  1. Thanks everyone. The support here has always been great! I just need to remember to rely on it!
  2. Hi everyone. I've been here before. I start well and then seem to lose my momentum. I've been going through a tough time lately and am an emotional eater, so....well, you know the drill. I'm starting new again and feel like this time it has to happen. I'm looking forward to all your support and the opportunity to support you! Thanks! Cheryl:bcb_march
  3. The box gives the following: Serv. size: 1/3 cup as pkgd or 1 cup prepared. Servings Per Container: about 5 Calories: 160 as pkgd 340 prepared Total Fat: 2 g Fiber: 1 g This would give it a point value of 7 for 1 cup prepared Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper.
  4. Jamie111: Stevia can be bitter--remember, it is an herb, not a sugar. However, used right (and refined right) it can be a great sweetener. It may not be the most appropriate to use in all dishes. I'd check with the health food store and also look at their cookbook section to see if they have any info on stevia. The internet is a great source of info also. I used stevia quite a bit one time when I was trying to help my diabetic husband with his diabetes. It came in individual packets just like splenda. What he didn't like about it was that it didn't dissolve the same as spenda, etc. It's certainly worth a try!
  5. That sounds great! I had a turkey dog the other day with lots of saurkraut. It was great! The dog itself could have used some more flavor and I didn't put it on a bun but it was great to be able to eat the saurkraut!!!!
  6. I made the Chimichangas tonight for supper. I used whole wheat tortillas and fixed them just as the recipe said. They were great! I loved how they crisped up in the over! I thought about letting some ff cheese melt over top, but didn't. I think that would be good. It was still 6 points and I topped it with lettuce too. It was quite filling! I actually made two extra and will try taking them to work for lunch--I'll see if they reheat okay. Probably won't have the crispness though.
  7. I made the crockpot granola yesterday. You DO have to follow instructions and not add any dried fruit until the last hour or it can burn. (Found out the hard way!). I added some dried cranberries and some raisins--not much, but enough to give it some pop! I also found some sugar free honey (I know...sounded odd to me too, but it says no calories and no fat or sugars). It worked great! I add it to a little SF/FF vanilla yogurt. Great! I figure it costs me about 2 points for the two of them. I used Dannon Fit 'n Lively yogurt and 1/4 c. of granola. Somebody correct me if this is wrong! Thanks!
  8. Great suggestions! I'm going to try them! Breakfast is very important to me! I get up at 4 a.m. and go to the gym at 5:45 a.m. Then I have to be at work at 6:30 a.m. (the gym's in the same building where I work!). Anyway, I don't go to lunch until 11:30 a.m. and since breakfast is usually at 4-4:30, it has to be substantial enough to last!
  9. I'm wondering how you fix the egg white? I'd like to try this. Thanks!
