I eat the same breakfast every day to lower my cholestrol---oatmeal with usually some fruit. I used to put it in the Nutrition tracker every day til I realized I could SAVE SOME TIME & ENERGY by copying it a week ahead on the COPY CUSTOM FOODS above the meal listed [on the Nutrition Tracker] . That little amt. of time INVESTED has SAVED ME TIME and TIME AGAIN [pun intended!]. If I am making a big batch of food,say a SP recipe for chili, I can copy THAT CUSTOM FOOD for Dinner a week ahead ...
...or however many days!These ways of tracking food help KEEP me on the Nutrition Tracker and THAT helps keeps my goal weight maintained!
Add Flaxseed & Wheat Germ to your oatmeal, yogurt, baked goods, everyyything!! Flaxseed is a great source of essential fatty acids and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It also contains antioxidants. Wheat germ is full of folic acid and also has antioxidants. Sprinkle them on your food today!!
Make sure you store them in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness and keep flaxseed in an opaque container.
