    Some good tips here. A few that i’ve done for years is, pop my own popcorn, learn to love produce that’s in season and baking my own quick breads.

    Many of these tips can be summed up as: eat mindfully. Good advice for both your health and your wallet.

    I eat the fruit after dinner, or as a snack. I don’t drink many of my calories, and if I’m feeling a bit empty after dinner even with the fruit, its water.

    Also learn to love ethnic produce esp when bought at an ethnic grocery.

    I have to say it… quit buying coffee out. One person who drinks 1 latte per day would save over $1000 per year just drinking coffee at home. And you don’t have to scrimp! Buy really nice fresh coffee, get yourself a killer espresso machine with the money you saved this year, and every year from here on out is gravy!

    We stopped buying many kids snacks also. Many are just full of sugar and not cost efficient. We buy a large package of raisins or trailmix. Smaller pre-packaged items are easier to throw in a lunch box but you can make 5 baggies on Sunday evening for the rest of the week.

    Very good list of ideas. When I started having chronic health problems I had to force myself to start buying some items that were more processed than before, such as grated cheese, and salad mixes as I rarely feel well enough to do all the prep work and still cook the meal. I cooked from scratch all my life. Very hard to change gears. Due to having a well and the health problems, I also had to start using bottled water (and feel so much better). I guess what I’m saying is these ideas are great, but if due to health or time constraints you can’t follow up on all of them don’t beat yourself up about it.

    I recently started on a serious diet… it was long overdue!

    One of my worst poroblems was snacking at night, but I discovered a “cure”. I keep a pomegranate in the frig and dig it out when the urge to “graze” is overwhelming. If you peel it by hand and are intent on not damaging any of the seeds, it takes one to one and a half hours to eat the thing! By the time I’m through, all thoughts of other food are gone.

    I liked your ideas. I am 89
    years old so I have seen and
    used most of them in my life.
    It never hurts to be reminded.
