Thomas' Bagel Thins

These were recommended in a SP message one day. I tried them-the whole wheat kind- and I'm hooked. Each one is just 110 calories.

Fruit Salad

If you are tired of green salads, try having a fruit salad with dinner instead. Fruit salads don't require fattening dressings, and can be high in fiber. Not to mention, it is an easy way to get husbands and kids to eat their full servings of fruit!

Great way to start the day!

Need a quick yet filling and nutritious breakfast idea? Try yogurt with a high fiber granola bar (like the Fiber One bars). Not only does it give you a well balanced breakfast, but it'll give you a good start to the day!

Be Prepared

When you prepare a meal, cut up extra vegetables (celery sticks, carrots, cucumber, etc) and leave them in little zip-lock bags. Whenever you're hungry the following day, just grab a little bag. You won't be as tempted by the cake :)

Have some food adventures!

Focus on foods that you can ADD to your diet and not just those you should cut down on. I've experimented with lots of low calorie foods and SP recipes that were new to me and found some new favourites as my tastes have changed. Making this journey an adventure is more motivating than deprivation.
