Grilled veggies

When we fire up the charcoal grill for steak, fish or chicken, we also grill sliced zucchini, yellow summer squash, onion slices and sliced mushrooms sprayed with a little canola oil and seasoned with Cavender's Salt Free Greek Seasoning.

Easy Cup Clean up!

Before you measure out honey or any other sticky substance in your measuring cup, be sure to spray it with some non-stick spray! This will help it slide right out making clean up a breeze (well I should say easier, a breeze would be having someone else do it for you)!

Stop 'pouring' the salad dressing on!

Hello fellow Sparkies! Something to try: instead of pouring your salad dressing on your salad, try pouring it into a different (smaller) container...when you go to eat your salad, dip your fork into the container with each bite. This way you are eating WAY less calories, fat, carbs...etc. because you aren't 'drowning' your salad in the dressing, but still getting the good taste with every bite :)

10,000 steps while at work

To get my 10,000 steps in while I'm at the office, if I need to make a copy of a couple things throughout the day, I take each one to the copier separately. I also do the same if I need to bring something to someone, I take the long way and walk past where I need to be to throw in a couple extra steps. It adds about 3,000 - 4,000 steps to my daily goal.

Keep a COMPLETE food diary. Be honest with yourself—it is a fantastic way to help control what you eat. If you bite it, write it!

Chilling Treats

when I buy fresh fruit, I always prepare it, (peel and dice) then put some in the fridge, some in serving size bags in the freezer. I use the frozen servings in lunch boxes, they keep the food cool and thaw by lunch time. For snacks, I only let them partially thaw, enough for comfortable eating.
These are expecially good for hot weather snacks or refreshers at work like construction where you need extra liquid and cooling. emoticon

encouraging someone else, etc.
Little accomplishments add up!

Try This Idea For Your Next Party

At a party, stash ice in a colander set on top of a bucket or a bowl. Water will drain out, and guests will get only the solid stuff.
