2/7/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal- Sunday

There are some things you can add to your diet that can help if your focus is reducing calories.

Substituting mushrooms for beef can save you 350 calories and 25 grams of fat.  Because mushrooms are so hardy, you’ll feel as full as if you ate beef.  Substitute the beef in wraps, burritos, pizza toppings or mixed in with pasta dishes.

One super fruit is avocados.  I must admit, I’ve never liked them.  I gave them to my daughter when she was young because I had read that they were considered ‘brain food’.  She still loves them.  Avocados are rich in potassium (per ounce they pack in 60 % more than bananas), a mineral that also helps reduce belly fat, by flushing out excess sodium and reducing water retention.  Toss them on salads; make a side dish mixing them with fresh mango and a citrus dressing.

Keep your mind open to new possibilities and try things you thought you didn’t like before.  Great nutrition can be hidden in unusual packages.
