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.
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!
dilute your favorite mayo with fat free , unflavored yogurt, about a 1:1 ratio, and save yourself alot of money and calories.
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!
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 :)
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.
The only salad Dressing I like is full fat Ranch, but it is so bad
SO I whip 2% cottageCheese with the dry Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix, and it is perfect. Same beloved Taste way less Cal. and fat
When the rubber band trick doesn't chase the cravings away or I just feel SELF-indulgent I drink Ensure Chocolate shake or add ice in blender for shake -
shopping for healthy foods only-- knowing i have no junk food keeps me going
