Slow It Down (Eating, I Mean)

(I live alone, so this is easy for me.)
Prep your meal...have everything ready to go. Then, make & eat your first course - salad or soup - & THEN cook & eat your main course. By the time you eat the main course, you will begin to feel full from the salad (or soup) & naturally eat less.

Flatout Flatbread

Flatout Flatbreads (I get mine at Costco). 100 calories for a really big serving (8 or 9 fiber grams). Use them for wraps, pizzas, quesadillas, home made pita chips - endless possiblities. They really help me get enough fiber.

Shred Head

We keep a bag of shredded cabbage on hand to add a healthy kick to meals. Very good on sandwiches as it adds bulk and a good crunch (remember putting potato chips on your sandwich?) Toss a handful into a stir fry or soup. Toss a little with rice wine vinegar for a quick pickle.

Picky Eater!!!

I am a very picky eater so for me I have a few things I like such as sweet potatoes,eggs,turkey & chicken. I'm not a big fruit & veggie eater (texture is a big deal for me). So It is a challenge to try new things. Tried a pear for first time in my life!! Not too bad tasting either

Momma Was Right When She Said To Eat Your Veggies

Make an effort to get as many fruits & veggies in by lunchtime so as to reach your 8 servings daily. Put extra veggies in an omelet, make a large salad, a loaded veggie sandwich or even a nice homemade veggie soup. Even snacking on raw veggies & fruit adds up quickly & helps aid in weightloss

Special Drink...

I'm a private chef so pairing wine with food is a must, except not for me trying to lose weight! Instead I put sparkling water in a wine glass with a tiny bit of Pomegranate juice and some fresh slices of lime, lemon and orange and a few fresh berries. It's fresh and delicious!

Serving sizes

I check the serving size on chips or crackers and put that amount into individual bags, so I always eat only one serving without having to check each time or be tempted to eat more.
