Cold Water

Every night, before I go to bed, I make sure that I put my water glass (holds just over 3 cups) into the fridge so that when I get up in the morning, I have a nice cold container of water waiting for me - to start my day right.

Banishing Mindless Eating

Whenever I feel like I'm in danger of mindless eating I brush my teeth with a minty toothpaste or have an altoid - nothing tastes as good when combined with minty breath.

Start the day off right!

Start your day with a protein-fiber-veggie-fruit smoothie = a great start to healthy eating the rest of the day. It's quick, healthy, and you can drink on the go if you have to. Tip: pre-measure fruits-veggies ahead of time and put in baggies.

"tricking" myself into eating healthily

I make snacks that are healthy for the kids, so that when I pick at the leftovers I don't sabotage my efforts. It also makes sure to fill them up with healthy food instead of junk.

Planning Meals

I always try to plan my meals either the night before or the next morning for the whole day. Really helps me, especially if I am really busy. Then I don't get caught off guard and eat the wrong thing.

Meal Planning

I use the nutrition tracker to plan my meals for the day, including snacks. i look forward to, and enjoy, every meal and snack, and this strategy helps me avoid going over my daily nutrition goals.

Soy beans

If I am hungry I found 1/4 cup of soy beans and 1 cup of plain non fat yogurt is filling and is a healthy snack

Snack vs Mini-Meal

It may be all in the mind, but using the term mini-meal instead of snack helps me to select healthier options when planning and eating between meals.
