Snack Ideas #1

Filed under:

Last post (Quick Eating Tips #1) we advised bringing along some snacks to help control appetite and make sure you maintain good eating habits. Some of you were interested in snack ideas so we will start providing regular ideas that are fun, easy to prepare, low in calories, and good for you. 

Freeze your treat!

Frozen food makes a great snack because it stays fresh, maintains its flavour, and takes longer to eat.

Will Thanksgiving ruin your diet?

Filed under:

Lets hope not! Here are a quick few things to help you out (hopefully).

Be sure to eat a good breakfast and have some healthy snacks before you even get to Thanksgiving dinner. This will help you avoid overeating all that great food - you won't arrive famished.

Sneak in a quick workout before. This will help boost your metabolism and make you less likely to want to derail from all the hard work you're doing.

Be mindful of the guilt you'll feel after gorging! I always do:)

Other than that, have a great U.S. Thanksgiving!

Eating Quick Tip #1

Filed under:

Make yourself a snack before leaving home if you know you'll be out for more than 2-3 hours.

Why?
1) You can portion control and know you're going to eat well.
2) You'll know you have something to snack on = peace of mind ["can't wait to have my snack!"]
3) You'll save some $$$ - something we all need right now!
4) You won't be overly hungry later in the day = won't have the urge to over-eat at your next meal.
