While grilling meat, toss some veges into a grilling pan (mine looks like a wok with holes in it) and cook side by side. Saves time, doesn't heat up the kitchen and adds a nice toasty flavor to your veges.
I am not a breakfast person, but am starving by lunchtime. So I wake up and drink my 2 cups of coffee.To keep my appetite under control until lunch, I make a GNC whey protein shake. It has 100 calories and obviously a good amount of protein (that I would otherwise miss).
I mix 16 grams of protein powder in my instant oatmeal and cold cereal for added protein.
eat a lot of your calories in the AM , you will be less hungry the rest of the day.
A piece of fruit or cracker might be a good snack -- but adding a bit of protein to it will make it much more filling! Grab a slice of cheese, lean turkey or half a glass of milk to keep the munchies away for longer.
When ordering in a restaurant I am learning to ask for just what I need even when it is not on the menu. Salad dressing on the side; Marinara instead of Alfredo Sauce; just a little oil in the sauté. It worked at Olive Garden and I felt great!
Almost every restaurant has their menu online these days... so before heading out to eat, check out the menu and decide ahead of time what healthy options you have available to you. That way, you'll be less likely to be "tempted" by some favorite dish you see on the menu!
How to Get those 5 fruits and veggies daily is to have 2 fruits/veggies for breakfast - spinach omelette, diced fruit in cereal, breakfast quiche w/ tomatoes, etc.
One as a snack( fresh or dried)- apple, banana, orange, etc.
Two servings with dinner - cucumbers and tomatoes in a side salad
