Spices.. make sure you season your food well. You can cut the fat, the sugar, and the portions, but to make up for that, there are seasonings that you can add to your foods that have little to no calories and make your meals much more satisfying. For example, with my oatmeal I will usually add in some anise seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, and raisins, then a small spoon of brown sugar. The anise really brings out the sweetness which means I use a lot less sugar than I would without it.

Another way for me personally to make sure I get my veggies and fruit is to be part of an organic veggie buying co-op.. I have to get back to that as soon as possible!
