I spend some time when returning from the grocery store to wash, chop, dice, slice all my fruits (berries and melon) and veggies (especially lettuce, carrots, celery, jicama, tomatoes) and lemons and limes for my water. They are all ready for me to grab when making meals or planning snacks.
It seems that if I eat a snack (usually popcorn) at night, the next night I crave it terribly. After a few nights of not eating it, the cravings subside. I think cravings sometimes are a result of habit, not hunger.
I use Bulghur/Oats/Quinoa/Amaranth Seeds instead of Rice with mixed Pulses/Dals to make a thick Indian stew called Khichri.I also add different fresh Vegetables and season this with 1-2 tbsps. Ghee to which I add various Dry Spices like Cinnamon Bark etc.I eat it with fresh Yoghurt and Cucumber Dip
I have been enjoying canned beets in my chopped salads. To cut down on the salad dressing, I have been pouring some of the canned beet juice over the salad and adding Mrs Dash or another spice mix on top for added flavor.
I find healthy foods wherever I am. At restaurants or traveling. Visiting friends or relatives.
I used to worry about eating at night, but now, I break my food into mini meals. I can eat guilt free without messing up my metabolism. Coupled with tons of water, eating has become the key to my success.
Juice can be high sugars and calories. However, if you cut it with water, it lasts longer, tastes less sweet, but just as satisfying, and keeps those calories in check. Instead of water, use club soda for a great soda substitute! I now only use a splash of juice for flavor.
SINCE I HAVE BEEN EATING HEALTHY I DON'T HAVE ANT STOMACH PAIN. SO I GAVE UP THE PRILOSEC, YEAH !!!!!!
I try to stay below 15 grams of fat for each meal.
When I find myself craving chips and salsa, I make myself a big lettuce salad and cover it in salsa. The lettuce has the great crunchy satisfaction as tortilla chips - without the bad stuff. Honestly, I like it so much I do this at least three times a week now!
