  1. This one always gets hot... I personally don't want to touch Aspartame, although I know it is in a lot of lower in fat products, such as my yogurt. So while I consume in moderation, I wouldn't recommend drinking alot of Diet Coke or the like. I personally think it is rat poison, but that is just my humble (very humble) opinion. In coffee, I guess I am old school, because I like Sweet n' Low, which I know makes some people nervous. All in all, it doesnt really matter which you choose, if you feel the same after both. They are all processed in some way (except Stevia I guess) so neither is that great for you!
  2. Pretty much all of those sprays have points, if you used enough to equal the olive oil in the recipe. I find the nutrition info misleading, because it is just oil that mists so finely the calories are nominal. Further, the serving size says 1 second spray. If you read the fine print, a 7 second spray has 10 calories and a gram of fat, which essentially means 100% fat, like any other oil. Hope that helps.
  3. I have been desperately trying to get info on this place, because I love it! I then saw the article, but I actually think this is "do-able" on our way of life... Here is what I can figure out...If we get a chicken burrito bol with lettuce as a base rather than rice, it will look like this. #Lettuce:0pts #Chicken:6pts (4oz plus added fats, a high guesstimate...) #Beans:3 pts #Rice(ask for just a bit, maybe 1/2 cup) 2pts **By the way, I saw the rice being made, it was rice, lime juice and cilantro or whatever the green flecks are** #Tons of cubed tomatoes: 0pts #Other salsas like the corn: 1pt So all of that, 12 points, which is a pretty reasonable meal, since it is so filling, and you are getting some points from protein, and tons of fiber. Agree/Disagree??? Oh- and the tortilla is 7 points alone, so forgo that, and you are already doing better!
  4. Does the soy slender have that watery consistency, or is it anything like Silk or Sun Soy? TIA!
  5. NEON: What is Slender Soymilk, as I can only find 2-3 point soymilks. Are these in the refridgerated section? TIA! Jamie
  6. TJ's are the best and seem to be lower in points too. I have seen the point vary brand by brand. Anyone else? Also, I prepare them just by putting them in a mug and letting them sit in the hot water from the coffee machine for 5 minutes. I love to eat them at work, and this prep method is so easy!!!
  7. Patinoe, (sorry if I butchered your name) Try taking the lid off for a few minutes before removing it. That might help it to thicken. I think that is what I did. Try that before using less of everything. I worry that the chicken then wouldnt cook but burn. Hope that helps! :eek:

  9. Buddies, just so you know, you can try this with other combos. I have heard people do the devils food with Dr. Pepper or Root Beer (diet of course) I tried making a lemon cake with mountain dew. It was great. Some people make spice with orange. Its all quite good and the soda makes it nice and tangy. I give it
  10. Dying to know how this turns out. If anyone tries it, post immediately!!! chocolate, low points? My three favorite words!!!
  11. Oh I love using shake & bake for that. Dont forget eggplant slices dipped in egg (dont worry, the points are nominal because one egg will do many servings) and then dipped in shake and bake, with red sauce and some mozzarella (ff, rf, whatever you want, just count it) for amazing and lowfat eggplant parmigan. Oh, and the shake and bake has different flavors, like garlic and herb. YUM!!! I get rave reviews for this one!

    PIE CRUST!!!

    So, I have been searching for a pie crust that is only 1 pt per serving, and I found one... 3/4 cup flour 3 tablespoons soft, whipped diet margarine -- tub style 2 tablespoons powdered sugar Spray 9" pie plate with Pam. Mix crust ingredients with a fork and press into prepared pie plate. Bake crust at 350º until golden brown for 10-14 minutes. Cool crust 10-15 minutes before filling. Serving size: 1/6 of piecrust, 1 point I havent tried it yet, but it looks perfect. I am not really that picky, since the crust takes the flavor of the pie, but I needed a great base to pies! If anyone tries it, let me know how it is. When I try it, I will be sure to report back!
  13. I just reread this, and I noticed that I used only 2 cups of milk. I dont know if 4 would have been better, but I think I am happy with 2. It was very mousse like, and i wouldnt want it any thinner. Anyone else find 2 cups more than enough?
  14. My favorite thing is being able to use the frozen breasts too, since who has time to defrost... Anyway, I think I will like this better with a kickier sauce. When I made this, I had to add a lot of seasonings, cause I like things with KICK! Other than that, very good. I ate it several days in a row, so I am now sick of it, but I think it is time to revisit!
