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.

Keep guilt-free food handy

Each week I make fresh batches of healthy tuna salad and vegetable soup. I also have lots of fresh fruit, cut vegies and healthy crunchy snacks around. I'm more likely to choose healthy lunch f ood if there is a variety of prepared, easy options available for me to "grab and go." (see recipe links)

Starting the day

Upon waking, the first thing I do is drink a full glass of water. I start my day by re-hydrating my body after sleeping for 7 plus hours without any fluids.

Healthier Snacking

I keep fruit in a bowl on my desk at work. When I feel the need for a snack, I reach for a piece of fruit in the bowl instead of the candy in the candy dish on my desk.

Breakfast Possible...

I'm not a morning person, so it is almost impossibly to eat something solid in the morning. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so I make my self a protein - berry smoothie. I use 1 cup of mixed berries with 1 or 2 scoops of my favorite protein shake and breakfast is now possible.

Fixing My Chocolate Fix

I admit I am a chocoholic, and unsweetened cocoa powder is how I get my 'fix.' I use it daily in smoothies, oatmeal, coffee, tea- now I prefer it to chocolate syrup, etc. It's great for getting the healthy antioxidant benefits of chocolate without the extra calories or fat in other types of it.
