Instead of eating a lot of sandwiches for lunch I have been eating a salad at lunch and dinner everyday this summer. I have been thinking of the lettuce as my bread and putting everything on the salad that I would have eaten on a sandwich. The end result is that I eat more vegetables.

Seriously just eat a salad right away. It will help you digest and feel more virtuous too. What's that, you ate raw choc chip cookie dough? Eat a salad. You ate a Big Mac? Eat a salad. You ate the rest of the Girl Scout cookies? Say it with me now, "eat a salad!" 306
Hello fellow Sparkies! Something to try: instead of pouring your salad dressing on your salad, try pouring it into a different (smaller) container...when you go to eat your salad, dip your fork into the container with each bite. This way you are eating WAY less calories, fat, carbs...etc. because you aren't 'drowning' your salad in the dressing, but still getting the good taste with every bite :)
