"tricking" myself into eating healthily

I make snacks that are healthy for the kids, so that when I pick at the leftovers I don't sabotage my efforts. It also makes sure to fill them up with healthy food instead of junk.

Planning Meals

I always try to plan my meals either the night before or the next morning for the whole day. Really helps me, especially if I am really busy. Then I don't get caught off guard and eat the wrong thing.

Meal Planning

I use the nutrition tracker to plan my meals for the day, including snacks. i look forward to, and enjoy, every meal and snack, and this strategy helps me avoid going over my daily nutrition goals.

Soy beans

If I am hungry I found 1/4 cup of soy beans and 1 cup of plain non fat yogurt is filling and is a healthy snack

Snack vs Mini-Meal

It may be all in the mind, but using the term mini-meal instead of snack helps me to select healthier options when planning and eating between meals.

Watch for high calories in whole grains and seeds

I was thinking I was having a great breakfast for travel. 1/2 c raw oatmeal, 1/4 c. raisins, about 80 pumpkin seeds.
It was 400 cal. 75 cabs, 9 fats, and 12 protein. It is nice because it is balanced and I snacked on it all am. But have to be cautions of cal count

snack

I snack on my favorite baby food fruit. They are only 50 calories and have three ingredients (depending on the selection) and one of the ingredients is vitamin C. A snack that includes my vitamin C!!!

Know your restaurants

Since I'm traveling today, I'm thankful I've read so many SP articles about some of the more common restaurants and the healthier choices to be made at them. It's not easy, but watching what you eat on vacation is a must.
