A friend of mine recently started Weight Watchers and was asking for food suggestions on her blog http://pancakesandfrenchfries.com/2009/02/low-point-foods-that-helped-breakfast-lunch-dinner-dessert/
I gave her a pretty big list and it got me thinking; maybe there are others of you out there wondering what the heck I am eating. So whether you wanted to know or not here goes.
Crystal Light-I am not a big water fan so adding flavor without calories is perfect! There are generics out there and I am find them to be just as good.
Slim Fast High Protein Shake Mix-it's breakfast for me just about everyday. It's not grainy or chalky and tastes good.
tea-green tea will help speed up the metabolism and i need all the help I can get.
Weight Watcher frozen dessert/ice cream-currently eating their fudgsicles at only 60 calories a piece. Delicious.
Sugar free/fat free pudding mix or jello mix. I prefer to make my own, I think the texture is better than the prepackaged/refrigerated kind.
Fat free Cool Whip-A great ice cream substitute, delicious when defrosted and mixed with aforementioned jello and pudding.
Multigrain pasta-Not as grainy as wheat in my opinion. Generic is just as good for us.
Pepperidge Farm Bread-Light style 7 grain. It's small, thin and tasty.
Tuna Fish-one can is nearly 30g of protein, half of what I aim for each day. YUM!
Lettuce-Use it in salads or use large pieces (butter and bibb work best) to make wraps. I use lettuce wraps for tacos, fajitas, sandwiches....anything!
Almonds-packed with protein they fill you up and let you crunch.
Craisins-Yummy, chewy, fruit!
Wasabi peas-Find them in the Asian food section. They are crunchy and SPICY and oh so yummy. They have nearly as much protein as a serving of almonds with a lot less fat.
Morningstar Farms-Their hickory BBQ riblets and Ginger Teriyaki veggie cakes are surprisingly tasty to this skeptic. Thank you Susan for opening my eyes!
Reduced fat cheese sticks-cheese.....low fat....need I say more??
Laughing Cow Cheese wedges-My favorite flavor is French Onion....spread it on a cracker and YUMMO.
Newmans Own Dressing-Light Sundried Tomato and Light Balsamic Vinaigrette are quite good.
Campbells Select Harvest Light Soups-haven't found any I don't like yet.
Rice cakes-flavored ones are great substitutes for chips.
Fiber One Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal-new and delicious.
Fiber One granola bars-a great substitute for a candy bar.
Hmm.....I know there are more great products out there but that's all that's popped into my head for now. Any other ideas people??
