Out of Sight, Out of Mind!

Want to know the best way to avoid eating junk food and high calorie snacks late at night? Don't buy them! Unless you have super self control sometimes it's easier to just leave the junk at the store. You will be less tempted if it's not starring you in the face saying "eat me". Instead, have more nutritious snacks around the house...believe me if you are really hungry you will eat the healthy stuff!

Here's a few healthy snack ideas to replace the junk or to avoid eating more than you need:
1 small Apple with 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
Sip on some hot tea
10 Whole wheat crackers with 1 wedge of low fat laughing cow cheese
Orange segments dipped in 4 ounces of low fat vanilla yogurt or soy yogurt
6 ounces low fat yogurt with 1/4 cup granola
3/4 cup of whole grain cereal with skim milk or soy milk

Those are just a few off the top of my head. The best advice would be to avoid prepackaged foods as much as possible and stick with a more natural choice!

Now, I know those sales are tempting especially when doritos and oreos are "buy one get one free." Just remember: they will cost you a lot more in the long run!

TGIF! Make this a healthy weekend!
