What's healthy in the Junk Food You are craving after workout?

I've noticed that after a good workout, when I am suddenly "craving" some junk food like ice cream or something cheese-y etc, if I take a moment to think about what is in the food that might be soothed with a healthier substitute. For ice cream, I usually find a small container of Greek yogurt with fruits or some nuts satisfy my craving and give me good nutrients for my muscles after the workout.

If you know you eat when your'e bored, eat tactile foods.

This is certainly not a new idea, but it's on my mind tonight: If you know you eat out of boredom, get yourself foods to snack on that are "stimulating" to the senses in some way. For example, baby carrots are adorable to look at and make that wonderful crunch when you chew them. Pistachios have those shells that are so satisfying to snap apart. Use the sensory elements of food to satisfy boredom instead of just the flavor alone.

Quick, easy, crunchy breakfast

For a quick breakfast, I mix together a small serving of fat-free cottage cheese or plain yogurt with high-fiber cereal, a few seeds or nuts, & fruit (either to the mix or on the side.) Because I don't use milk, the cereal stays crunchy. I never use the same mixture, but for example, this morning I had 50 gr cot cheese with 10 gr Fiber One, 20 gr Flax Plus Pumpkin cereal, & 10 gr pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for a total of 202 calories.... (click title for more info)

5-20 Seconds To Freshen Up!

Just spread out a single layer evenly on a plate and microwave for 5-20 seconds. Start out at 5 seconds and increase in 5 second intervals until you get to know how strong your microwave is. Let it cool down and it will be as fresh and crunchy as new! Super easy solution to not wasting food!

Add Crunch to a Soup

I love making soups and I usually make enough for 3-4 days. To keep it crunchy, I finely cut some cabbage and line the bowl with the cabbage and ladle in some hot soup. The cabbage takes on the soup's taste and also stays crunchy.
