New Food Ideas!

I LOVE when people share "food finds"! Tonight at Weight Watchers some different people shared some things that I want to try at some point. I don't know the exact info about them right now, but here's what I do know:

1. At Trader Joe's and Fresh and Easy you can buy a Brownie mix that you make with yogurt and they're 2 points for 1/12 of the pan. The people say they're pretty good!

2. There are some single serving veggies that are in the freezer section and they have a cheesy sauce on them for 0 points. For 2 servings it would be 1 point. I'm not SURE I'll like them, but if I do, I think it will be something good to add in with my lunch.

3. Uncle Ben's brown rice. It's 1 C. and you only have to microwave it for 1 minute and the points are quite low. I just don't remember what the points are. Again, this is something I think would be handy to have around for when I'm at a loss for ideas. I'm thinking I would like to do a little rice bowl with some chicken and beans and salsa, kinda like a rice bowl I've gotten at El Pol lo Loco. Just a though, but haven't finalized the thought yet :)

4. Fresh and Easy has some honey pretzel twists that several different people said are really good. They mentioned that the pretzels are a good size (they were showing 3 inches tall and said it's kinda thick) and you get 10 of them for something like 1 point (possibly 2 points, I can't remember exactly). If you have the munchies they would definitely do the trick!

Ok, so I shared some ideas, now somebody share something with ME!!!! :) I don't care if I don't know you, I would just like some help here people :) I like variety and good ideas! Thanks in advance! :)

OOh!!! that chicken and beans rice bowl sounds like a really good idea. I bet the points could be pretty low too.

It's Alisa! I have 2 things I love and work great for WW. Laughing cow cheese. I'm not sure if you have mentioned these before but I love them one so many things. They come in a little triangles that are in a circle cardboard container. They are usually by the packaged meat by the deli. Well at walmart they are. Anyways one triangle is 1 pt and I put it on celery, my 1 pt bagels, sandwiches, and crackers. I seriously couldn't live without it.

the other thing is pumpkin muffins. THese are so good especially with Fall coming. These muffins are 2 pts and you can make them 1 pt if you put a fiber cereal in them. the 2 pt recipe is

1 box of spice cake mix
1 can of pumpkin
1 cup of water.

Mix all ingreidents together. should make 24 muffins. Bake at 350 for 20- 25 min.
