Pickles are a girls BFF

When ever I'm at the store I'll make sure to grab a jar of sweet pickles made w/splenda for my car ride home. They're better then a candy bar and it makes me laugh everytime thinking about what someone would think if they saw this jar in my cup holder.

Understand food industry tricks & food addiction

Research shows that some food manufacturers combine fat, sugar and salt to stimulate ‘reward centres’ in the brain, causing addiction just as tobacco does. We then crave these foods and can't stop eating them even when we're full. Sound familiar?

Google “bliss point food” for more information...

Home made Ice Cream

I make my own ice cream using skim milk and Splenda. If I want chocolate, I use unsweetened cocoa powder, or just put in fresh fruit.

Flour Power!

I just discovered White Whole Wheat Flour! It is still whole wheat just made from the white wheat variety. It has a milder taste than regular whole wheat making it perfect for baking. Make sure to get the unbleached kind, so it's natural with no chemicals. King Arthur's brand makes a good one.

A quick breakfast on the go.

The biggest help for me? A protein smoothie every morning. I blend up almond milk, whey protein powder, spinach, flax oil, frozen strawberries for one example. Throw it in a to go cup & take it like I would coffee. Great easy energizing breakfast.

Fresh Food

I find that having a garden helps me to eat healthier in the summer-and the winter. I use working int he garden as a form of exercise (and tanning) and then eat the veggies and fruits that come out of it.

Ice Cream Substitute

To get a delicious treat without all the calories, freeze Yoplait Light Whips Yogurt. This way when you want ice cream you get the same texture and taste but not all the calories.

diet tonic water

we all know it is very difficult to give up sodas but diet tonic water with lime or lemon juice (fresh is better but bottle juice will do) does actually taste great (better than water out of the tap) and still gives you the fizz. plain seltzer water with juice is also great and less sodium. :)

Keeping up with Breakfast

This might have been said already but I want to reiterate the importance of taking the extra few minutes to eat a good breakfast in the morning. This has been a tremendous help in me reaching my goal of 10% of my weight, weightloss in six months.
