With salads, there are so many different kinds you can always change it up :) You can use romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens, baby spinach, baby romaine, Italian salad mix, etc. Try different dressings like olive oil & balsamic vinegar, balsamic vinaigrette, low-fat zesty Italian, etc. Add things like cherry tomatoes, cucumber, dried cranberries, goat cheese or any cheese, almond slithers, walnut crumbles, grated carrot, roasted beets, etc. For protein things like: tuna or salmon, chickpeas or any beans, tofu cubes, tempeh, etc. Healthy food ideas :) * Go for natural, ideally organic foods ~ Greek yogurt or yogurt (nonfat) - Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt ~ Eggs, cheese, cottage cheese (2% is fine), goat cheese, skim milk or goat milk, etc. ~ Vegetables ~ Fruit & Berries ~ Beans (chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, mixed beans, etc.) - full of fiber and protein :) ~ Veggie burgers (Amy's makes great veggie burgers) ~ Whole grain breads: multigrain bread, ezekiel bread, rye bread, whole wheat pitas, whole grain tortillas or bagels, etc. ~ Whole grain pasta or brown rice pasta, brown/wild rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc. ~ Sweet potatoes or potatoes ~ Hummus ~ Oatmeal - great source of fiber, you can add toppings like: almond butter or peanut butter, nuts, fresh berries/fruit, raisins, dried fruit like cherries/cranberries/blueberries, cinnamon, skim milk or non-dairy milk, nonfat greek yogurt, jam, honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, etc. ~ Healthy cereals (Kashi, Nature's Path Organic, etc..high in fiber like raisin bran) ~ Nuts, seeds, almond butter, peanut butter ~ Non-dairy milks like soy, almond or rice milk ~ Ground flax seed to add into a smoothie, top yogurt, etc. ~ Olive oil, good healthy fat, great for stir frys with lots of veggies. ~ Salmon & Tuna ~ Tofu & Tempeh - are great in sandwiches, wraps, on salads, etc. ~ Whole grain crackers ~ Whole grain waffles or pancakes ~ Dark chocolate - in small amounts :) Here is a website with great nutrition information, recipes, meal & snack ideas: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/values/building-blocks.php I hope this helps :) ♥

Don't eliminate all the junk food overnight. That is what damages most healthy eating. Instead, look at what you eat and when. Replace say your afternoon snack. Instead of a bag of chips, have an apple or orange. I know, it's tough to start with, but you get used to that over time. Reduce aftermeal desserts to only twice a week. You can still have an evening snack, but make it a fruit or a vegetable or a cup of yogurt. My problem isn't junk food. It's potatoes, rice and bread. Measure out ONE SERVING. Eating only one serving is a lot harder to get used to than ending the junk food habit IMHO. We've been supersized so longer, we no longer know what one serving is.

Calorie control snacks like oatmeal cookies and calorie free cupcakes. Eat more fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables, exercise daily and drink lots of water. Milk, yogurt, cheese, sour cream, and cream cheese with lower fat varieties are healthy and tasty.

Listen its not about what you eat its how much you eat that is what people don't understand. They hear the word diet and they think that they can only eat salads. The only thing that matters at the end of the day is the total amount of calories not the number of meals. If you are negative calories you will lose weight it is that simple like a math equation. So I say this eat less of the foods you like and get activity going like walking 3-4 times a week.

Oatmeal, egg whites, wheat toast, and fruit. Best things you can jumpstart your morning with. Nice and clean eating, with perfect balance of carbs and proteins. My personal breakfast is a bowl of Quaker Steel Cut Oats, with 1 whole egg, 5 egg whites, and an apple. I sometimes cook the egg in olive oil for some added mono and polyunsaturated fats, especially if I am going to work out hard later. Been eating same thing for a year now, and I have no problems with weight management. Good luck.

Shimhi Originally Answered: What are good foods to eat, and foods to stay away from with acne prone skin?
Hey Love, (super cute name btw) You would think off hand that you should eat all healthy foods like fruits and veggies to cure acne, and stay away from all unhealthy foods like chocolate and oils. Believe it or not, that's not always the case. In some instances, bananas and tomatoes can aggravate acne a lot! There are also foods that can clear up your acne in as little as three days if incorporated in the right three day diet. I'll link you a home remedy. Try it out and see if it works for you. Good luck :o)
