Save Salad Dressing Calories

I hate salads without salad dressing. And so, I split every new bottle of dressing into two bottles and add malt vinegar to each. It saves a lot of money on salad dressing, thins the dressing so that it coats better, and cuts my salad dressing calories in half.

Magic Pumpkin Pudding

One of my favorite desserts has always been pumpkin pie, and a good way to have it and cut down on the calories is to make it as a pudding/custard instead! With out the crust you also cut down on carbs, and since the crust has always been my least favorite part of the pie anyway, that's fine by me!

Cereal Trick

If your favorite breakfast cereal is too calorie dense, mix it with a less calorie dense cereal. For example, mix your favorite granola with perhaps rice krispies and corn flakes. You will still have the flavor but dramatically lower the calories. YUM!

Overpack lunch

I overpack my lunch, I always keep an extra snack with me just in case I get stuck in traffic or some other problem happens that I can't get to food and it stops me from feeling like I am starving.

Just One

I have found that if I want something I know I really don't need, I just have one bite. I am usually happy with one. Especially if it is chocolate. Takes care of craving, and I feel good about just one.

Travel Healthy

Airports = notorious for boredom eating. It's best to just say no to those pricey and caloric foods. Now I go to the airport shop to buy a magazine for the plane. It's my reward for not giving in to temptation AND it is cheaper than the 900 calorie snack I don't need. Bonus: pick a fitness mag!

Silk (Soy milk)

Went to Sam's Club with my nephew, Fancybird24 last week. We double dog dared each other to try the soy milk that the Demo Lady offered. It was awesome! I have lactose problems anyways, so this was an even better deal for me. It was fantastic with my cereal!

Drink Up

Drink a glass of water with every meal and with any medication you must take. It helps get in the water!
