  1. This makes for a yummy way to get your water in. I bought a $10 electric juicer from Walmart (Hamilton Beach I think) which makes this job a snap. Juice of 1 lemon (I usually juice 12 or so lemons at a time) 4 packets splenda 32 oz. water ice It's a light version of homemade lemonade. Lemons also are loaded with potassium and work as a natural diuretic!
  2. I made tacos for dinner last night and when I was at the grocery store yesterday, I came across the whole wheat tortillas posted above. They are just 2 points for about an 8-9" tortilla versus 3 points for the regular flour tortillas. They also have 5g of fiber! Using ground turkey, light sargento mexican cheese and light sour cream, I was able to have a big taco for 7 points! I also like to put a fried egg (in pam of course) in a tortilla with salsa and have that for breakfast. It's easy and low in points-just 4 if I use the whole wheat tortillas.
  3. You should calculate the points based on how long each tape is. The 1 mile, I believe is 20 minutes and the 2 mile is 30 minutes. I count it as brisk walking. I believe the 30 minutes is 3 AP points. Not sure on the 20 minute one but you can easily figure it out with your slider and/or online calculator for the WW online program. BTW-I love the WATP workouts!!
  4. Deb, I have used The Firm tapes for years and know lots of others who do as well. They are an awesome workout and they really work all parts of the body. They vary in level of difficulty/intensity but if you go on any website that sells exercise tapes and look them up, you will be able to see all the different workouts that the Firm offers. You will need a basic set of free weights and with some household items like a sturdy step stool and a chair, you can really burn those calories. Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone are also a great way to have fun and burn calories right in your own livingroom. Whatever you do, make sure you think you will enjoy them before you spend a lot of money on a ton of tapes or DVD's. Oh...and I think Tae Boe workouts stink. I have them and think they are silly!!
  5. Last night I ordered a roast beef 6" in a wrap and had them load it with veggies, no cheese. I went to website this morning and calculated it to be 3 points!!! :eek: With a bag of baked chips, the whole meal was 6 points-yippee!!
  6. I have just discovered Soup At Hand from Campbells (bought them for my kids lunch). The Tomato Classic and Chicken With Mini Noodles and/or Stars are 1 point for the can. They are made to pop in the microwave, heat and sip. For a snack, they are great as they really fill me up. There are lots of flavors, but many have more points-just read the label.
  7. This is a great snack to make for the whole family. I made it for my 4th grader to take in for snack day. Ingredients 4 1/2 cup General Mills Wheat Chex 4 cups plain air-popped popcorn 1/4 cup reduced-calorie margarine 6 Tbsp packed light brown sugar 2 Tbsp light corn syrup 1/4 tsp vanilla extract Instructions Mix cereal and popcorn in a large microwave bowl and set aside. (Note: You may use a combination of Rice, Corn or mixed Chex, if desired.) Microwave margarine, sugar, corn syrup and vanilla in large bowl on high for 2 minutes, or until boiling. Make sure to stir after 1 minute. Pour margarine mixture over cereal mixture until evenly coated. Microwave for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring and scraping the sides of the bowl after every minute. Spread mixture on wax paper to cool, stirring occasionally to break it up. Store in an airtight container. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

  8. I made this recipe from a WW Crockpot Cookbook last week and it was so easy and delicious. The whole family loved it. 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. boneless pork top loin 1 c. chopped onion 1 c. diet soda 1 c. barbecue sauce Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook covered on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 5-6 hours or until meat is very tender. One hour before serving, take 2 forks and pull the pork apart. It should be very tender by this time and just fall apart as you separate. Cook for the remaining hour on low setting. Makes 8 servings-4 points per serving. Serve it on your favorite bun or roll.
  9. This is a WW GOLDEN SPOON AWARD RECIPE-it's easy and delicious. Made it last night and I used leftover cooked chicken. Ingredients 1/2 cup plum tomatoes, finely chopped 1/2 cup mango(es), finely chopped 1/4 cup red onion(s), finely chopped 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped 2 tsp canned jalapeno peppers, chopped, or more to taste 12 oz boneless chicken breast 1/4 tsp table salt 1/8 tsp ground red pepper 8 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s) 1 1/2 cup romaine lettuce, shredded 1/4 cup light sour cream Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F. For salsa, in a bowl combine tomatoes, mango, red onion, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, cilantro and jalapeno pepper. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. In a large, heavy skillet, place chicken and enough water to cover half the chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 12 to 14 minutes or until chicken is very tender. Drain well; let cool until easy to handle. Using two forks, shred chicken. Toss shredded chicken with remaining lime juice, salt and ground red pepper; set aside. Wrap tortillas in foil. Place in oven and heat for 10 minutes. To serve, spread shredded chicken down the center of each warm tortilla. Top each with 1/8 of the salsa, 3 tablespoons of lettuce and 1/2 tablespoon of sour cream. Roll up. Serve with the remaining salsa. If desired, garnish with additional cilantro. Yields 1 burrito per serving. Note: This Golden Spoon Award honoree was selected by our staff from the Community Recipe Swap.

  10. I made this last night for dinner and the whole family loved it. It was very easy to make and I baked a ham and carrots in balsamic vinagrette and a little brown sugar. Could put it all in the oven together. Unfortunately, the dog ate some of the potatoes this morning as my husband put the leftovers on the back porch!! I had enough left to bring to work for lunch and they smelled the whole office up wonderfully. Thank You for the great recipe-it will go in my favorites file
  11. This is a yummy dip that I've made lots of times. It always goes over great at parties and gatherings. I lightened up the recipe to bring the points down. You can serve it with WOW Tortilla Chips, Baked Tortilla Chips or make your own from corn tortillas (1 small corn tortilla is 1 point) 1 Can FF (fat-free) Refried Beans 1 Ripe avocado-mashed 1 c. light sour cream 1/2 c. light mayonaise 1 pkg. taco seasoning mix 1 bunch scallions, chopped finely 1/2 - 1 jar mild salsa 1/2 can olives chopped 3/4 c. light mexican shredded cheese Spread the beans in a thin layer on a large platter. Spread mashed avocado on top of the bean dip. Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and taco seasoning together and spread on top of the avocado layer. Layer chopped scallions, salsa and olives in this order. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Serve with above mentioned chips. This recipe makes quite a bit. For 1/2 c of the dip it works out to about 5 points.
  12. Laurie, from a fellow Central NY'er, WOW-this was great. I wanted to try this because my whole family loves Soba noodles-the kids too. I usually just make it with the japanese soup broth you can buy in concentrate form and chop up some scallions. This sounded so good so I made it last night. The tenderloin cut of meat made it so delicious. The one thing I did notice about the recipe is that it didn't say anything about cooking the meat before adding it for the 1 minute at the end. So, assuming it should've been cooked, I browned it in Pam 1st. Anyways, it was scrumptous. Thanks for sharing that with us.
  13. I made this last night for supper and it was wonderful. I'm having it for my lunch today as well. I had a bunch of squash to use up so I thought that this sounded really yummy and it was!! Starshine, I didn't have any butter buds in the cupboard so I gave it a few pumps of I Can't Believe It's not Butter (spray butter). I don't know if they have it there or not. I sprayed the top of the crackers topping as well and it worked great. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!!
