  • buy a bag of dry lentils soak overnight
    add a can of tomatoe sauce water and a broth cube and heat up on the stove

  • I would check out HungryGirl.com: They have TONS of healthy (lo-cal) recipes & swap-outs. They also tell you about tons of products you might not know about (like Tofu Shirataki noodles, which is a WAY lo-cal pasta substitute) & they best way to prepare such foods. They recommend great fastfood & dinning out alternatives. They came out with a cook book, but there is already SO MUCh on thier site, I'd check that out. GL!

  • When you go on a diet, or use a diet aid, you are just putting yourself on the gain/loss rollercoaster; frustrating for you, and really hard on your body. In order to maintain a healthy weight, you need to have a healthy lifestyle; this has the added bonus of setting a great example for your kids.
    First, drink your water! at least 8 8oz glasses a day. Next, eat your fruits and veggies! 7-8 servings a day, in at least three different colors. Now, eat your whole grains (loaded with fiber, protein, and lots of energy-giving nutrients), 7 servings a day. Cut way back on (or eliminate) meat and dairy. Add beans, lentils, and tofu to your diet. Feel free to ask me any questions. You can also go to your local library and take out any book by Dr. McDougall; there is also a free meal plan with recipes on his website: http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html
