90 cal Fiber One chocolate Brownie

Pretty decent chocolatey snack, just enough to cure a little craving, and get a little extra fiber at the same time. I like it, and am keeping a box on hand for those sneaky chocolate cravings!

Thomas's mini pretzel bagels

I love mall pretzels! But they are definitely a no-no if I want to make this goal, so I found a decent alternative. These little pretzel bagels, while not the same in flavor, they are darn good! I heat mine up a few seconds in the microwave and dip it in honey mustard dip. They are also a great alternative to regular bread once in a while. They come unsalted, with the salt pack included, but I like them without it, and only .5 g of fat per bagel. I found them at Walmart. emoticon

Getting ready for a garage sale

As you start putting things together for a garage sale ( I usually start piling things into a spare room or downstairs), I price everything before I put it in a pile. Then, come early saturday morning, I just take it out to the driveway and organize it. One less thing to do!

turkey sausage

I already use ground turkey to replace ground beef in a lot of my recipes, but now I have started adding ground turkey sausage. For spaghetti, I use half and half, and it meatloaf I might use half ground beef and half turkey sausage. It adds really good flavor! emoticon

Vitatops deep chocolate muffins

I found these after reading about them in a Sparkpeople Email. Decided to give them a try. Do they taste like the decadent yummy chocolate muffins we would love to be eating? No...but they do satisfy a sweet tooth, and have 9 grams of fiber...I think they are pretty decent and keep them around for a quick start to a busy morning or a sweet snack in the afternoon.

Breakfast on the go

I love cereal in the morning, but sometimes I dont have the time to sit and eat it. For that reason, I pick a cereal that is good for eating with fingers (honey chex, quaker oatmeal squares ect.) and fill a coffee mug with milk. I munch on my cereal while driving, and drink my milk. Getting the nutrition from a bowl of cereal, just not mixed together. It helps me stay on track!

keeping gum in my kitchen

Ive started keeping my favorite gum on the counter of my kitchen. That way whenI have a sweet tooth, or just grazing through, I grab a piece and walk out. It works pretty well, and even if I spit it out 15 minutes later, by then the craving has passed. emoticon

use tsp, tbs, cups, ect

I found that calories, fats, and carbs were sneaking into my diet, since I was just eyeballing serving sizes (and not very well). So now I keep a few measuring tools close at hand...usually in the drying rack in the sink or in a small bowl. That way, I know exactly how much ingredient (like sugar in my coffee, and rice on my plate...) I am using!

cutting butter and oil

When I make a recipe from a magazine or cookbook, I usuallly cut the butter and/or oil used for saute veggies in half. I usually find I dont need as much as was written, and if I do, I can always add a little more at a time. Every little bit helps!

Crockpot Liners

These things are awesome. I hate cleaning my crockpot, its heavy and akward. These things work great, and all I have to is pull out the liner once everything is cooled off and throw it away. Hardly any mess....love it.
