  1. Thanks so much for the information, DES2! Much appreciated.
  2. under the new plan? I don't see any info on the WW website. If a no-track option is still offered, can you start on it right away if you join meetings? Thanks for any help.
  3. Dang, I thought the death of the once-a-day rule was too good to be true. Thanks for the info, Lynn, that's, what I needed to know!
  4. I'm not really a newbie, I've done Core before and really liked it. Switched to low carb for awhile and did ok but got tired of it and thinking of going back to WW. A few questions: 1. I've been gone from WW so long that I know I will have to re-join as a new member. Will they make me do the points-counting plan for six weeks? I really don't want to and it is the main thing that has been holding me back from rejoining meetings. 2. From the stickies it looks to me like the once-a-day rule for potatoes, rice and cereal has been removed. Is this the case or am I reading it wrong? 3. Are there any other specific changes from the old Core plan I should be aware of? Thanks for your help!
  5. Are you going anywhere near Mansfield in your travels? Marion is about an hour southwest. Things to do in/near Mansfield: Kingwood Center -- mansion & gardens left to the city by a wealthy industrialist, house and garden open for touring Mansfield Reformatory (google their website for hours/days and tours) -- old gothic-style prison where the movie Shawshank Redemption was filmed, it is also rumored to be haunted if you like ghost tours and such Malabar Farm -- home of author Louis Bromfield, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart got married here. The farm is lovely, the house is preserved & open for tours: http://cleveland.about.com/od/ohiostateparks/p/malabarfarm.htm That's what I can think of off the top of my head, if I think of anything else I'll post again.
  6. I just made a pan of Core brownies using pureed black beans instead of the applesauce & eggs. They were pretty good, and the beans make them a good source of resistant starch. I also ordered some Hi-Maize for adding to smoothies and pudding. I am diabetic (type II) and I'm interested to see if upping my intake of rs significantly will have any impact on my post-meal blood glucose. And of course I would not mind seeing a boost in fat loss as well!
  7. The raspberry green tea flavor is good fizzy. One thing I discovered is, if you add the powder to canned seltzer, add it slowly. It made a rather impressive volcano all over my desk when I dumped half of the single-serve packet into the can.
  8. Funny... I am doing the exact opposite. I eat very few carbs during the day (basically, the only carbs I eat during the day are fruit with breakfast.) Then I have rice or potatoes or whatever with with my evening meal. I am also losing very well using that strategy.
  9. Quick, easy and tasty: Drizzle with lime juice, spray with ICBINB butter spray, and microwave til fish is flaky. I always have to rearrange the fish in the pan halfway through so it cooks evenly.

    WW Cheese

    Anybody know if the cheese slices are fat free? I brought some to work for a snack but don't have the package handy. I thought the cheese slice was really good. Much better than I expected, the texture and taste both were pretty close to regular slices. I can't wait to try it in a grilled cheese sandwich! ETA: I answered my own question. I looked at the package at lunch and the slices are not fat free. They have 2.5 grams of fat per slice and are one point according to the package. Not Core, but very much worth a point if you have a taste for cheese.
  11. This really is quick... takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. The flavors complement each other nicely, and it's pretty with all the deep colors. Quick Black Bean, Broccoli & Sweet Potato Stew 3 cans black beans 1 16 oz. jar salsa 1 bag of frozen broccoli 2 large sweet potatoes Scrub sweet potatoes, pierce with fork and bake in microwave for about 7 minutes, til tender but not mushy. Steam broccoli in a saucepan until tender. Remove from heat and set aside. While potatoes and broccoli are cooking, pour black beans into a soup pot including the juice from the can. Add the jar of salsa & mix. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for several minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat when thoroughly heated through and keep warm. When sweet potatoes are done, carefully cut in half lengthwise and allow them to cool off enough to handle. Slice halves in half again lengthwise, then use a spoon to “slice” bite-size chunks of potato, scraping each chunk off the peel. Add sweet potato chunks and steamed broccoli to beans and mix well.
  12. I just made this tonight and it was soooo good! I added about a cup of finely chopped fresh mushrooms, a diced hard-cooked egg and a can of water chestnuts. Delicious! I think this would also be good with some cooked frozen peas added in the last couple of minutes.
  13. Monday was the fourth time I've gone back to this particular meeting and wound up with a leader I had not met before. When I very sheepishly admitted during orientation that I'd been on WW multiple times, she told me she holds the world record for most times joined. LOL
  14. This sounds really good. Pizza is one of the things I miss most when I'm trying to eat healthy. I will definitely be giving this one a try!
  15. I threw a bunch of random stuff in the crockpot yesterday morning and came up with something so good I had to share. My picky daughter and her boyfriend even loved it! 1 packaged pork tenderloin (don't use a marinated one, from what I can tell only the plain kind is Core) 1 29 oz. can pinto beans 1 29 oz. can black beans 1 29 oz. can diced tomatoes 1 sm. can green chiles 1 15 oz. can chicken broth 2 T. minced garlic Just throw it all in the crockpot and cook on low all day. Before serving, take a spatula or a couple of forks and shred the pork right in the pot. Stir it around and you have a slightly soupy mixture of beans and pork that is wonderful served over rice. It would also make a nice filling for a burrito if you drain off some of the juice with a slotted spoon.
