  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried the 1 point truffles at gaylesmiracles.com and whether they were any good. Apparently the New York Times has given them a thumbs up but I didn't want to pay all that money for them and it turns out that they taste bad. In case anyone wanted more info - it says they have 30 calories, 1 gram of fat, less than 1 gram of fiber, 6 grams of carbs and are individually wrapped. thanks, Betina
  2. I wasn't very impressed with the Crystal lite sunrise. I also had to dilute it alot because it had a funny aftertaste. I'm sticking with SF Tang. - betina

    Greek Ziti

    Okay where's the recipe? I'm salivating here! - Betina
  4. Joanne, thanks for posting! I was just about to ask if anyone had tried the la tortilla factory tortillas and if they thought these were tastier. I guess I'm headed to Sams! - betina
  5. I tried the rotini, the mac and cheese, and the alfredo. The flavor is good on all of them but after the first bite you notice a sort of powdery film on your teeth. It reminds me of a thin film of that polish the dentist puts on your teeth after he is done cleaning them. It is really strange. I started putting only half of the mix in with the pasta and it isn't as bad but I don't think I would buy this again. Has anyone else noticed the powderiness? - betina
  6. I just tried the Banquet Fat Free Chicken Breast Patties today and I thought they were decent. They are like a Jack in the Box chicken patty but less flavorful. They are 2 points per patty (90 calories, 1 fiber, 0 fat). They take about 2 minutes to cook in the microwave and 16 in the oven. I found them at Super Walmart and they were 2.12 for a box of 4 patties. So if you are looking for something fast, cheap, and low points or are just wanting something that has that fake fast food taste then this isn't a bad buy. - betina
  7. That's awesome Pat! Congratulations! - Betina
  8. Last Christmas while shopping at Sam's Club I sampled some chicken stuffed with cranberry stuffing. I didn't much care for the chicken but I loved the stuffing. I was hoping on making some for Thanksgiving this year for the turkey but I don't have a recipe. I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for a cranberry stuffing that they thought tasted good. - Betina
  9. Main Dish 4 servings at 3 points each. CHICKEN SALAD 2 cups cooked, cooled, and chopped chicken breast 2 tablespoons thinly chopped onion 2 tablespoons diced celery 1/2 cup diced granny smith green apple 1/2 cup halved seedless purple grapes 2 tablespoons fat free miracle whip 2 tablespoons light sour cream Optional: Chopped pecans or Sliced Water Chestnuts Mix it all up and serve on a bed of lettuce or on whole wheat bread. If you add the chopped pecans or water chestnuts be sure to adjust points. The water chestnuts are high in fiber so the point value may go down depending on how many you add. NOTE: I do not have mastercook. I have been counting it as 3 points - according to my calculations each serving has 153 calories, .75g fiber, and 3.25g fat. If anyone has mastercook and could double check that would be great. - Betina [ November 04, 2003, 01:43 PM: Message edited by: Betina ]
  10. I'm so excited. Just wanted to post that I weighed in today and I've lost 62 lbs total. That means I have lost 20% of my body weight!! - Betina
  11. I love these!!! 1.70 seems kind of high though. I usually get them for 98 cents. I also like their salisbury steak and potato dinner that they make. - Betina
  12. Hi Guys, I tried the HB turkey pepperoni pizza and it was better than the veggie. The pepperoni was wonderful - it tasted like the real thing. I actually liked the pepperoni HB alot better than the lean cuisine. - Betina
  13. I had the Heaven's Bistro Grilled Vegetable tonight and I liked it. The cheese melted but not quite as well as I would have liked. As far as flavor goes - it kind of reminded me of the rising crust pizza that jenny craig makes but it had a much much thicker crust. It seemed like the crust was an inch thick. I will say that I have had better tasting pizzas though. Still it seems like this one is really nutritous and something I could have daily. For a third of the pizza you get 4 grams of fiber, 13 grams of protein, and 30% of your calcium for the day. I will probably be buying more of these just because I am willing to sacrifice a little flavor for extra quantity - I'm a bulk eater. I don't think I would spend the extra money to order them over the internet though. - Betina
  14. Hi, I don't know if this is the right board to post on but I just wanted to let everyone know that I found Heaven's Bistro Pizza and Barry's Bakery French Twists at the New Super Target that opened on Parmer in Austin. - betina
  15. Are these shelf stable or frozen? I have never seen anything but the Dinty Moore canned soups. Where did you find them in the grocery store? Thanks for posting - I'm always looking for premade meals that I can microwave. - Betina
  16. I have tried the blackberry and strawberry. I think they are great with PB but I don't care for them by themselves - they have a bit of an after taste. I was really surprised that they were as good as they were though. Its really hard to make things like jam and jelly without sugar. - Betina
  17. They are very good. They are about the size of one of the frozen bagels you can get at the store and they taste normal and have a good consistency. They make really great sandwhiches, pizza bagels, and are good with jelly or cream cheese. Totally worth the money. - Betina
  18. Thanks for posting about the da vinci peanut butter. I was curious but wanted to check before buying a bottle and paying shipping and everything. I don't think I will be purchasing it. Thanks again, Betina
  19. Thanks for posting the article. I don't think that the active meal is going to do very well. They already have salads at McDonalds so it doesn't sound like they are really making much of a change. I know when I go to McDonalds I do not want to eat a salad. I would prefer it if they would have a grilled chicken sandwhich, veggie burger, turkey burger, or even a regular burger made with the 5% fat ground beef offered on a whole wheat bun at a reasonable price. I think that would do better than these salad meals. - Betina
  20. I have managed to successfully add the Peter Pan Whipped Peanut Butter to my diet. Last week I had a peanut butter sandwhich every day for lunch and I lost 3.5 lbs for the week. I am just thrilled that I can have it again and I'm totally in control. I just never thought peanut butter could fit into a weight loss plan. I am so glad I didn't buy one of those low fat ones. I was really surpised at how good the whipped was. I can't tell the difference - it is just easier to spread than the regular peanut butter.
  21. I was thinking about buying the peanut butter Da Vinci syrup and was wondering if anyone had purchased it and how they liked it. I really wanted it to mix with frozen yogurt or ice cream. I like peanut butter ice cream but the only low fat one I can find are the Skinny Cow Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwhiches.
  22. They are a good size - about the size of the frozen ones you can buy at the grocery store.

    Nan, Thank you! I saw this post awhile ago and ever since I have been looking for the Freschetta spinach and mushroom pizza at the store. They finally ordered some in and I bought one today. It was heavenly. The flavor was wonderful. It really is something I can have as an everyday meal and it is not only great tasting but filling. The lean cuisine pizzas are like 290 calories and 9 grams of fat and taste nowhere near as good as this. I would have never known to try these pizzas because I generally stay out of that area so thank you again for posting this great find. - Betina
  24. Carol, thanks you so much for posting about the smuckers single servings. I have been saying how I wish someone would put peanut butter in individual servings and here someone already had. I love peanut butter but haven't had any in the house since last December. When I was a kid my dad always had me on a diet and would never let me have peanut butter. It was like the thing I craved most and then I would have to watch all the other kids eat PB&J sandwhiches with their lunch while I was stuck eating a salad. Anyway when I'm around an open jar of it I have a real control problem. Since being on weight watcher's I feel like I'm in control now but this is really like the ultimate challenge for me. I have been eating the peanut butter skinny cows and the peanut butter pria bars and am able to control that so this is the next big step for me. I am going to go with the Peter Pan whipped but if I can't keep myself in check then I will just get the Smuckers individual servings until I learn to eat it in moderation. Thank you again for telling me about the Smuckers! Thanks to all of you for your posts about the peanut butter. -Betina
