  1. Hi fellow blue team members! Congrats to those who have had good losses this week. Keep it up! I had a GREAT week, was 100% OP, did a ton of activity and even started jogging for the first time in years... but lacklaster performance at the scale with a 0.6 pound gain. What can you do? I'm having a good time being OP and enjoying the extra activity so I just plan to do the same, but start eating more of my APs, maybe that will make a difference
  2. Ugh - I had a WTF gain this week. Up 0.6 pounds after working my butt off and being OP. Oh well, hopefully next week will be great!
  3. I use the fat free half and half, typically 1/4 cup is all I need for my cup of coffee and that comes to one point. I find that it gets it to exactly the color I like it with fewer points than skim milk does... and still feels rich.
  4. Hi guys - Dear Blue Team - I haven't been by on the chat thread yet. Lots of competing priorities this week... and unfortunately a gain at the scale to show for it. Just wanted to apologize to my teammates and reassure you that I am planning for a BANG UP week ahead to make it up to you (and me!). Fridge is stocked with fresh food and meals for the week planned and about to be cooked... its gonna be a great week ladies, I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES Congrats to all my teammates who had a great loss this week! You inspire me.

  9. I don't think there is a problem with them. Yeah, they are high in sodium, but for most people who don't have high blood pressure that's not the end of hte world. I think the biggest problem is what are you going to do when you get to your goal? How will you go back to eating 'normally' if the way you got there was with frozen food. I think a large part of weight loss for many people is learning how to prepare healthy meals that they enjoy eating and control their portions... so they can keep doing that at goal. One of my meeting leaders lost over 100 pounds just eating smart ones twice a day and she said the weight came off really fast, and then as soon as she got to goal it started to pile back on because she didn't know how to eat properly without the pre-made, pre-portioned frozen dinners.
  10. I've never used it... but I've been experimenting with various combinations of FF cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, FF evaporated milk, and gelatin to make 'cheesecake' and pretty much all of them work well. I agree that the ricotta is much creamer and a nice consistency for it.

  14. Broccoli and Tofu in spicy peanut sauce Recipe Source: The Enchanted Broccoli Forest Prep time: 45 Min. Cook time: 30 Min. Serves: 4 Ingredients 2 tbsp peanut butter 1/8 cup hot water 6 tbsp vinegar (rice or cider) 3 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper 1 1-lb bunch of fresh broccoli 3 tsp. peanut or canola oil 2 tsp. freshly-grated ginger root 4 medium cloves garlic, minced or put through a garlic press 1 lb. tofu, cut in small cubes 2 c. thinly-sliced onions 1 c. coarsely-chopped raw peanuts (I seldom add these) 3 tbsp. soy sauce (2 or 3 T) 2 freshly-minced scallions Servings- 4 Points - 6 If PB increased to 1/4 cup - 7 points Instructions Part One: The Sauce In a small saucepan, whisk together the peanut butter and the hot water until you have a uniform mixture. Whisk in the remaining ingredients, and set aside. Part Two: The Saute 1. Cut off the bottom half-inch of the broccoli stems. Shave off the tough outer skins of the stalks with a sharp paring knife or a vegetable peeler. Cut the stalks diagonally into thin slices. Coarsely chop the flowerettes. Set aside. 2. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes and place them in a medium sized pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Loewr the heat and ismmer for about 10 minutes Drain and set aside. (Note: precooking the tofu in this way helps it hold its shape in the stir fry) 3. Wipe the wok with a paper towel, and return it to the stove to begin heating once again. Add the remaining 2 tbsp. of oil to the hot wok, and follow suit with the remaining ginger and garlic. Salt lightly. Add the onions, and grind in some fresh black pepper. Saute, stirring frequently, over medium heat, until the onions are soft (about 5 minutes). [Note: I stop this step before the onions are quite soft.] 4. On another burner, begin heating the peanut-tofu sauce on a very low flame. It shouldn’t actually cook—it only needs to be warmed through. 5. Add the broccoli and the chopped peanuts to the wok. Add 2-3 tbsp. tamari, and stir-fry over medium-high heat until the broccoli is bright green and just tender (about 5 minutes). 6. Pour the heated peanut sauce over the saute. Toss gently until everything is coated with everything else. Sprinkle in the minced scallions as you toss. Serve over rice, and pass around some additional tamari, hot sauce, and even more chopped peanuts, if desired.
  15. I use evernote (http://www.evernote.com) it's a free note taking software that I love love love love... (seriously, it has totally changed my life). You can type in notes, copy and paste them, take digital images or scans... you can just click a button on your browser and it will make a website into a note... then you can file your notes into folders and tabs (recipes, beef, chicken, tofu, tried, untried, etc). AND it will automatically sync to an online version that you can log onto from anywhere. So when you are at work thinking that you want to make that awesome recipe and if you could just remember the ingredients so you could stop by the store, then you have it. AND if you have an iphone, blackberry or treo you also have access to all your notes on your phone. I am obsessed with evernote. I started using it mainly for recipes, but its slowly taking over my life. I use it for my weight watchers journal (I journal throughout the day on my phone, then copy and paste it into my BCB journal), for taking notes on work related stuff, when I drink a bottle of wine I really like I take a snapshot of the label and save that in evernote so I can find it at the store, etc.
