When I make egg salad, tuna salad, etc I use plain yogurt in place of mayonnaise. Lower in calories and tasty. I prefer the yogurt more than I do the light mayonnise that has a sweet flavor to me.
A super fast, tasty, easy to clean and healthy breakfast. Ingredients: 1 egg (or substitute), fat-free milk, 1 slice low fat cheese, 2 thin slices of lunch meat, toasted english muffin. Add the egg and milk to a cup with the same bottom size as the muffins. Stir and microwave for 1 min.
I fill a 64 ounce water bottle with ice water and as it melts I drink it throughout the day. No guessing about getting the correct amount of water.
A deliciious & healthy alternative to mayonnaise or mustard on a sandwich is to spread on guacamole.
Plan and pack your lunch. Rather than eat out for lunch on work days, I try to pack my lunch the night before. This way I can choose something that I will be 'interested' in eating and enter it in the tracker as well.
Drink herbal tea when stressed out or upset. Chamomile tea will help calm you and is naturally sweet so just a touch of sweetner is needed. This is a calorie free way to get the hand to mouth comfort so many of us seek.
I take the pan I baked in and add about a cup of water to get all the flavor (deglazing). Then I put it in a freezer bag to use whenever I need to add flavoring to something I'm making, like gravy or soup. Much better for me than the store bought.
When hungry and in need of a snack, I go to the package, bag or box, measure out a single serving and put the rest away. I always used to think that would not satisfy me, but I have been pleasantly surprised to find it does. It also helps to curb my "grazing" or mindless nighttime eating.
If I find that I ran out of calories for dessert, I eat a single Hershey's kiss. It's only 22 calories and if you really savor it slowly it will satisfy your chocolate craving and keep you from feeling like eating healthy is such a hardship.
