A Balanced Plate

When I put together a meal, I like to make sure it's balanced. I usually fill the plate 1/4 protein (meat, beans, etc), 1/4 carbs and 1/2 fruits or veggies. It leaves me satisfied and I usually don't end up scrambling to fill my protein quota at the end of the day.

Stay Full

I often get hungry between meals. A glass of water and an apple are life savers that set great examples for my students.

Yogurt in Place of Sour Cream

In the mood for a creamy dip? Use plain, non-fat yogurt (preferably organic!) and mix with seasonings (dill, etc) and dip with whatever you like.

Chewing Gum instead of sweets

If I get the munchies and start craving the sweets, I head for sugar free gum. It takes care of the chewing motion and the hint of sweet in the gum satisfies the sweet craving. When all the flavor is gone, my jaw got a workout, and I no longer crave sweets.

making Greek yogurt tolerable

Ive read the benefits of Greek yogurt. I cant stand the tart taste of it alone. So, I buy a large container at Costco, split it into 4 servings and add 1 Tablespoon of sugar free marmalade, jam or something similar and let it sit for a day or two. It is a special treat.

High Fiber Dinner to Stop Snacking at Night

Eating a high fiber dinner keeps me full so I don't eat after dinner.

Example - Basmati brown rice, sweet potato, pinto beans, salad, chicken.

The meals are interesting as I use the foods as sides or ingredients.
