end of the day

I save a few calories for a treat at the end of the day. Tonight I had a cup of blackberries with a tbsp of raw sugar and a cup of decaf flavored tea. It satisfied my sweet tooth and the tea was warm and made me relaxed!

no secret really but...

count calories on here in the food tracker, it wakes you up big time as to what you're eating. I was easily eating 2500 or more, and adding in drinks is why I am where I am today. Keep tracking!!! Every taste, drink etc.

Find FRESH Fruit & Vegetables

The entire spring, summer, and fall season I peruse farmer's markets to get the absolutely freshest fruit and vegetables. I even go pick my own strawberries!

Easy Black Beans and Rice

I tried a new quick meal tonight for dinner. I reheated 1/2 c. cooked brown rice with 1/2 c. rinsed and well drained canned black beans. When it was hot I topped it with 2 tablespoons of medium hot salsa, and it made a tasty meal with some roasted asparagus spears and a tossed salad.

Time In. Time Out - breaking the missing people EE cycle

30 minute shows actually help me SLOW DOWN. Time meal to begin & end with show.
Eating alone & in silence = amplifies the aloneness.

I eat faster to be through and out of the silence. Emptiness, missing people cycle that sends me to Emotional Eating.

Tempeh, it tastes like Chicken!

Pick up a block of Tempeh, a soy-based meat substitute. Cut it into small chunks and steam it for 5-8 minutes. You can chill it and add to "Chicken Salad" or any type of chicken casserole. No animal products, no cholesterol, low fat.
