Secrets of Success

Snack Secret




Eating sugar snap peas instead of chips or other high carb snacks has helped me stay on track to healthy eating. Using a scale and portion control has taught me to serve healthy portions not just serve.

More Information:

using 1 cup containers to pack for lunch is key to portion control for lunch too.

  • I like them too. The other thing I like are carrots. :) - by SHANIMCK
  • Snap Peas are great, and sweet, but I also like English Peas, I like that it takes time to peel them and eat the peas out, it helps with portion control, which is an issue for me. Also, just tried Jicama- kind of a cross between a potato and an apple. Makes a great snack plain or spritzed with lime juice. - by BOCAMOMOF3
    I love sugar snap peas in stir frys but have not ever tried them plain. I think they will be on my grocery list for the week. Thanks for the great idea. - by SEXYMAMA2FIVE

  • I love the 1/2 c and 1 c serving containers. I use them every day. Great to measure your cereal, and I measure out 1/2c of milk and put it in one of my empty water bottles. - by ANGELWINGS71079
