I want you to know that I struggle too. I have reached some of my health goals but I have to continue to take these little steps to health.
Writing this blog helps me stay accountable. I find the summer especially hard because there is less routine and summer equals fun food!
Here’s how I stay on track and some strategies that work for me.
Veggies and hummus are a part of most of my lunches. I fill half my plate with the veggies first.
Then my plate looks really full when I add anything else.
Here’s a picture of what I might have for lunch. I would add some crackers and cheese.
When we have hamburgers I don’t have a bun. The meat tastes great all by itself.
I spread salad dressing on the wrap before I assemble it so there is taste in each bite and I use much less. I fill my wrap with mostly vegetables and added white chicken meat.
If we have potato chips I include them as part of my lunch . I don’t buy salt and vinegar ones, as those are my favorite and too hard to resist. A small portion of potato chips, a nice sandwich and fresh raw veggies is a fun supper on a super hot day.
We have cubed watermelon available or popsicles for dessert.
A small hand dipped ice cream cone is a treat we enjoy, just not every day. When we have them at home I can control the portion. Licking an ice cream cone slows down the eating process and every lick tastes so good!
