Ditch The Diet for Healthy Habits

Eat This… Not That!

~Ditch The Diet~

Instead of starting the morning off with a bowl of your favorite granola cereal, try replacing it with a delicious bowl of oatmeal.  Not only will you cut out unnecessary sugar and fat, but you will also gain much-needed fiber.  Try adding some fresh fruit and chia seeds for added vitamins and protein.

Instead of eating pre-sweetened yogurt, try plain low-fat Greek yogurt and add in some fruit.  You will be getting less processed sugar and more natural sugar along with fiber.

Instead of cows milk, try using unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk. Not only will you save on calories and unwanted fat. I have to admit, I really enjoy cows milk so much more than I do almond milk, but when I am really trying to cut calories, this is one place that I make a sacrifice!  (It actually tastes quite good with Honey Nut Cheerios and half a cut up banana.)

Instead of drinking a glass of processed juice, try making a homemade smoothie or even just eat a piece of fresh fruit.  You’ll get less sugar and more fiber especially if you eat the fruit’s skin.

I LOVE ice cream, it is completely kryptonite to me!  Instead of full-fat ice cream, replace it with Halo Top** ice cream.  If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I am completely in love with this sweet treat!  By replacing regular ice cream with Halo Top you’ll be getting less sugar and more protein. halo top | lookingjoligood.blog

I love them all but my favorite flavors are PB Cup and Oatmeal Cookie! The PB Cup has only 320 calories in the entire pint and 6 grams of protein per serving! Eating these two together is a match made in Heaven!

**While this post is not sponsored, Halo Top did give me free ice cream for consideration.  (Who am I kidding though, I was already in a fully committed relationship with them before they even sent me the “golden tickets”)

 

moderation

 

Keep in mind everything in moderation!  Even a chocolate chip cookie is ok every once in a while.

  1. I just tried Halo Top for the first time this past week (the S’mores flavor) and it was so much better than I expected! I can’t wait to finish the pint I got so I can go to the store and try a different flavor!
