Cup of milk first thing in the morning

I wake up @ 6:30 am but get around to eating breakfast only by 8:30 am after the kids have gone to school. But my nutritionist said it is not good to give a long gap between wake up time and breakfast and so she suggested I drink a cup of milk.

Planning Ahead

I love eating dinner with my family. I have been eating smaller, more nutritious lunches so I can eat a regular dinner. Before I eat though, I put the food in that we are having and that way I can adjust my calorie intake if I need to, including trying to get in the zone on carbs and proteins.

Pizza Craving Cure

I LOVE pizza, but hate the calories that come with it. Buy "Earthgrains Natural Whole Wheat Thin Buns" which are 100 calories for two halves. Recipe in more information. Result? ~200 calories, 16 g fiber, and a portion friendly snack thats easy!

mini meals

Eat 5 to 6 mini meals each day to keep from getting so hungry. Eat fruits, vegetables or low fat granola bars to keep calories in check.

Planning Meals for the Week

Planning out my Menus for the week helps our family to stay on track. And definately keeps us from eating out, because no one could think of what to have for dinner.

Dessert Coffee

Take your favorite coffee and add nutri-sweet flavors and/or FF creamer or 1 tsp vanilla. Top with a couple squirts of FF whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. I call it dessert - drink it slow and enjoy the flavors.

@ work? Have group "Salad of the Week" !

Every Thursday at our school for the Spring and Fall months we organize a "Salad of the Week". There is a sign-up board with a theme generated. Everyone signs up and brings an item and we all share in the goodness. You can pick and choose what you want for your own salad.

chocolate craving?

11 ounces of chocolate soy milk has only 200 calories. You get 7 grams of protein and a good amount of vitamins and minerals. Compare to a hershey bar at 230 calories, almost half your daily value in saturated fat, and zero vitamins and minerals.

Kid's Snack

During the summer or on other warm days when my children want cold or cool snacks like ice cream, I let them eat frozen peas and carrots. They love it, it cools them down some, and gives them some nutrients.

A Tip For Eating Out Or Even Delivery, BEFORE You even See The Food!

When you order food (for delivery OR at the restaraunt). Tell the person taking the orders, when youre food is cooked to put 1/2 of youre food into a To-Go box. Then, when all the food is present, you can relax about how much food &/or calories youre about to consume.
