Food preparation

I bought some strawberries a few days ago and as soon as we got home, my daughter washed them and put them in a bowl. If the fruit and vegies are all prepared, it is just as easy to grab them instead of candy or other sweets.

Weekly diet

I usually buy the same lunch food items for the 5 days I work. I divide the fruit and veggies into the 5 different containers for each day. Then in the mornings I just grab one of each of the containers plus my cheese's and my protien for lunch (usually a salmon patty) and I'm all set for the day...

Planning

I plan my meals and snacks for the day and input them in my tracker. This way I don't have to wonder if I'm staying within my range.

Getting 3 servings of fruit a day

Eat a serving of your favortie fruit before each meal. You will actually be getting your 3 servings of fruit and aiding in the digestion of the rest of your meal.

Mayonnaise substitute

Hummus is a great substitute for mayonnaise. It is flavorful, high in fiber, low fat, and has protein. Try a flavored hummus like red pepper or roasted garlic. Its particularly good on a turkey sandwich!

Pre bagging fruits

After I buy a melon from the store I immediatly cut it up and weigh it out into ziplock bags. The look so enticing everytime I open the fridge and it makes it easy for me to grab and go. Plus I know how much to account for.

"TASTE TEST"

My granny taught me to cook using the family recipes which often read salt/sugar/pepper/butter/cream to taste. To break this habit I keep water & sip instead of tasting or rise mouth with Listerin before entering kitchen

Easy cereal portion control

If you have an extra 1 cup measuring cup, keep it right inside your box of cereal. You'll remember portion control every time you open the box! This works for many other foods, as well.

Help with plain old water!

8 glasses a day is a stretch but I love lime in my water. I found Simply lime, lemon and orange packets. No sweeteners, just pure crystallized fruit juice to add flavor without the actual fruit!
