Yogurt Yummies

I love yogurt but tend to eat it too fast (not much to chew).
To boost the nutrients AND make it 'chewy' I add either...
Nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, etc.)
Fruit (strawberries, blueberries, bananas, etc.)

Wait 15 Minutes Before Taking Seconds!

If I have just eaten dinner and still feel hungry and want seconds I DON'T deprive myself of them. BUT I DO make myself wait 15 minutes before taking them. I find 90% of the time I'm no longer hungry after 15 minutes.

Salsa as a Salad Dressing

When I fix a big salad have found using Salsa works great. I always prefer salsa with taco salad, why not any salad, and the best part is fat free, low calories and you can use more salsa than any salad dressing. And to tweak I add a couple of tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar.

Add Extra Veggies to your Salsa

Chop up cucumbers, carrots, peppers, zucchini, etc... and add them to jarred salsa. You'll boost the nutrients, the fiber, and the flavor.

Try something new

During season, we go to the Farmer's Market and try to find something new and in season to add to our veggies for the week. I love learning to cook something new and dinner is never boring.

Dip your fork in the dressing instead of putting it directly on the salad!

Fiber Boost ( besides fruit & veges )

Thomas' Better Start Light English muffins.
100 calories, a whopping 8 grams of fiber, 0 fat.
That beats most wheat bread with 1/2 the calories!

croutons trick

When I have croutons with my salad, i crumble them to make it look like there's more on a plate. I'm such a visual person and it really does the trick of convincing my mind that there's plenty croutons in there where in reality it's only a couple. You'll save a lot of calories in your salad doing so
