Favorite that adds exercise

To be able to add exercise to everyday activities, my favorite is to do toe touches as sorting the clothes for washing and side bends putting them in the washer and moving to or out of the dryer.

Portion is everything

You can eat whatever you'd like, just be sure to watch the portion size and to only eat it once in awhile. It is not good to make a daily habit of treats. A good example, birthday cake, cut your piece in half or quarters and either shar or freeze for another month or two weeks.

Be Gone Sticky Cups!!

Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.

re-heating

To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

Healthy Snack

My very favorite snack is so easy and meets my sweet cravings.

SLices of apples with plain ground cinnamon sprinkled over them. I find the sweetness from the apple mixes with the cinnamon thus I don't need any sugar added.

Salad Dressing

It is sometimes difficult for me to keep from getting too much dressing on my salads. My hubby came up with transferring the liquid dressings into a spritz bottle. I love Ken's raspberry and walnut vinaigrette and now all I need is a spritz or sometimes two and save tons of calories in fat.
