Tips

All right...here are a few tips for those of you who are wanting to eat healthier.
  • Rotisserie chicken is a fantastic and easy meal option. You can eat it as is, or you can pull all the chicken off and use it in a number of different recipes. This week I will be making green curry chicken, a chicken salad, and chicken soft tacos. Cheap meal too...you can get rotisserie chicken around here at Walmart or Giant Eagle, and it is under $5.
  • Buy the good-for-you-stuff and have it in the front of your fridge, cupboards, and out on the counter. You are more likely to grab it for a quick snack if it is staring you in the face.
  • It might cost more, but it is saving your life. I just spent $10 on grapes last night. Ten whole dollars! But I realize that it is a better choice for myself and my children than the $1.50 bag of chips.
  • Be prepared. Cut up the veggies right away. Cook ahead of time. Plan out your meals for the week. Don't be caught hungry without a plan.
  • Don't refuse the bag at Subway. You will drop your sub in your driveway, and you will try to catch it, and you will grab the outer edge of the paper and watch it unroll as it heads for the ground, leaving your sandwich gutted on the gravel. Trust me on this one.
  • Thomas not only has the bagel thins, it also has 100 calorie english muffins. Try it with Smuckers simply fruit spreads, or top with turkey bacon.
  • Frozen waffles can be delish when topped with sliced strawberries and a dab of whipped topping. I've tried the lighter whipped topping versions, and find that it is worth the extra calories to have the real kind
  • more to come....
