I'v found chewing the Extra dessert gum in flavors like mint-chocolate ice cream, key lime pie, watermelon, strawberry-banana and strawberry cheesecake after dinner are a good choice for "dessert". I find I look forward to this treat
The title states how I felt when I started making a recipe & had already gone to the store, just to find out, I was out of something (happen to be garlic salt)! GRRRR! You know you've been in that situation before. There's a website called foodsubs.com which I used to make a GOOD substitute for it. In my situation, it had variations of garlic, then gave me the substitute/recipe of how to make it. If it a shot & see what you think! :) It may even save you some money!
Whenever you can, save a little gas and instead of driving to those nearby errands, walk or better yet run. It doesn't have to be a full out get drenched in sweat run, just enough to raise your heart rate. ie., a trip to the nail salon, library, post office (even fireworks last night) can gain me anywhere from 1.5 miles to 6 miles or more (there and then back).
"Dont trade what you want most, for what you want at this moment."
Any time I get unsolicited mail with postage paid return envelopes I send the empty envelope back through the mail. This way the US Postal service gets paid and it might just keep the cost of stamps down a little. I don't send anything back in the envelope so there is no risk or financial charge to me.
When tempted to eat something that isn't healthy or when I'm not really hungry, I remind myself that "nothing tastes as good as slim feels" and it refocuses me, putting my goal ahead of my desire at the moment to eat. Try it!
