Plan my meals

Every week on my day off I figure out what i'll be making for dinner, and packing for lunch/snacks etc for the next week, entering it in the Nutrition Tracker. I can fine tune it all so that I meet my nutritional needs and stay in my target caloric range!

Chocolate

I crave chocolate and I recently have read an article that said consuming chocolate produces chemicals that make you feel happy. I suffer from depression but letting myself have chocolate and not feeling guilty keeps me going.

Pack the night before

I make sure I pack my healthy breakfast and lunch the night before so I'm not hurried the next morning and either pack something I shouldn't or forget the entire thing

Veggie Soup

I've been really enjoying my all veggie soup. It's been great to have on hand for right before dinner. I find if I eat a satisfying bowl of it I don't want as many carbs for dinner. It's working out great!

Help resisting temptation

I LOVE chocolate--as a result, I have a hard time making myself stop when I've had a full serving. I started leaving it in places where I have to get up on a step stool to reach, and to my amazement it works! I pull down the tin and grab five pieces and put it back before I eat the treats.

Get your chocolate fix

Instead of a candy bar, try a sugar-free, reduced-calorie Jell-O chocolate pudding snack with a squirt of nonfat whipped cream topping. Eat it with a baby spoon to savor it longer. Saves 185

Staving off Hunger

Whenever I feel hungry and I'm between meals or snacks I will drink sparkling mineral water. Any brand, as long as it is 0 calorie and has minimal amount of sodium. The carbonation helps me feel full and if it is flavored (like Trader Joe's lime flavored) it makes me feel like I am having a 'treat.'

Protein secret

I'm terrible at getting enough protein in my diet. So here is a trick that I learned: When fixing ANY meal, add 1 cup of unsalted, unroasted pine nuts when you're cooking! It contains 18 grams of protein, they're virtually tasteless, and they add a unique texture to your meal.

Try something new

Give a new food a try. We often shy away from healthy foods because we think they taste bad. Try a new food, new recipe or a new way of cooking a food you currently don't like. I never liked carrots until I tried some my brother in law made and now they are often on my grocery list. emoticon

Protein Intake!

I have a hard time meeting the minimum requirement for protein intake...until I discovered lightly sea-salted edamame. 13g of protein per 1/4 cup!! Now it's part of my morning snack and I can pass on the nuts which are so high on fat. I can a slightly nutty taste from the edamame.
