When I'm in the mood for something cold and sweet, instead of ice cream or sugar laden popsicles, I eat frozen grapes. When I get home from the grocery store, I take half of the grapes I've bought and put them into mini ziploc bags (20 in each) and throw them into the freezer.
Each bag of frozen grapes is only about 40 calories with less than a gram of fat. You also get a serving of fruit as a bonus!

Put down the frozen, processed, low-cal, low-carb, low-fat franken foods! When I cook with just a few quality, fresh, whole ingredients, I find I am satisfied with a smaller portion. Nothing beats fresh produce, in-season, from a local farmer. Look for quality organic local meats and keep your costs down by reducing your portion sizes. You'll lose weight, put better fuel in your body, and support your local food systems, all at once.
Local organic food is better for our bodies, and for the earth. The food uses much less energy to get from the farm to your plate, and thus has a much lower environmental impact. A recent study found that organic food is healthier, and helps regenerate quality soil.
