Plan out in advance

I have to plan my meals for the week with a little bit of flexibility because we are an on the go family. If I plan most of the week ahead of time, I know that my wiggle room is there. Definitely helps.

Bread

Make a large batch of bread and freeze what you don't eat immediately. Slice the bread before freezing and you'll find there's less waste.

Buy a Food Scale

It is so much easier to portion out home cooked meals with a scale. Measure the stew, the cake, the bread or whatever you have made and then divide it by number of servings. You can weigh each serving before you eat and know exactly how many calories you are consuming.

By the gram

5 almonds = 5 grams which contain 29 calories 1 gram of carbs, 2.5 grams of fat and 1 gram of protien. Sure they are good for you and you will probably continue to eat them, but I bet you count them from now on.

Nuts Add Healthy Fat To Your Diet

I was having trouble getting enough healthy fat into my diet so I decided to try adding nuts. Not only did it bring up my fat level but I discovered that nuts also have a side benefit of making me feel full and satisfied. Nuts can be high in calories so plan for them in your daily calorie range!

Smoothies

I make smoothies in my vitamix for after a workout or meal. I use Boku protein powder, Boku superfood powder (use the brand you like), unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and frozen blueberries. This gives me energy and is delicious and filling. I make sure that this fits in my daily caloric needs.
