Ways to Make Dieting More Fun

• Instead of utensils, try eating with lit sparklers.

• To make drinking water more palatable, add sugar-free flavor crystals, scotch, or sugar-free scotch crystals.

• Buy caramel apples and scrape all the caramel off; now it’s just a healthy ol’ apple on a stick.

• Eat a ball of salad.

• A healthy drink can be made more “sassy” by adding some sassafras.

• Chocolate-covered vitamins.

• Drink your water out of a disco ball (see directions at end of post for converting disco ball into water bottle)

• They say “never skip breakfast,” but they never say “never skip during breakfast” so skip to your heart’s content.

• Remove all furniture from your dining room and eat all meals inside an inflatable moon bounce instead.

• Raw veggies are boring; crudités are exotic.

• Make healthy s’mores with roasted cauliflower, carob and melba toast (unless you worry about forever ruining a treasured childhood memory).

• Fat-free salad dressing fountain.

• Cotton balls aren’t as tasty as cotton candy, but waaaaay less sugar.

• When you’re ordering at a restaurant, make sure everything’s prepared to your exact specifications… and order in Pig Latin.

•Experiment with fresh herbs; try some fresh basil on tomatoes, some fresh rosemary in soup or fresh poison ivy on a salad.

•Make every meal a little more fun by reading my blog aloud to your family while eating.

Directions for converting disco ball into water bottle: (1) take disco ball, (2) drill hole in top, (3) fill with water, (4) drink water.

  9. Dear Jack-
    Today I have had one of the sh*ttiest days I can remember in a long time. It was heartbreaking.
