Super Yummy Green Smoothies!

I make a green smoothie most mornings to give my fruit and veggie intake a kick start. Simple combinations of mildly flavored greens and delicious fruits can pack in as many as 5 or 6 servings in one go! These are scrumptious and portable. Don't let the color scare you :)

Load up your kitchen pantry with healthy food, snacks, veggies & frutis

I have made it impossible for myself to snack on unhealthy food by stocking my kitchen with ONLY healthy food. That way, I control what I eat at home besides it is a great motivating factor when I have to eat out where I remind myself that what I do at home cannot be undone elsewhere.

Eyeing the Measurements

Sometimes it's difficult to stop the meal in progress and say "Hey wait a minute while I grab my measuring cup!" so it's good to train yourself to memorize what a cup or a half cup of grains or peas etc. looks like, so you can make your best estimate when you sit down to a meal at home or at a restaurant.

Another Water Tip

Buy several refillable water bottles (I prefer the stainless steel myself.) Keep at least four full of water in the refrigerator to have on hand. Then there are no excuses for not having time to get water before leaving the house; just grab a bottle and go. Good for the environment too!

Getting Your 8 glasses of water

I purchased a new 32 ounce water bottle and Pur water filter from Walmart. I do not buy sodas for my family and everyone drinks Crystal Light, even the kids. I fill my cute little pink water bottle full of crystal light and carry it everywhere. It's my new best friend. By afternoon, I have my 64!

Salsa Instead of Salad Dressing

I substiute salsa for salad dressing alot of days. 2 Tbsp of Salsa only has about 15 calories. This is 25% the calories found in many fat-free varieties of dressing and an even smaller fraction of the calories in regular dressing. Fewer to no additives either depending on the type you buy.

Visualizing ingredients

When faced with choice of tempting foods, I visualize the ingredients, i.e. French Silk Pie ingredients: white four. Lard, water, salt, butter, raw eggs, chocolate, sugar, vanilla. 4 servings of cream! Opt for fresh fruit, dipped in dark chocolate, 2 strawberries, perfect!
