  1. Hmmm...what is the word on lean ground pork? My WW book is sooo old, I don't even know what current core guidelines are!!
  2. Hello! I hope you don't mind if I join in. I've been lurking for a couple months while I get back into the swing of things, and would really love to have a place to discuss core. I was here last spring, a former flexer- tried core and lost 20lbs in 2 months...and then got pregnant for the third time. I followed many core principals during pregnancy, but still gained over 60lbs. SO, I now have a healthy 4.5mo old, and have 4 great weeks of core completed. Down 10lbs, 40 more to go. I know, I know- you've heard it all before- core is great! I occasionally consider doing a flex week, but core is so versatile, it hasn't been necessary. AND I really love the lifelong implications and way that it can build healthy eating habits for the whole family. I find with flex, I can revert to less healthy food too easily. Anyway, that's where I'm at in a nutshell. I look forward to getting to know you, and to learning from you! I guess I should mention, too- I'm in the middle of a maternity leave, so I'm home with some extra time on my hands and in desperate need of adult interaction! Tara
  3. The frozen banana recipe is also very good with cherries and cocoa. (Tastes like chocolate cherry soft serve.) BUT beware- it can also result in a bad stomach ache...lol...
  4. I love this conversation! Thank you for refreshing my memory, and providing clarification regarding, the sigh. As the mother of three children- ages 5, 3 and 4 months, I find myself racing through way too many meals. And I really feel like I am too focused on eating as much as I can in as short of time possible. Just reading this thread is motivating, I'm going to try hard to keep the key points in mind!! Tara
  5. BUMP!!! I add corn to the recipe, as well, and use it for a base for chicken taco bake! (ff ref beans; onions, taco sauce, chicken breast chunks, soy cheese!) Served with salad...I usually eat it every day until it is gone!!
  6. Wow- your butt and waist are so toned! Looking good!! Tara
  7. Ravioli Minestrone Soup In 1 TB oil, cook 1 small onion, 1 c chopped carrots, 2 cloves minced garlic, and 1/2 c chopped celery. (4-5 minutes) Add 2 cans of beans- I used 1 mixed and 1 black beans. Add 1 can of tomatoes- I like the ones that are have garlic and olive oil in them. Throw in 2 c of water and 1/2 tsp oregeno. Cook for 20 minutes. Stir in 1 small can of beef ravioli with sauce. Cook until hot. Makes 8 1c servings. 3 pts per serving. Very filling and pretty tasty- different from straight veggies!
  8. Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole 2 peppers (1 red, 1 green) finely chopped 1 onion finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 TB chili pepper 1 can diced tomatoes (14oz) 2 TB ketchup 1 TB chopped cilantro 3 small chicken breasts, baked and finely chopped 1 TB lemon juice 1 jar salsa 6 small (6"?) corn tortillas 1 c lf cheddar, shredded lf sour cream, optional Preheat oven to 350. Heat large nonstick skillet and cook peppers, onion, garlic, chili powder until softened. Add tomatoes, 1 c water, ketchup and cilantro. Cook 5 minutes. In bowl combine chicken and lemon/lime juice. Stir in to tomato mixture. Spread 1/2c salsa in ungreased 9x13 pan. Top with 3 tortillas. {2 side by side, 1 cut in half to fill in space) Top with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 c cheese. Top with remaining tortillas. Spread with remaining salsa; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until cheese is melted; about 15 minutes. Garnish with sour cream. The points for this will depend on the cheese and tortillas you use. My cheese was 14 pts, tortillas 1 pt each. This is 26 pts for the entire casserole; cut into 8 pieces and garnished with lf sour cream it is about 3.5 pts per piece. Its very filling!! Tara
