The little freeze top containers are extremely nice....just fix your vegey's and pop the top from the freezer and your vegey's are crisp and fresh when you decide to eat them later in the day. I got mine at CVS Pharmacy...I had a gift card.
After eating my healthy meals i usually will get hungry and want a sweet or salty snack . so i learned that chewing a piece of Trident peppermint gum (its better for your teeth ) the peppermint really kills all my cravings !
One thing I really like that fixes my chocolate cravings is Yoplait Whipped Chocolate Mousse. It has 140 calories and is premeasured so I'm not tempted to cheat. When the weather is hot, I freeze it to use as ice cream. The whipped freezes better than regular yogurt.
I'm trying to eat more superfoods. Sweet Potato, Blueberry, almonds, garlic, and avacado are easy to add into the diet and they taste wonderful. I have been making microwaved baked potato chips with the sweet potato. They are great with curried yog. dressing.
My wife and I started by not ordering soda when going out to eat (saved money). Then simply didn't buy any soda next time at the store. Now we are both off soda. Iced tea has made a great, low cost substitute.
If your craving something that is out of your calorie range, create and play in the kitchen to create a new healthier version. Another good one is to use substitues, freeze pudding cups for 3 hours - is just like soft ice cream and alot less calories and portion controlled.
