9/06/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

There are lots of changes that you can make with the foods in your diet that can save you lots of calories.  Simple exchanges such as:

- Non- fat milk for 2% milk.  Same rule applies to yogurt or greek yogurt.  I haven’t found any taste difference between fat-free feta and its fuller calorie counterpart.

-try veggies like pea pods, par-cooked broccoli. Or carrots with laughing cow light cheese vs. “veggie” or corn chips, which are just full of calories with minuscule nutrition.

-Try 4 oz orange roughy fish, or 4 oz scallops vs. breaded chicken tenders or 6 oz steak ( most restaurants feed an average steak between 9-12 oz..  It is important to eat red meat periodically to provide iron to your diet).

-Try 1 oz. dry roasted, no-salt roasted or flavored almonds over honey-roasted or flavored almonds or peanuts.

-Try 0% greek yogurt with seasonal berries vs. ice cream as dessert

-Try low-salt broth based soups vs. hearty man soups or cream based soups which are very heavy in salt and calories.

-Try balsamic or apple-cider vinegar with extra virgin olive oil over ranch or Caesar dressing.  You’d be shocked that some varieties of ranch and Caesar can have 130 calories or more for 2 tablespoons.

-These are easy changes that can help lower your daily calorie totals.  Doing this can help you reach your shape goals.
