I was bad today... in the sense that I woke up at 10.30 this morning, it's not 7.00 at night, and this is the first time I'm eating all day. Yea, no bueno.

However, my cute little snack tray looked so appetizing (to my half-starved, delirious brain) that I decided to take a picture of it before devouring it. So, here you go.



I've got half an apple (ate the other half yesterday. Was a little too tart to eat the whole thing all at once), a banana, a hard-boiled egg, a few strawberries, a string cheese, and the heel of some yummy french bread my grocery store makes daily. Most of my lunches look like some form of this (my mom calls it a "snack tray") now that I'm vegetarian. Most of the time, though, my bread product is a PBJ sandwich, and I sub a tangerine for the strawberries (which were a special treat from my mom yesterday, YUM).

I realized that I am more of a nibbler than a meal eater...I love seeing the tips on keeping the nibbles healthy and in proportion!

I have already been using a lot of the tips (smaller plate, eat slower, drink water, no sugary drinks, etc.)...the one thing that works for me is writing everything down--I hate it, but just knowing I have to write it down keeps me from snacking a lot!

Getting enough protein is tough for me...I keep forgetting about eggs!  I love them but just don't think of them...I need to craft a huge sign for my fridge "EGGS!"... Cheesy

I think this thread has motivated me to prepare more things in advance...this weekend I will vow to prepare more veggie nibbles!

I just read through every single page!

The tip about putting rubber bands on your wrist and removing them was genius!  But, then I thought it would be weird wearing them at work...then I remembered that someone on here made a bracelet that had beads on it that she moved from one side to the other...does anyone remember seeing that bracelet at all?  I can't find it!  I am sure it is simple enough to do something similar...eight beads, some sort of band... Cheesy

Ooh, I'm so glad I found this thread...I want to join in!  You guys are terrific!

Always, I think I know the bracelet you're talking about...the one I saw had links and beads, and a little charm (looked like a water drop, maybe?) that was on a lobster clasp, that she moved between beads for every glass of water she drank.

And to share a healthy treat!

Pumpkin muffins!  I haven't tried these, yet, in fact I just found the recipe today, but they sound delicious.

1 15oz can of pumpkin
1 box of carrot cake or spice cake mix
3/4 cup water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix the ingredients together and divide between 24 muffin cups.  Bake for 25 minutes.

87 calories per muffin

I'm going to try it this weekend, and I can't wait!

Hmm I tried that before and didn't really care for it, but I'm pretty sure the recipe I had didn't contain any water! That would make it less dense!

I think Weight Watchers might have sold a bracelet like that at some point. Crafty one would of course be a million times better!

That's really interesting, CraftyLittleMonkey!  I never use carrot cake mix, but I guess I never will, either!  Yuck.  The sugar thing...I think they're very wise to compare it to alcohol.  If people showed the same restraint with sugar that they (are encouraged to) show with alcohol, there'd probably be a lot fewer health issues.  Added sugar is one of the reasons (along with added salt) that I'm trying to do more of my own cooking from scratch with whole foods, rather than buying pre-made.

Your dinner sounds wonderful!  Have you ever tried making your own veggie burgers?  I've found a couple recipes for them, but have never really gotten into any of them.
