Finally got back to a meeting today. The topic was basically everyone brought in packages from their favorite WW friendly foods. I was a little disappointed in that it seemed like a lot of junk. Granted the foods were low in points but also seemed low in nutrition. Of course that is me talking from the perspective of being on Core. When I was doing Flex I was guilty of saving points so I could have treats. Anyway here are some of the suggestions that people gave. You'll have to check points, I didn't get them all written down.
Fiber 1 cereal (original flavor) 1/2 cup is 0 pts. Good in yogurt and also as a cereal alone or with other cereals.
Thomas Brand English muffins-light, Hearty Grain with double fiber Honey Wheat muffins, bagels (with WW cream cheese)
Eggo Nutrigrain Blueberry Waffles 2 for 3pts
Bocca Suasage links 2 for 1 pt
Hebrew National 97% FF beef hot dogs (much better than the FF ones)
Laughing cow and Babybel cheeses
94% FF popcorn
Lesser Evil brand kettle corn, fries (in Natural Foods section)
Fiber 1 bars.
These are the ones I wrote down. And that's what our whole meeting was
Those are interesting choices. I don't believe I saw
any of my picks. :)
Even with Flex, I have to be sure I make good choices
and restrict points for treats to a minimum. If I
don't, I find I get really hungry too soon.
I like some of these things, but I try to use less prepackaged foods too. I like...
LF Nutrigrain waffles
WW ice cream
FF Reddi Whip
Lite Wheat Bread
Thomas english muffins
Flat Out wraps
Tyson seasoned chicken breasts
Promise FF spread
Smuckers SF jam
That's all I can think of in terms of prepackaged stuff. Anyone else?
For English muffins, hotdog buns, and hamburger buns I buy Healthy Life brand. They are only 1 point and very good. I usually eat the English muffins with laughing cow cheese spread. I have never bought the Thomas brand English muffin. How many points is it?
For breakfast, I like to eat the Kashi original cereal. With 3/4 cup and 1/2 cup milk, it is only 1 point. Sometimes I slice a banana in it or sometimes I mix it up with 1/2 cup of Fiber One cereal. Of course, I have to count the points for the banana, but the Fiber One adds 0 points.
