Healthy options means making healthy choices

My downfall is potato chips, crackers and chocolate. I love these! Of course, the sugar and salt don't contribute to healthy eating. The other day, I bought some "baked" potato chips that were low in fat. As I sat eating them, I read the label. Yuck - that was enough to say no to even this supposedly healthy option. My secret - don't buy them and bring them in my house to tempt me. Making healthy choices means having healthy options.

work on portion control

Before I serve a meal, I determine exactly what the correct portion is ahead of time and serve just that amount on the plate. Any left-overs are immediately put away so i'm not tempted to give myself seconds because its still sitting in the pan. emoticon

REPLACE YOUR DIET SODA WITH THIS

Replace your diet soda with a flavored liquid stevia in your water. It comes in many flavors and has no calories. Stevia is safe; plus it does not cause food carvings or feed your body toxins like the sweeteners in diet soda. Try stevia, I know you will like it , as well as save money!!

Eating Out Wisely

When we go to out to a place with limited healthy choices in the main dish category, I check out the appetizers. Often there will be one that is relatively healthy, will be a smaller portion since it's an appetizer. I add a salad with dressing on the side and I am set.

Peanut Butter trick

Love peanut butter? Then you'll know how a serving as a snack/dip doesn't seem like much. I found that if I microwave 1 Tbsp of natural peanut butter for 30 seconds, the warmth thins out the consistency and makes it seem more like 2 Tbsp, but with half the fat and cals. It lasts much longer for dipping with apples, celery, pears, bananas... sometimes I even toss in 1 tsp of mini chocolate chips for an extra special treat!
