Wink Brooklyn's Grocery Thread

This is the thread where we will post the foods/grocery items that are helping us through this journey.

That is the link for Butter Spray. I use it on air-popped popcorn, cooked veggies, even toast.

Your turn! I'm looking forward to hearing everyone else's tools.

I have lots... thats why I had initially started this thread however SAPF and I can't figure out what the heck happened to it...

Anyways, here it goes:

- Del Monte Real Fruit Popsicles
- Skinny Cow Ice Cream Bars (they're so good that I even feel guilty eating them)
- Baked Ruffles (good for a lil' treat)
- Diet Vanilla Coke & Diet Coke w/ Lime (i'm hooked on both)
- Silhouette Mousse

That's it for now.. Although, i'm sure i'll think of more later..

Diet Coke especially the lemon and lime ones. And diet mountian dew which is sweet enough to take care of a sugar craving.

Light Miracle Whip...because I wont give up tuna salad sandwiches. It doesnt taste chemical-ly like the hellmans light.

Morning Star Farms meatless chicken patties, chicken nuggets and buffalo chicken nuggets. They taste pretty close to the real thing. My husband LOVES them and hes not even watching his weight.

love the butter spray too.

Balance energy/meal replacement bars. Try the cookie dough one. Yumm They are all pretty good.

Blue Bunny reduced fat orange cream pops.

Dunkin donuts carmel iced coffee with milk and equal...much lower cals then a coolata or latte.

Baked doritoes with salsa

Splenda

Theres a cheddar and turkey sausage out there thats really good but I cant remember who makes it.

Dannon fit and light yogurt.


Im sure Ill have more too.

Speaking of taglines, Gretchen, I think I should get royalties for yours!

Ok, now on to the business of my cart. Here are the staples, in no particular order:
  • 99% fat free turkey breast chops
  • Fresh tilapia
  • Those handy aluminum packs of tuna
  • Smart Ones Orange and Cream Treats (40 cal's, 1/2 gram of fat, and 5 carbs!)
  • Flash frozen loose asparagus
  • Shelled edamame (soybeans)
  • Light n' Lively lowfat cottage cheese single servings (4 oz.)
  • Pre-washed fresh spinach, romaine, baby carrots, and mixed greens
  • Apples and plums
  • Frozen blueberries
  • All Bran Extra Fiber
  • Skim Milk
  • Plain, fat free yogurt
  • Designer Whey Protein Powder (not a grocery item, but it's a BIGTIME staple for me, nonetheless!!!!)
  • Chicken breasts
  • Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • Bottled lemon juice
  • Reduced fat feta
  • Long grain brown rice
  • Long grain basmati
  • Flash-frozen, individually packaged salmon fillets
  • Hellman's reduced calorie mayo (I'm only allowed 1 tbsp)
  • Pepperidge Farm Carb Style 100% Whole Wheat Bread (stone ground)
  • I don't buy these, I grow them, but for me these are critical also: fresh basil, rosemary, mint, and italian parsley.

There's an awful lot more that helps to keep me on plan -- I always have the same breakfast, mid-morning, and mid-afternoon snacks, but my lunches and dinners vary wildly, and I relish their variety. The above, though, are the items that MUST be on hand for life as I know it to continue.
