  1. Congratulations. Know you are doing the dance of joy. Each pound is a milestone in my book. Keep up the good work.
  2. What an inspiration you are. Congratulations on your weight loss!!!! You are doing GREAT.
  3. This is a quick and easy recipe ... To make frozen pudding pops ... mix up 1 package of FF/SF jello pudding. Divide into four servings into paper 3 oz cups and insert a popsicle stick. Put in freezer. 1 point each Do the same as above with SF jello or use the pre-made one and insert a stick and freeze. 0 points each They are great.
  4. A lot of times I omit the crust of the pie in recipes to cut calories, fat, and points. Usually turns out very good and no one seems to mind. I still put the filling into a pie pan making it easier to portion out.
  5. The above recipe is more a traditional type of cheesecake, this one is yummy but more of a thick pudding consistency. I make this one quite often and it is always a big hit. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake JoAnna Lund, Camp Courgeous CookBooklet, Pg 58 1 (8 ounce) package Philadelphia Fat Free Cream Cheese 1 (4-serving) package Jello Sugar Free Instant vanilla or chocolate pudding mix 2/3 cup Carnation nonfat dry milk powder 1 cup water 6 tablespoons Peter Pan Reduced Fat Peanut Butter (chunky or creamy) 1/4 cup Cool Whip Lite 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 (6 ounce) Keebler Chocolate Piecrust 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese with a spoon until soft. Add dry pudding mix, dry milk powder, and water. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in peanut butter, cool whip lite, and vanilla extract. Mix well to combine. Spread mixture into piecrust. Refrigerated at least 2 hours. Just before serving drizzle chocolate syrup over top. Cut into 8 servings. Serves 8 - Each serving equals: Heathy Exchanges Program: 1 1/4 protein, 1/2 bread, 1/4 skim milk, 3/4 slider, 10 optional calories. Nutritional Information: 242 calories, 10 gm Fat, 10 gm Protein, 28 gm Carbohydrate, 520 mg sodium, 1 gm fiber Diabetic: 1 starch, 1 carbohydrate, 1 meat, 1 fat Weight Watchers: 5 pts with crust, 2 pts without. Mary's notes: I use non fat cool whip and it works great in this recipe. I make it without the crust (cutting 110 calories and 5 gms of fat) but spread it into the pie plate. Much easier to divide that way, cut like a pie and scoop out. I have made this with a vanilla pudding mix and instead of peanut butter use Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread found in peanut butter isle ... less calories and fat than peanut butter) OR use 3 tablespoons Nutella and 3 tablespoons peanut butter (kind of like a Reese's peanut butter cup flavor).
  6. This is one of my favorite JoAnna Lund recipes for cheesecake ... Deli-Style New York Cheesecake JoAnna M Lund Cooking Healthy Across America Serves 12 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, either purchased or 12 (2-1/2 inch) graham cracker squares, made into crumbs 1/4 cup Splenda or Pourable Sugar Twin or Sprinkle Sweet 2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine, melted 3 (8-ounce packages) Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese 2 (4-serving packages) Jell-O sugar-free vanilla cook-and-serve pudding mix (if you can’t find cook-and-serve you can use instant) 1 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder 1 cup water 3 eggs, slightly beaten, or equivalent in egg substitute 1/2 cup no fat sour cream 3 tablespoons lemon juice 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Preheat oven to 325°. Spray an 8-by-8-inch spring-form pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, Splenda, and margarine. Gently press crumbs into prepared pan. In a large bowl, stir cream cheese with a spoon until soft. Add dry pudding mix, dry milk powder, water, and eggs. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Gently rotate pan to settle batter. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until cake is set 2 inches from the edges, but the center is still pudding-like. Turn oven off, open door and let cake set in oven for 15 minutes. Place pan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Remove sides of pan and refrigerate cake for at least 2 hours. Cut into 12 servings. HINT: 1. A self-seal sandwich bag works great for crushing graham crackers. 2. When serving, good garnished with 1 tablespoon spreadable fruit and Cool Whip Lite or Free. Each serving equals: HE: 1-1/4 Protein (1/4 limited), 2/3 Bread, 1/4 Skim Milk, 1/4 Fat 168 Calories, 4 gm Fat, 10 gm Protein, 23 gm Carbohydrate, 433 mg Sodium, 207 mg Calcium, 0 gm Fiber DIABETIC: 1 Meat, 1 Starch/Carbohydrate, 1/2 Fat
