These freebies include:
Celery, mushrooms, salsa (1/4 cup), bell peppers, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, snow peas, zucchini, and alfalfa sprouts. Put these all together and you would have yourself a tasty but low calorie salad.
Other options for when the snack attack occurs is to have a quick protein snack like; celery with peanut butter or almond butter, a small handful of almonds (remember to watch your portion sizes!), cottage cheese, or a hard-boiled egg.
One tip that has been VERY HELPFUL for me and my family to help me stick with my goal was to write out our meals for the week. I have a wonderful menu planner that includes a grocery list to the side so I can write down what items are missing from our pantry. This sure helps make shopping faster and cheaper. I also find I am not choosing so many non-healthy options (like ice cream...if its in the house I WILL eat it!). I can go in and get what is on the list and leave. You can find the menu planner I use on www.thesistercafe.com
Well here’s to another successful week for everyone. Check out my latest picture taken just the other day :)
