They say a picture is worth 1000 words...how true. This week one of my teams posted a FOOD PHOTO BLOG challenge. WOW!!! What an eye opener! I saw what I was eating and also what others were eating. Very inspiring. Then I got to thinking...pictures could be very useful. Here is my idea:
Photograph your meals and post them on your fridge with magnets. You can use them to meal plan for the day or week; plan for groceries needed; decide whether a new recipe was a hit or a miss; to change up items for different seasons and to add fresh items at the grocer as they become available.

I've started taking a photo of everything I eat. I review at the end of the day. If you have to have a picture of it, you might think twice before eating it! This is a great way to see what I'm actually eating over the course of a day. I can also snap a quick photo if it's something I don't have time to log. Just log it later. I'm going to do this for a week at least to see if it keeps me mindful of what and how much I'm eating and NOT overeating.
