Some foods are too delicious to completely let go of when you’re trying to reduce your calorie intake. For me, those things are a topping or dip of some kind that usually require an additional calorie-heavy food to deliver the tasty goodness to my mouth. If you’re dieting, it’s smart to replace the delivery method with something healthier—or just do what I do and forego it entirely.
January i the month for getting your house in order, and no aspect of one’s life gets quite so…
These delivery methods, or “vehicles” as I call them, are usually a chip, cracker, bread, or some other item that exists for the sole purpose of bringing tasty flavors from a bowl or jar to my eager tastebuds. For me, these items usually include tortilla chips for guacamole, pita chips for hummus, and pieces of toast for peanut butter, avocado, or sardines. Now, I know that each of those vehicles can add their own flavors and a satisfying mouthfeel to every bite, but they don’t help me shed my holiday weight.
I realized that I eat most of these things as a snack—simply for the joy of eating them, not because I’m hungry. And when I start, I don’t stop. That’s a problem because it leads to me taking in a lot more calories than I need each day. So, I thought it best to ween myself off of my snacking by changing my approach. If I wanted hummus, I might dig in with some carrot slices; if I wanted peanut butter, maybe I’d use some celery; and so on.
