add fiber

To add some fiber to a meal sprinkle in a high fiber cereal. I add a quarter to a half serving to regular cereal, yogurt, fruit salad or low fat pudding for the fiber and the crunch. This also allowed me to build my tolerance for fiber rich foods slowly.

Salads in a Restaurant

Whenever I order a salad, I ALWAYS ask for the dressing on the side. Instead of pouring it on my salad, I just dip the fork tines in the dressing. I don't eat much dressing, but every bite has a little bit on it.

Easy way to eat everything on your plate ;)

I love going out to eat on the weekend. Sometimes I like what I eat SO much that I want to empty my plate. What I have started doing is either ordering the half plate (yes, it exists, just ask) or asking the waiter to go ahead and box 1/2 of my dinner before it comes to the table.

Salad crunch and healthy dressing

Whenever dining out at a mexican restaurant I will ask for salsa instead of salad dressing. It is fresh and I don't have to worry about portion.

For crunch on my salad at home or at a salad bar, I have sunflower seeds instead of croutons. Adds protein and "good" fats.

Hope this helps...

Pasta Swap!

We all know whole-wheat pasta is good for you, but I swap in bean sprouts. Steam them, and the texture is similar to pasta. Plus, you get a couple more servings of veggies, and fewer calories. Make your own plum tomato marinara sauce (I add garlic, thyme and onion). Staves off a comfort food binge!

GO Green Drink Mix

I had been trying to get used to the taste of the GO Green Drink Packets for a while but without success. So, I started to use them in my smoothies instead. The taste was incredible and I was able to use the product without any problem.

Mixing Yogurts

I know the Greek style yogurts are better for me, but I still like the flavor of Yoplait light better. I have taken to mixing one part Yoplait light to one part Greek no-fat yogurt for the perfect blend of sweetness and health!

Fruit Smoothies

If you're having trouble getting fruits into your diet, or into your kids' diet, try making fruit smoothies. One simple option is strawberries and bananas. Just whip it in the blender and you'll have a healthy snack or dessert while getting your daily fruits into your diet.
