Is weight standing between you and the relationship of your dreams? Reaching a healthy weight is part of loving yourself well.
TIP TWO: Save some of your calories for dessert or a snack by foregoing the starch (potato, rice, pasta, or bread) with your meal.
Salad for dinner is a delicious alternative, especially during warm weather. And dressing doesn’t have to have more calories than the salad! A tasty vinegar with salt and pepper can be yummy–try aged balsamic, rice, or sweet mango–and if you want more substance, just substitute yogurt for mayo or oil. Cheese and nuts may be enough protein; but if you want more, top with blackened fish, ham, crab, or chicken. We have a few go-to favorites; but you never have to eat the same salad twice.
PRACTICE: Skip the starch, use nutritious greens for bulk, and add taste treats, like sun-dried tomatoes, roasted beets, peppadews, cheese (a little goes a long way), nuts, fresh fruit, crispy onions, and jalapeño jelly.
