Nutrition tracking at the end of the day, recipes and blogging

great tools for learning nutritious meal planning, and if I err badly in my daily eating, I make a point of putting it in my blog, which is embarrassing for me, and has actually helped me make better choices. Don't like to let my friends down..

My salad trick

When I am eating salad, I keep the dressing on the side and dip my fork into it before spearing some veggies. I taste the dressing without overdoing it with the calories!

Plan out in advance

I have to plan my meals for the week with a little bit of flexibility because we are an on the go family. If I plan most of the week ahead of time, I know that my wiggle room is there. Definitely helps.

Bread

Make a large batch of bread and freeze what you don't eat immediately. Slice the bread before freezing and you'll find there's less waste.

homemade smoothies

When it looks like i'm going to go over my calorie/fat/carb intake by dinner time then i go to my homemade fruit smoothies.I blend some strawberries, fresh pineapples, mango, and blueberries and instead of using yogurt /milk i use ice cubes. Then i add 2 tablespoons of soy vegetable protein powder.
