Quick list for your fridge
I like fridge hangings. I always print lists for those "I feel like I am caving" moments or sample menu's for when I am in a hurry, or whatever reason. I thought I would share a quick list of lower calorie items you can print and hang on your fridge as an idea page. :) These are a great guide for DD's, atleast for me anyways!!!

I love this idea and thank you for posting. I do, however, feel compelled to mention that several of your zero calorie items do have calories. Coffee, tea, worcestershire sauce, most seasonings, garlic . . . all have calories. Admittedly, I'm OCD and count things that the average person wouldn't, but I use a LOT of hot sauce, and most of them are 5 calories or more per tsp (and I use several tsps!). Garlic adds up really quickly too.
It's still a great list!
do I have to count the calories in gum? If you don't swallow the actual gum?
they have these new "dessert" flavor ones that are really good. I especially like: key lime, apple pie, mint chocolate
they seem to last longer than the other (strawberry shortcake and orange dreamsicle).
chew well and prosper ;)
Great idea! Thank you for posting the list. I would add:
*1 Werther's SF Candy (8 calories)
Great idea and I'm posting the list along with my grocery list to remind myself of other things I always tend to forget I want to buy and try!
Brilliant list. Pat has a similar one somewhere.
Someone cleverer than me needs to add these to the Sticky about JUDDD.
Here is Pat's thread and list.
Thank you for finding the link. :)
