The easier your diet plan is the less you will think it’s hard. Plan for easy meals with simple ingredients. That way you don’t feel like dieting is a chore. I have always been one who liked variety. When Charlene was single she would make a meat loaf and it would last all week. But I have grown in my ability to eat the same thing more often. I eat a chicken sandwich for lunch a lot, and it’s enjoyable. I use one slice of 40 calorie bread, and 8 ounce piece of grill chicken and some mustard and I’m a happy camper. Today I had a turkey cutlet and it made a delicious sandwich. Along with that I have a small salad with romaine lettuce and diced fresh tomatoes with Trader Joe’s low calorie Ranch Dressing. A little lite salt and pepper and I’m good to go. It fills my need for a sandwich and still falls in the parameters of my diet. Many of the diet books I have purchased in the past have complicated recipes. The simpler the recipe the more likely we are to fix it. This is especially true when the plan calls for a minimum number of ingredients such as two veggies a cup each per meal. Simple makes for quick preparation and toss in some spices for taste. Makes a tummy happy.
