Great post from kissmekate's blog on how she eats

What do I eat?

One of my friends asked me this today to get meal ideas. This is what I responded:

OK, this is actually easy for me because my diet hardly ever changes. I am one of those people who has my favorites and eats them almost every day with few variations.

Breakfast is always one of two things. During the week I have a big bowl of cereal (and I mean BIG) for breakfast. Because I eat a lot of it, I stick with the lowest fat/calorie choices that I can. My hands-down favorite is Kelloggs Tiger Power, followed by Honey Nut Cheerios. And I use skim milk. On the weekends, we go to a bagel place and I get a whole wheat bagel with veggie cream cheese but I ask them to go easy on the cream cheese.

Mid-morning we have a short break, just enough for me to have a quick snack, and I usually have a box of raisins. I don't eat enough fruit and I read that in a parenting magazine as a trick to get your kids to eat more fruit. I like raisins, so it works out fine. I also drink water through the morning.

For lunch, I either have a sandwich, a Lean Cuisine (my favorite is sesame chicken), or a salad from the school cafeteria. They have a good Chinese chicken salad but I only use about 1/2 of the dressing packet because if I used the whole thing it would be 16 grams of fat. If I have a sandwich, I get turkey on whole wheat with lettuce, tomato and mustard. I'll also have a snack bag of Baked Lay's or a few pretzels or low fat Wheat Thins, and then a Slim Fast snack bar (peanut butter crunch bar tastes just like Butterfinger) or a WW one-point chocolate cake snack. And I try to only drink water at lunch but once in a while I'll have a Diet Coke.

When we eat dinner at home my husband usually grills chicken and we have that with salad and some steamed veggies. On my salad I use a low-fat dressing and I don't put butter on my veggies, instead I use lemon or a little teriyaki sauce. Sometimes we'll make spaghetti with whole wheat pasta. If we eat out I almost always get a Chinese chicken salad wherever we go - it's my hands down favorite. If I had one for lunch and we go out for dinner, I'll get chicken or shrimp with vegetables and salad (you can get that pretty much anyplace) or sometimes I'll get a turkey burger, no cheese, with salad instead of fries. Again I try to drink water most of the time but now and then I'll get a Diet Coke.

I love dessert and don't feel complete after dinner unless I have something sweet. If we're at home, I keep a variety of desserts in the freezer, like WW Smart Ones double chocolate fudge cake or Mississippi mud pie, or Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. If I'm out, I go to a local yogurt place for a non-fat frozen yogurt, or to Baskin Robbins for one of their low fat ice creams. They have a good one called Espresso 'n' Cream and also a no-sugar-added chocolate chocolate chip. Always get the "child" size in a cup, not a cone.

Daily Running Can Help you live longer

Those who took on more intense exercise -- the equivalent of running half an hour a day five days every week -- extended their lives by about 3.5 to 3.7 years.

Launched the new round of the spotlight!

The first participants were extraordinary. If you didn't get a chance to see them, visit the spotlight in the LOUNGE, post a comment, give them the extra peer pressure they need. They have a lot of courage and a great energy and I am excited for round 2! (that and it's 1am and since it's launched I can go to sleep)
