Remember the kitchen? Refrigerators weren’t originally designed to just hold our leftover take-out meals. The beauty of cooking your own meals is that you have more control over the ingredients you use and the health benefits of the meal. Whatever your level of cooking, set a goal to cook one or two more meals at home per week.

And packing your lunch the night before not only saves you calories, but it will make a big difference in your budget, too. Since your meal is decided ahead of time, you’ll be less likely to be tempted to eat something else.
Stop Multitasking… at least when it comes to eating
It’s tempting to check out Twitter or Facebook while you chow down on our lunch, especially if you’re eating alone. With no one to talk to, what else can you do? For starters, stop to enjoy your food. Taste and enjoy every bite.
Take in your surroundings – or even “people watch.” When you pay attention to what you’re eating, you make better food choices and realize when you’re full.
Bo Bennet said, “The discipline you learn and character you build from setting and achieving a goal can be more valuable than the achievement of the goal itself.”
