"Lol, well you'd be really well rested if you went to bed at 6:00:) I know what you mean though, and I do feel better this morning not hoe a gut full of junk when I go to sleep. I've gotten myself in a bad habit and I need to break it. I…"

Grapefruit Breakfast in a Glass

Grapefruit Breakfast in a Glass
The last week has been an absolute blur. I left Tuesday for Denver to host the 6th annual FitBloggin‘ conference. It was a little bittersweet as I passed the torch to another organization to take over planning and logistics from now on, but I had fun seeing all my blog friends (whatever that means — they’ve been just friends for years now). Being gone for a week always reminds me how much I enjoy preparing my own meals. Going out is great! Don’t get [...]

Burger Salad With Fresh Herbs and Feta

Burger Salad with Fresh Herbs and Feta Close up
In the summer I’m a salad girl all the way. With the extra variety in fresh produce I find turning my favorite meals into salads an easy way to get more veggies in. On the flip side, cheeseburgers are HUGE in my house. I like to grill and the TEN-year-old (he just celebrated his birthday on Monday — time is FLYING)  loves them so they make a great mid-week meal option. Normally I make my Sriracha-Dressed Bacon Cheeseburger Salad on family burger [...]

Simply Grilled Green Beans

So sorry I’ve been MIA here on GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and actually snapping lots of photos but finding time to actually post is proving difficult. I’m in the home stretch of FitBloggin‘ planning and this my last year doing so. One of the reasons I’m bowing out is to focus on more on my personal blogs and projects including #wycwyc and GreenLiteBites. I miss recording videos, my cooking with kids series and remember 

Leftover Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Close up of Leftover Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Tacos
I love transforming leftovers into something completely new and tasty! This idea uses leftover cooked chicken and spaghetti squash to make some really awesome, yet super simple tacos. I’ve used spaghetti squash in a burrito before with fabulous results. It’s a great way to bulk up a meal without adding rice or traditional pasta. You get the volume with a heck of a lot fewer calories. Plus it adds an awesome touch of sweetness and crunch. It really transformed these [...]

Grilled Cheese With Avocado and Chicken

Grilled Cheese with Avocado and Chicken
This month’s official California Avocado Commission assignment was simply: A sandwich. Immediately I had an image of a grilled cheese with avocado. I mean, grilled cheeses are already yummy and indulgent, add a little avocado and it just takes it to a whole new level. I decided to turn up the yumminess even more and use bacon because… Bacon + Avocado = Awesomeness! The cool thing is you don’t need much bacon or avocado to make things awesome. Just a touch of both turns a pretty standard [...]

"Your not even hungry, go to bed!!!"

Posted by Melissa Moore-Price on July 1, 2015 at 10:53pm 3 Comments

Sometimes I can't believe how strong my desire to eat is in the evening. I've developed the bad habit of not eating at work, the evenings I work. Then I get home and scarf down everything because I'm starving! So i've made a point to eat a good meal at work and maybe leave a few points for after work, for a snack. I'm out of points, not even hungry, and all I can think about is potato chips, and cookies. So i'm calling it a night, and in the morning I will be happy I didn't cave. Hopefully I…

Early to Bed

Posted by LindaB on June 30, 2015 at 10:05pm 1 Comment

Well - I have to tell you that I'm thwarting off eating something that I do not need by going to bed early.  If I go to bed, I won't eat.

Had another great day today as I'm ticking the days away till the big one. 

Breakfast:  2 Morning Glory Muffins

Lunch:  Lettuce/Tomato Salad with Poppyseed Dressing, two slices each of Ham/Turkey and some melon.

Snack:  Some nuts (like a trail mix) and some frozen cherries.

Dinner:  Steak, sauteed' mushrooms & onions,…

WEEK 6 ON JENNY CRAIG. EATING OUT & NIGEL NO FRIENDS.

Posted by Frizz on June 30, 2015 at 6:49pm 2 Comments

Catching up to today...

What’s eating out like on Jenny Craig? Not a huge amount of fun. First there’s the fear of gaining back any weight you’ve worked so hard to lose.Then there’s the conundrum of what’s a safe item to order. You skip lunch so you’ve got a few more calories leeway. Then hangry and fearful you head out. Glass of wine as you sit down to the table? No. The consultant’s advice is to switch wine for vodka and soda to reduce the calories. The waitress gives you the once…

2 Days Down...

Posted by LindaB on June 29, 2015 at 9:56pm 2 Comments

I had a whole post typed and my browser crapped out.  So here is the short version....

Yesterday and today I really kept myself on track.  I even spent a lot of time in the kitchen doing prep for meals and ensuring that I had what I needed while at work.  Everything has been whole and clean eating.

I went on a run/walk tonight which was good.  I love when a challenge week gets easier to manage and I'm not sucking in air.  I think I'm ready to move on to week 4.  I'm looking…

Week in Review--Doin' it

Posted by Christy on June 29, 2015 at 7:51pm 2 Comments

Two weeks ago I committed to mixing things up, eating more protein, focusing on real foods and cutting out some of the treats. I didn't officially weigh in last week because I was working the meeting. I am proud to say that this week I was down 3.4 pounds (total for the past 2 weeks). I am super excited to see my losses kickstarted again and I'm anxious to see how it continues in the coming weeks. I've bounced around a lot in the weeks since my daughter was born and I am ready to see that…

WEEK 5 ON JENNY CRAIG. MAUDLIN.

Posted by Frizz on June 29, 2015 at 12:43am 1 Comment

I used to love eating. I loved the planning and research. I’m a kitchen tourist, the sort of person who sneaks into a country through the kitchen’s back door. I delve into the spices and ingredients, try and learn about the cooking techniques and the cultural history of dishes. Like a magpie I then make off with the shiniest treats from around the globe. Shrimp paste from Indonesia, fish sauce from Thailand, barberries from Iran, olive vegetable from Hong Kong, fermented tofu from…

Weekly Goals: 6/28/2015

Posted by Shannon H. on June 28, 2015 at 5:18pm 1 Comment

Hi All,

Here's my weekly goals as prescribed by my holistic health coach--

  • Use my planner. This is where I plan my week including things that I'll do for my "primary" food groups (spirituality, creativity, etc.)
  • Give myself unconditional permission to eat. Get rid of the idea that certain foods are bad. When you get rid of the idea that certain foods are “bad,” then…
