Some Of Your Favorite JUDDD DD Food Items That Get You Through The Day

I thought this would be a great thread for us to see what others are using to keep their DD calories in check. Bet there are lots of good items/recipes out here that just haven't been posted or talked about yet!

What items have you found that help? What recipes are your "stand by" recipes that you use over and over again? What snacks/foods can't you live without on your DDs?

My DD "staples" are: Egg Beaters, Oatmeal, Veggies of ALL kinds, fruit, CoCoPop Cakes, FF cheese and dairy products, Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts, FF dressings, DD muffin, homemade soup, shiritaki noodles, Low Cal Bread, Joseph's Pita Bread, Low Cal Wraps, Trader Joe's Low Carb/Low Cal Tortillas, Spicy Chinese Green Beans, to name the most important ones for me. I eat most of this every DD, especially all the veggies.

A lot of the same for me!
Every DD I have one of the DD muffins..and a big bowl of gluc pudding made with protein powder.
Hot tea or coffee, bags of ready mixed salad veg...walden farms bacon dressing, carrot sticks..sometime with salsa to dip in, rhubarb...super low cal..about 15 cal a 1/2 cup..I stew it with zero cal sweetners and sometime falvourings.
Fage total 0%, tuna, powdered egg whites.
Shirataki noodles..to make ouizs shirataki "oatmeal", or to bulk out a soup or stir fry!

Great idea for a thread, Beeb..lets home we get lots of other posters...I could do with some new DD staples!

Hugs
Jo

For me it has to be my General Tso's sauce. Sweet and spicy hot goodness with so few calories per serving it's amazing. I make it with 0 calorie orange beverage now instead of chicken broth, so even fewer calories.

I use it over my stir fried veggies, but also just as a great dip for chunks meat. I also put it over shirataki noodles for a filling meal that is almost NO calories. LOL

The recipe is posted at #402 over in our recipe thread, on page 14.

It's a pretty basic recipe and very adaptable. I like mine spicy hot, so stir in a lot of hot chili paste. You can use chicken broth for the base, which I think is the norm, but also a 0 calorie beverage makes a fabulous base flavor too. I love the stuff!

For me its raw veggies, zucchini, broccoli, cucumber, celery and carrots
Boiled eggs, tuna and salmon patties I'm hooked on right now too and protein powder. Big salads for dinner with spinach and romaine. Maple grove farms sugar free balsamic and raspberry vinagrettes are awesome and 5 cals for 2 T. I also make a dip for my veggies with walden farms honey mustard, franks hot sauce and some spicey mustard.
I need to get some gluc but just havet been able to afford it. Even some oat fiber or wheat protein. I noticed them on ntrition and they are they are farely cheap.
You guys are eating btter than me on DDs...lol

Shelly, I love the Maple Grove Farms Raspberry vinaigrette too. Very good. Hard to believe it only has those 5 little cals for 2 tbsps.

Linda, are those cocopop cakes good? No one sells them around here, but I went to their website and if you order 3 boxes, shipping is free. Even if I buy the smaller boxes, it's still a lot of cakes. Are they the size of a corn tortilla? That's kind of what it looks like. What do they taste like? Do you get the wheat or whole grain? I wonder how long they would be fresh?

if you have a whole foods near you Kathleen, they have a different version of the cocopops --I haven't tried them, but I saw that the nutritional info for the corn ones was the lowest (I think 11 calories/cake).

YES, what ouiz says. They taste a little like a corn rice cake type thing. These are the size of a corn tortilla and you really do need to try them before buying that many. Some like these , some don't. Have you looked in your grocery store, usually in the produce department? That is where I get mine.

Today is a DD. I plan on the following:

seltzer lemon water
low sodium sliced turkey meat (Trader Joes. Most excellent taste)
hummus
egg white scramble with fresh salsa
Tonight: 25 calorie Swiss Diet Cocoa with a heavy squirt of whip cream

If I have room for more, will supplement with veggies

I may play around with a low calorie one minute muffin. Instead of an egg, try it with egg white. Not sure if it will work. lol


Do any of you drink once in awhile on UD? I may have some wine twice a month. Wonder how it effects those who chose to do that.

There's one way to find out.


Well, editing to add that all this stuff varies from person to person. My calories might not work at all well for you, or vice versa. Foods that don't affect you may make it difficult for me. Etc.

Once you get settled into your JUDDD routine, have a glass and wine and see what happens.

The *proof of the pudding* in however you choose to do your diet is in the results. I always figure, if weight loss is occurring, I'm probably doing a good job for my individual needs.

DD, UD, whatever day it falls on a Saturday, I drink! I go to a dance club with DBF every Saturday night and have 2 rum cosmos, most times. Hasn't effected my weight loss but let me tell you I get a better "buzz" on my DDs! Must be less food to absorb the alcohol!

There's no whole foods where I live. I will check out the produce section though, I never thought to look there. Maybe a health food store or Trader Joes will carry something like these? I'll take a closer look next time I go to TJs.

nikki--I have recently gotten into making stewed rhubarb--I just returned from a visit to the UK where it was featured at most breakfast bars. I looked at a package of frozen rhubarb and was astonished to see how lowcal/lowcarb it was! I have been adding some of the new SF Torani flavours (brown sugar cinnamon or vanilla cinnamon yum) and keeping a bowl in the fridge. Sometimes I put it on top of my protein glucomannan pudding! Such great great stuff!

Hi Stevie - it's nice to see you here. So far, so good with me with the wine. In fact, I had 2 glasses this evening. I track everything using fit day.

Lol! Thought I was the only one to enjoy stewed rhubarb on my Dd's. It is actually a veggie, but far too sour to enjoy without sweetener.
I stew mine with a mixture of erythritol, davincis and sometimes some orange or strawberry flavoring. Yummy with Greek yoghurt,
When I was younger we used to grow it in the garden, and have it stewed and sweetened on our morning bowl of cereal, which I loved!

Linda: I was at Wegmans earlier getting something and walked past the CocoPop machine. I remembered that you posted about them in this thread about DDs, so I picked up a package. For 16 cal/pop, they're worth a try. I'm gonna take one or two to work with me for tomorrow's DD.

Shelly: I'm interested in your beloved tuna muffin recipe. Is it posted somewhere, or would you mind posting it here? Thanks!

Yay! I love getting new ideas! I don't like to be bored.

Here's some of my staples: 98% FF hot dogs, light double fiber bread (40 cal/slice), lite miracle whip, eggs, gluc pudding, 100-cal oatmeal packets, SF jello, lettuce (green leaf, romaine, iceberg) salads w/ chopped grape tomatoes, Maple Grove Farms FF Vidalia onion dressing (20 cal/2 Tbls), tuna packets (70 cal/packet), Thomas' breakfast thins - blueberry (1/2 is 50 cal), Perdue Short Cuts fresh grilled chicken strips, WF honey Dijon dressing, Swiss Miss diet hot cocoa (25 cal) w/ almond milk (5 cal/oz), caffe d'vita SF mocha cappuccino (35 cal), baby carrots, English cukes, Flatout wraps -spinach (45 cal for half). Once it gets colder I'll be big into soups...light canned from Campbell's, homemade Shiratoodle soup, or whatever good recipes I can find.

Try this with your CocoPops. Take a wedge of laughing cow cheese (I like the herb/garlic) and spread it on the CocoPop. I split the cheese in half and take 2 Pops and I got a great snack for 51 calories!!

You cook it on top of the stove just like cranberries. My most favorite thing is rhubarb pie - we grew it when I lived in California. I used to like it over cottage cheese, too. It is very expensive here and not that great, but I do get it when we go to CA and "stew" it up.

Hee-hee-hee...you assume I know what to do with cranberries. Lol!

But really, put it in a pan on the stove and cover with...plain water?...sweetened water?...just sweetener?...water, then sweeten it once it's cooked? Sorry if I'm being dense, but working with rhubarb is just to me. Thank you!!
