They also have mint, orange, Irish creme, and a few more flavors I think. Some may have a few more calories per stick.

I did find these at T.J.MAXX...picked cappuccino also...tastes great!!!

my 2 cents

Gautney precooked bacon is 20 calories a slice

Oikos Greek yogurt-mentioned in the first post-80 calories for the plain but if you stir in the walden farms or davinci syrups, it becomes enjoyable!

Swiss Miss diet hot chocolate, of course-and sometimes I thicken it up with gluc and sometimes I add WF sugar free chocolate syrup or others to make it a little more flavorful--I'm actually talking myself into this right now.

Does anyone make a lower calorie hummus at home? Using what I have at home, I made the barefoot contessa hummus recipe using peanut butter. If you throw in some extra hot sauce, you can't taste the peanut butter! I'm wondering if the WF peanut spread (disgusting on its own) or PB2 could be substituted.

I forgot PB2! I add a little stevia.

Lipton cup a soup has 50 cals.

WF honey dijon from netrition is really good.

If you can't tell, I have a sweet tooth. I also like the Crystal Light appletini and the Crystal Light or Russell Stovers sugar free hard candy. Not sure of cals right off but less than 10.

This isn't a find actually but last DD, I did a foil packet of squash, zucchini, green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms and half a potato (but that really isn't necessary-I just wanted potato) and seasoned it with Nature Seasoning. I would actually season next time with something spicier. I just sprayed the foil with olive oil Pam. Cooked on the grill for 15-20 minutes and I had a huge plate of food that seemed like it should have been way more calories than it was. I have a really hard time computing vegetables. I really need a kitchen scale!

I think that is all I have right now!

I found myself at Panera Bread today at lunch time, as I was contemplating what I could possibly order I noticed a sign that said "low fat chicken tortilla soup" I gave it a try and it was fabulous! It was 200 calories 90 of which is the tortilla strips they put on top - next time I will just ask them to leave those off and it will be really DD friendly! It was also very filling!

I purchased the Gortons grilled tilapia and Italian Herb fish in the freezer section-it is only 80-90 calories per piece-I cooked up BOTH pieces and had a HUGE meal for only 160 calories and added veggies and a salad for about 260 calories but if you only did the one piece as normal people would you could get a really filling meal for only 180 calories! And they are good!

For Trader Joe's fans out there - the chicken potstickers are a quick and delicious microwave meal. A serving is 7 good size potstickers and the calories are 230. Find them in the frozen foods. I dip them lightly in soy sauce with garlic added. Of course when I am not dieting I eat quite a bit more than 7 so don't expect them to be terribly filling. But 7 is still 13 grams of protein.

I haven't started JUDD yet (4.8 pounds to go on hcg), but I've been on ********* creating some menus. Here is one I made for an induction DD (I know I need to eat 500 calories):

2 extras large eggs
2 mugs coffee
3 servings turkey bacon
1 serving ground turkey (4 oz.)
1 serving apple cider vinegar
5 servings coffeemate powdered creamer
2 cups Baby Spinach
1 serving laughing cow
1 serving tofu noodles


Fat(g) - 25.85g
Carbs(g) - 12.26g
Prot(g) - 50.88g
Cals: 515

883 mg. of sodium, does that seem like a lot?

Lean cuisine has this same dish now, it's in a bag not a box and it's very good

I'm not familiar with that recipe, but I make hummus lower in fat and calories by using only 2 tsp tahini, leaving out the olive oil, and adding just enough of the bean liquid to make it creamy.

Sargento now has ultra thin cheeses for 40 calories. Of course they say a serving is 3 slices for 120 calories. But on a DD, I would love just 1. I saw the commercial yesterday. Colby Jack, Provalone, and Mild Cheddar.

This isn't food but I just bought some after having it today (a DD) at my friend's house, and they ship to USA and Canada (they're canadian)-- David's tea brand, Forever Nuts flavor tea.
Caffeine free (b/c I'm sensitive to the point of ridiculousness) and OMG it tastes like nutty, rich, amazing! Almonds and cinnamon, and has apples and beetroot (beets) in it as well, so it's earthy, deep flavored, and PINK!
VERY satifying, made me feel like I was having almond cookies and tea. This is going to be a DD staple for me.

I just ordered a HUGE can b/c I drank 2 giant mugs at my friend's house in the 2hrs I was there, I couldn't get enough.

I also ordered a "super chocolate" one, that has cocoa in it and is 0 calorie, so I'll report back.

Oh! Speaking of tea...
Blood Orange Chocolate Red Tea.
Made by Republic of Tea and distributed to Cost Plus World Market only.
It's absolutely fabulous! One bag makes 2 - 12 oz mugs (no matter what the package says). I drink it with 1 packet Truvia.

I checked online and they don't have *that* Republic of Tea available, but I'll check them out when I'm in the store.

Also, I just bought a new cordless hot water kettle, and it has 5 preset temperature settings for the various teas (white, green, oolong, black, and french press coffee). Breville, if anyone's interested

John Soules Foods grilled chicken, 8oz bag for $2.50--
Found this at WMart, in fridge. 3oz serving is 110 calories, 25g protein.

Little more expensive than canned chicken but has better/firmer texture. My new favorite DD protein!

Re: lower cal hummus--
you can leave out the tahini entirely & add a tsp or so of *toasted* sesame oil. It gives you more sesame flavor than 1/2 a cup of tahini!

What a clever idea, Jenny. I'll have to remember that about sesame oil for tahini in hummus. BTW, there's a cauliflower recipe for hummus on my website that is REALLY good and naturally much lower in calories than hummus made from real chickpeas.

For any Canadians, there's a restaurant chain here called Kelseys-- they have a "healthy" food section of the menu now-- and I can recommend the roasted mushroom salad-- it has mushrooms, artichoke hearts, greens, pesto, and a 10cal dressing-- for 190 cal.
you could add chicken etc, but then the count goes up. It was really filling with just the mushrooms-- I couldn't finish it!

great find!

I put this in the DD recipes section, too - but I highly recommend taking a cup of light chocolate soy milk (perhaps almond milk for those who don't do soy), with 2 TBLS of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) and blending with crushed ice.

It makes a delicious and filling peanut butter cup DD "shake" that I had for brunch - for 135 cals.

Progresso Light Soups - most are 80 calories for 1/2 the can - which puts the whole can (a more reasonable serving size) at only 160 calories.


THANK YOU for mentioning the sugar free sweet gherkins! Perfect for when you need to just EAT SOMETHING with lots of flavor!
