  1. I have also tried the strawberry one now, and that is probaby my second favorite after the new caramel one. Yummy!
  2. I bought these at my SuperTarget the other day and I just tried one this morning.... YUMMY! They have a new strawberry one as well, which I haven't tried, but as of yet Fiber One hasn't led me astray with their bars, they have all been delicious!
  3. I also saw this thread a bit too late, but I found the information others have posted here interesting, so here is my usual plan of attack for Olive Garden.... soup, salad, and breadsticks! Their minestrone soup is 3 pts per bowl, I'm not sure about the light italian dressing but I get it on the side and dip, and a breadstick is 2 points. Everything is refillable, so I tend to do more salad (which is ok since I don't like a lot of dressing on my salads). I usually say I've eaten 8 points if I have one bowl of soup and one breadstick with the salad. Yummy!
  4. I found the pumpkin butter in the baking aisle next to the sweet bread mixes. It has also been on endcaps on a few occasions.
  5. Today I went to Trader Joe's and noticed that they have their seasonal pumpkin items throughout the store. I decided to buy their pumpkin butter, and it is excellent! It is 40 calories for a tablespoon, but I used about a teaspoon on a pumpkin fritter and it was more than enough flavor! Enjoy!
  6. My success at staying OP is directly related to planning out what I am going to eat. I notice that on days that I don't have a plan I tend to make bad decisions. When I plan what I am going to eat I make sure that I am flexible, so if I planned to eat a granola bar that was 2 points but am not in the mood when the time comes, I can exchange it with something else that is 2 points (like a 100 cal pack of popcorn). It works for me.
  7. I have made it, and if you like pumpkin it was really good. I might reduce the amount of spices next time, though. Also, I think it would make a great plain cheesecake if you omitted the pumpkin mixture ingredients. It would be nice with some fresh fruit mixed in or on top when you serve it.
  8. Pumpkin Cheesecake Ingredients 12 Keebler reduced fat cinnamon graham cracker rectangles (3 full sheets), crushed 2 cups Splenda 3 (8 oz) packages fat free cream cheese 3 Tbsp. flour 2 large eggs 1 cup Eggbeaters 1 15 oz. can pure pumpkin 1/4 tsp ground cloves 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon nonstick cooking spray Directions Preheat oven to 500 degrees. 1. Spray a 9 inch spring form pan or pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers evenly over the bottom of the pan. 2. Beat cream cheese, splenda, and flour until smooth. Add 1 egg and egg substitute a little at a time and beat until creamy. Set aside 2 1/2 cups in a separate bowl. 3. Mix pumpkin, egg, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon into the remaining filling. 4. Pour half of the pumpkin filling over the graham crackers, then pour half of the plain filling, and repeat until you have two layers of each. 5. Swirl the cheese mixtures gently with a spoon, being careful not to scrape the graham crackers. 6. Bake for 10 minutes, reduce temperature to 200 degrees, and bake for 30 minutes. 7. Tent with aluminum foil and continue baking for 1 hour or until center appears nearly set when shaken. 8. Cool on a rack for 30 minutes, then chill in a refrigerator at least 6 hours. 9. Serve with fat free rediwhip if desired. Makes 8 or 10 servings 8 servings = 4 WW points per serving 10 servings = 3 WW points per serving NI for 10 servings: 156.9 cal, 2.2g fat, 1.7g fiber
  9. I have never seen this mentioned, and since I have one on my food agenda today I thought I would mention them. Trader Joe's has a frozen fruit bar called fruit floes. They come in caribbean, strawberry, and lime flavors. They are GRRRRREAT! They are a nice size, have a wonderful flavor, and are only 1 point a piece! Plus, they have huge chunks of fruit in them, which is wonderful. Anyhow, try them next time you go, they are definitely worth a point!
  10. I have also calculated this as 4 points per slice, and that was with the lowest calorie cake mix I could find! It is definitely worth it, though!
  11. I made peanut butter popcorn tonight by airpopping two tablespoons of popcorn, spraying with one second of cooking spray, and sprinkling with 1 packet of splenda and 1 Tbsp. of PB2... it was DELICIOUS!! I also use it in smoothies, which is great!
  12. Jen's Favorite Banana Pancakes After a lot of tinkering with my pancake recipe I have finally found perfection! This is a delicious pancake recipe, and the pancakes are a nice size. Only 1 WW point a piece! Ingredients 1/2 cup heart healthy bisquick 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup bananas, mashed (2 bananas) 3 egg whites 1 cup eight continent light vanilla soymilk 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups water (to desired consistency) 1 Tbsp. baking powder 1 Tbsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. nutmeg 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice Directions 1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together, then add the wet ingredients. Mix well. 2. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and cook the pancakes, measuring out 1/4 cup servings per pancake. Squish the pancake down some when you flip, it makes it appear bigger! 3. Serve! Makes 16 pancakes 1 pancake per serving 1 WW point per serving Each pancake has 73.6 calories, 0.6g of fat, and 2g of fiber!
  13. My boss at work has gestational diabetes and has to go easy on the carbs. We work right next to an Oberweis, which I avoid like the plague because it is too tempting. Anyhow, she was looking up the NI on some of the products and found a fruit smoothie that was low in carbs. She asked me to check out the information to tell her how healthy it was. Well.... for a 16 oz smoothie it ended up being 2 points! (130 cal, 0 fat, 4 fiber). OMG, was it delicious! And it is a huge serving! This will definitely be a nice treat once in awhile, although not often because it is rather expensive for my budget. Try one if you like raspberries, but be careful if you need to watch out for seeds, because there are quite a few in the drink!
  14. Hi everyone. Last week Jewel was having a sale on Walden Farms calorie free caramel dip, so I got some. Wow, it is actually pretty good! I use it to dip my apples in, and besides a very slight aftertaste I actually like it a lot. I am glad I found this, because I like to dip my apples, and peanut butter just doesn't stretch like caramel does. Enjoy!
  15. Hmmm, I think it might be different amounts depending on the flavor you get. I calculated the NI on the back of the caramel swirl package and it comes out to 1 point. I'll have to look at the website and see if there is a discrepency.
