  1. Yes portobello mushroom tops and grilled on the bbq. Very juicy and delicious.
  2. I love Carnation's Light Hot Chocolate Mix, only 1 PP per packet on the new program.
  3. I found turkey pepperonin sticks at Costco yesterday, valued at 1 PP each. The package is huge and is only 11.99 CDN.
  4. I use this seasoning too. I found it at Costco in Canada. You are right it wonderful on eggs and chicken, but I add it to everything to pasta and chickpea salad. The cost was only around 4.00 for large container.
  5. I just made the simplified recipe of this and it was great. Thanks
  6. Hey buddies, I'm getting ready to get back into exercising, but I was wondering how much and what I should do? I have a gym membership and I have exercised in the past, but I'm 250lbs now and not the 135lbs I used to be. I used run 5km a day, but now I can barley run 2 mins. I know weight training is important, but I'm wondering about the cardio? Thanks
  7. In the FAQ section it mentions that some of the 2007 changes were overturned in 2008. Does anyone know which ones and how?
  8. Hey buddies, I am a former flexer, switching to Core this week. I found that I was always hungry on Flex and always ended up overeating. I'm a little nervous, I've been cooking all day. I go to school and stay at my sisters during the week so I make my food ahead. I've made Bourbon Chicken, Core Hummus, Rice and Lentil casserole, and Black Bean soup, most which I found the recipes for on this site. Wish me luck.

  11. These sound good. Sneaky Chef Breakfast Cookies Makes 16 to 18 large cookies Nutrition Highlights: whole grains, calcium, and protein. Rich in vitamins B and E, iron, potassium, folic acid, calcium, tryptophan, protein, and fiber. Ingredients: 2 cups whole grain cereal flakes (such as Wheaties or Total) 3/4 cup Flour Blend (equal parts whole wheat flour, white flour, and wheat germ) 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 large egg 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup canola oil 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 3/4 cup low-fat ricotta cheese Cinnamon sugar for dusting Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray with oil). 2. Using a rolling pin, gently crush the cereal (in a sealed plastic bag) into coarsely crushed flakes. Alternatively, you can quickly pulse the cereal in a food processor. 3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together Flour Blend, crushed cereal, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk together egg, sugar, oil, vanilla, and ricotta cheese. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Drop single tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, leaving about an inch between cookies. Flatten cookies with the back of a fork and then sprinkle tops generously with cinnamon sugar (or just sugar if your kids don't like the cinnamon flavor). Bake about 18 to 20 minutes, or until nicely browned and crispy around the edges. Cinnamon has been found to help stabilize blood-glucose levels, thereby preventing the usual "crash and burn" feeling we all get after eating sweets.
  12. Hi guys, I've started walking 4 km (3.2 miles) everyday. Is this enough exercise to encourage weight loss. Should I be doing something else too?

    Cool 1 point desert

    Hey guys, Has anyone considered freezing this ? I'm always looking for a substitute for my ice cream. I just made this and popped some into small containers and into the freezer. I'll let you know how it turns out. I made cherry and vanilla.
  17. Here's a rice seasoning mix I found on the net, I haven't used it yet. Homemade Rice Seasoning 3/4 c. chicken bouillon powder 1/2 c.
