I installed a calorie app on my phone. This has resulted in a lot of changes. A lot of negotiating. After a particularly bad day, I don’t do stressful eating anymore, I hoard and save up my calories so that in the evening I have 160 of them left. That’s for my gin and tonic. A necessity.
The other thing I’ve learned. You can eat lots of fruit and vegetables. Lots.
Instead of dessert, I’ve been making fruit salads. It’s fun. And colorful. And it doesn’t take many calories. I need to save them, you know.
The key to the fruit salads (well besides the fruit) is this fabulous dressing. I make a jar of it at the beginning of the week and just drizzle a little on the fruit.
Fruit Salad Dressing
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- Juice of one lime
Mix in a jar. Drizzle a spoonful over your fruit salad. Enjoy.
