  1. Thanks so much! I feel better about using the 100cal = 1AP. I'm having a hard time believing the amount of calories I burn but I work hard when I work out so it's definitely possible.
  2. I love to use the time to experiment with low point recipes. Make some meals for the rest of the week or make a time consuming WW friendly recipe. I also agree with Shelly on sipping tea, and add in munching on popcorn and watching a good movie. Definitely earn some APs playing in the snow. Putting away Christmas Decorations or getting some other big project out of the way is good too. Since I gogogogogo all the time, I like to do nothing. :-)
  3. I have a question about calculating activity points. I always have a problem knowing whether I have done moderate or intense exercise. I know I should use the talk test and all of that but I don't usually remember to pay close attention to that through my exercise, especially through weight training when some of the time I am breathing really heavy and some of the time I am not or through interval training. Is there a way I can accurately calculate APs using my heart rate monitor and the more exact information it provides? Thanks for any help!
  4. No, you are right, this post was started before pointsplus, they used to be 1 point.
  5. Have eaten PB2 for years and never thought of that!! Awesome!
  6. But if you have 2 jiggers of vodka it's 7 points! ;-)
  7. Ingredients: 1lb 99% ff ground turkey 1 cup RF mexican cheese 1 packet cheesey taco seasoning 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1/4 cup eggbeaters water as needed Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease pan(s) (I used 4 mini loaf pans to yield 6pp each.) Combine all ingredients leaving 1/2 cup of cheese aside. Add water as needed. If using mini loaf pans scoop 1/3 cup of mixture in each pan and flatten then sprinkle about 1 TBLS of cheese onto each. Split reminaing mixture into each pan and spread to cover cheese. Bake about 20 minutes. Notes: I like a lot of flavor so next time i will probably also use a packet of regular taco seasoning to give it more of a kick. This wasn't very taco-y but was deliciously cheesey!
  8. I just wanted to bump this recipe because I love it and I am making it for St. Patrick's Day dinner with the fam!
  9. Bump... I've been making this for years and will make it for New Years Day brunch. It's amazing.
  10. Bump! Really good with the peanut chips!
  11. YUM! I made several adjustments which I noted below. Broccoli Chicken Divan Servings: 6 Points/Serving: 3 Ingredients 1 pound chopped fresh broccoli (I used 2lbs, but would suggest 1.5) 1 1/2 cups cubed, cooked chicken meat (1 breast?) (I used two 12oz cans of chicken) 10.75 oz Campbell's 98% Fat Free Cream of Broccoli Soup (I used 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cheddar cheese soup) 1/3 cup skim milk (2/3cup) 1/2 cup shredded fat free Cheddar cheese 1 tablespoon Blue Bonnet Light Vegetable Oil Spread, melted (I used ICBINB spray) 2 tablespoons Great Value Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs (1/4 cup) (2 Tablespoons garlic) Directions 1. Preheat oven to 450 F. 2. Place the broccoli in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain. 3. Place the cooked broccoli in a 9 inch pie plate (I used a 9x13 pan). Top with the chicken. In a bowl, mix the soup and milk, garlic and pour over the chicken. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Mix the melted butter with the bread crumbs, and sprinkle over the cheese. 4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until bubbly and lightly brown. My total is 23 points. 6 HUGE servings for 4 points each. AMAZING! (I put it over small baked potato as well.)
  12. Welcome! I post in T20's I'm nearing 28, and others can't pull themselves away after 30....No such thing as too old!!!! Post away!
  13. Hi Di, I'm not a planner. I like to form my meals as I go. However, on the weekends I tend to make up batches of yummy OP foods so I can just grab them through the week. I'm on core now, but even on flex, things like puddings, muesli, corenbread, pumpkin cookies, baked oatmeal, hardboiled eggs, are all things that are nice to have in the fridge through the week. Try different things to see whats doable for you.
  14. This sounds great! How much ricotta did you use? I was thinking you could add or top with garlic and ff mozzarella cheese. Mmmmmm!
  15. I am eating these as I type and they are AMAZING!! THANKS!
