Walk to the grocery store instead of eating at the Caf

If i didn't have time to pack my lunch (which rarely happens), instead of eating at the cafeteria I will walk to the grocery store. I am fortunate that there is one just about 10 mins away. I find I am able to get less processed foods...that cost less!

Snacking Without Slipping

When I'm really craving a sweet treat, but don't want to blow my day, I make my own "ice cream sandwich." Spreading low (or no) fat cool whip between two cinnamon graham crackers and throwing it in the freezer for a few minutes is just perfect!! And, about 4g of fat. WIN!

Eat vegetables, and then eat even more vegetables

It is easy to add veggies into your day. They are low in calories, versatile and make for great snacks. Stock up on celery, carrots, baby bell peppers, cauliflower and broccoli florets, grape tomatoes and baby cucumbers. Then you can munch away without the guilt.

Too much sodium in the chicken

If the chicken that you buy has too much sodium, soak it in water overnight to pull some of the sodium out.

Keep Your Own List(s)

Make your own healthy foods (especially snacks) lists of foods that you like. Make comments to indicate what craving/group it satisfies. Add to it as you try/find new foods. Use your list to help you plan meals and/or overcome cravings.

Chocolate Cravings

when I get that sudden crave for chocolate I grab a small handfull of semi-sweet chocolate chips, instead of reaching for the chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, brownies or other high calorie chocolate fix. 1 oz (about 60 chips) has just 132 calories.
