Learn to Love Black Coffee

I learned to love black coffee by "refreshing" my coffee without adding more milk and sugar. When you're about 1/3 through your cup with milk and sugar, add some more black coffee, but no milk or sugar. Over the course of weeks, you'll get used to less milk and sugar, and can wean yourself off!

Sweet Tooth?

For those of you who are coffee drinkers, I've found that it's perfect for taking the edge off that late night (of anytime) sweet craving. I add 1/2 cup of nonfat milk and 1.3 tbsps of sugar free mocha mix to 12 ounces of coffee (77 cal total), and it's the perfect combination of warm and sweet.

Travel Snacks

When I travel, I bag up single servings of healthy snacks and cereals in zip lock bags. I keep them in my carry on or tote so I never have to settle for an unhealthy snack.

Portion Control - Plate it and forget it

I have started plating all food in the kitchen. Everyone gets a age and size appropriate portion and then I set all of the plates out. It keeps everyone from eating seconds.

Nutrition tracking at the end of the day, recipes and blogging

great tools for learning nutritious meal planning, and if I err badly in my daily eating, I make a point of putting it in my blog, which is embarrassing for me, and has actually helped me make better choices. Don't like to let my friends down..

My salad trick

When I am eating salad, I keep the dressing on the side and dip my fork into it before spearing some veggies. I taste the dressing without overdoing it with the calories!

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.
