Quiches Save My Winters!

In the wintertime, I cook a quiche every Sunday night to last me through the work week. It's quick and easy and you can create different combinations so you don't get bored! It really helps me not skip breakfast, or even worse, over-eat and feel sluggish the rest of the morning.

pumpkin yogurt

I love Greek yogurt but can't get used to eating the plain variety. Recently while in the Amish Country in Pennsylvania I bought something called pumpkin butter (it doesn't contain butter -- it's more like a pumpkin pie filling) I add a tablespoon of this to my plain Greek yogurt and it's delicious. And the calorie count is no higher than if I were to eat the vanilla flavor. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Cinnamon -a high fiber way to add flavor to yogurt and smoothies

Just one teaspoon of cinnamon has about 5% of your daily fiber quota - it is a great choice for adding flavor and fiber to your morning yogurt, toast, or smoothie.

Easily remove an egg yolk

If you're like me and not supposed to eat the egg yolk (but love eggs), use a turkey baster. Take the rubber portion off, squeeze it, hold it over the yolk, and then stop squeezing. The suction will force the yolk (and only the yolk) into the handle. Voilà! Egg whites! :)

High Carbs & High Protein Combo for Breakfast

Whenever I eat a breakfast with high carbs (20g+) AND high protein (15g+), it's much easier for me to stay in calorie range. I know that the idea of high carbs so early in the day can sound scary, but as a member of SP for almost four years, I can assure you that this combined with protein will shut hunger pangs DOWN.

Read even the Healthy Food ingredient lists, SNEAKY Food industry!

Be sure to read all packaged food labels. The food industry is sneaky with the chemicals and word replacements. Soy and sugar replacements seem to be in everything!

Even the healthiest “packaged” foods can shock you. READ every label. The food industry can be SNEAKY!!

Eat Complex Carbs in the AM

I don't like sweet foods early in the morning. I prefer salty foods. I heat a package of Quinoa and Brown Rice in the mircrowave, use 1 cup of it and chop up some leftover chicken into it, for a bowl of warm and savory for breakfast. My body uses the fuel for the morning and I don't hungry again until late afternoon. emoticon

Bright and Early

I get up at 4:30 a.m. for work. Before I even leave the bed I do a few little stretches to help my back trouble. Then I take my shower and then eat a small breakfast to get me going. Then I login to SparkPeople to do my daily spin and log in my breakfast. I go back to my bedroom and do a few jumping jacks and some knee lifts, leg lifts and side kicks to boost my morning energy.

Eat your spanakopita (Greek spinach pie)

You can eat vegetables in lots of ways. You can eat them raw,boiled,roasted or fried. But what happens if you're not a veggie person or your kids don't eat their veggies? Try making a spinach pie recipe. It's healthy,tasty and you and your family will love it. It's a good source of Vitamin A & C.

Easy Way To Poach Eggs

I LOVE poached eggs for breakfast and a fast and easy way to poach them is in the microwave. I get a bowl and fill it about 1/3 with water and heat it for 2 minute in the microwave. I then crack open two eggs into the water and microwave for another minute. Once done, I gently pour out excess water and then add salt and pepper to taste. YUM!

Vision Board & GOALS

I "vision collaged" my back of the door mirror, this way I "SEE" it all the time!!! Everyday, sometimes several times a day! Foods, Exercises, Physically fit bodies, places I want to go and things I want to do!! Anything that is something to strive for or look forward to I put it on the edge of that mirror. SO when I do that one last check in the mirror before I sweep out the door I know what I want in LIFE!!! EVerything I want to live for is there: Prayer, Familiy, Friends.Healthy Lifestyle!

Quick Fix for Breakfast

Our lives are so busy that many individuals forget the most important booster of the day. I make sure that I eat breakfast and I don't like skipping meals.

I would have an Atkins Protein Shake along with Yoplait Light Yogurt mixed with a cup of fresh fruit (grapes). This seems to satisfy 1 fruit serving, dairy product and protein. A very good start for morning balance.

If this is too much you could omit the protein shake or yogurt as both contain protein. You'll feel more satisfied.

smoothie secrets

When you're making a smoothie with & it ends up tasting watered down or too thin....try adding in a little scoop of oatmeal to thicken it up. Instead of adding more yogurt/milk, etc. Much healthier, it won't melt down into the smoothie, and it mixes in awesome & you can barely even taste it in there with all your other healthy ingredients! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fruit Smoothie Freezer Packs!

Each week, I buy 3 fresh bananas, plus one bag each of frozen mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Then I divide these up into 6 baggies, each containing 1/2 of a banana and 1/4 c. of each other kind of fruit. I store the baggies in the freezer and in the morning, take one out, put it in the blender with 1c. of almond milk and 1 c. of warm water. I blend it for a quick & healthy smoothie breakfast for me and my husband!

Start Each Day Like it was on Purpose

I get up a little early so I can make my coffee or pot of tea and read the news, or play on Sparkpeople. It helps me wake up gently and look forward to the day rather than loathe my alarm clock and life outside of my cozy bed. Do something you enjoy right away. If you must get up, talk yourself into it with something special. emoticon

Protein Up Your Breakfast!

Eating a high protein breakfast keeps me fuller longer than the same number of calories would with a lower calorie meal. I don't have cravings, I am more alert and less likely to snack mindlessly because my blood sugar level is happy.

Quick Fruit Fix with Yoplait Smoothie Bags

Forget the smoothie, it's great as an on-the-go bag of fruit and yogurt. Just grab a fork or dig in with your hands; there are a few varieties and it's only 70 calories per 1/2 cup serving. Although it's kept in the freezer, the fruit doesn't get rock solid, just very cold and refreshing! Perfect for hot days. Another plus - because it's frozen, there are no worries about it going bad.

Power-Packed Superfood Breakfast with 4 Servings of Freggies!

I swear by Green Smoothies to fuel my mornings. A big handful of spinach, 1/2 a frozen banana, 1/3 cup each frozen blueberries and blackberries, and a scoop of protein power blended with almond milk makes a CRAZY good smoothie with about 4 servings of fruits and veggies. I drink one every day, and it's enough to fuel half marathon training AND my hectic mornings teaching middle school. Once you start drinking these for breakfast, you'll never want anything else!

CocoMama Quinoa Cereal

I saw CocoMama Quinoa ready to eat cereal at Whole Foods and was excited to give it a try. I'm not a huge fan of Quinoa but the flavors, Cinnamon Banana and Wild Blueberry sounded sooo good. Tried it...not so much. The cereal is overly sweet and the sweetness does nothing to mask the bitterness of the Quinoa. If you like Quinoa then you may like this, but it's not for me.

Off the couch, on the floor..

Determined to stay off the couch in the evening after a long day and exercise, I found if I sit on the floor I end up doing all my Calisthenics, yoga poses and stretching, while hanging with hubby and enjoying our tv show.

Special types of TEA + LEMON = weight loss!

Yogi Tea's = Green Tea Super Antioxidant, Detox, (kidney and liver) and Healthy Fasting + 1/2 a lemon juiced (you can just squeeze it in). Not only are you detoxing, but you are kick starting your metabolism in the morning AND kicking your hunger to the curb. No sweeteners needed for this drink. Its really good... make sure to drink warm as it tricks your brain into thinking that you are full.
