Give Relatives A Serving Size Package of Tempting Foods

Give relatives who want a food that tempts you a single serving package.e.g. snack size chips, single ice cream bar. No leftovers, no temptation! And talk to them about the myth of willpower.

Easy Portion Control & Money Saver

Even with the healthier whole grain Crackers, Chips, Pretzels...every good intention of sticking with the recommended serving size becomes defeat if the box is within sight. SO, I decided to count out the serving size into little baggies...now I have the right amount each time no guesswork after the meal...guilt free! Slows down my eating because what you see is what you get. Saves money buying bulk instead of individual packages and baggies can be used more than once. emoticon

Preparation = control

Sometimes when I want to snack and know I'm not really hungry, I make something low cal that takes time to make. Ex. I bake tortilla chips and make fresh salsa, drawing out the time, letting the oven preheat, etc. It prevents me from eating random snacks and builds up the snack, so I get more pleasure from it and delay myself which allows me to take a step back and realize I'm not truly hungry.

Southwest Enchilada Black Bean Dip-Fritos brand-actually looked at the label...

I'm a sucker for chips & dip!! Bought a can of Fritos Southwest Enchilada Black Bean Dip & didn't open it because I was sure it wouldn't be good for me, but then I looked at the label & a serving is just 30 calories and NO FAT!! Imagine my surprise!! Not everything Fritos makes is terrible for you. Had a serving of the dip with a serving of baked tortilla chips - a pretty good snack all-in-all!!

Pop Chips - a Great Potato Chip Alternative!!! Low Fat, All Natural, Healthiest chip I could find.

I LOVE CHIPS - the crunches, the flavors, etc, but they are always sooo Bad for you. I found Pop Chips crunch perfectly awesome, and taste great too. They are never fried, never baked, all natural, nothing fake or phony.
* no trans fat
* no saturated fat
* no cholesterol
* no preservatives
They are about 120 calories for 20 - 22 of these chips. A great filling serving.

"Go-With" for Salsa

I absolutely LOVE salsa and especially love it with Multigrain Nacho Chips but hate the sodium, fat and calories. And I know I will eat more than I should. So, to enjoy the salsa without the guilt, I dip Melba Toast instead. It tastes delicious and satisfies the crunchy snack demon without adding too much sodium, fat and calories.

Craving chips?

Whenever I'm craving a bag of flavored chips, I cut up half a romaine lettuce heart into strips, then season it with whatever I'm want--this works well with products like Mrs Dash, curry powder, and those generic salt-free spice rubs, like cajun flavoring, etc. Crunchy and yummy without all the fat!

When the Chips are down

I love chips, they are my downfall. I have been able to combat the urge even though I still buy them for my husband, by buying flavours he likes and I detest such as Dill Pickle. I also buy the ones I cant have, as I have food allergies and some contain what I am allergic to.

Fruit on the counter, other snacks out of sight

For snacks, make healthy options a priority with easy access. Keep a bowl of various fruit on the counter or table in easy reach. Those other snacks, if you have them in the house, keep out of sight. When you eat processed snacks, don't forget to measure out a single serving and close the rest of the bag up and put it away. Out of sight, out of mind! Less temptation! emoticon Choose the healthier option.

When you just have to have chips

The no salt added variety can deliver the crunch without the added sodium. I just have to have chips if I eat a tuna sandwich. This is a smart way to fill the crunch.
Baked is good too, if you can find reduced sodium.
