steaming instead of cooking

Instead of cooking vegetables steam them or use a pressure cooker. This way you save time and keep flavour and vitamins that might get lost during a longer cooking period.

Listening to upbeat music while jogging

When I go jogging I take my MP3player with me and cue up upbeat music, something with a fast beat. This takes my mind of the distance I still have to run and keeps up my pace at the same time! emoticon

Alternative mode of transport

Instead of taking your car to work hop on a bike. emoticon

You get some exercise, it's cheaper and better for the environment.

Roasted seeds and nuts

If seeds and nuts are roasted their flavour gets more distinct. Instead of buying them, roast them yourself. Just add them to a frying pan WITH NO FAT and carefully heat them, once they start to turn brown, remove pan from heat and put the seeds and nuts into an airtight container.

Rhubarb, delicious, low calories, fibre & potassium

Spring is the time for rhubarb, it's high in vitamin C, has on average 1g of fibre per stalk, is not bad in the potassium department and tastes good.
Instead of sugar add sweet fruit like pineapple, apple or strawberries. Topped with low fat yogurt and some seeds & you have a tasty and healthy lunch

Salads for lunch save money and calories

I usually take a big mixed salad to work for my lunch break; iceberg and other lettuces are cheap and low in calories. To spice it all up I add sesame or sunflower seeds, some veggies or fruit like pineapple, cantaloupe. For a dressing I go with oil & vinegar, walnut-, sesame-, or pumpkinseedoil.
