Face Addiction!

Don't avoid your addictions, face them head on! Whether it is food, alcohol, cigarettes or whatever else. Don't ignore it or avoid it because you will one day come face to face with your addiction and if you haven't learned and practiced the tools of not giving in to it you are setting yourself up for failure.

Natural Peanut Butter

Before you pop the seal off of your new jar of PB put it in the cabinet upside down. The oil will mix in much easier and without the mess.

Get kids interested in eating fruits and veggies.

Show them how it grows. Better yet teach them how to pick it and how to prepare it. My son loves apples even more when he gets to go pick it from the tree. He especially loves to find ones with worms in them...me not so much.

Share & cut in 1/2

I love granola bars but I don't really need to eat the whole thing and neither does my son so we share one. When I want a sandwich I make it open face or use a 1/2 of a piece to make my breakfast egg sandwich. It's just as satisfying.

Sneak in some extra sets

A few times a day when I go to the rest room at work I like to do a quick exercise to rev up a bit. Like some front and back kicks, squats, lunges etc. No one has to know... :)

Leftovers

I'm a big fan of making leftovers into a different meal. For example, last night I made spaghetti with ground turkey. I make it thick with veggies. For lunch today I used veggie broth and added some of the veggie and ground turkey laden sauce and made soup. Spaghetti turned minestrone.

Defrosting meat while at work.

I always worry that if i put meat out on the counter during the day while at work that it will defrost too quickly or I will end up getting home later than planned and I will have to trash it. So now I take two stainless bowls...you could use plastic...and I put ice in the larger of the two and set the bowl with the meat in that. Put a little ice around the sides. The meat will thaw but not too much.

Recipes Here, There & Everywhere

I'm one of those that sees a recipe that looks good and rips it out of my magazine or prints it off the internet and they end up stashed in a recipe folder and put away where I forget them. I've started pulling out at least one recipe a week and if I read and think, "Eh, I don't feel like making this..." instead of shoving back in the folder for a later time when "I might want to make that" I am tossing it. The clutter has got to go!
