Rachel’s Tip of the Day

18 Jun

When you’re at a buffet like Whole Foods or a salad bar at a restaurant, fill your plate with 75% green, leafy vegetables. Then top the rest with a lean protein like tofu, lean grilled chicken breast or nuts and seeds. This will keep you full longest and help you from piling your plate with fatty comfort foods like mashed potatoes and french fries. But if you want a bite or two of something indulgent: go for it; just take a scoop. 


Hint: Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a squirt of lemon for dressing. It’ll save you tons of calories and fat, plus you’ll get an extra healthy bonus.
