Here’s a common scenario around the holiday’s. You are at West Edmonton Mall performing an all day marathon of shopping. It’s around 5 pm and your stomach starts growling. You start heading to the food court and examine the dinner choices around you, KFC, McDonald’s, Subway, Asian or Indian food. All high in fat, sodium and TONS of Calories. When I am at West Edmonton Mall and the hunger bug hits me, I head to the food court by the mini golf. There’s a great healthy fast food place here called FRESHII. It has a great selection of healthy food and the best part is you can select what goes into your food. For simplicity sake I always order the Protein Salad (it’s my favourite). It contains almonds, tuna, spinach, tomatoes, and other goodies. Also, make sure you order your dressing on the side. This way you can control the amount of added calories from your dressing.
Tis the season for Christmas parties and over eating. The day after one of these shin digs usually leaves me feeling sluggish and completely unhealthy. So for supper on the following day I like to keep it simple and light. Here’s a super quick and fast dinner meal that will leave you feeling satisfied and help you get back on track to a healthier you. Here I have a 3.5 ounce snapper fillet lightly seasoned from save on foods. It’s resting against a half a cup of couscous (5 mins to make) and a nice salad to fill in the rest of the plate. Here I tossed in some celery and a few dried cranberries. The total points for this cleansing dinner is 5 WW points. Pair that with about 3 ounces of your favourite white wine and enjoy (wine not included in the points above). The total meal takes less than 30 mins to prepare.
