  1. I am curious as to how you add up points for certain things. For example, every morning I have a coffee with fat freee half and half and 1 ttsp. of sugar. Everything by itself is zero points but if you were to add all the calories, fat, and fiber...it would be 1 point. Do I add up the calories before hand or the total calories? I know that most of the time they are the same, however, there are those times that they aren't. Any advice??? Thanks, Sarah
  2. I just discovered the flatout flatbread, and I have been making pizza on those for dinner and they are amazing. I like to add the cocktail mini buffalo chicken sausage to it!
  3. For the longest time, I have been cooking chicken and then I'd weigh it I would meausre 4oz. However, I weighed 4 0z it the other night before I cooked it and then realized it was only 2.5 oz cooked. My question is that I have been eating 4oz of cooked chicken, does that mean that I have been eating more than 120 calories? Is the nutrition label for 4oz of chicken cooked or raw? THANKS!!
  4. Is this it?? 8 slices reduced-calorie whole-wheat bread, cut into 1-inch pieces 1/2 C. raisins 4 C. skim milk 1 1/3 C. fat-free egg substitute 3 T. sugar 1 T. vanilla extract 1/2 t. cinnamon Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 2-quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Place bread in casserole; sprinkle with raisins. In medium bowl, combine milk, egg substitute, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon; pour evenly over bread mixture. Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack 10 minutes; serve warm. Calories:175 Fat:1 Carbohydrates:33 Fiber:2 Protein:10
  5. I love Mexican food, so I was trying to find a healthy meal that would fit my cravings. One quesadilla is only 5 points. Turkey & Cheese Quesadillas 1 lb. 99% fat free ground turkey 1 packet taco seasoning Carb Balance Mission Tortillas (110 Calories/wrap) Cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar Light sour cream Salsa Cook the turkey in saute pan. Add taco seasoing packet and 2 tbsp. of salsa. Take a wrap and cover 1/2 with 2 oz. turkey, 1 ounce cheese, fold in half and place in saute pan to melt. Cut into wedges and serve with 2 tbsp. sour cream, and 2 tsbp. of salsa. Let me know what you think! Calories: 280 Fat: 7.5 Carbohydrates: 22 Fiber: 11 Protein: 29
  6. I've heard of "0 point vegetables." Can anyone let me know what they are? and is it how ever many you want or just a certain amount. For cucumbers, I know they are really low in calories, but if i have 3 cups worth, does it equal a point or still a no point veggie?? THANKS
  7. you sound just like me. i go to the store in the beginning of the week and get peppers, cucumbers, onions, snap peas, and a ton of salad stuff. i wash all my veggies and chop them up and store them in bags. i also grill a pound of chicken. when i get home, all i have to do is throw together a salad and grab a drink. it's worked really well for me, because i usually come home starving and therefore eat whatevers in my cabinet!! great minds think alike!

    Sweet Yogurt

    If any of you have ever had Chobani yogurt, you would know that the nonfat plain one tastes like typical greek yogurt. Since I gave up sweets and candy for Lent, I was determined to find something sweet that I could have for dessert. I took a nonfat Chobani plain yogurt, added 2 tsp. splenda and 1 tsp. cinnamon. It makes for a GREAT sweet dish....only 100 calories and 18 grams of protein!! Let me know what you all think
  9. thanks for all the advice!
  10. I have a question. I have been just making up my own recipes and measuring each of the ingredients. When figuring out how many points each serving it, do I take the total number of calores/fat/fiber for the whole recipe or do I figure out the points for each individual ingredient and then add them up? Thanks, Sarah
  11. Hello everyone,

     

    I am currently on the weight watchers program, and I started about a few weeks ago. It's a little difficult for me and trying to figure out points for the foods that i prepare for myself. If i were to make meatloaf, would i add all the calories/fat/fiber up and then do the points, or do each individual ingredient? THANKS!
