Stressed spelled backwards is Desserts!

I keep a bag of small apples, blueberries, strawberries or whatever fruit is in season and reach for that instead of the proverbial candy dish when things get hectic at work!

Blueberries in Season!

Fresh Blueberries are in season and taste great! I love eating them with plain yogurt or just as they are.

Good Eats

Keep it simple and enjoy foods that are the least processed. When I stay away from white foods, sweets, and sodas, I always feel better and more energized!

The fewer ingredients on the label the better

When I look at food labels, if I can't pronounce or recognize what the words are, I choose something else. Less processed foods are better for you.

Eat Foods You Can Pronounce/Recog
nize
on Labels

I eat foods that are close to natural as possible and contain less than 5 ingredients on the label. Anything I don't recognize I put back. Watch for too many sugars, sodium, etc.

Keep it Simple

Avoid sugars and highly processed foods as much as possible. For me, they seem to trigger more food cravings and overeating. Doing these 2 things is the secret to good health and weight loss.

I tend to eat much less if I look in a full length mirror before eating at home.
