One of the things that I hope to accomplish with the band is being able to eat NORMAL foods, just less of them. The keys being small portions/moderation. For supper I am trying to make my meals healthier not only for myself but the entire family. With occasional foods like pizza/ice cream that I know they crave.
Kids are like sponges, they mimic what we eat as long as I don't push it on them. The other day we picked up a rotisserie chicken from the Market and when I took my piece I started taking off the skin immediately. Brooke (10) loves to eat that stuff, Yuck. Anyway, I was explaining to Brooke (10) about how the fat that comes long with the skin and how it clogs up your heart..yada, yada, yada. Of course she just dismissed me. Paige (5) on the other hand, will not eat skin anymore! Apparently she soaked in my skin/fat/clogging up the heart story. I wasn't even aware that she was listening. LOL
After our supper, I pack leftovers in 1/2 cup plastic containers and put them away. Sometimes I put them in the fridge for lunch the next day or freeze them for lunch later on. It works out perfectly for me since I know exactly how much I am eating. In the morning I throw 2 of those little 1/2 containers in my lunch kit. I try to make it through the day with eating just one, if I find myself still hungry I will eat the other. When I can eat both containers (1 cup) of food for lunch and find myself still hungry, I know it's time to start thinking of a fill appt.
What is in your typical lunch?
