  1. Hi there! I know I'm responding a bit late but thought I'd put in my two cents anyway. I'm actually pregnant (4 months) and have been having sporadic problems with swollen ankles/feet. My doctor has told me to start eating more watermelon and blueberries - both are natural diuretics. Also, paradoxically, the more water you drink, the less you retain. So I was also told to keep drinking water throughout the day. Hope this helps!
  2. I made this last night and it was excellent!!! I did somewhat modify the recipe so I could lower the points. I used 96%FF ground beef, omitted the cheese and added an extra can of kidney beans. Thanks so much for sharing this. I think it's going to taste even better today for lunch after it's been sitting overnight in the fridge!
  3. WOW!!!! I can't believe someone didn't think of this sooner. I usually spray my crock with Pam so it doesn't get THAT bad. But it's bulky and hard to wash in the sink.
  4. I can't wait to try this!!!!
  5. The best way I've found is to simmer it on the stove. It's 1 part bulgur to 2 parts water (like rice). A lot of people have luck just letting it sit and soak in but that doesn't work for me unless I do it overnight. When I cook it on low on the stove, I can use it that night for dinner. As for recipes, I like it plain with some ICBINB spray and salt (or hot salt). I've also mixed in sauteed veggies so it's almost like a pilaf. Or sprinkle in some some RF cheese...it's so versatile.
  6. I think it might be because it was on too long. I work a long day too so what I usually do is cook it over night. My crockpot's inner ceramic piece lifts out so I just put that in the fridge and reheat when I get home at night. True, it's not as convenient as coming home to hot chicken, but for me it's better than nothing!!
  7. Bump! I had this last night for dinner. Oh my gosh - it really helped my craving!
  8. I input the information into the electronic points calculator at WW on-line and it said 5.
  9. Please let us know what the new point values are once you run this through! I really love the sound of this but just can't get away with a 7 point side dish. Well, unless I make it my supper.
  10. Ahhh...I've got too much water. I saw a post that someone left saying she does 1 part bulgur to 4 parts water. It seemed like a lot so I did drop it to 1 part bulgur to 3 parts water which was much better but still had liquid. I can't wait to try it again. Thank you!
  11. Like many of you, I've joined the bulgur bandwagon and absolutely love it. However, I always think I'm doing something wrong because when i cook it, the water never fully absorbs and I end up draing it off the top. I've tried two different kinds/brands of bulgur...and followed people's instructions on here. But always end up with it being very liquidy. Am I doing something wrong?
  12. This sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. It's funny how sometimes the best recipes can come out of experimentation.
  13. Thanks for sharing - and even more thanks for the good review. I love doing roasts in the crockpot but have been looking for a new one to try. Cant' wait!
  14. With all this hot weather I"ve got tomatoes coming out my ears. I never thought I'd say this but I'm running out of recipe ideas. Any one have some good suggestions?!
  15. Barbara!!! I keep meaning to tell you what I've been thinking for awhile now: I'm so happy you've gone CORE!!!
