Finding New Snacks

Posted by 9 years ago 38 Comments 2515 views

I’m a nighttime snacker. It’s a habit. I enjoy it. I don’t want to give it up. I routinely eat something between 11 and midnight daily. I always have, even while losing. Generally I keep the snacks light. Fruit, Popcorn, light ice cream treats, soy crisps and salsa or crackers with some laughing cow cheese. […]

Food Find: Function-Light Weigh

Posted by 9 years ago 12 Comments 3512 views

It’s been FOREVER since posting a Food Find. For those that are newer readers, Food Finds are products I spy at my local grocery store that I feel the need to pass on. These aren’t to be confused Product Reviews which are sent to me for the explicit purpose of reviewing. I’m not sure why, […]

Quaker Multigrain Cakes – Cinnamon Toast

Posted by 9 years ago 24 Comments 3012 views

This is more of a food re-find. I started buying these back a few years ago and have been meaning to post about them every since! I forgot about them (not all stores carry them) for a bit until coming across them again last weekend. These are one of my favorite Quaker Products. They aren’t […]

Sunsweet PRUNES! aka Dried Plums

Posted by 9 years ago 62 Comments 6006 views

Do you eat them? I’m going to be honest, I’ve NEVER had one until a few days ago. I don’t know what possessed me to pick them up from the grocery store (oh yea, I was hungry) but I did. I picked up a package of Sunsweet 60 Calorie Pack Pitted Prunes and Dark chocolate […]

While grabbing my whole wheat english muffins at the store yesterday, these gems caught my eye. I never saw them before and when I picked them up I knew I had to buy them. They were soft, big, 100% whole grain and 1 point!! So I ditched the english muffins (for the week) and decide […]

Joseph’s Middle East Bakery Lavash Bread

Posted by 9 years ago 37 Comments 3613 views

I found this bread a few days ago at my local BJ’s. I never heard of Lavash bread but it looked good, like a huge rectangle of flat bread (similar to flat out). Glancing at the nutritional information reveals it’s only 50 calories a serving! With 2g of fat and 3g of fiber. Now don’t […]

LightFull Satiety Smoothie Chocolate

Posted by 9 years ago 5 Comments 1144 views

Shopping the other day I was thirsty and hungry, NOT a good combination at the grocery store. While perusing the dairy section I saw a shelf full of these yellow smoothie bottles. Normally I’m very hesitant with smoothie products. They are usually a waste of calories that I’d rather use on real, "chewed" food. But […]

1 Point Tortillas – They DO exist!!

Posted by 9 years ago 23 Comments 4952 views

Awhile back I posted a list of 1 point tortillas that I found and I’ve been meaning to update it now for over a year. A YEAR! Well, I finally got my act together. Now this list is not a list of the only tortillas I use. Frankly, I’m a tortilla fanatic and anytime a […]

StarKist Tuna Fillets

Posted by 9 years ago 7 Comments 1343 views

Having a coupon, I bought a package of Starkist Light Meat Tuna Fillets months ago. Investigating it at the grocery store I discovered 1 package was 1 serving weighing it at only 2 points. So I picked up a few packs thinking they’d make a nice quick diner when I didn’t feel like cooking. So […]

Muchas Gracias Taco Bell!

Posted by 9 years ago 11 Comments 1494 views

Just by chance the other day the husband wanted to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch. I told you all, fast food junky, right? Anyway, I said sure and crossed my fingers that I’d have the strength to get something not dripping in fast food fried grease. The KFC we decided to hit was […]
