    Default Day one- It starts with changing the little things...

    Hi! Hope it's ok to join as in trying to drop a few and be healthier when ttc! Your changes sound great- I like wholemeal pasta and love brown rice but find DH very hard to convince...plus he adds at least half a garlic bread stick to these meals (yup I have considered making my own wholemeal bread roll ones but the no name garlic bread is so cheap n fills his belly easily!)

    Another thing that has worked well for me is if we have pasta for tea (not too often- carbs at night still give my night terrors!) I make sure there is a huge salad, served up first on each plate. Cuts down on meal size and I fund if your salad is heavy on capsicum, tomato, cucumber and carrot it really fills ur belly!

    Easy sweet treat idea for dessert is berries n yoghurt or in winter I love warmed banana and with maple syrup or custard- not too bad for u at all

    Now if anyone can suggest a healthier a chip alternative (not so much potato chips just saltiness n twisties etc!) I'd be eating near on perfectly!!!!

    I'd return them buy something savoury you enjoy to snack on instead, or some yummy seasonal fruit

    Woollies Macro brand in the health section does corn chips cooked in high oleic sunflower oil... This oil is healthier than vegetable/seed oils and you could always sprinkle a little extra salt on if they are too bland for your tastes

    Good idea. I thought the UP n GO's would make a great filler for times when I'm on the run and a healthy-ish alternative to sweets.
