  1. It would really help if you could get a TV in your bedroom. Walk Away the Pounds are great videos and require very little space. Also, maybe you could do some stretching exercises. Crunches in your bed. Do you have any weights? Maybe some simple weight lifting -- great exercise for the arms. If all else fails, there's the beautiful outdoors. Walking is great exercise and you don't need any special equipment.
  2. Thanks for all the great ideas. Warm weather is coming and I'll be making a lot of these. Bumpin' up!
  3. I'm pretty sure I've seen this brand at Smart & Final. Guess I'll have to give it a try. Thanks.
  4. Thanks for bumping -- just happen to have some Barilla Plus marcaroni too.
  5. Ha-Ha-Ha---- ROFL --- Ha- Ha-Ha. Oh. You were serious, weren't you. Sorry!
  6. I'm home this Saturday morning and I'm finally going to get around to making this. Can hardly wait after reading all the rave reviews. I think I will go ahead and add some cinnamon and nutmeg. I'll let you all know how it comes out! Well I gave it a try and I'll give this one a 2 thumbs up. I did add the cinnamon and nutmeg. And (for my taste) had to add a little more splenda sprinkled on top after it had cooked. And also poured a little FF Evaporated Milk on top. It was really, really good. Comfort food, for sure, and very easy to make. Now I need to wash my dishes. . .
  7. Just a caution. . .I recently learned that "No Sugar Added" and "Sugar Free" are two different things. "No Sugar Added" means that it still contains sugar, they just haven't added anything to it. I recently checked these fillings out at WalMart and I hope I remember this correctly, but I think they had anywhere from 11 to 16 grams of sugar. So these are not "Sugar Free" and they still have calories. Just thought you'd all want to know that. (I'm sure the points values for these recipes are still the same.)
  8. Hi Stacy! Thanks for all the great recipes. Looks like you're off to a great start on the program. Just wanted to say that I love all the Mrs. Dash Seasonings and like to add them to almost anything including my steamed veggies. Depending on the vegetable, sometimes a little bit of lemon juice is good, or a little bit of balsamic vinegar, also ICBINB spray.
  9. Thanks for bumping this up, Joanne. I keep meaning to give it a try. Have to remember to buy Cream of Wheat!
  10. FF Jalapeno Pringles are gr-e-a-t. I found them at WalMart but that's been some time ago. I snatched up 4 packs when I found them and still have a couple pkgs left since I started CORE.
  11. I love soup and am always on the lookout of new recipes (especially Core). I'm printing this out so I can make it this week-end. Thanks.
  12. 1 regular Tootsie Roll Pop = 1 pt. or/ 3 mini Tootsie roll pops = 1 pt. (This is great because you can spread them out throughout the day.
  13. One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over breakfast. They hear the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through."Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again. The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park..." Then the power goes out. Norman's wife is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?" With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to Blondes exhibit, Normansays... Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?"
  14. Thanks Momster. That's a very good idea! Maybe they put it in that section because they consider soybeans vegetables?
  15. I would love to try this recipe. It looks so good. I have all the ingredients except for the FF Cheddar. I always look for this when I go to the store, but can never find it. Any suggestions?
  16. I recently had the Tex-Mex burgers. They were very yummy! That with some refried beans and some corn. (I'm on Core). Makes a yummy meal and I can hardly wait to go back and get some more.
  17. The 98-year-old Mother Superior was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey comfortable. They gave her some warm milk to drink but she refused. One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Remembering a bottle of whiskey received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened and poured a generous amount into the warm milk. Back at Mother Superior's bed, she held the glass to her lips. Mother drank a bit, then a bit more and before they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop. "Mother," the nuns asked with earnest, "please give us some wisdom before you die." Mother Superior raised herself up in bed and with a very pious look on her face said, "Don't ever sell that cow."
  18. Poached Huevos Rancheros Many people love Huevos Rancheros. This healthy version will allow you to eat this favorite often. It is easy to prepare, and not too spicy, with a lot of flavor. This breakfast will satisfy and sustain you for hours. Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes Ingredients: 4 free range chicken eggs 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, or any other light vinegar about 4 cups water 3 + 1 TBS chicken or vegetable broth 2 cans of black beans, drained 1 medium onion, minced 4 medium cloves garlic, chopped 2 tsp ground cumin 1 1/2 TBS red chili powder 2 TBS chopped fresh cilantro salt and black pepper to taste prepared salsa 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce 1 large avocado, cubed Directions: Bring water and vinegar to a light boil in a shallow pan. Make sure there is enough water to cover eggs. In a separate stainles steel skillet heat 1 TBS broth. Healthy Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring frequently, until translucent. Add garlic, beans, red chili powder, cumin, and rest of broth while egg water is coming to a boil. Cook beans for about 10 minutes on medium low heat, stirring occasionally. Add cilantro, salt and pepper. To poach eggs, crack into water and cook about 5 minutes, just until the white is set and the yolk have filmed over. Remove with a slotted spoon, and place eggs over beans. Serve with salsa, shredded romaine lettuce and avocado. Serves 4 Healthy Cooking Tips: You may want to add less or more chili powder according to your personal preference for spiciness. Make sure you do not add any salt to the poaching water for the eggs. The salt has a tendency to dissolve the egg whites. By making sure there is enough water in the poaching pan to cover eggs, you avoid the eggs sticking to the bottom of the pan. You want the eggs to float while they cook. This also avoids breaking the eggs when you remove them with the slotted spoon. You may want to lay the spoon with the egg on a towel briefly after removing egg from water. This allows the towel to absorb some of the poaching water, and it won’t end up in your beans.

  19. I found these today at Albertsons here in So. Cal. They were on sale for 5 for $9.00. That comes out less than $2 apiece! I'm stocking up!
  20. Thanks Sue, for taking the time to research that for us!
  21. Thanks granny! I'm thinking about switching back to CORE especially after looking over the great recipes once again. So many to choose from and they all look so yummy. Just one question, excuse me for being naive, but I noticed whenever you use chicken in a recipe, you add R-T-C. I've wracked my brain (small as it may be) to try and figure out what that stands for. At first I thought it had something to do with removing the skin, but that wouldn't fit. Or does it have something to do with cutting it up in small cubes? Please enlighten me. Thank You.
  22. Sounds yummy -- I'll be trying this soon. Love chili-mac anyway.
