When I get way too hungry, or ‘hangry’, I tend to make bad food choices.  You know what I’m talking about..the ice-cream, popcorn, sour patch kids, potato chips or french fries.  Having a few healthy snacks with me at all times helps keep me on track for my nutrition goals.  I also take a bottle of water with me wherever I go.

  1. I love these ideas!! I keep my grocery list on my refrigerator door. The original was created on my computer. I keep it in plastic sleeves and use dry erase markers to check off items needed. Every time I have to write them on the list. I go to my computer version and add it. Is organized in the same layout as the grocery store I frequent. Great timesaver !
