Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things TC enjoys eating that are good for my diet
  1. Weight Watchers Bread-- I am loving having bread to eat that is high in fibre that does not eat up bunches and bunches of points
  2. Sugar Free/Fat Free yogurt--I love that this is a creamy yummy snack that is only one point for a serving. I have some great flavors including a chocolate cherry and strawberry vanilla that are wonderful.
  3. Low Fat Granola Bars--I have a thing for chocolate, and the little chocolate chips in these along with a cup of coffee are a nice treat for me.
  4. Egg Beaters/Egg Whites--I add a little salsa or onions and it is great. I love having a good breakfast, getting a good start on the day and not using up a lot of points to do that.
  5. Low Fat Cheese--I love cheese, having a little low fat cheese makes some meals seem so much more of a treat. (I can't wait to get a set of kitchen scales so I can more accurately judge my points)
  6. Chicken Breasts--I buy a box of boneless, skinless, chicken breasts and that serves as about half of my meals. I love that it is so easy and quick. I just put it in the oven with veggies, salsa, tomatoes, or just some seasoning and I have a yummy supper.
  7. Veggie Ground Round--I just tried this last night. OMG! It was so good, I made a simple chili out of it and it was wonderful. This is definitely a product I will be adding to my rotation.
  8. Veggie burgers--I love having a burger I can have when Prince Charming and the Little princess are having hamburgers. Quick and yummy.
  9. Veggie or Low Fat Frankfurters--Like burgers it is nice to have a low points alternative. I really like the low fat ones with salsa. YUMMY!
  10. Fruit Cups--I have orange sections in fruit cups. I really enjoy them as a quick, handy snack.
  11. Smart Pop Popcorn--I love that this a treat I can sit and watch television mindlessly muching on enjoying a great movie with Prince Charming and it is only 2 points for the whole bag!
  12. Frozen Veggies--I have some veggies frozen that are either 0 points or low points. I like using them in place of starchy alternatives. So I have chicken with veggies instead of chicken with potatoes, pasta, fries, or rice.
  13. Salsa--I have been using a lot of salsa lately. I cook my chicken with it, I put it in my egg beaters and I eat my low fat frankfurters in it. It is a yummy way to add a lot of flavor.

Have just started dieting and can heartily recommend Ryvita and low fat pate as a nice lunch. I had breakfast and lunch yesterday for about 350 calories, allowing me a naughty flapjack later in the day.

Happy Thursday

I should probably take a page from your book and try the veggie ground round. We did switch to ground Turkey for everything and get Turkey bacon and sausage now though. One reason I like it is the texture.

I don't think I have ever tried veggie ground round.

Great list! Happy TT!

Never heard of Veggie ground round. Hmm....I'm taking notes here.

Stacy said...

These are all good snacks... I try the buy the low-fat hot dogs as well, and we've been doing turkey burgers instead of meat burgers. We also switched to turkey bacon. Not sure if it's all that much better for you, but I think it is and we are trying :)

Congrats, you're doing great I bet :)

Have a wonderful day!

ohh I'll have to pass this on to my hubby. He's always looking for new food ideas to stay fit! congrats on such wonderful weight loss

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
