When I am just sitting and relaxing, I look up recipes and then read all the comments and add them to my planner. I have found that my husband loves the idea that I am making new dishes and had no clue that they were healthier. I never tried substituting applesauce for oil before. I tried it with pumpkin bread. WOW that was awesome. Try new things and healthier recipes. We never eat out any more because I can make most of my favorite recipe now at home and I know what is really in them

Each week I make fresh batches of healthy tuna salad and vegetable soup. I also have lots of fresh fruit, cut vegies and healthy crunchy snacks around. I'm more likely to choose healthy lunch f ood if there is a variety of prepared, easy options available for me to "grab and go." (see recipe links)

Start your day with a protein-fiber-veggie-fruit smoothie = a great start to healthy eating the rest of the day. It's quick, healthy, and you can drink on the go if you have to. Tip: pre-measure fruits-veggies ahead of time and put in baggies.
