Yep. I put cinnamon on raw apples. By far my favorite way to eat apples -- cold, crisp, covered in cinnamon. Smiley

I don't have a specific amount of vegetables in mind yet. Right now, I just want to focus on making sure to eat them each day.

I, too, am jealous of your vitamix, CLM! Every year, I go to the fair and just stand and watch the vitamix guy go through his spiel a few times. Oh, the smoothies I could make with that thing... And soup! Man...

Okay, my first goal is to start writing down everything that goes into my mouth. (Did this before and lost weight. This time I need to get to my optimal weight) Second goal is to try to eat breakfast.
I acknowledge that my problem is not over eating but not eating properly. That has to change! So here goes! I'm so glad to be here and not doing this alone! Wonderful support group!!!

Speaking of small plates...I had a nibbles type dinner tonight and grabbed one of my nephews' divided kiddie plates. You can't see but there are adorable fish, turtle, and a seahorse under the food. Random eats--hummus, reduced fat ranch dip (ate half and had to go back for more carrots), carrots (I don't buy a lot of organic stuff because I'm poor, but these are so much better tasting than regular ones...the ones pictured were regular, my refill was organic...tasty!), pita crackers, and turkey sausage.

Ooh that looks yummy, I love a nibbly meal like that and love the idea of using a divided plate for it!  I always wanted to get a cute bento box to stuff full of nice healthy nibbles like that for work but never got round to getting one, I did still take some stuff in mini tupperware tubs for snacks but it wasn't as fun Smiley

Feel free to add me on MFP (anyone) if you like--maremare312. That's too bad you can't get egg whites in a carton easily like you can in the US! The fat is in the yolk, but also so are most of the vitamins. I've read a lot of articles lately that recommend eating one yolk a day and then additional egg whites, but it all depends on your nutrition goals Smiley (and I just read your second post about very low fat diet). I do egg white scrambles when I want to add chicken sausage and other yummy stuff that ups the calories so I get more food for my calorie count!

Just sent a friend request, and about to start my first day of my goal of recording my food, I tend to get complacent with portion sizes when I'm not recording it so it's very important for me!! 

For me personally it's more about fat and portion control, I've always had a pretty healthy diet (just too much of it!), I love fish and veg particularly so I've never had a problem with vitamins and general health, though admittedly I am a chocoholic!  I do have a med condition though which makes it very hard to lose weight, and I pretty much gain weight just by looking at food  Embarrassed .  I managed to lose 7 stone about 8 years ago, but subsequently put it back on  Undecided   I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis last year though and am on immuno-suppressants so it's very important for me to stay off the naughties and eat super healthy and low fat (since I can't exercise much anymore) and try and lose weight in 2012, hence the very the low fat diet my GP has me on, 1 stone down and counting!!  I'm a great advocate for stir fries and soup, I love my wok!! Smiley

3. Apple slicer.

Growing up, I never had an apple slicer. As stupid as it sounds, I don't like eating apples right off the core. I'm much more likely to eat (and finish) an apple if it's in slices. However, I never wanted to go to the trouble of slicing the stupid thing, so I just didn't eat them. Once I moved in with my fiance, he showed me this nifty little thing called an apple slicer. Shaped like a spoked wheel with handles, you shove the thing down, and voila! 8 perfect slices, with the core separated. Now I eat apples all the time, because it takes me 2 seconds to slice it!

Thanx elliot_anne, I just ordered an oxo goodgrips apple slicer last night thanx to you  Grin

Did you know they often sell those demo models for a very reduced price after the shows? Same warranty as new too! I bought mine refurbished from their website for about $150 off. Call them up and see if they have anything on sale!
I have an Excalibur dehydrator I bought refurbished and an air purifier, I got great deals on all of them.

Hi everyone!  I am wanting to lose about 40 lbs.  I quit smoking and became lazy oh and the beer didn't help anything and have gained 40 lbs.  BLEH!  I am trying to eat less processed foods and am trying to make better food choices in general for myself and my kids.  Oh and no more beer!  I found out that my brand of choice has 110 calories!!! I was blown away! 

I find that if I make a meal plan ahead of time then I tend to stick to it.  If there is no plan then no one can decide what to make for dinner and we end up at a drive thru or ordering pizza.  So my goal for the week is to make my lunch and cook dinner every day this week and to work out every evening.

For lunch I have a mix of lettuce, kale, and spinach with roasted chicken along with a side of fresh strawberries and blueberries.  I will eat this all week since I have enough to get me through. 

I joined My Fitness pal and will start to track what I am eating too!

Hi Lindy! I hear ya on the lazy dinners! Your lunch sounds yummy!

Did you know they often sell those demo models for a very reduced price after the shows? Same warranty as new too! I bought mine refurbished from their website for about $150 off. Call them up and see if they have anything on sale!

Ooh great tip! I'll have to check that out. My dad recently gave me a dehydrator but I haven't played with it yet.

For me personally it's more about fat and portion control, I've always had a pretty healthy diet (just too much of it!), I love fish and veg particularly so I've never had a problem with vitamins and general health, though admittedly I am a chocoholic!  I do have a med condition though which makes it very hard to lose weight, and I pretty much gain weight just by looking at food  Embarrassed .  I managed to lose 7 stone about 8 years ago, but subsequently put it back on  Undecided   I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis last year though and am on immuno-suppressants so it's very important for me to stay off the naughties and eat super healthy and low fat (since I can't exercise much anymore) and try and lose weight in 2012, hence the very the low fat diet my GP has me on, 1 stone down and counting!!  I'm a great advocate for stir fries and soup, I love my wok!!

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and really packed on the pounds when I was on steroids to control it for a couple years. Luckily I was able to find a medicine regime that didn't include those, but the pounds are still here. My joints will be so happier when I lose some weight!

I'm loving Fit Sugar Health and have added it to my Google Reader.

This article has some tips on getting extra veggies into our lunches, something most of us can probably use!

I joined myfitnesspal! Same username as here, if anyone wants to add me.

I was looking at livestrong.com's food tracker, and it's really nice - it has a bunch of categories, not just cals, carbs, fats, and proteins. It also tracked sodium intake, fiber, and cholesterol. The only problem: it wouldn't let me register!! After messing with it for about half an hour, I gave up. Then I saw a bunch of you guys are going myfitnesspal, and it essentially works the same way, so yea. Signed up!
