a quickie recipe for those who need an ice-cream-ish treat...extremely healthy

take about a cup of frozen raspberries per person, add some stevia to taste, a splash of water and use a stick blender or processer to zuzz it up until very smooth...voila, raspberry sorbet...very yummy

If anyone can get their hands on a Ninja blender, I have an ice cream recipe similar to Edel's (it only works in the ninja due to the 2 blades it has) I use the food processor bowl, perfect size!

3/4 cup skim milk
2 pkts artificial sweetner if you like
18 frozen strawberries (or about the same volume other frozen fruit)-NOT thawed!
Place in blender, pulse until thick.
It has the consistency of slightly soft soft serve ice cream! Only 200 calories for about a pint!

ALSO: Since Feb. I have lost 8 pounds and completed physical therapy! I am back to running! Still slow and steady (and pokey) but I'm doin it! Woooooooo!

I was away for 2 weeks so you can just imagine what I was eating, oh boy. 6 days were camping with meals provided and the food was spectacularly wonderfully healthy, I just can't choose only one or 2 items from a buffet though so I end up eating a bit of everything and then feeling sick. Ugh.
I'm home now, as soon as I get everything unpacked and the house straightened out I'll be back on track. And I'm going to start an intense work out program (Shawn T's Insanity, wish me luck!) so at least I'll burn whatever nonsense I eat, lol.

I've had it for a year but have seen it on TV again recently so bet it's the same one. I'm intimdated but I love his energy and I need a little firming up so I'm going to do it. Anybody want to jump onboard? I could use the support (kick in the pants). Cheesy

I'm from the eastern country, where health meal is not respected Cheesy. Everybody eats heavy roasted full with cholesterol meat and very sweet sweet things. Sometimes I thing I'm a white raven, only shouting about healthy diet habits Sad

Hey everyone, how's it going with your healthy eating habits? I think I've transitioned off of the sugar bingeing thing enough by doing low carb to get back to eating more balanced. I think I'm going to do the Game On diet, which is really about creating healthy habits but it adds a fun game element to it that makes it fun if you're competitive. If anyone's interested in joining a round (lasts 4 weeks), get a copy of the book and head on over to the OT thread!

We just spent a few days camping with G-ma in her motor home so I planned the menu carefully, taking everything we'd need and not much more. It actually worked out pretty well and made me think about meal planning for real at home. I compost too much produce as I try to buy everything we might possibly need on our weekly shopping trips. I can't get to the grocery store often so I tend to over do it and then waste happens. It's not good.
I'm going to try a little menu planning and see how it goes. I'll make sure good snacks are included, that's where people tend to fall off the wagon I think. Meandering over to the corner store for a little sugary something is an easy habit to fall into.

My sister keeps a basket on her counter of 100 calories or less snacks...sweet things, salty things, crunchy things, etc.

I have a friend who does that but she also has a small shot glass with strips of paper that she writes on and throws into the basket when she takes a snack:  she puts on the date, emotion, what she was craving...at the end of the week, she reviews it and counts it...she said it really helps her with mindless snacking--which is what I tend to do!

Anything she takes out of the fridge or freezer is also written on the paper...

I think I might try that!

CLM--good to see you back!

That is such a good idea! My worst habit is that I just snack when I'm bored or doing something mindless. Having to fill out a piece of paper every time I want a snack may get me to stop! I try to keep lots of fresh, interesting fruits and veggies in the fridge. So if I do want a snack, I have some strawberries or a plum or something. I try to follow this list from Fitday. I'm just such a snacker, its so hard to stop! haha!

Here are the tips with out the explanations:
1. Dont Skip Meals
2. Dont Buy Unhealthy Foods
3. Drink Water, and Lots of it
4. Keep Busy
5. Put Down the Remote
6. Brush Your Teeth
7. Treat Yourself
