Custom cupcakes are so fun! Here are some pictures to inspire!

Eating out 101

Inspired by a loved one! I was out to dinner with some very important people in my life and I was taken back by the way one of them ordered, “ I will take the shrimp appetizer, then for dinner I would like a side salad, dressing on the side, and your steamed vegetables” then when dinner was over “ I will take the cheese cake!” As the rest of us lay there moaning because we ate to much of a regular dinner and can’t possible order what we really like because we ate what the menu said to. Yet the thinnest one at the table is the only one having dessert! She had a well balanced dinner and felt great! So the lesson is…. #1 Every time you put something in your mouth ask yourself …. Do I really want it and do I need it? #2 order like the thinnest person at the table! Like Meg Ryan in When Harry met Sally. These are tips I can use for the rest of my life and not feel deprived. It’s all about creating good habits for healthy eating. Watch this link.

Breakfast Idea #1

Bread! Bread matters! Pick great tasting bread. It should be about quality because it can’t be about quantity. Bread is not bad. Like everything else it is moderation. Limit your bread intake and make it the first half of the these are easy baby steps to eating healthy. Open faced sandwiches are an awesome way to do that.

Miltons Multi-Grain Plus Bread. (Costco is the least expensive)
Yes it does have 120 calories a slice. But it has 4g fiber and 5g protein and remember 1 slice.

Breakfast idea

1 Slice Miltons Multi-Grain Plus Bread 120 cal

1 teaspoon Mayo 33 cal

2 oz Sliced Turkey 65 cal

2 oz Raw Tomato slices 12 cal

1 8 oz Cup of Coffee 6 cal.
= 236 calories for breakfast.

Add a piece of fruit for balance. Remember your first meal should be your biggest! That’s a great meal!

Also use your favorite dishes or eat in your favorite spot so it seems like a treat, not like your missing something!

If you’re watching your calories, diet bread can be down to 40 calories, making your breakfast 156 calories. I think the nutritional benefits are off. You seem to need the fiber and proteins to get the metabolism going in the morning. I say save the tasteless diet bread for your afternoons! This is a choice to make based on a quality life style change.

Jicama pronounced /ˈhɪkəmə/ also Mexican Turnip. indigenous within the Americas.

It is the texture of a less dens potato.

Jícama is high in carbohydrates in the form of dietary fiber. It is composed of 86-90% water; it contains only trace amounts of protein and lipids. Its sweet flavor comes from the oligofructose inulin (also called fructo-oligosaccharide) which is a prebiotic.

Jicama is loaded with different vitamins and minerals. In fact, it is an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, iron, calcium and is also low in sodium. Moreover, it has no calories or fat, and so serves as an essential ingredient in many health food recipes. On an average, one cup of raw sliced jicama contains:

• Calories: 46

• Protein: 0.86 grams

• Carbohydrate: 10.6 grams

• Total Fat: 0.11 grams

• Fiber: 5.8 grams

Here’s a link on how to cook with Jicama……
I love it raw in salads or veggies and dip. It is sweet and juicy!

Grilled Pork Loin

1 Pork loin you choose the size

Approx. 3 eaters per pound. 2 if the eaters are big eaters like my eaters!

1 gas grill

1 meat thermometer

You can go out and buy all kinds of marinades or purchase the loin already marinated.

Key lime marinade is one of my favorites. Costco has the best price on lemon garlic loins and they are large and feed a lot!

But Cash and Carry has small loins at the best price ever! I have done several weddings with the small loins and no marinades. I have always gotten raves reviews from it!

I pull the Pork Loin directly out of the package with tongs not a fork! Place it on a hot grill. The meat has a seal from setting and we want to keep the juice and flavor in! As soon as it has color, on the grill side, turn it slightly using tongs. The key is do not push on it or puncture it. Grillers tend to sit and poke or push on their meat while waiting for it. This will drive juices the wrong way and dry it out. Keep it rotating till it has a nice crust on the out side. Check it with the meat thermometer once it has rotated all the way around. You want it at about 140. You are going to remove it from the grill and let it rest for about 6 to 10 minutes covered with foil. There is what is called carry over cooking which will raise the temp above 140 while resting. Most people are afraid of pork and want to over cook it. 140 is all it needs to not make you sick. Overcooked is dry. After resting slice it and watch the clear juices flow!

Pork loin facts- 4 oz portion is 154 calories. 6.13 grams of fat. 23.29 grams of protein.

Minerals - In one serving there are 1.42 mg of Calcium and 0.35 mg of Iron. In addition, this food has 103.76 mg of Potassium and 14.18 mg of Sodium in each serving.

Vitamins - This food has both Vitamin A and Vitamin C. One serving contains 1.7 International Units of Vitamin A and 0.26 mg of Vitamin C.
You just don’t get that from any other red meat!

Sides for Pork Loin
German way! Red sauerkraut and boiled potatoes

Brady way! Apple sauce

Anne’s quick way! Stove Top and a can of green beans or picked beets

The boy’s preference! Au gratin potatoes and corn

Garlic Mashed Potatoes tonight?

Snacks Day one!

Snacking Basics

        According to recent research, 93% of Americans snack, with 50% of them feeling the need to munch up to 2-3 times a day. While snacking in itself isn’t bad for you, and can in fact be quite good, the challenge is to snack wisely. However, most Americans are confused about which snacks fit into a sensible diet. Conflicting headlines and dueling studies cause a great deal of confusion, and lead many people to give up on trying to make educated choices.

        However, there is some good news. Healthy snacking can benefit any balanced meal plan. You can maximize your health and nutrition, as well as keep your metabolism humming, when you select snacks that are low in fat and calories and high in fiber. For optimal nutrition, aim for 4-6 total small meals and snacks in a day. To stay within your calorie budget, cut calories from your full meals to make room for the snacks you want.

Back to basics!

Think back! What did your mom give you as a kid?

My favorite was rice cakes, cream cheese and fresh blueberries. It tastes good and has protien, antioxidants and brain food with a crunch.

How about a banana covered in peanut butter then rolled in chopped pecans?

Bag up the vegetables in sandwich baggies so you can grab and go!

Granola (cereal )and yogurt….

Small pretzel sticks with just the ends dipped I melted chocolate chips.
15 match stick pretzels and 2teaspoons of chocolate chips is only 100 Calories!

Blueberries and grapes portioned in the freeze for a quick cool snack!

Missing potato chips and that lovely pop in your moth crunch?

Try this...
Mix in a large bowl

2 Tablespoons of sugar

1 Tablespoon of cinnamon

Then toss in..

4 Granny Smith apples sliced as thin as you can get them

Coat the apples but don’t worry if you miss spots!

Lay out on two parchment papered cookie sheets and bake in a 250 degree oven till just crisp. About two hours.

This makes 4 servings @ 100 calories each

Just remember it’s not always snack it’s the amount and how often.

The beginning of the journey!

Cold truths…..Diets works, it’s the people that do them that don’t! If you diet like crazy and loose 10, 20, 50 pounds, when you stop you gain over time 15, 25, 60 pounds. That is what doesn’t work for me! So what ever you do it better be something you can do the rest of your life! Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Systems, what ever the bottom line is… 1. Eat less 2. Exercise 3. Change what you are doing! In the coming weeks I will be posting recipes, food ideas, money savings tips and much more. I am also working on food issues. Why do we eat and where? What makes us do it! Yes because we like it. But if we figure out certain things that trigger our eating it might ease the battle.

1. I found that I eat in my car a lot.

2. I eat junk because it’s easier.

3. I eat when I am thirsty.

4. I also find myself dying to eat when I am tired. It’s a way to comfort myself.

So for the next 6 weeks…

1. I am not going to eat in my car. I am even going to clean it out. No crumbs!

2. I am going to pre-make snacks in small baggies, make meals and soups I can warm quickly and share them on this blog.

3. I will drink some water before I eat.

4. I will stop and think about why I want to eat. If I am tired I will take a nap or drink coffee if I am on the run.

It is a fact that it takes 6 weeks to see any real results for anything. I also think it’s doable to do something for just 6 weeks. The beauty of this plan is I can still eat what I want. I can still live my life. It’s not costing me money. I don’t feel like I am missing anything! I only have to change four things and I can do this the rest of my life! In six weeks I will let you know how it went!

While eating healthy fruit is our friend!

Fruit helps us stay on track with both our minds and body’s.
Starting the day with fruit helps hydrates you for the day.
6 servings of fruit a day helps your sugar levels (sweet tooth) and gives you reasonable calorie counts.

Get your melon ballers out!

Cantaloupes are only 29 calories for a ½ cup.

They are also referred to Muskmelons if you see that in a recipe. My grandmother use to sprinkle just a tiny bit of salt on her cantaloupe. It makes it riper tasting.

Watermelons are 25 calories for a ½ of cup.

One of my favorite snacks is watermelon and whipped cream. It is so refreshing. Just a Tablespoon of whipped cream to ½ cup watermelon is almost better than ice cream with your late night TV show or to cool you on a hot day.

And it would only be 35 calories depending on the whipped cream you use!

* Please remember most things are not bad if you have balance. SMALL amounts of salt or cream is OK!

FredMeyer has personal Watermelons and Tuscan Cantaloupe on sale this week for $2.00 a piece. That breaks down to about $1 a filling, hydrating, sweet snack.

Introduction to healthy eating!

I have been asked by friends and past clients to create a health eating blog. I have had requests for healthy or diet menus for my food delivery service. I have had several people want to sign up for my in home healthy cooking classes. And now, last but not least my pants have required me to submerge myself in health eating habits!
So here we go!
I have set up my blog with a health eating page (to your right on my home page) for recipes, snack and meal ideas, shopping tips and a small amount of education on foods. I have a facebook page linked for discussions and ideas. I have developed a healthy eating cooking class for all skill levels. I hope you follow and partake in any or all of these tools that help you with your journey for balance, health eating and a better life.
 Thanks for the help, on my journey, in advance, Anne Marie
