Hunger at bay

I keep a protein bar in my purse for the days I cannot get back home to eat on time... it curbs my hunger and keeps me OUT of the drive thru!

Easy Skillet Meals

I use a cast iron skillet in the oven for easy "skillet meals" - Plus, portion control is already included!! Lay your seasoned meat in the bottom of a cast iron skillet, surround by veggies seasoned how you like - roast in the oven or poach as desired. emoticon

Curb Chocolate Craving

Chocolate Cheerios are the best thing for a chocolate craving. Have a serving of these little chocolate wonders and they banish the craving for the fatting counterparts. No guilt, no shame!!

Split a Meal with a Teen

I have a teen girl that eats more than a kids meal now, but THINKS she can eat a WHOLE big meal. She has the calorie burn to do it, but as we know... :( - so we are splitting meals now! I eat less and she does too plus she eats WAY faster than I do, so it makes a built in portion control for me!!

Keeping a kid with focus issues focused

Have a few kids that are focus challenged - bought a few cheap timers and they work WONDERS for keeping them "on track" for doing homework, brushing teeth, packing lunches - and I don't have to nag NEAR the amount I used to! Setting a predetermined amount of time set for each activity helps. emoticon

No bags of cheats here!

I shop the bulk bins at the higher end grocery stores when I want a fix for sweets. I am usually already there for something. If I want a white chocolate carmel cashew turtle, then I buy 1 and the rest stay on the "shelf" - I do not come home with a "bag" of cheats.

Pre-portioning Nuts

I buy large bags of raw nuts at bulk discount stores then roast them myself at home to control the amount of oil and salt added. Then I can divide them into little containers that hold about an ounce, making it easy to grab the little snacks on the go with an apple or other fruit.
