Are you going to be in Austin, TX this fall? Want to run/mud crawl/obstacle climb a 5K? Leave a comment or e-mail me (email@example.com) and I’ll send you the dirty deets on how to be part of The Slender Student team! The largest team wins cases (yes, plural) of wine. I don’t think there’s much else I have to say.
Here’s another set of Slender Sweet Nothings that will promote your journey to slenderhood without much effort!
1. I already spoke of all the wonders of green tea in the last Slender Sweet Nothings, so hopefully you’ve since started drinking it. Lately, though, instead of sweetening it with Splenda as I normally would, I’ve been adding a little more flavor without adding any artificiality by brewing it over fresh mint leaves. Letting the mint sit in the hot water for a few minutes brings some freshness to the tea and changes up the otherwise delicate flavor.
2. Before you sit down for your main course at dinner, fill up on a green salad with veggies and a low-fat or fat-free dressing. The volume and fiber of the salad will keep you from digging into your entrée on an empty stomach, which almost always leads to overeating. Do this at home and at restaurants!
3. You might already know about my love affair with egg whites. Even at cheat meals, I sometimes opt for them because I hardly notice a difference between egg whites and whole eggs. But if you’re in the egg whites are gross and creepy club, try mixing a spoonful of low-fat cottage cheese to your whites before scrambling them. It will add some creaminess and extra protein without adding too many calories.
