New foods I've discovered

I discovered some new "weight watcher friendly" foods that I thought I'd pass along.

Fiber One's a smaller container than other yogurts, but it's a ZERO point food! I use them in my smoothies every day, thus making my smoothie only 2 points instead of the 3 they used to be. (that leaves an extra point for another treat!).

I discoverd Crisps by accident! They are dehydrated fugi apples. Each package is 39 calories, with no fat and a few grams of fiber. It's another ZERO point snack! I like them because I throw one package in my purse if I'm going out for the day and might need a quick snack. I found them at Wal-mart in the same area as raisins and dried fruit.

Since I gave up drinking diet sodas, I've had to rely on flavored water because plain water is boring! I've done a lot of reading and supposedly green and white tea is good for you. I prefer the white tea as it doesn't have the 'tea aftertaste' that I get with the green tea. The raspberry and apple-cranberry white tea is very good. It only comes in the individual packets that are added to 16 oz of water.

I've been wanting to try this combination for a while and I did this weekend. One cake mix and 1 can of diet coke. I baked it in a 13x9" pan for the appropriate time indicated on the box, and the results were a super moist cake! I served it to my husband and he couldn't tell the difference! Next time I'm going to make cupcakes as that would make each serving 2 points and easier to figure out. There are so many different variations depending on the flavor of cake and soda.

This powdered peanut butter was given to me. It's called PB2. The directions call for 2 tbsps of powder for 1 tbsp of water...mix...and voila peanut butter. However, the taste is NASTY...blech...ewww...cough, choke...YUCK! I tried adding a little salt thinking maybe it needed it...but no. The consistency was like peanut butter, but the flavor was TERRIBLE! I don't recommnd this product.


  1. Great new snack ideas!! That's really interesting that the yogurt is 0 points! You're doing great!

  2. Is that Shelly's PNButter??? ROTFL!!! ICKY STINKY!!!!
