Healthy Eating

I plan my menus for the week, shop only from my list, and cook all of my healthy meals on the weekends so my DH and I have healthy lunches and dinners ready when we are during the week. I add recipes to my nutrition tracker and track my food every day so I stay within my limits.

Good Earth Tea - Natural Sweet Treat

I crave something sweet after dinner and to avoid the extra calories I drink Good Earth Tea. It is naturally sweet so it satisfies my craving with 0 calories. It has become my "favorite" dessert. And they sell it at Costco in packs.

Applesauce instead of a milkshake

I found a substitute for the milk shake habit that I was often heading to the deli for--applesauce. I keep a jar in the refrig now, and I put some into a glass and then drink it through a thick straw. The texture is the same, and I'm comfortable with it.....less calories for sure.

"watch" what you eat

A great tip I follow is to never eat any meals infront of the tv. If you are concentrating on the tube you miss the classic signs of being full. More people over eat while infront of the television rather then at the dinner table. Proven fact

Eat real food

The more real food I eat the less I want that comes in a box or carton or can, and the better I feel! Real food comes from trees and chickens, the ocean and rivers, from vines and shrubs and other plants. And the less processed the better.

Smoothie Base

Cut up your brown bananas and freeze them for smoothies. Blended with frozen berries and a little soy milk, they make soy shakes!

Green Beans

Green beans are my go-to vegetable. I keep a case of canned green beans in my pantry for times when I'm out of fresh veggies or when I'm too tired to prep dinner.
