**Fit Tip:  Add 10 More Chews to Every Bite.  Chewing your food facilitates the release of important nutrients and releases powerful enzymes that protect our cells. The average person chews each bite of food as few as 15 times. Try adding 10 more chews to every bite. Studies show that people who chewed more often also consumed 10% less food.

BREAKFAST:  Spinach omelet roll-up
SNACK:  Apple w/ natural pnut butter OR caramel dip & nuts
LUNCH:  Hummus & roasted veggie pizza
SNACK:  Spiced maple yogurt
DINNER:  Pistachio-Crusted Beef Kebabs With Cauliflower Couscous

Spinach Omelet Roll-Up:  Drizzle 1 teaspoon canola oil into a medium nonstick skillet and wipe with a paper towel so a thin film remains; heat over medium heat. Beat 1-2 eggs and swirl into skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until egg is set; flip and cook about 1 minute more. Carefully slide onto a plate. In same pan, sauté 1 cup baby spinach until wilted, about 1 minute. Top egg with wilted spinach, roll up, and cut in half.

SIMPLE EXERCISE PLAN:  Tricep Kick-Backs with Cans
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your torso forward slightly, flexing your knees. Hold the cans, palms facing inward, and extend your arms. Raise your arms behind you as far as is comfortable; keep your elbows soft, but do not bend them. Do 15-20 repetitions.
Tip: After doing a few arm movements with cans, make sure you gently rotate your wrists to keep them loose and comfortable.
