Always make sure your fridge is stocked with fresh fruits and veggies. This may mean shopping a couple times a week, but I guarantee when you open your fridge door and see all the healthy food your diet is so much easier!
I keep apples, pears, berries, bananas, avocados sweet potatoes, squash, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, swiss chard, onions and carrots on hand every week.

I've been really enjoying my all veggie soup. It's been great to have on hand for right before dinner. I find if I eat a satisfying bowl of it I don't want as many carbs for dinner. It's working out great!
Start with a great stock, add assorted frozen or fresh veggies, garlic, onions and italian herbs and some chunky tomatoes. 250
You can make creamy veggies soups that taste great and are filling!!! Just roast whatever veggies you want, then add to stock pot with some veggie or chicken stock, a little fat free half & half... and blend right in the pot with the immersion blender!!! Amazingly low calorie and low fat, but they taste like those cream filled restaurant soups!!! Plus you get your fresh veggies in!
My favorite is a Roasted Tomato and Basil soup.... so low in calories you can even have the grilled cheese with it!!
I went to the grocery store yesterday and finally stocked up on all my fresh fruits,veggies, juices and other food. I hate to be out of my fresh foods and for 3 days I couldn't put my 5 fr or ve on my nutrition page and that never happens but I was too sick to go out. I am feeling stronger each day
