Olivio Topping/Cooking Spray

I use this stuff on EVERYTHING! It's good on it's own topping toast and it is wonderful as a cooking spray. I spritz the pan and toss in veggies. Zero calories for 5 sprays! It has olive oil with other ingredients to make a great flavor and saves major calories!

Fresh Herbs

I grow fresh herbs in boxes on my back deck and use them in all of my cooking. It's a fantastic way to add taste without adding calories. And it just feels so good and healthy!

POSTPONE don't DEPRIVE

If I still want it later, I have some, but usually I can do without.

Are you getting enough?

Make sure you are eating enough protein. Protein helps your body heal and stay healthy. It also keeps you feeling full longer. If you find yourself hungry all the time, add more protein to your meals and snacks.

Aloe Vera Juice

I just discovered Aloe Vera Juice...it is delicious, full of Vitamin C and has no added sugar...I am sure the natural sugar adds up, but I was highly impressed with the flavor.
