Food Prep is KEY to success!!

I made a commitment to shop, wash, dry and cut up my veggies as soon as I came home from the supermarket -- I did and it's working out GREAT!!! Then I took another day and grilled all my proteins, chicken, fish, turkey burgers and pan fried scallop -- NO MORE EXCUSES to NOT EAT healthy!!

CREAMY SALAD DRESSING

I make creamy salad dressings by using 0% Greek Yogurt and then I thin it out with some vinegar and olive oil. So the other day I mixed some yogurt with dry ranch dressing and then thinned it out -- DELICIOUS and VERY LOW CAL, just the olive oil counts!! YUM!!!

Wait & See Approach

If I feel like snacking I chew some gum first, it usually squashes the craving, then I try drinking water. Sometimes I'm just thirsty or feel the need to chew and it turns off the cravings!!! If I still feel hungry down the road then I will grab a snack but I usually wait and see first -- IT WORKS!
