The Vidalia Onion recipe has a lot of butter. I didn't substitute anything for it but only ate small servings.

Now I'm having chili and a corn pone. For breakfast I've been making cream of wheat and putting in various fruits. Yesterday I put in fruit cocktail that has papaya in it.

Salmon patties--1 drained can of pink salmon mixed with one beaten egg, 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs and dill, cooked with little olive oil. Heart-healthy and extra calcium, delicious by itself, on a bed of greens and grains, or as a sandwich. And my cats love the salmon juice!

When we marinate and grill chicken, I always portion out the extra in 3 ounce containers and use it on salad with greens, tomatoes, bulgar wheat, and feta cheese. It takes me a good 30 minutes to eat the whole thing, which tricks my brain.

I am also a fan of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt--it's so versatile. I love to make salads and toppings of yogurt, diced cucumber, a little red onion and garlic with pepper. It's great with fresh dill, and I have plenty of that right now. Adding cilantro, coriander and cumin turns it into Raita, a dish that's popular in India.

Rainier cherries are now in season and were on sale at the grocery store, so I am one happy camper!

I love to use a small can of chicken breast meat mixed with curry and served on a corn tortilla. It is only 110 calories and very filling. A nice kick in flavor from the curry is what makes the snack and it gives me the protein I need. (no mayo used for this chicken salad!)

Good one. I like the cottage cheese idea. I have a hard time keeping myself reined in right after work, and that makes a lot of sense!

Made oven baked onion rings (very yum) and baked chicken tenders (pretty good) last night - recipes from the latest "Eating Well" magazine. I also made a gooey, crummy mess in my kitchen! And, I overate. Maybe next time I'll make either the chicken or the rings.

Tonight: Black bean soup. Less messy. I hope.

Mmm...can't wait til I have a kitchen again...I'd love to have some split pea soup. And lentils sound yummy too...especially spiced up with curry, I adore Indian food.

I thought of another one of my faves last night: corn on the cob! Especially sweet corn. Oh, in the summer...that is TDF!!!

I've also become a fan of peas and lentils:

-fill you up!!
-cheap cheap cheap!!

I found a brand of bagged split peas that comes with an msg-free seasoning packet. Made some yummy soup with that this week.

Found a recipe for homemade curry powder to mix with cooked lentils - that, a tiny bit of yogurt and a tiny bit of tomato puree, and lentils are spicy and delish! (At least, to me!!)

The Atkins Endulge choc caramel mousse has 4.5 fat grams.

I've never been a 'dieter' either. I think that is why I HAVE to have what I want. Even if it is just in smaller quantities. Trying to look at the BIG picture. Yeah, it may take a bit longer to lose all the weight that way, but the plan is that it should STAY off....this is a life change, not a temporary fix, right?

That said, we are planning a little trip in March that will involve a swimming pool...so I am probably going to need to be a bit stricker with myself if I want it off a bit faster. ~sigh~ A work in progress, LOL!

Well, Sparkers - I enjoyed the sweet-sour roasted rutabagas, carrots and beets! (How's THAT for introducing new foods to my diet??!) You just roast the veggies at 400 degrees for 30 mins then pour over an equal parts mixture of (lite) maple syrup and cidar vinegar...then roast for another 30 mins.

Very yummy. But I think I killed off my jelly roll pan - I didn't get foil covering the very ends, and that's where the very sticky sauce baked itself ON.

Hmmm....so, mixed results, I'd say. About 150 cals per 1 cup serving...about, so not lowest cal, but a fun way to eat them.

Joann, those Atkins bars sound pretty good. Can you tell me what the fat grams might be in a bar? So far it sounds like that might be pretty low cal. I haven't tried the skinny cow stuff yet but I am going to. I'm kinda new to the dieting thing. Not liking it to much but sooo need to lose some weight. You look like your doing an awesome job. Hope I can do as well.

Oh, sweet potatoes...forgot about those!

If you want to try a lower cal recipe for a side dish my kids love this one: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=613580

I love using the Sparkrecipe calculator. It makes tracking sooo much easier!

For low-cal chocolate treats, I have just found the Atkins 'Endulge' bars. The Chocolate Caramel Mousse Bar is pretty rich! Don't know about points, but it has 120 cal & 9grm of fiber. I used to love the Slimfast bars that were 120 calorie & choc & carmel...I liked those better. May have to ask my store why they stopped carrying them!

Maybe you can get some kind of trail mix & add a few mini choc chips,mini m&m's,a broken-up a high cocoa/super dark chocolate bar. Those raisens mixed in there really help stretch that chocolate sweetness.

Have you tried the Skinny Cow Icecream sandwiches? I love those after dinner. Do not feel deprived at all! The pkg states 2pts...it is 140cal & sooo worth it!


Can you tell I am a chocoholoic?! emoticon

I hated Sweet Potatoes until one time BF and I were at Lone Star Steakhouse with his aunt & uncle; both of them ordered the baked sweets. And of course proceeded to make me try them. I know the brown sugar/cinnamon doesn't make them healthy, but OMG, I LOVE those darn potatoes. So one time we actually took my DS with (he doesn't usually get to go because feeding him is expensive enough at McD's, let alone a steakhouse) and he gave me a weird look when I ordered and said "What?". So of course when food came, I made him taste it. Hah! Found a veggie he'll eat.

Thanks Newmoonde, the trail mix is a good idea. I am just a chocolate nut and have to have it. Well as far as low cal goes the lower the better because it would be less points. I'm still not the calorie counter I should be and I'm not good at dieting but the weight watchers is teaching in points so it's hard to think in calories instead of points. Not sure if your familiar with weight watchers but it's counting the total dietary fiber grams to calories to fat grams and you get your points. I like the popcorn idea too. I eat fruit during the day so to me that isn't a good night time snack. I'm lookin for indulgence more than anything.

TTLEELEE,

You know, I never liked sweet potatoes until my first experience with Japanese food. I had some of their vegetable Tempura with sweet potatoes in it and was amazed to find that I loved them made that way. I had never in my life had them any other way than the way people make them as casseroles for Thanksgiving!!! I like them MUCH better au natural! ;)

Acatch,

I like fiber one bars too...but they don't like me! lol

LGAL614,

How low cal are we talking? I have a couple of potential suggestions, but it depends on how low calorie you want your snack to be. I just bought a wonderful "trail" mix that is 140 calories a serving. It has dried fruit, nuts and dark chocolate...it's delicious...and a little goes a long way. Or you could try dipping fresh fruit in a few squares of dark chocolate you have melted in the microwave. OR...lol...you could have a lowfat chocolate pudding. My youngest son likes to dip fresh fruit in his pudding too. If you're not specifically looking for a chocolatey snack, I also like lite popcorn as an evening snack or sunflower seeds.

There's nothing like roasting fresh vegetables. You can do almost anything. They develop a sweater taste than if you were to steam. I beleive you retain more nutrients taht way also.
Any suggestions on a good night snack, low cal, I love chocolate but not super crazy about artificial sweetners. Hard to find snacks without them.

Mmmm...DTBeard...MUSHROOMS! I love grilled portabellos in the summer. But I do love just about any mushrooms. My kids HATE them. lol There's something I don't have to share! ;)

That's funny that you ate the whole head of cauliflower...but hey...it's better for you than a whole pizza by a long shot! ;) Good for you!!!

I have never liked beets...though I've never actually had them any way except pickled or whatever they call the dark purpley ones. Maybe I'd like them the way you are fixing them...will be waiting for your report!!!

Hi - haven't posted in a while...I adore roasted vegetables -- all kinds. Cauliflower and broccoli (with mushrooms) especially! Last night, I kid you not, I ate an entire head of cauliflower. : )

Tonight, am roasting beets and carrots with a sweet/sour sauce with ham. New recipe - will report back!!

Dawn,

I've had that medley too...it is delicious! Of course, anything with sugar snap peas is yummy to me!!! ;)

ASTORRES...girl, I'm with you on the spinach too. I like it cooked or fresh in salad or on a sandwich. See, I told you guys my list was just getting bigger and bigger! ;)

Joann, I like the idea of lime on the broccoli...maybe some pepper with that? Yum!!! I also love avocado...that's one I forgot about. And I'm a big fan of artichokes and asparagus too! I guess I just like all the "weird" veggies...hahaha! You are what you eat...snort!

LOL, we love the broccoli over here too! (the kids & I, DH hates the stuff) Have you had it with a bit of lime on it? It is a nice change every now & then.

Last night I made a dish with steamed broccoli, carrot strips & green beans with some lean sirloin. It is now on our favorites list!

Other healthy foods? Salmon, avocado, spinach, green beans, black beans, BLUEBERRIES...frozen, I have them just about daily either on my cereal or in my yogurt...yumo! Light Silk soymilk for my cereal...
Oh I love those fudgcycles too...& the Skinny Cow Mint sandwiches...or dried apricots dipped in melted dark chocolate. I have kept a baggyful in the fridge for a quick rich treat...till DH discovered how good they were & finished them off, lol. Guess I need to make a bigger batch next time!

At least our healthy habits are teaching ouf families to eat healthier too.

I have a hard time with vegetables, but I found this Green Giant Garden Vegetable Medley that's got sugar snap peas, red pepper, and new potatoes. It's like candy to me; I have it often as a side to a turkey burger or chicken breast.

Doing my best...one day at a time.

Yeah, I run into that sometimes too. Like last week I bought multi grain cinnamon raisin english muffins so I could have them for breakfast with a little low fat cream cheese. Well, my boys decided they like them too. I think I ended up getting one muffin out of the whole package!

But, I guess it's good that they like the healthy stuff...lol...just means I'll have to buy more. Although like you said, if it's very expensive, it's time to put the smackdown on 'em! ;)

The only problem I have in getting those bars now. Is my husband and son loves them, I told them they cost to much for them to have, and if they don't want to see ugly side of me they need to stop eating them :)

I love chocolate, mainly Dark, Cookies and Ice Cream, I'm not big on Milk Chocolate or White chocolate

Even when your day does not go the way you wanted it to, remember there is always tomorrow to start your day all over again.

Mmm...Pagona...I forgot about WW fudge bars. I used to get those and stash them in the freezer for those times I had a severe chocolate ice cream craving! I'll have to get back to that!!!

Tigerlillies...that IS hilarious! :D

Yes, well, the more I think about it, the more my list has been growing in my mind. It's actually amazing with how many healthy foods I do like that I have had such a struggle with my weight.

Mmmm...I totally love cottage cheese too and popcorn, and chicken breasts. Although I have to admit that my favorite healthy meat is turkey. I've taken to buying them year round and roasting them in the oven just so I have the fresh turkey breast meat to eat! YUM!!!

So you like soy nuts? I've never tried them but just today one of the trail mixes I bought has soy nuts in them. I'm looking forward to testing it out.

Thanks for sharing!!!

So funny that you just said you love broccoli and carrots - that's what I'm eating right now! How hilarious is that...?!

I just love blueberries... And blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes, oranges, apples, nuts (all kinds), dark chocolate (of course), soy nuts, 1% cottage cheese, couscous (yummy!), whole wheat grain breads, cereals, bagels, etc., popcorn, oatmeal, chicken breasts, lean ham... wow, that's quite the list. I'm sure there are more but that's about all I can think of off the top of my head. Thanks for asking... :-)

Mmmm...Cookies...you are right...tomatoes are up there for me too. Especially in the summer when you can grow them yourself or get fresh grown at the farm markets. Yum!!!

Let's see when they are season cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, grapes, Fuli apples. This is just a few.

I just got home from the grocery store a little while ago and just sat down to eat my late lunch. I am soooo hungry and just couldn't wait to eat some of the things I picked up at the store. That got me to thinking about a question my littlest son asked me the other day about my favorite healthy foods. I thought it would be fun to share some of our faves!!!

Might sound silly, but I love, love, LOVE fresh steamed broccoli and carrots. That's what I made with my lunch today. I'm also have some sweet juicy grapes, the kind that just "pop" in your mouth when you bite down on them...yum!!! I also bought myself some natural trail mix type snacks...I love the mixture of fruit, nuts and dark chocolate. Another big one that I love is Snow Peas. I could almost eat a whole bag of those by myself in a single sitting!

What about you all???

Dana :)
