Chewing gum

When I feel like I want something sweet, I chew some sugar free gum and that will usually take my craving away.

Grocery Shopping

A good friend once said the healthiest foods at the store were along the walls, not the aisles. I follow her advice and up on lots of fresh produce, natural cuts of meat, fresh fish, yogurt, cheese, and preservative-free bread from the bakery, skipping over the processed junk in boxes.

Farmer's Market

I visit the local Farmer's Market once a week. I plan our family meals around the vegetables and fruits that are in season. Local produce is a wonderful way to enhance our famliy's dinner time. There is always something new to eat. This week it was fresh spinach salads and strawberries.

Farmer's Market

Find a local Farmer's Market for fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. You'll be amazed at the difference in taste when you buy food that hasn't been shipped half way around the world.

Greek Yogurt

Great high protein snack - Greek Yogurt. 1 cup has 150 calories, 4.5 grams of fat and a whopping 19 grams of protein. Try it with some honey drizzled over it for a sweet, protein packed afternoon snack.

Low Cal, Low Fat, High Veggie Salad Dressing

I like to mix 1 tsp low fat sour cream w/ salsa (fresh is best) for a delicious, creamy, veggie-filled, low cal, low fat salad-dressing... if I don't want the cream, I just omit the sour cream.

Junk Freek Meat, Cheese and Milk

I try to only eat meat, milk and cheese that is hormone and antibiotic free. I feel 100% better which THEN helps me have energy to eat healthy and exercise. This step is very important for women going through menopause.

Immediate Pleasure VS Eternal Pain

Junk food tastes good right now but an hour later you FEEL the negative effects. Weeks or months later you SEE the negative effects. Something great for a few seconds or minutes isn't worth something horrible for months or years.

Find healthy swaps

If you like..
* ice cream, find a healthier version (I like Dreyer's double churned no sugar added)
* fried chicken, find a baked version that you like
* high salt & fat snacks, try salted dry roasted edamame

There are always better options!
