  1. I was doing just great on ww, but on the 4th i went off program at a bar-b-que. I had a hot dog, a hamburger, chips, and a slice of cheese cake. I immediately started anew the next day, but my hunger levels have sky rocketed! My daily points allowance isn't filling me anymore! I used to be able to eat 2 or 3 points less then my alotted everyday, now i find I go over 2 points a day. What can i do to reverse this probllem? I was doing so good, and i'm really sad that i messed up like this!:bcb_huh:
  2. One for me that wasn't mentioned yet are pickles! All pickles but the sweet are very low points, and filling, and have taste!
  3. Saw theses advertised in a WW magazine and picked them up at my local Wegmans. They are so delicious! 20 chips for 2 points, and they taste like real chips! They come in 3 flavors (lightly salted, barbecue, and cheddar), so yummy, I eat them everyday!
  4. I like the strawberry, but the cups are tiny. WW is the the same amount of points and you get 2 more onces of yogurt.
  5. If anyone can share any home made applesauce recipes, I would greatly appreciate it Thanks in advance!
  6. I've never actually bought French's Fried Onions,so I don't know the nutritional value of them, but their recipe for crunchy onion chicken sounds really good. Are the fried onions bad for you? tia
  7. I just started back op again, after all the dieting affected my breast milk supply (which wasn't up to par to begin with, but anyway...). My second day OP someone brings home made "monkey bread" in to work, and of course, I had a piece. My problem is, people always bring the most delicious looking, home made goodies in to work , all the time. And if it's not staff bringing food in, it's the patients families (I'm a nurse). I need some tips to resist, even though everyone around me mmms and ahhhs over this delicious food.
  8. They are 2 points, but a delicious 2 points! I have tried the mixed berry, and apple cinnamon, both so good! I like them any time of the day. With tea at breakfast, or as a dessert after lunch or dinner. I hope these stick around, YUM!
  9. I tried this recipe last week and it was delicious! The serving size is big and filling. I bought the ingredients again this week, can't wait to make it again!
  10. I found this on the Cooking Light website, and made it tonight. It was pretty good. DH didn't complain, and I made baked zucchini sticks with the left over zucchini. I used Kraft free cheese, and one 15 oz can of tomatoe sauce instead of two 8 oz.'s. Also brown rice is always better then white. I'm not sure which type of rice the recipe is calculated for, but I charged myself 7 points for the serving size suggested. Charlie's Beef-and-Zucchini Dish 1 pound extra-lean ground beef Cooking spray 3 cups diced zucchini (about 3 small) 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning 2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, divided 2 1/2 cups hot cooked rice Preparation Cook beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned; stir to crumble. Drain well. Wipe pan with paper towel. Coat with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add beef, seasoning, and sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 2/3 cup cheese; stir until cheese melts. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese. Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1 cup beef mixture, 1/2 cup rice, and about 1 tablespoon cheese) Nutritional Information CALORIES 355(26% from fat); FAT 10.3g (sat 4.6g,mono 3.6g,poly 0.5g); PROTEIN 30.3g; CHOLESTEROL 71mg; CALCIUM 250mg; SODIUM 759mg; FIBER 2.4g; IRON 4.2mg; CARBOHYDRATE 35.2g
  11. I found the Frigo light string cheese at Wal-Mart. It's cheaper then the WW, and I noticed there is 1 oz in each stick, and the WW ones are a little less then an oz per stick. I'll be buying these from now on, they taste just as good as the WW's.
  12. Go this off the back of a Keebler reduced fat graham cracker crust I bought to make a lemon pie. I also don't know the points because I don't have all the ingredients on hand, but I can't imagine it being more then 2 or 3 points a slice, especially if you are using the WW key lime pie yogurt. 1/4 C water 1 package (4-serving size) sugar-free lime-flavor gelatin 2 containers (6 oz) fat-free key lime pie yogurt 1 tub (8 oz) frozen reduced-fat non-dairy whipped topping, thawed 1 reduced fat graham cracker pie crust 1) In microwave safe measuring cup heat water on high for 45 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes or until boiling. Whisk in gelatin until dissolved. 2) In large bowl whisk together gelatin mixture and yogurt. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread in crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set. 3) Garnish as desired, store in refrigerator. 8 servings
  13. 1/2 C brown rice 1/2 tsp salt 1/8 - 1/4 tsp pepper 1/4 C chives 1 large tomatoe diced 1 tbsp olive oil Yum, Yum!
  14. I don't have the money to sign up for WW e tools right now, and have a couple recipes I need to know points for. Are there any free websites to calculate nutrition info for recipes?
