfully numbered circles I printed on a piece of paper. I put it in a prominent spot. This helps me keep track as I move it up after drinking and I am reminded to drink each time I walk past it.

Veggies

I found a helpful way to start eating veggies.
I went to PC.ca and there you can download and print a list of vegetables and fruits. I post that on my fridge and highlight all the ones I love. Then, when I go shopping, i make sure to get as many as possible(fresh, frozen or canned) emoticon

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

You can do anything when you have the time... but so often there is no time. So PLAN quick snacks and meals. Prepackage portions you make yourself and then freeze or put on the shelf or buy the preportioned packages. The foodtracker can be used ahead of time... not just after eating!

How to Eat Healthy and Lose Weight With... Spaghetti?

OK, not truly "spaghetti". But shiritake tofu noodles have a look, texture and taste that are fairly close to pasta noodles -- delicious! And a 4-oz serving is only 20 calories.

Changing to organic and clean foods

When ever I can I only buy whole foods. Organic and I always seek out the local Farmers markets.

Keep a healthy snack with you

Sometimes I get stuck in places or situations where I don't get to eat lunch or something else as planned. I carry a protein bar in my purse all the time. Then if I get tied up I can eat that so that I don't let myself get so hungry that I eat things I shouldn't or stuff myself.
