What I do to reward myself..

I used to overeat. And now out of the clear blue sky my appetite just isn't like it was. Why? Well doing exercises and lots and lots of walking made it happen.

Healthy vs. Healthier

Eating healthy can be a heady thing to start, overwhelming. i started telling myself "healthier." you start in the grocery store with things that may not be the best, but they're better than what you were getting before. before you know it your choices that were small, have grown to be huge changes

Add 16g tasty protein to breakfast!

For breakfast, stir 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder & 1/2C milk together & add cereal (& fruit). Yummy and a great high protein way to start your day. Oh, and they make chocolate & strawbery, too! ;)

Remember that you *will* get another treat again!

Sometimes when I'm faced with something tempting and I'm tempted to blow my portion control, I need to remind myself that this is not the last piece of chocolate/lasagne/cheese in the world... I've had my bit, and I *don't* need more. I *will* get more--later!

Got a Sweet Tooth you can't subside? Here's my saving grace!

Good Earth's Sweet and Spicy Tea! It's a roobios-based tea I was nervous and anxious to be around desserts the first week of a new diet, but I'm just TOO much of a social person to cancel plans with friends because of food.

Before going out to eat, check to see if they list their menu with nutritional values on line. Many are now doing this and it helps to make wise choices.

Cooking your own dinner burns calories too!

According to walking guru Leslie Sansonne, there's another great benefit to cooking at home instead of eating out. You typically burn about 100 calories between the act of cooking and cleaning up for each meal! More incentive to eat at home!

Low fat yogurt substitute for sour cream

Quite a few years ago, I discovered that substituting low fat plain yogurt for sour cream was a good way to have lower calories, but with good flavor and also to have the probiotics of the yogurt.

Weekly Lunches

When I'm cooking dinner on sunday for the family, I also take the time to make a large pot of tofu veggie spiced rice for my lunches for the week. SO I end up with a week's worth of good for me and tasty food out having to deal with it in the mornings.
