One of my favorite low calorie snacks is frozen pineapple chunks. They sell them at target. I find them great to munch on. They take awhile to eat & taste great.
I am going to try to set up my menu for the next day. Making sure I have carbs throughout the day, and then making sure I have 3 vegetables, and 2 fruits, and enough protein. By planning ahead I can adjust and make sure I have snacks and food spread evenly through the day, and be in the range 4 me
No more butter and brown sugar for me! I switched to steel cut oats made with Vanilla Almond milk.
I slice a whole lemon and put freshmint mint leaves into a glass pitcher of ice water for a spa-like taste.
I don't like bananas once they "over-ripen". So I freeze my bananas if I can't eat them in time. Frozen bananas are a great treat and they work well in a fruit smoothy too!
whenever my stomach starts to signal my brain that I am hungry, I drink a big glass of water and wait about 20 minutes before I eat. For some reason the water makes my choices better.
For breakfast, I stir 1-2 teaspoons of peanut butter into my prepared old fashioned or steel cut oatmeal. I find that it keeps me very satisfied throughout the morning.
We all have those 'want something sweet, want something salty' cravings. I bash them both with a small apple, cut and sliced and 2 tbsp of peanut butter. This way the apple is sweet, the PB is a little salty and I don't botch my diet, but instead get in a daily fruit and good protein/fat, too!
So I love ham and mayo sandwiches so i figured out a way to cut down on the mayo but still have it. Instead of putting it on the bread which soaks it in and makes me want to put more on it, I spead it on the ham. I can see the mayo all over and I use only 1/2 tablespoon!
