Individual Servings Of Refried Beans

I enjoy refried beans & need the folates, but can't finish a can fast enough, so I scoop a whole can into a clean ice-cube tray, freeze, then store the cubes in a gallon zip-loc bag. Each cube is apx. 1 oz., perfect for side-taste with just about any meal. I reheat cubes in micro - apx. 1 min each.

Variety!

Try new foods, experiement with spices, discover fresh herbs, or even just change up your usual meal plans. I find I'm a lot more likely to start dreaming about a burger or nachos or something unhealthy if I'm bored with my food.

Don't torture Yourself -Eat what you like.

Don't force down foods you don't like just because they are 'diet' foods. I was trying to force down a salad everyday. Then the lightbulb went on and I realized that I do not like raw vegetables. I stopped the daily torture and now eat my veggies cooked. My weight loss and attitude are better.

Better Butter

Mix butter with olive oil to create a healthier spread. I take a stick of butter and then let it soften. slowly mix in same amount of olive oil, using a fork. I do not know whose idea this was originally. But it is heart- healthier than butter ..and cheaper than those expensive butter subsitutes.

Healthy Dip for Veggies

Puree cottage cheese in blender or food processor. Mix it with your choice of spices. I like Mrs Dash, or sometimes a hot pepper. Perfect for your Healthy Happy Hour veggies.
