Good Snacks

Monday, November 03, 2003
I have been relatively good on the weekends. I mean, I don't track my points, but I try to eat pretty healthy - I don't eat as much quantity-wise on the weekend for some reason. My hardest time has been in the evenings when I get home from work. I'll cook a good dinner, but then I'll want to snack in front of the TV or something. I need to stock my fridge w/ some healthier snacks is what I really need to do. I haven't gone grocery shopping for this week yet, so when I do go I'll be sure and get some cook snacking foods.

Some really great things to keep are cut veggies that you can eat raw. I love raw cauliflower, brocoli, carrots, celery - but so often it's easy to grab a dip to go w/ them, too - and to be honest, I don't like the low cal Ranch that I have tried in the past! The powdered one isn't bad and you can use fat free sour cream w/ it. Tuna fish salad is a good dip to use for celery, too.

Another thing I used do is mark everything as soon as I take it out of the grocery bag. If it's in a box or a bag I figure the points per serving and write it w/ a sharpie so that laziness won't keep me from tracking points!!! I haven't marked my groceries lately and that leads to going over points pretty easily! So that's something else I have to do when I go grocery shopping this time - figure the points and mark everything!!!

So far today I have had 12 points. 2 for breakfast and ten at lunch.
