A little less mayo

So I love ham and mayo sandwiches so i figured out a way to cut down on the mayo but still have it. Instead of putting it on the bread which soaks it in and makes me want to put more on it, I spead it on the ham. I can see the mayo all over and I use only 1/2 tablespoon!

Greek Yogurt

I love Greek yogurt, but it's so expensive! Now I make my own. I bought a mesh strainer from a kitchen store , I buy plain nonfat yogurt in the big tub, pour it into the strainer and let it sit over night. The water drains out and you are left with thick Greek yogurt. Add sugar free jelly. YUM

If you don't like fruit, make a smoothie

Just pack your fruit in early, and drink it. Even if you don't like eating fruit or cutting it up, smoothies are easy. Start with a ripe banana, add a little plain yogurt or skim milk, add a mix of other fruits... berries, half an orange, pineapple, peaches, etc.

Five Alive!

Eating five fruits and vegetables each day is paramount to good health. If you are having a hard time "digesting" this fact, try having a few fruits and veggies in a smoothie in the morning. The added fiber is a healthy and refreshing way to start the day.

Thrive with 5!

If you don't have space for a full size garden, a great way to incorporate fresh food into your diet is to plant container gardens. The accomplishment of growing & nurturing a tomato, pepper, carrot...plant or seed to produce nutrient rich, flavorful fresh food can't be beat.
