This is a good idea for the following reasons: It's beautiful out there with trees and plants and the like, fresh air is good for you and can help you clear your head if you're stressed, the sun = vitamin D, and, of course, going outside means you're moving, which is good for you!
When I was visiting my sister in Dallas, she introduced me to Sweet Leaf's flavored liquid stevia drops, which can be added to water or anything else you want to jazz up a little. It comes in a wide variety of flavors like Vanilla Creme, Chocolate Raspberry, and even Root Beer! I've tried it in my water, iced tea and coffee -- delicious!
Having a good breakfast every morning sets me up for eating well the rest of the day...Every Sunday evening, I make a batch of oatmeal or plain yogurt with fresh fruit parfaits and pack it up in single serving reusable containers.

Just had a wonderful, filling meal, that was 100% from Trader Joe's. I combined a third pkg of their frozen brown rice, with a half pkg. of their Chicken Asada and a half pkg. of their Julienne Sauté Vegetables. 287 calories and my plate was FULL! I also recently tried their Reduced Guilt Mac & Cheese (good, but a bit on the small side) and the Reduced Guilt bakes Ziti. Thought I'd be disappointed in the sauce for the Ziti but it was quite good. (I added more Parm. though!) So Good! Thanks TJ's!

I am a particular tea drinker, and plain green tea is usually too bitter for me to drink. My all time favorite tea is Stash brand Morrocan Mint Green tea, it's so good I don't need to add any sweetener or anything to it, but it takes really good with a packet of splenda too.
