  1. I totally agree with Pandorra - I went on a 7 day cruise to the Mexican Riviera last October and although I had never been on a cruise before, I had heard enough about the 24 hour food/drinks and psyched myself up for the trip. I stuck with fresh fruit, low fat yogurt and cereal for breakfast, salads and seafood for lunch, a drink here and there and rarely had dessert at dinner. There were people on the ship having 2 entrees, and just as many desserts. The mindset was "well, I paid for it" - I had lost 23 pounds before the cruise and I wasn't about to "pay for it" by gaining. And I didn't. I also walked the Promenade Deck daily and we walked a lot on the port excursions. Will I ever go on a cruise again? Probably not, because you are surrounded by food and I love to eat but I found will power that I never knew I had to not go off program. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I'd rather stay in a hotel and go out to eat so that the entire buffet/sit down menu on a cruise isn't available to me. I was also horrified by all the extremely obese men and women in their bathing suits shoveling pizza, burgers, fries, etc. into their mouths on the pool deck. That was enough to make me stay OP. Good luck to you and enjoy the trip!
  2. Kraft makes a FF parmesan which you can probably find in the spaghetti sauce/pasta aisle at your supermarket.
  3. Check the box - calories/fat/fiber will tell you how many points.
  4. You can make these and save points and $$. Toast a 1 pt. English muffin, add a slice of 2% cheese, 1/4 cup of egg substitute that has been scrambled and 2 or 3 slices of thinly sliced deli ham - 4 points. You can also wrap them up and freeze them too. I thought the JD D-Lites were way over-priced.
  5. La Tortilla Factory makes a whole wheat tortilla. They are a bit larger than the Mission ones but are low fat and loaded with fiber. They also make a white flour tortilla that's high in fiber. Both are one point each. I prefer those but also like the Mission Carb Balance kind too.
  6. Low point breakfast: In a microwave safe bowl sprayed with non-stick spray, combine 1/2 cup egg substitute and 2 T. salsa (drain the salsa before adding so the eggs don't get watery). I love the chipotle salsa in this. Cook. Heat up a 1 point (high fiber) flour tortilla, add a slice of 2% American cheese and the cooked eggs. Roll it up and you have a breakfast burrito for 3 points. Good source of protein AND fiber.
  7. For those of you who enjoy the pumpkin spice lattes, here's what I do at home. I put 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice into my coffee grounds (for 4 cups) and mix them together in the filter/basket. Brew the coffee. Then I add 1-2 T. of FF 1/2 and 1/2, a little Splenda to taste and top with a dollop of FF Cool Whip. It's the closest thing to Starbucks but much cheaper!
  8. It's 2 points. Jolly Time 100 calorie bags are only 1 point.
  9. Thank you for the clarification ginnyb. I probably use about 1/4 cup of FF 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee per week and use it occasionally in cooking and will continue to do so. When I think back to all the crap I was shoving in my mouth before becoming OP, a little 1/2 and 1/2 isn't going to kill me.
  10. I found this on the first page of this thread. 1 point BLT: 2 slices light bread, toasted 1 tbs. fat free mayo 1 tbs. immatation bacon bits lettuce tomato slices Spread 1 slice of toast with mayo, sprinkle bacon bits on top. Layer on lettuce & tomato slices, top with remaining piece of toast.
  11. To BCB living in the Los Angeles area: Gelson's carries the Kashi pizza. I saw it in their ad last week but forgot to go buy one. I might try one this weekend.
  12. The "everything" flavored (garlic, seeds, onion) pretzel slims at TJ's are really good too. I think its 23 per serving for 110 calories and barely any fat. They really have that crunch factor. I think I'll grind some up in the food processor and use the crumbs as breading for chicken or HG's onion ring recipe. Good stuff!
  13. Go to hungrygirl.com. She has many recipes that use Fiber One. There is a recipe for onion rings that uses ground up Fiber One as the breading. She dips the onion rings in egg substitute then dredges them in the Fiber One and bakes them. I haven't tried the recipe yet but it sounds really good.
  14. I had one last week and I thought it had an "artificial sweetener aftertaste." I don't think I'll try another one, yet the lite coffee fraps taste fine to me.
  15. They sound disgusting. Wouldn't you rather spend 4 pts. for a cup of real pasta than have to worry about getting a fishy smell out of some spongy, slimy noodles?
