It takes some getting used to. I switched from half and half. The almond milk isn't as rich.

I bought unsweetened Silk Pure Almond and just love it for drinking, and for being such a calorie bargain. I don't care for it in coffee at all!

I agree: I find almond milk in coffee nasty. For hot coffee, I sometimes try fat free half and half, but in general, I much prefer my 1 T of organic valley heavy cream. Yum! For 50 calories, it's worth it for me, but I know most folks here would rather have solid food for those 50 calories.

I did an experiment on my last DD: I made one strawberry shake with 1/2 C frozen strawberries (from our garden), 1 C almond milk, 1 t gluccoccaman, liquid splenda, 1/4 t vanilla. And I compared it to my usual shake made with 1/2 C frozen berries, 1 T heavy cream, a drop of liquid splenda and 1/4 t vanilla. The calories are about the same, but the shake made with gluc and almond milk tasted bland and completely artificial. The shake made with heavy cream tasted fully of our strawberries. Less volume, but far, far better. So I'll stick with my real foods.

Oh, I agree about it being good by itself. I buy the unsweetened kind and add vanilla extract, sucralose, and cinnamon to make a dessert-y drink for low cals/carbs. Quite tasty.

It took me a while to get used to it, but I love almond milk in coffee now.

Both of your shakes have 1/2 C frozen strawberries, liquid Splenda, and 1/4 tsp vanilla. So that's the same. But is the rest of the comparison missing something? I only ask because for one shake you then add only 1 tbsp heavy cream, but the other you dilute with a full cup of almond milk and then say the flavor is more dilute. .. bland and completely artificial. That would have the comparison completely off, so wondered if there was any missing ingredient to the one using the bit of cream. Although the shake diluted with a cup of almond milk wouldn't have anything artificial in it except the Splenda, but you used that in both shakes, so it wouldn't be that. But I can see how diluting one shake with almost a cup more fluid would dilute the flavor of it more.

And I agree about almond milk being icky in coffee. For some things it's awfully nice. For other applications, it just isn't a tasty substitute. For coffee, I just use 2 tbsp of half & half, 40 calories, and like the taste of my coffee a lot. Can't take the oil slick floating on the top of the coffee from heavy cream, but whole milk isn't rich enough. Half & half is perfect for me.

I drink my coffee black, but did try some Almond milk in a cup just for curiosity. Much too bland for me.

But, I do use Almond milk in my protein shakes with a great deal of success, and have been doing that for years! I may add berries, some DaVinci syrups, but on most days, I simply add two eggs with the protein and Almond Milk.

On another note, I've found another DD staple in the way of broth.

Herb-Ox Chicken broth.....and, the best thing about it......no sodium...and at 10 calories per cup, it's mighty handy to have around for a DD.

I'm sipping on a cup right now, and it's surprisingly delicious and so satisfying!!

I used to use this when I belonged to WW years ago and really liked it, too! I'm going to try and find it again.

Speaking of broth, with as much chicken as we eat, I save the bones in the freezer. Every two weeks or so, I throw them in the slow cooker overnight and make the best chicken bone broth.

It's a staple of my DDs with a spoonful of miso paste in it. Gives it some saltiness, protein, and probiotics (miso is fermented), for only 40 calories. Yum!

Snyger: I do this too. I also save a freezer bags to toss in any vegetable ends that would otherwise be thrown away. Then, I either add it to the chicken broth or make vegetable broth. Waste not.....

I like my coffee black and drink it that way on UD and DD, but today (a DD) I felt like I needed a little something "more" in my afternoon coffee to make it feel more substantial... I bought some Land O Lakes Mini Moo's. They are liquid creamers in individual little cartons, made from half & half and preservatives, and don't need refrigeration so you could take them with you. They are 10 calories each.

Kroger makes their own brand of butter or cheese sprinkles @ 5 calories per teaspoon.
I mix 1tsp each with 1T almond milk to make a cheese sauce for veggies or shiratake noodles, so about 12 calories for the sauce(it's thick, but there's usually enough liquid on the veggies or noodles to make it saucy).

In the "health food" section of Kroger, they have Imagine broths in the cartons. I found one on Manager's Special called No-Chicken Broth. It's tasty and organic. It's just 10 calories per cup. At first I thought it wasn't salty enough, but I got used to it and really like it. I get little tastes of the veggies here and there on my tongue.

Having DD staples on hand can REALLY come in handy. My husband wasn't feeling well tonight, and needed some food. He wanted a bacon cheeseburger. I fried up three strips of bacon, a Bubba burger (beef) and a soy burger (for me), and some onions. Topped his Bubba burger with American cheese and my soy burger with Laughing Cow. He got two slices of bacon, and I had one.

We both enjoyed our bacon cheeseburgers... his came in around 800 calories. Mine around 200 (burger 75, bacon 60, laughing cow 35, onions 25).

Hi Everyone,
I am currently doing the HCG diet, but as I get closer to my goal would like to try JUDDD. This thread is full of great low calorie ideas!

Fresh Selections (Kroger brand) of broccoli and cauliflower florets. Or any brand from any store.

The whole 12 oz. bag is 100 calories. I find them to be a lifesaver and I just munch on them raw. I don't even like raw broccoli much, but on DD anything tastes good! LOVE the cauliflower though. I can't believe how much healthier my veggie intake is on JUDDD.

I eat way more veggies on JUDD too!

Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini ... Did I mention zucchini?

1 medium zucchini is only 2 cals with .3 carbs!
1 large is only 5 cals and .5 carbs.

Hi...****** is saying that's for baby zucchini...

I'm finding 30 calories for a medium one (200g)
and 50 for a large (325g).

Still a lot of food for not too many calories!

Yes, I agree. I think that's why I'm feeling so much healthier on JUDDD. I think on LC I had gotten used to a lettuce salad once a day. Not much more than that. Now, I eat tons of freshe vegies - usually in the form of soup - and I can eat a seemingly endless supply. Or, maybe it only feels this way. And they are all so tasty.

I call DD my "veggie days" at home with my family. Never run out of the fresh veggies!!!

Ok this is not a recommendation but a warning. I purchased salt free beef and chicken soup base brand name MARSHALLS CREEK SPICES from amazon a while back. Nice, big containers, good price and salt free.
I opened the beef today thinking I'd have a cup of broth. It tastes like insecticide. So does the chicken one. There was no beef or chicken flavor, just a nasty chemical taste that I can only say tastes like bug spray.
