Preparation

Plan to prepare your fresh veggies and fruits on the day you purchase them--clean, slice or cut, and put into easily recognized containers in the FRONT of your refrigerator. This will make it easy to select something healthy to snack on or include in your breakfast or lunch.

REALLY managing your portion control!

I have found that when I am eating a meal{for the past 3 mos.},I can slowly lower my intake of certain items like cottage cheese, ice cream and margarine and I don't miss the extra helping at all. For example, take margarine on toast.I use Smart Balance Light because it's high in omega-3's .

Preparation for Healthy Eating/ Snacking at Work

The night before work, I use sandwich baggies and storage containers to add pre-measured food items to my lunch sack. I include 3-5 servings of fruits and veggies. Then I store these in the refrigerator overnight and grab it to go in the morning.
