Snack-O- Lantern


  • Navel orange
  • Canned or fresh fruit salad
  1. To make one lantern, use a small knife to slice the top off a navel orange and cut around its interior to hollow it out. Scoop out the orange segments, chop them, and mix them with canned or fresh fruit salad.
  2. Carve small facial features in one side of the orange, then cut a slit in the lid to accommodate the handle of a green plastic spoon. Fill the lantern with fruit salad. Insert the spoon and set the lid in place.

Tip #18: Practice Portion Control

If you’re like me, you don’t just eat for the fuel the food gives your body. You love the taste of your food and that keeps you going back for seconds, even if you aren’t hungry anymore. If you are cooking a meal at home, it is a good idea to place a serving of the food on your plate, then immediately put the rest away for leftovers the next day. If it requires more work to get the food back out of the fridge, you are less likely to over eat than if that delicious food is still sitting on the counter when you finish what’s on your plate.

You can also separate the leftovers and store them in single servings. This way, you will be less likely to overeat the next time you get out that food, and it can be an easy lunch to take to work the next day.
