  1. Wow, I haven't been here in years and I'm shocked that I remembered my login!

  3. Becky - Yeah I found a few bottles there, but I figured that the Americans wouldn't know what Winners was! lol There's also a low-carb store in Toronto that sells Davinci too!
  4. Davinci is a popular sf syrup in the states, unfortunately I dont' have easy access to it!! lol It's syrup that coffee shops use in their lattes etc, just make sure it's sf! You could also likely use just water and a bit of splenda, it's just needed to make the apples a bit soft.
  5. RECIPE IN PROGRESS:bcb_happy Okay buddies.. I made something aaaaaaabsolutely fabulous today and I thought I'd share. It was orginally a recipe for babies, but I made a few changes to make it sifi! Orginal recipe: APPLE BREAKFAST BARS 1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 cup orange juice (I use apple juice) 1 1/2 cups raw apples, shredded Combine all ingredients. Let stand 10 minutes. Press mixture into 8" x 8" baking dish. Bake at 375? until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Loosen with spatula, and cut into bars while warm. Serve hot for breakfast or snack **Freezes Well** My changes WILDLY DELICIOUS APPLE PIE BARS Bottom: 1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats 2 Tablespoons cornmeal 2T splenda 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1 1/2 cups raw apples, shredded 1/2 c water Filling: 3 apples peeled, quartered and sliced thinly 1/3c sf syrup 1/3c + water cinnamon Combine all "bottom" ingredients. Let stand 10 minutes. Reserve 3/4c of the mixture and press the rest of the mixture into 8" x 8" baking dish. Bake at 400 until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. While bottom is baking, saute apples with syrup, water and cinnamon in a non-stick pan. Cook until soft, about 10m on low. Layer the baked apple slices onto the oat mixture and sprinkle the reserved 3/4c of oat mixture over the top of the apples. Bake an additional 10-15m. Loosen with spatula, and cut into bars while warm. ***Certainly a delicious dessert/snack. It cuts well and actually tastes like a "badforyou" dessert! Easy to slice into bars and freeze for single servings. I will definately be playing around with this some more to figure out if I can make it even better! Hope you try it out and enjoy it as much as I have!
  6. I don't know why I'm feeling so defensive of the poor baby nutrio. Maybe I just feel for him.. bigbrother Cheerio gets all the attention. Doesn't really matter either way.. I haven't had them as a sifi food. But I thought the criteria for cereals was - All whole-grain cold cereals without added sugar, dried fruit or nuts. When I looked up the ingredients on Fiber1 the third ingredient was graham flour. Does that mean that F1 isn't a sifi food? Of course not. So I guess I'm just confused as to why the flour in the nutrios is even an issue. I know that sometimes things dont' make sense, and it's just the way it is because WW says so. Food for thought.
  7. Yeah, I know.. Cheerios aren't core/sifi. BUT I think I've found an alternative that fits the criteria! My dd is now eating real food which is really exciting! We often eat the same foods all day long! Oatmeal/eggs for breakfast, grains/lentils/veggies at lunch, snacks of fruit throughout the day and protein, grains and veggies for dinner! I picked up some baby cereal for her so that I can keep a small container handy while we're out. It's made by Heinz, and its' called "Nutrios". They're a ring-like cereal with no added sugar or salt!! I tried to google for ingredients last night but couldn't find a link that contained them. Here's straight from the package though : "Ingredients: Whole grain oats, corn flour, calcium carbonate, tricalcium phosphate, annatto, iron, vitamins." Yes? or No??
  8. My newest core discovery is QUARK. I found it in the yogurt section, and although i'm not totally sure what to do with it.. i've read online that it's a good cream cheese substitute! Infact I found a few cheesecake recipes that just call for it! Might be worth a shot!
  9. MMMMMMMMMMM I haven't tried the recipe in a breadmaker, but I made it into tiny buns!! Perfect to make some delicious tunamelts with ff mayo and soycheese!! Hope you enjoy the bread!
  10. Wow!! That's great.. i'm glad to hear that you're doing so well! Fruit is a great "packalong" when you're out and about!
  11. aaaaaaah okay as a dip. I read a menu of yours that had grapefruit and quark and I just couldn't figure it out!! lol Guess I'll have to get digging for some ideas! Thanks!
  12. So I bought some on the weekend because I've seen it on your menus.. I googled some recipes and it seems that it's used in place of cream cheese or sourcream. I mixed some with tuna to make some tuna melts the other night.. it was good and creamy! Please tell me your favourite ways to eat it!!
