Wellness Wednesday! Make Room for your Cravings.

I found this article in the June 2010 issue of Woman's Day magazine. The whole article will take a bit of typing so I am just going to include breakfast in this one and will post more of the meals later.

Make room for your cravings.

Each of these sample meals adds up to 500 calories for a total of about 1,500 calories a day (which should enable you to lose about 1 to 2 lb a week)


What you're craving-Bacon

What you'd normally have: 2 scrambled eggs cooked in 1 tsp butter with 1 slice Cheddar on a whole-wheat English muffin with a 12 oz latte made with skim milk.

Eat what you want: Skit the cheddar and add 2 slices of bacon.

What you're craving: Chocolate-Chip Pancakes

What you'd normally have: 3 medium (4") buttermilk pancakes with 3 Tbsp maple syrup and 1 cup fruit salad.

Eat what you want: Skip the maple syrup and add 2 Tbsp chocolate chips.

What you're craving: A sweet and gooey cinnamon roll

What you'd normally have: 1 medium (4 1/2") cinnamon-raisin bagel with 2 Tbsp cream cheese and an 8 oz low fat cappuccino.

Eat what you want: Swap the bagel and cream cheese for a medium (5 oz) cinnamon roll; swap the cappuccino for an 8 oz regular coffee with a splash of 1% milk.
