Yesterday, Dinah Soar wrote about Laughing Cow Cheese. I have to admit, I will not be trying low-fat cheese as I like the real stuff after growing up in the dairy state. I have tried a cheese sauce that I will continue using, Taco Bell Mild Salsa con Queso is a great substitute for cheese for me. I use it when eating taco salads, on my eggs, and I have tried it on my Boca Burgers, but I have found that I like them just so I can eat ketchup.
I have found that making small changes, adds up as time goes by. I started drinking coffee with lots of cream and sugar and have gradually gotten to the point where I am starting to prefer it black. I was eating my grapefruit with sugar, then switched to using Splenda, but have now gotten to the point where I eat it plain. While I was eating lunch at work today, one of my colleagues was drinking sweetened Green Tea. A few others were teasing her, but I complimented her stating that it's the small changes that start adding up and make a HUGE difference in the long run. She had been drinking at least 3 sodas a day. Regular sodas! That's a lot of empty calories. Now, she's drinking a few glasses of the sweetened tea. The tea only has 70 calories versus over 250 for the soda. Eventually, she'll switch to the unsweetened stuff I'm sure.
Small steps add up!
